It’s back to school season and I lament how long it has been since that was for me. But for the sake of nostalgia this week’s fall fashion reporting will be brought to you in that ol’ SAT style – analogies.
Unnecessary analogy #1: Mustard is to Fall 2011 as Purple was to Fall 2009.
A perfect color for summer to fall transition because mustard can say yellow sunny happy, or turning golden leaves chill. No wonder everyone has gone mustard.
If you are like me, gaga for mustard, then the best way to wear it is as your center piece. As a dress, pair with woolly cream or toffee tights.
If you only want a little bit of mustard to show you’re in the know but not fully committed, work it into your layers. Start with one mustard item and add layers like this outfit above from Costa Blanca. Or see below for more mustard pieces.
And if you are really shy about mustard and just want a little dab, it’s a great accent color for many outfits. It’s also very easy to add with just a bag, brooch, scarf etc…
In case you wanted more accent ideas, here’s a lovely collage of more mustard things pulled from Google shopping. My favorite is the flower brooch with the sky blue base for only $10.00 on Etsy.
