This yellow dress is an easy t-shirt shape, very comfortable and perfect for a warm day.

Yellow looks great with a tan (which I certainly don’t have) but, if you are not tanned, don’t worry.
I am a firm believer in rocking the skin you are in.
I am pale.
Fake tan looks ridiculous on me.
I gave up trying to tan years ago.
I just use a slightly tinted moisturiser to take the blue tinge out of my legs.

Pale or dark…love your skin!

I like yellow so, I am going to wear it, regardless.

Today, I decided to keep the palette of this look (mostly) neutral.
Adding a nude/blush leather jacket.
This could be enough for a nice minimal look but, the paler hues tend to wash me out a little so I needed some pops of colour to brighten things up a bit.

A red clutch, and a matching lip, were the perfect pep-me-up.
Adding little touches of blue (in my earrings, scarf and toes) provided more interest.

My new platform sandals finished things off nicely.

Here are some great yellow-based colour combinations to try…

1.  Pale, straw yellow (warm) + white + soft pinks + soft blue/grey and a pop of darker blue.

2.  Pastel yellow + soft pistachio green + sky blue and a hint of sage.

3.  Bright lemon + muted red + grey green + soft cream and the dark contrast of charcoal grey.

5.  This is my favourite combination!
Acid yellow + Deep plum/purple + olive green + grey green with a pop of turquoise and a hit of red too!

6.  Mustard yellow + coral + turquoise + soft teal + cream with white adding the pop of (non) colour.

7.  Warm yellow + deep prussian blue + steel blue with pops of white and burgundy.

I found these fantastic palettes on a home decor site, after searching for a while.
These are the colours I wanted to show you, but intended for interiors.
Great combinations work, whatever the situation.

{Think about using scarves, nail polish, shoes, belts, bags, lipstick, earrings and other accessories to add the pops of colour}
