Yellow has made its way back into the spotlight, and it’s got our attention. This trend isn’t the easiest to wear – there’s a reason why warning signs sport the hue – but it’s not impossible either. Some things to avoid are pairing it with other bright colors like orange, too much of a good thing is never good, and black, unless you’re dressing as a bumblebee for Halloween. As for the do’s of yellow, do pair it with navy or white to let the color pop, and style your outfit around the yellow piece. As the weather continues to warm, this is the perfect time to add new spring and summer items to your closet, so we’ve picked three must-have yellows for you.
