Mustard Yellow | Spring 2018’s “It” Color

Posted on Location: 1 m read

The mustard color trend has been popping up all over the place — and it’s not about to go away! Fashion trends indicate that the versatile shade is going to be a hit this Spring! In fact, it’s already made its way onto the runways of popular designers such as Moschino and Isabel Marant. Of course, fashion icons have also been rocking this color off the runway as well.

On a recent shopping trip, I found a plethora of cute mustard yellow tops, including sweaters, tees, cardigans, and crop tops. I never thought I’d be one to wear this color because I always felt it wouldn’t mesh well with my skin tone. Boy, was I wrong! I’ve learned that at first, it might take a while to get comfortable, and creative enough to come up styling options with mustard pieces. With the right accessories I can totally see why everyone loves mustard (on and off their hot dogs lol) so much!

In case you’re curious, below are some of my favorite mustard styles at the moment. πŸ™‚ Happy shopping!

Are you into the mustard color trend?

    Mustard is such an awesome colour for tanned girls like you and me! I don’t know why so many girls shy away from it but they look awesome on anyone when you pair it back with white or dark denim washes!!

    The photography in this post is just gorgeous, as is your articulate way of describing your style choices! It can be unnerving to try out a new color, but trust me girl, these pieces look great on you! I don’t own anything in this color but now I’m thinking I should try it out. Thanks for the post!

    Mustard yellow is a great color to own! I don’t have a sweater but I do have a pair of wide-leg track pants that work with lots of outfits. And I can’t wait to wear shorts again, spring and summer cannot come quickly enough!!

    I personally don’t like wearing mustard yellow (I just feel like it’s not flattering on me), but I LOVE how it looks on others!! Such a great color!

    • Sharon Wu
      January 29, 2018

      Aw thanks babe! I totally understand! I thought that way too before; honestly I think mustard only looks good on me when I’m tan haha

      Thank you Denise! I think I’ll definitely be wearing this color more into Spring. The weather was perfect this weekend but sadly I was working more than I was able to go out and enjoy it like I had hoped to. Good news is it’s going to be in the 80’s all week this week — so if I finish my projects in a couple days I’ll be able to go out and tan by the pool or something πŸ™‚ Hope you have a lovely week!
