But Can Everyone Really Wear Yellow? How to Wear Yellow & Look Great

Pantone has announced their colors for 2021 and one of the ones they chose is yellow & we say bring it on!  Per Wikipedia, “In almost every culture yellow represents sunshine, happiness and warmth.” But in all honesty, yellow is one color that almost all of my clients have never worn and tell me they will never ever wear, because they are absolutely certain that yellow will never look well on them. Bottom line, they’d really love to try it because it’s such a fun, bold statement, yet they really don’t want to make a not so fun, bold fashion faux pas!

Here’s my insider tip… it’s all about finding your best shade of yellow for you and here’s where I come in.

Here are some tips on choosing your absolute best yellow & for spreading the sun’s rays all around this planet.

If you have deep honey blonde, warm brown or red hair like Christina Hendricks, Jennifer Lopez and Ann Hathaway, then golden yellow is amazing.

If your hair is a soft gray like Helen Mirren, a light dusty yellow is perfection.

If you’re a warm blonde, like Elle Fanning or Anna Faris, lemon yellow is the absolute best.

If your hair is dark brown, salt & pepper, silver or black, like Tracee Ellis Ross, Jamie Lee Curtis or Courteney Cox, then a bright, true yellow is fabulous.

So find your perfect yellow and enjoy the trend this spring and summer and going right into fall.
