“Look at the stars/ Look how they shine for you/ And everything you do/ Yeah they were all yellow…”–Coldplay, “Yellow.”

So, I have a confession to make: I’m absolutely obsessed with the color yellow! It’s the perfect shade for summer, automatically brightens up any outfit, and bonus: it looks simply smashing against most skin tones.
I thought it only fitting to look to celebs to see how to rock it proper:
Socialite Genevieve Jones accents a pretty pleated skirt and sheer black shawl with a searing sunflower top…


J. Lo looks crisp and cool in a pretty, pale, thigh-skimming sundress…

Kimora screams cute in a canary cardigan. Her adorable daughter Aoki helps her along…

And Beyonce accents a grey skirt and hoodie with scintillating citron Louboutin pumps…

Yellows work whether patterned or solid, but steer clear of pairing yellow stripes with black…

You could end up looking like a bumble bee!

  2. p.s. I realize rooms have nothing to do with fashion, but i was excited… YAY!

  3. Yellow is definately at HOT color right now. I just recently bought these Yellow mini shorts online by La Rok from bleuclothing.com. They have really subtle pockets and come with a white belt. They have this medium rise, so it’s not like everything is exposed. Great posting… yellow is where it’s at.
