How to Wear Yellow Green

June 18th, 2009

Yellow-Green + Orange + Blue
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

Today, we’re putting forth a style challenge: wearing the color yellow green.  Yellow green isn’t the most flattering of colors, nor does it pair well with all other colors.  We found that the best way to wear yellow green is with other equally bold colors–bright orange and a nice warm shade of blue.  Here’s how to get the look of yellow green:

1.  Start with a yellow green sweater, preferably in a classic shape.
2.  Layer under your yellow green sweater a blouse in a bright color.  We love the interplay of the warm, bright orange peeking out from under the yellow green sweater.  Plus, the ruffles on this blouse add a bit of visual drama.
3.  Slip on a pair of brightly colored pants.  Note that even though these pants are blue, they’re a warm shade of blue.  The warmth of the blue helps it pair with the bright orange and the yellow green, both of which fall on the warm side of the color wheel.
4.  Finish off the outfit with a pair of statement shoes: a pair of medallion themed sandals with a light heel.

    Perfect timing! I just bought a blazer and blouse in this shade. Orange is a great suggestion, as I was thinking gray and other neutrals.

    Wow I just bought a sweater that’s close to this color as well! Although it may be more of a ‘mustard’ yellow… Great tips! I’m going to keep this in consideration the next time II wear the sweater 😀

    I think yellow-green looks gorgeous paired with a deep plum color, every time.

    I like Anna’s idea of pairing with deep plum, which by the way, is an extremely easy to work with color I recently discoverd.

    Agree, finding this look quite autumnal… Would pair the green with a light blouse in cream or white….

    I wear my yellow green cardigan with white and black ( or white and denim to let the bright color remain the main focus.
