Spice Up Your Transitional Closet With A Dash Of Mustard Yellow

The ultimate '70s shade.

share with your friends
So many stand-out colors competed for the spotlight this summer, but in the end yellow came out on top. Stop sign red and burnt orange certainly make a statement, but they can be difficult to layer into a more refined outfit – and while we love pink in all its incarnations there’s just nothing like a sunburst shade of yellow to liven up your look. 

Selena Gomez made a serious case for the color with the release of the music video for Fetish, which was filled with juicy citrus dresses, and we loved the neon inflections of Vetements’ latest collection, but as summer turns to fall, there’s no better shade of yellow than mustard. 

Not only is it in-keeping with what we’re sure will continue to be the fashion set’s favorite palette, but this particular murky mix of yellow and brown is totally ‘70s-tinged. Pull on any mustard blouse and you’ll blend right in on a Gucci runway. The inbetween-y tone is perfect for pairing with the rich chocolatey browns, forest greens and burgundy reds that tend to make an appearance around fall – making mustard the perfect transitional color to add to your closet. 

Liven it up with gold jewelry and pop-tastic color accents to keep your condiment-colored clothing fresh for summer, and as September begins to roll by start lacing in deeper shades for a moodier look.
