If you didn’t already know –yellow, is this summer’s hottest color. When it comes to yellow, a little goes a long way. How can you not adore yellow? It’s so uplifting! And on many occasions daring. Without even realizing it until now, it’s been taking over my closet slowly. With so many shades to pick from, yellow is so much fun to pay around with and incorporate into your favorite summer outfits. Here are 6 different ways I’ve been wearing yellow a lot lately:

Hello, mini dress and leg appeal! Whatever color yellow you go for, make sure you find one that works best with your skin tone otherwise you run the risk of looking washed out.

For cool skin tones, go for pastel yellows and for warm skin tones go for rich, golden shades. Pair with a strappy pair of wedges or sandals. This will be your favorite summer dress ever!

Find yellow earring that uses textures and fabrics, like beads, tassels, or even feathers.

If you’re feeling a little spunky and, after all, you should because it’s summer –why not try adding a bit of yellow to your usual outfit. Don’t worry about finding the perfect yellow top to match a particular outfit. Instead, casually ease yellow into your wardrobe with a small summery piece like a crop top that could be layered with a cardigan, sleeveless vest or even an oversized shirt. This way you can wear the trend and still look sophisticated.

Bathing Suit
