I have a pencil skirt in primrose yellow that was inspired by Lucia Musau. Since I saw her terrific skirt, I knew that I also had to get one.


Summer is the season of yellow and to my advantage, we are having a sunny season hence very compatible with my style. Primrose 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 primrose yellow with white: 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 coordination. 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?

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!


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.

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.

  14. When I first read the title I made the mistake of thinking it said “color rush” and the first thing that popped into my head was the boldly colored uniforms worn by NFL teams for Thursday night football games the past couple of years. That clearly wasn’t the case, but I really liked that yellow. I suggested it to a couple of family members.
