Mellow for Yellow—The Color You Won’t Believe You Can Look Good In

June 16th, 2017 at 2:00am

Yellow, also known as the color between green and orange in the color rainbow, complementary to blue. Color ripe like an egg’s yolk, lemons, or the center of a daisy. According to Pantone, the color of the season is yellow. So now that summer’s here, it’s time to replace your black with your yellows. I have always loved the color yellow but never expected it to be the color of summer 2017. Maybe you are not completely comfortable in an all-out yellow head-to-toe outfit, but why not add a little to an outfit?

Rocking Glasses

Start off with a vision. Yellow, clear glasses are a way to go. From polarized to clear, the way to go this summer is one piece PC lens rimless ultra-bold colorful mono block sunglasses. These futuristic glasses are a good accessory to add to any ordinary outfit. Whether it’s yellow or another color, these glasses are the future.

Out With Plain Denim

Since a blue is a complementary color of yellow it’s good to add in some denim with your yellow. A fun easy way to change up old jean shorts is adding some patches or embroidery. This season, add the decals whether you are going for a nice walk, a festival, or just hanging out in your home town.

Top to Top

Off-the-shoulder, ribbed, and white are a great way to tie together the embroidery design on the shorts. This current top and daisy shorts are a perfect pair for the summer with the breeze on your shoulders and wind in your hair.

Never Go Wrong With Accessories

To tie this whole look together, I added in little details of yellow everywhere. I paired the look with a daisy choker since the neckline is straight across. I also paired my look with a matching bracelet and white daisy socks. Pearl earrings were the perfect touch to keep it casual and classy.


Keep the shoe choice simple with Converse or any other white sneakers, such as slip-on sneakers. You could even go simple with a sandal.
