You Said: Maybe to Mustard Yellow

Stretch Vintage Cord SkirtWe asked: Would you wear Mustard Yellow?

You said:  Maybe.  It was a close vote, with 53% of you saying Yes to Mustard Yellow, and the remaining 47% voting No.

Style tip? We’re fans of all things yellow, and mustard is no exception.  The muted hue looks great paired with navy blue (or even grey) for Autumn.  Until then, you can wear it with orange for a warm, earthy color combo.

Next question: We’ve been glued to the TV for the Olympics, where everyone’s gunning for Gold in Beijing.  Back at home, though, is Gold as appealing?  Tell us, would you wear Gold colored clothing?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    I think that the mustard yellow color is very good for bottoms! I can’t get away with it near my face, though, and I suspect that many women can’t. Love the J. Crew skirt!

    Great point about mustard yellow being easier to wear as a bottom instead of a top. My skin tone doesn’t work great with mustard, but I do love it in skirt form. Though, I do have a mustard yellow peacoat that I love…so it’s all relative :)

    I tried on a mustard yellow top the other day, and it doesn’t seem to be a color that’s complimentary to my skin tone. Though I have no doubt it may be a good color for some women!

    Also this is beside the point, but i can’t help but notice that the model in the picture has really tanned arms and legs, but super pasty white neck and face!

    I know it’s one of these “trend” colors that will be out soon enough, but I really like this as a statement piece. I got a great mustard-colored swing coat last year and I just love it in a retro early-1960s-chic kind of way

    Mmm your coat sounds lovely. I really like my mustard yellow coat too, regardless of whether it’s “in” or not.

    I agree!
