How to Wear Yellow with Confidence

I only recently acquired a bright yellow top. Actually I bought two! I’ve never been afraid of wearing yellow but had never found one that I loved. The thing about yellow is that on its own it’s a very eye catching. It’s not a color you can just blend in while wearing. Yellow is also a little trickier to match with other colors; so you would think. In fact, it’s a great color that can go day to night and can be worn with so many fantastic colors and patterns. There are also so many shades of yellow, you are bound to find one that suits you!

Some of my favorite combos with yellow:

  • Yellow and White- this is a simple color combo you will love.

  • Yellow and Grey – black can be very harsh with yellow, so grey is a perfect substitute. Plus you don't rink looking like a bumble bee.

  • Yellow and Navy and white striped – this is a great way to make yellow timeless and ageless.

  • Yellow and Purple – This is so fun and playful! You have to be ready to make an appearance in this color combo!

For this outfit I wanted to showcase the top. I love the vibrancy of the yellow and most of all the cut! I love a high-low top. I found this top at Carina, a store that specializes in 100% Egyptian cotton apparel. By keeping the outfit simple with jeans and a solid hijab, I wanted to maintain that this uniquely styled top would be the main piece.

To make the outfit pop I decided to add a bold statement necklace. I am in love with this necklace. I got it in Egypt also. I love how it has such an Egyptian Bedouin feel to it. Also, I found these cute sandals at Ardenes. I love the simple chain details on them.

Are there colors you stay clear of? Would you wear yellow? How would you style a yellow top like this?
