#OOTD – Primrose Yellow Skirt + Neutral Accessories

2nd August

Primrose yellow skirt with neutral accessories

What’s your favorite trend this summer? One of mine is definitely primrose yellow, on the PANTONE LIST of this spring/summer’s hottest colors.

Yellow in Seattle

I love this color so much that when I was on my recent European vacation, I bought a skirt and dress in this hue! Have you noticed how certain colors look especially good in certain places – like pastels in the American southwest?

Well, primrose yellow looks stunning in parts of Spain and northern Italy! But even in Seattle, we actually have sunshine this summer. And so, it works!

For the longest time, I avoided yellow, because of my light features. Well, you can see I’ve changed my mind on that one.

I’m currently making up for lost opportunities to wear yellow! Of course, this lemony shade doesn’t provide the color contrast I normally prefer next to my face. A white tee, however, acts as a fabulous buffer. Black and charcoal are great alternatives.

Neutral-colored accessories

For this extra sunshiny apparel, I chose a neutral handbag and sandals. I got this handmade bag as a gift from a friend who lives in the Philippines. I love how light and summery it is! And I also like that it seems like a dressier version of the straw/basket bag trend I’ve admired all summer.

As for my footwear, I often pair low to mid-heeled shoes with a shorter skirt for a versatile, daytime-appropriate look. This time, however, I chose thicker-heeled sandals. Although this skirt isn’t super short, I think that the thicker heel (rather than a stiletto) makes it more playful than sexy.

I am loving yellow so much that while in Spain, I also picked up a skirt in yellow curry. It’s on Pantone’s list of hot colors for this fall. Yellow curry is just as the name sounds, by the way: a bit darker and muckier.

There’s only one little problem. Yellow curry is on the UK’s list of colors. Yes, Pantone just segregated their colors into colors for New York versus London Fashion Week! But don’t despair if you are also in the U.S. and loving yellow. The New York list includes golden lime! (See it HERE.) As for me, I’ll just know that I’m on point…for London! 😉
