Style Advice of the Week

School’s out; summer’s in! Throw away all those yawn-inducing neutrals and inject some color into your wardrobe because this season is the time to shine. And while you’re at it, why not go for some yellow? If you’re like me and run for cover if someone even mentions the word yellow, don’t worry; I’ve got some advice for you with the help of this lovely Fashionista.

Bright neon yellows are sometimes too much to handle for color-phobes so to make yellow more wearable, opt for muted pastel pieces. This, of course, is not limited to only yellow, but for any color. Pastels have been a hit this season, making appearances from the biggest fashion runways like Jason Wu to nail polish collections across the country. This Fashionista hops onto this season’s major trend by wearing a pastel yellow sundress with a fitting sunflower pattern (similar style here) that makes her stand out from the crowd. Dresses are a great way to add color to your wardrobe because they’re effortless. You don’t have to spend hours piecing together an outfit or worry about buying clothes to match a bright piece. She accessorized this outfit with a soft coral leather cross-body bag and embellished silver sandals that add a touch of glamour without overpowering the dress.

If you’re still hesitant about yellow, why not try adding this summer’s color in different ways? If dresses aren’t your style, try wearing a cute yellow tank top like this one. Confused about what to wear with it? Try pairing bright tops with jean shorts for a festival-ready look. Alternatively, accessorize a white dress with a yellow cross-body bag or necklace. You could even paint your nails to match!

Although I’ve seen this trend pop up on the runways and streets, I wasn’t sure I could pull the look off, but this Fashionista had me hooked on pastels. Looks like I’ll be spending the next few days scouring the mall in search for my very own yellow sundress. Are you ready to add color to your wardrobe this summer?
