Colour. It’s something we all know I like to try and avoid, but I’ve made it a style resolution in 2018 to try and embrace a wider palette on the spectrum, and mustard yellow. It’s a colour that has made the rounds on the Fashion Week circuit, and it’s tipped to be one of the big trends of the upcoming season, so it seemed like a good a place as any to start.

Given how short-lived my last attempt to add something mustard yellow to my wardrobe was, I can’t say I was expecting this to be a complete hit, though I’m pretty open to trying new things at least once or twice. So I packed this sweater away with me for our recent trip back to New Zealand, and perhaps what was most suprising to me was just how versatile it is. I love how it pairs with white, as it makes the colour really pop, but it also looks gorgeous with a muted heather grey, worn with denim of all sorts, or contrasting against a black skirt, and I imagine it would also pair well with blush pink if you really wanted to go all out.

Taking a little bit of inspiration from my Instgram feed, I paired the sweater with a white denim skirt and with some Gucci-inspired black leather loafers – the only thing really missing from this Scandi-themed look was a classic black leather belt at the waist. For someone who generally avoids colour, throwing the sweater on with a skirt that essentially provides a blank canvas was the way to go, and it quickly became one of the pieces in my suitcase that I reached for the most during our three-week vacation at home.

Is mustard yellow a colour you plan on adding to your wardrobe for the upcoming season? x

    It’s a good shade of yellow on you. Mustard is my favourite yellow. I am looking forward to seeing you in some more. I just bought a pastel non-mustard yellow dress, with a floral print, it entirely resembles something from the 90’s that is Hawaiian shirt inspired, so lets see how that goes for out of my comfort zone.

      I think I saw that dress on your instagram recently! You’re really good at trying new trends whereas I try and stick to the simple basics hehe. It’s fun having some colour in my wardrobe though, and I can’t wait to pair it with pink 🙂

    Yes! Embrace that colour 😆
    I’m not too sure about mustard yellow myself but I have been trying the last 6 months to add colour, especially in winter it’s too easy to just throw on all black.

      Haha I’m trying!!! I’d like to get some more colour in my wardrobe for winter, that’s for sure as like you say, it’s too easy to just wear all black 🙂 x
