Hi Everyone! I wanted to take a moment to talk about these fabulous mustard yellow trousers and how to wear yellow pants. In a previous blog post regarding Fall Trends, I mentioned red and yellow as hot colors for the Fall season. Therefore, when I discovered these yellow pants, I immediately found myself obsessing over them. I am a fan of unique statement pieces, and these pants certainly make a statement. Yellow trousers for the win!
I love wide leg trousers; and the fact I found a pair of mustard colored trousers was a pretty big score. Yellow??? Yes…yellow. Generally speaking, I’m not a big fan of yellow, mainly because my skin tone is already yellow. Yellow on yellow is really not a good look for me. However, when worn correctly, yellow can pack a fashion punch. I needed mustard yellow pants in my life. It was that simple.
I packed these pants for our Mexico trip and completely forgot to pack the black lace top I had planned on wearing with them. (I promise, you won’t look like an overly enthusiastic bumble bee by wearing yellow and black) Therefore, I was forced to get creative and opted to wear them with one of my one-piece bathing suits. As it turns out, leopard print and mustard yellow make for a wonderful pairing. (almost as well as leopard and red) Not to sound like a broken record, but the functionality of the one-piece bathing suit is stellar. Heeding my own advice, I wore my one-piece leopard print bathing suit with my yellow trousers and patted myself on the back for my ingenuity in saving my ensemble. In case you haven’t read it, here’s my blog post on Why I love the one-piece bathing suit.
Not only are these pants stylish, the price point is great. The sash belt is a detail that adds flourish and panache. These pants are also incredibly slimming because of the the higher waist fit. When wearing an attention grabbing color such as yellow, rest assured; when paired with complementary colors and patterns, it’s a fashion statement that exudes confidence and playfulness. Yellow pairs wonderfully with navy, grey, black, white, as well as a myriad of patterns. A simple black top and cropped black cardigan would look fabulous with these trousers. I personally think leopard and mustard yellow go together like salt and pepper. It just works! Another option with yellow pants is a white button down (which most of us have in our closets), black blazer, and black shoes. Navy or bright cobalt blue is another option when wearing bright yellow.
In conclusion, don’t be afraid to step out of your sartorial comfort zone by wearing bold and playful colors. Many of us are fearful of wearing bright colors. Sometimes I worry about being silently ridiculed or judged for my outfits. But then I think about being true to myself, playing by my own fashion rules, and allowing my clothing to showcase my personality.
As an aside….how you would style yellow trousers? What fashion risks do you take? I’d love to hear from you! Additionally, I challenge you to step outside your comfort zone by rocking a bold color you’d normally be hesitant to wear. See what kind of feedback you get from other people. You might be surprised how one item can be a conversation starter. Oh….and one more thing…..please feel free to share this post via Facebook, Twitter, etc with others because sharing is caring! 🙂
