The sun’s not yellow/ it’s chicken – Bob Dylan

Very few people can pull off bright shades head-to-toe. Add a yellow accessory or clothing item as your bravery level allows. Start with small doses and you’ll be surprised at how much it brightens your mood. Shoes and boots in bright canary shades will make you feel like singing in the rain.

Pair Yellow with Pinks, Purples, and Blues

Got a denim fix like we do? Softer shades of daffodil and lemon in florals work perfectly with denim and chambray. You can keep covered up and still be uber feminine. Even if you’re wearing a sweater or jacket layer, it’s always nice to see a little pop of color poking out.

Prints + Patterns

Mixing prints is still hot for 2017. For the non-wallflower type, mix prints and add yellow! You’ll be sure to stand out in a crowd. This is also very helpful when you’re with large groups of people and you get lost. You think I’m being sarcastic, but I’m speaking from personal experience.

Easiest Accessory

If my purses aren’t black, then they are bright colors! A yellow saddle bag or bucket bag are just right for the new year. Go for bright shades of honey or butterscotch if you wear a lot of black. Mustard yellow looks gorgeous with maroon and wine colors. Pick the shade based on what you wear more of throughout the year.

Have FUN

Most of all have fun! The best thing about yellow is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Part of brightening your day is lightening up yourself! My friend has a mantra that goes something like this: “Roll with it”. Best advice I ever had.
