What is it about color that terrifies some of us? We admire it from afar. We even like it on other people but we’re scared to wear it ourselves. Admittedly, this was me not too long ago.
I’m a bonafide neutral lover – from my makeup to my clothes. I love the creams, beiges and bright whites. But like I often do from time to time in other areas of my life, I like to step outside my comfort zone in fashion and wear colors that bring out another side of me.
If you ask me a yellow flowy dress is a summer season staple. This one has a classic silhouette that sways beautifully when you walk and though the all-yellow color might seem bold, it’s actually quite eye-catching in the best way.
When I do wear yellow (which is suprisingly pretty often) I get a lot of comments from people that go along the lines of them wishing they could pull the shade off too. They’ll say my skin tone is perfect for the color and how they wouldn’t dream of trying it on.
Well for one, you never know until you try. Fashion makes it simple to be a risk-taker because if it doesn’t work, you can easily take it off. So to that I always suggest they try it the next time they’re at a store.
And second, yellow – like all colors – comes in different shades. From pastel yellow to deep mustards, there’s a shade for everyone, making it almost impossible not to find one that suits your skin tone.
My rule of thumb when it comes to choosing the right yellow for your skin tone is to go deeper in color if you’re on the fair side so the shade pops. Medium to darker skin tones can play a little more with the spectrum of shades, with deep skin tones having the most room to play.
When it comes to the dress I’m showcasing in this post, it sits comfortably for all skin tones to enjoy. The color is rich enough for fair skin and muted enough for medium to deep skin tones. As an added bonus, the silhouette is also an all-around crowd pleaser working for pretty much all body types too.
I challenge you to try a new color you’ve never dared to wear before. You can check out this post where I break down the small ways you can subtly add color to your neutral wardrobe if you’re just like me and need a little push.
