bright to be

Wedding season, ahem year, continues for me. I recently attended a bridal shower that was all about vibrant color. A breathtaking venue with turquoise and tangerine decor (think garden tea party), desserts to absolutely die for, my favorite girlfriends, and of course... a show stopping bride to be!

Dressed in a bright canary yellow with a perfectly complimented crimson lip (including a true red mani/pedi), understated classic jewelry, and subtle-yet-sexy snakeskin stilletos. Just divine.

I've always thought yellow to be a tricky color to wear. So I gathered a few quick tips on being miss sunshine, fashionably:

simple silhouette-  A solid bold color (especially a strong yellow) is a statement in itself so keep it streamlined and simple.

flatter your skin tone- A quick rule of thumb: olive and darker complexions look better with bold yellows and lemon yellows while pale complexions are complimented by mustard and dark yellows. That neon greenish yellow? Nobody looks good in it... please pass on that.

accessorize minimally- I personally love gold jewelry with yellow. Not overdone however; if you choose to do chunky gold, lay low on wearing bold shoes or other accessories.

How do you wear yellow?
