Fall for Yellow


As you know yellow is one of the most popular colors in fashion for fall. I think a yellow coat is so crisp and fresh. A pop of color is enough to brighten up even the chilliest day. Sometimes I'll fall into a routine of wearing black pretty regularly. I feel like I'm secretly a New Yorker living in D.C. I look in the mirror and even my handbag is black! That's when you know it's time to add a colorful detail. While black looks cool and classic on its own adding a splash of color can do wonders for your ensemble. It can make something old look new again. Pairing yellow with black or navy brings a little personality to your wardrobe. If you're feeling adventurous throw on a yellow coat with purple tights. If you like bright colors but they make you a little nervous wear mainly dark hues but add a mustard suede belt. It's a simple but stylish way to revitalize your look. A key idea to remember is not to underestimate the chicness of color in one's wardrobe. 





I love the idea of pairing a yellow shoe with navy, grey, black, or purple. Yellow isn't typically a color you see too often in footwear so these darling shoes are quite the pleasant surprise.

I'm so happy yellow is the color this year - I wear it every year, regardless of popularity! I don't wear as much black in the winter... the all around darkness gets me down, so I choose soft grays and really REALLY dark chocolate browns as neutrals, and then pair with a yellow, emerald, or apricot with gold accessories. My other favorite trick is lining dark coats with amazing pops of color. I re-lined a classic J.Crew knee length black coat in emerald green silk and it's such a happy surprise!

Love the opera coat with the two buttons. It's always black, black, black, or purple for me. So hard to find anything in the closet when everything's black!

OMG! Crazy about all of it! Too bad I have no use for one of those fab coats :( But the flats, now that's something I could work with...

Sanity Fair- Your fall colors sound perfect. And I like beautiful lining in coats and handbags very much.

A Thousand Clapping Hands- I know how you feel about black taking over the closet. The opera coat is a dream.

Style Redux said...

Kitty- I love ruffles and the shoe is very lady-like and proper.

Style Redux said...

CC- Thanks so much. The jackets are such lovely pieces.

Style Redux said...

Noemie K- Haha, great minds think alike. Thanks!

Style Redux said...

MyLittleHappyPlace- A yellow flat would be so chic with jeans but equally adorable with a pretty dress.

That Lasata jacket NEEDS to make its way into my closet when the weather turns chilly. It's fantastic!

Love yellow! Very happy color. Looks terrible on my, so I'm sticking with a yellow bag for now.

Style Redux said...

Southern Aspirations- Same here. I can do a yellow headband, tights, bag, or shoes. I'm a fair blonde so I have to stick to yellow accessories.
