Yellow is bright and has great impact but, it is an irritant known to make babies cry. The key is tuning-in w/o turning it up. The second pictures illustrates this well. The pants are bright and non-radioactive ; )
I love the polka dot skirt and the purple socks ! An electric-starry mix of patterns and colours. Had no idea mustard pants could look so chique.. then again it depends what you pair 'em with. love the juxtaposing colors- black and yellow.
My Mother's favorite color! She past away long time ago but always remember her yellow dress, amazing and she was, at that time, the only one to wear a dress like that. Thank you for this photos!…now i need something yellow in my wardrobe to remember you and this wonderful post! Kisses, love your work!
sorry to be a party pooper, especially since it is so lovely to see yellow on such a gray and dismal chicago day, but, not EVERYTHING goes together. It really takes a skilled hand to work pattern togethers, but perhaps even more importantly, the textures have to work. For me, neither outfit is working, but I can sympathize. It is APRIL and today I am sick to death of my grey wool skirt and tights (but it's still COLD and DAMP and did I mention GREY?) and am often in a quandary as to what to wear this time of year…both of these outfits have the seasons colliding into a bit of a mess…I do like that yellow, though…
I wouldn't incorporate this yellow in my wardrobe as the photos show, however I do appreciate the color after a long hard winter. I just bought a purse in a like yellow color for that very same reason!
I love yellow, but neither of these outfits works for me. I could not think of a worse day to match a yellow jacket and a baggy skirt. Strangely, every part of the outfit is OK per se, but together they just do not produce the right result. There are much more joyous ways to wear yellow and make it stand out- stylishly.
love the yellow flares..one gotto have kickass attitude to wear those..in my country(india)..one actor called Govinda is very famous for wearing it in his movies…yellow pants and pink shirt..its become his trademark style!!!
trend alert: layering,pattern clashes and sweeping maxi skirts or billowing trousers. some looks translate better in other cities than they might in manhattan. i couldn't picture street sweeping maxis in nyc..not during the day at least…yet they work beautifully in eurpoean cities.
I consider myself to have a fairly open mind when it comes to mixing up disparate things, but I hate that first outfit. Came to those sneakers and thought, well that about does it for me…just plain ugly.
i love trying to imagine what the woman in the polka-dot skirt and yellow quilted blazer looks like. the converse and sock suggest a young, off-beat girl but in milan it truly could be someone of any age. love this photo, thanks for leaving something to the imagination!
I love the idea of the pattern mixing in the first picture, and the tint of the pants in the second. However, neither of these looks are flattering and they both look very unkempt in not a good way… very messy. If one clothing item is over-sized it only makes sense that the rest of the outfit should be fitted or tailored, otherwise you look like you're wearing clothes that don't fit you. Also, the length of the hem on that skirt is just crying for heels or really nice flats, not converse. Sorry to be such a negative nelly but felt it had to be pointed out ;)
I consider myself quite open minded when it comes to fashion I have nothing that is yellow in my closet, with exception of a yellow pashmina; for a touch of sunshine :) I like the quirkiness of the first outfit and thought the 2nd was rather clumsy (too baggy perhaps), I do appreciate the effort on texture.
