Call it primrose yellow!
HOW TO SPOT PRIMROSE YELLOW
Primrose yellow looks like a light to moderate yellow, sometimes with a greenish tinge. It can be so easy to spot it, especially due to its sparkle!
PRIMROSE YELLOW COMES BEST IN?
If there is a color that has also been accepted across all genders and for all designs of outfits, then it is primrose yellow. Right from the men’s shirts, pocket squares and blazers to every item in the women’s wardrobe, the color is there; from dresses, to skirts, to suits, to tops, to hats and much more. In short, you’ll need to invest in this happy color.
HOW TO WEAR PRIMROSE YELLOW
Summer is the season of yellow and to my advantage, we are having a sunny season hence very compatible with my style. Mellow yellow is the perfect shade for all skin tones, with bright sunny yellows so good for light-skinned while darker mustard hues so good for the dark-skinned.
First and always, neutrals will remain to be the best pair for any bright color like primrose yellow. If you don’t want to do black, then wear white with your primrose yellow. Like Lucia Musau does.
If you opt for bold, then be very choosy with color. Keep your pair of an earthy tone like camels or some shades of orange; as well, the greens will do as long as you pick one of perfect co-ordination. And most importantly, only wear two basic bold colors that too much of them. I wore it with a neon-green top sometime back and I’m certain the look was gorgeous, right?
Anyway, I bet that I’ve worn it even better today!
Primrose yellow is also loved for how it can liven up really hard and edgy colors like cobalt blue, navy blue so you might also be thinking about doing the combination.
As well, you can pick a finely tailored suit in primrose yellow and be sure to turn heads!
ACCESSORIZING THE COLOR
Many originally wore it as an accent to liven up dull outfits. I mean, wearing yellow for your hats, accessories , bags and shoes but it is so nice to see people embracing the color as a stand-out in their whole look.Thus, accessorizing it then becomes an issue.
Rev up your yellow by accessorizing it with fun shades of reds, metallic and neutrals; at least, such is a combo everyone can comfortably wear.
I chose a combo of red and golden which looks just fine, right lovelies?
HOW I WORE MY PRIMROSE YELLOW
I got the perfect pencil skirt that has got the brightest shade of primrose yellow. So bright and bold! If there’s someone who is so in love with bright colors, then consider me as the number one. No matter the season, I can wear any type of color to my comfort.
I paired my primrose yellow pencil skirt with a green halter top. I mean…don’t the two colors blend so well? I also went for a cute small polka dot blazer to layer over the top. Polka dots have killed it in the Milan Fashion week and it’s awesome to embrace the trend, don’t you think so?
For perfect contrast, I went for a deep blue polka dot blazer. If polka dots look too feminine for you a polka dot blouse is a fun alternative for adding instant elegance and personality to your outfit. Add colorful accessories like a vibrant clutch for a flash of fun.
HOW I WORE MY MAKEUP
Red is always, and will always be the best choice of lipstick whenever you don’t know what sort of lipstick you’d want to wear. And since I’m not one to wear blue or yellow make-up( haha) , I just went for red lips. At least, that’s what made a pop in my makeup since I’m always for the no-makeup makeup look.
