InstaStyle: Yellow for the Fair-Featured


Today I am wearing a Canary Yellow Dress from the 1950’s.  I wasn’t always keen on wearing yellow; being a person with fair skin-tone, I grew up avoiding the “washed-out” look I got when I wore certain yellows.  Now, I understand yellow and how it CAN work for my skin-tone.  Here are a couple of tips:

1)  The stronger the tone of the yellow, the better.  Super pastel or pale will tend to wash out next to your skin.  Check out this rich mustard yellow I am wearing in THIS RECENT POST).

2)  If you do opt for a lighter yellow (like the canary yellow hue I am wearing today) look for designs that have a trim in an alternate color.  The white lace of this vintage dress keep the light yellow hue from being directly against my fair skin.

3)  Wear yellow accessories!  You can see how I have been maximizing yellow in my accessories (and even my finger nails!) in THIS POST :)

Also, if you love this dress you can BUY IT HERE on :) Happy shopping!





Accessories include vintage necklaces and hat and an Armani Exchange belt.



The shoes are  by Valentino.  I wear these more than any other pair of my shoes; the femininity of the bow detail is given just the right amount of edge with the tiny silver studs.

    1. Thank you Llana! Why not?! I always thought I couldn’t wear it either… I think everyone has at least one hue that works. You should experiment, you might be wearing yellow all the time like me! :)
