I know there are many people out there who don’t really care for the hue, but I really have to say that one of my most favorite colors has to be that sunny, bonny shade that we call- yellow.
Even though I love all of the colors of the rainbow (when used properly ;), I still love yellow for it’s sunny, cheery-ness and the way it can brighten up, or flow with muted hues.
Here are a few examples…
Here is an example of yellow brightening up an outfit-
The red adds a bunch too, but really, the toned down shades of the blouse are contrasted by the bonny brightness of the yellow (oh, and did I mention that this is one of my most favorite color combinations? yellow + grey? Well yes, it is 🙂
The ensemble below also portrays the use of a more green/yellow, although to my eye I find it to be more muted than the version above.
This one is an example of the same shade working together to come up with a fabulous outfit, the colorful dots on the blouse adding some interest from the predominate flow of yellow.
The same concept goes with the ensemble below, only instead of colors breaking up the constant flow of yellow- the designer(s) chose to use different shade of one primary color to give more enthusiasm to the outfit.
Now take a look at this one-
Overall, the outfit is built up of very natural colors- cream, black, gold- Wait, what? Isn’t gold a shade of yellow? I thought yellow was supposed to brighten an outfit- not be a subtle go-with-the-flow color!
Yes- yellow has the ability of both, it just has to do with the shade of the color. The shade which I featured in the first one is very bright, and closer to the white in the color wheel, while the shade just above is closer to the outer ring of the wheel, therefore making it a more dark, natural hue.
Here are some colors which are complementary shades to various hues of yellow (180˚ on the color wheel), to assist you in your outfit building, home decor, etc. –
So over all, like all colors in God’s world, yellow is a very practical, charming color. If it be one of those which complement your skin and hair, then I encourage you to try it out in your wardrobe and see what happens! Who knows, it might just become your most favorite color of the rainbow- if it already isn’t 😉
