Combo Crush: What Works with Yellow

Sure, the new yellow styles seem easy and breezy, but—when it comes down to styling them—they can prove a little tricky. So, we removed the guesswork completely by compiling a guide to wearing them right. Hint: It’s all about the color pairing!


1.  Yellow and Blue
Get set to go back to basics, because—this season—two primary colors work wonders: It’s all about the combo of any blue (We like Pantone’s Dazzling Blue!) and bright yellow, and—as they’re complementary colors—it’s hard to mess it up. Try it in stripes or a great, punchy floral, and keep your look in check by accessorizing with neutrals.

2.  Yellow and Gray
Not yet ready to brave color-on-color? Then play it safe with just one showstopper. Think yellow denim, a yellow blazer or dress—paired with any neutral you wish. We recommend Pantone’s Paloma, a cool gray shade that pops color like no other.

3.  Yellow and White
Yellow and white is a classic combination that screams spring, and we can’t get enough. For a no-fail take, match a pair of white denim (Skinnies are your best bet!) with anyyellow top in your rotation—like a tank for day or a blouse for night.
