Yellow often gets a bad rap and mustard yellow is the most maligned of the yellows. Everyone yells that they can’t wear it, that they feel like a hot dog, that it’s doing horrible things to their complexion and that it’s the worst. Well, I’m here to tell you that I disagree. I love yellow and I’m particularly fond of mustard yellow.
I think it’s lovely. It’s both bright and warm, it’s cheery and it plays well with other colors. Such as the colors in this skirt:
There is no mustard in the pattern on this skirt. There is olive and blue and gray and bits of citron and red, but there is no mustard. And yet, my mustard cardigan stepped up to the challenge of having nothing to match in this skirt and decided to instead “go” with this skirt. And I think it did so brilliantly:
Great job, Dear Mustard Cardigan. I love you and will wear you with everything, even if no one else will.
What about you, Reader Friends? Are you pro- or anti-mustard?
