How to Wear Yellow

A popular summery bright, yellow can be a tough color to pull off. It does take some hunting to find the right shade; the right hue can immediately transform you into a sun kissed beach goddess or if wrong, you might be giving off more of a wan, jaundice baby vibe. As a general guide, darker skin tones and hair colors can typically wear bolder shades. Blondes more often do better with softer, cooler shades. Red heads can wear honey tones and golds well. But there are certainly exceptions, and it's well advised to hold up several options in front of a mirror to find your best hue. Still feeling uneasy? Maybe tone it down by pairing a dash of yellow with other trusted neutrals, or add just a pop of sunshine in the form of a scarf or accessory.
