20 Style Tips On How To Wear Yellow Clothes This Spring And Summer

One of the biggest color trends this summer is something slightly unexpected: it’s yellow. I say unexpected because yellow isn’t a color that you typically see everyone wearing. Yellow is bright, it’s loud, it’s in-your-face – it’s a bold color, and it’s not something you wear if you’re trying to play it safe.

I also know a lot of people who say that yellow isn’t flattering on them. As someone who loves wearing black, white, and brown, I’ve always felt the same way. But then one year, I found myself buying a pretty yellow tank top to match a skirt I wanted to wear. I was honestly so worried about wearing the outfit, because it was a little out of my comfort zone, but it looked great! It ended up being one of my favorite outfits.

The point is, you CAN wear yellow even if you think you can’t. You can also wear yellow without looking like a bumblebee, because, to be fair, that is a legitimate concern. Want to know how to get in on this color trend? Here are 20 style tips on how to wear yellow clothes this summer that you probably haven’t thought of:

 

1. Keep it simple by wearing a yellow t-shirt with blue jeans. Add colorful accessories to keep the look interesting.

17. You can even do yellow on yellow if you’re feeling bold! The reason this outfit works is that she paired two different shades of yellow, and one is a light, almost sheer, color.
