  • Believe it or not, mustard is a versatile neutral shade that contrasts beautifully with many other colours in your wardrobe such as navy, burgundy, white, denim, black and other warm jewel tones.

  • Mustard is one of those rare colours that compliment all skin tones. It will be especially loved by those who normally don’t suit muted pastel colours to offer more depth and contrast against the skin.

  • Yellow is often a colour used to draw in attention and therefore you’re bound to strike an impressive reaction when you walk into the room! As well as this, the colour is very unique so it’s great for those looking for some extra oomph in their wardrobe.

  • The mustard colour trend has been in fashion for years and never goes out of style!

Some may look at wearing a statement mustard coloured dress as high risk, but we think it’s actually high reward! A bright statement colour promises to draw in the eye and can be a great conversational starter when wanting to make a good first impression. Consider mustard for a first date or special occasion you have been looking forward to for a long time. If you opt for a solid coloured dress, you can always balance the look by pairing with neutral coloured shoes and accessories.

If a strong fashion statement is not quite your cup of tea, or you’d like something a little bit more toned down for everyday or workwear, then you can also choose to incorporate the trend through the use of accessories such as a tailored belt or ballet flat. This is a great way to elevate your outfit if you feel it is looking a bit plain and needs to be brought to life!

For a neutral everyday look with just a hint of pizazz, look no further. Layering a mustard cardigan over a casual tee and shorts makes for an effortless weekend outfit, or a mustard blouse over a navy pencil skirt will make a chic office look. We also love the look of pairing mustard with a classic black and white stripe for an instant fashion forward look.
