Pink and yellow might not be everyone’s go-to colour combination, but strike the perfect balance and you’ll find yourself liking it more than you’d expect. Both Fall/Winter & Spring/Summer 2017 runway collections had many looks integrating both colors that it was really hard to ignore! The pink and yellow trend is actually fun to play around with, but for someone who wants to try it out, or go all out, I’ve provided a few tips for you on the blog and am sharing some affordable pink and yellow pieces that are worth trying.
Below are my Top Tips on Wearing the Pink and Yellow Trend
Bright Yellow VS Mellow Yellow
If you have a yellow or olive skin tone, stick to a brighter yellow. I generally stay away from mustard and olive tones because I find it can make me look a little green.
Pink or Yellow Accessories
If you think yellow might be a little too bold for you, don’t worry! Incorporating yellow in earrings, or jeweled embellishments, like on a bag or shoes can be a great option for you.
Incorporating Metallics, White, Black or Prints
Finding colorblocking pieces, or printed pieces that incorporate less amounts of colors you’re not used to wearing is a great way of introducing it into your wardrobe. A good way to not use as much color is to wear white or metallic. A white tee and yellow skirt with pink shoes and silver bag is one example. Or a Pink tee, white skirt, yellow shoes and pink earrings are another. A white dress paired with a yellow bag and pink shoes might even become your summer go-to look! Your options are endless here!
All or Nothing
I talked about incorporating yellow into a print, but you can also wear an all yellow or pink piece, as I have, and wear the other color in your accessories.
Working with What You Have
I have a lot of pink and white in my closet, but a lot less yellow and can understand if a color feels like it’s missing from your closet. If it’s not too hot where you are, layering is a great way to get two colors on one part of your body. A longer lace yellow cami peeking out from the bottom of a pink tee or dress shirt can look really chic! Even a white top from your closet will go great with a lovely pink or yellow skirt, too!
