Recently, Jane from California asked me « how to wear mustard yellow? I like this color but I’m not sure how to match it with my clothes ».
I agree, this color is a really nice one and unlike its cousins « light/pale/pastel yellow » or « lemon yellow », mustard yellow is very flattering for any complexion.
Let’s see how to wear it
1/ As a light touch with a pair of shoes or a scarf
2/ Wear it with neutral colors
This is not a real surprise, but neutral colors allow us to easily wear any colors in addition. This is my favorite combination : 0% risk – 100% chic!! That’s how we usually wear colors here in France.
Mustard Yellow will perfectly work with any of them.
Mustard Yellow + White or off-white
Mustard Yellow + Navy blue or Denim
Mustard Yellow + Grey or Black
4/ Add complementary colors as turquoise, emerald, dark green or khaki green

A lot of combinations are possible but I will always complete with a neutral color…
5/ In any case, avoid with Mustard Yellow :
– Pastel colors
– Other bright colors (red, fuschia, bright purple, electric blue, apple green…)
– A whole yellow combination
Doing some web search, I found that « blue + yellow » beautiful picture. Isn’t it an amazing color combination for interior decoration?…
