How to Wear Yellow

Thrifted Yellow Dress

Yellow is such a beautiful color, however I am usually terrified to wear it. I don’t want to end up looking like a(n) [insert anything obnoxiously yellow here]. So to be safe I stay away from this color. That was until I learned about Color Analysis, and realized that yellow clothing shouldn’t be scary to wear, (if it is the right shade of yellow). Basically with color analysis, you can determine the right shades for your skin tone according to your skin color, eye color, and hair color. This video by Mimi Ikonn is a great resource to determine which colors work for you. Mustard Yellow Thrifted Dress

Normally I don’t care about fashion rules, and I tend to wear what I want, but after doing a color analysis on myself, it revealed that fall colors look best on me (i.e. mustard yellow). I realized I never liked wearing yellow, because I was wearing the wrong shade of yellow. Now that I know which shade to wear, there will be lots of yellow in my future.
Dress from Savers Thrift Store
This cute Club Monaco dress was only $6 at Savers Thrift Store. This turquoise necklace is from Savers Thrift Store as well. I love how mustard yellow and turquoise look together. It is a combination that never fails.

    What a lovely dress. I’m not scared of yellow but of lavender. I’d love to do a colour test anyway. πŸ™‚

      Lavender is a scary color as well! Did the test confirm which shade of purple is ideal for you?

      Thank you! Yellow is a scary color. You should definitely do the color analysis to see what shade of yellow works for you.
