A spicy yet muted version of the bright yellow, mustard is a hue that flatters all complexions. We’ve been eyeing this shade for quite some time now. This earthy colour is considered as a retro shade. In addition to that, it works really well with almost any colour be it warm, cool or neutral, despite it being a warm shade. While mustard is synonymous with autumn, that doesn’t hold back the fashion folk from sporting it all year round. If you’re someone who needs a little guidance on styling the colours your wardrobe has, then you’ve come to the right place. We at WODROB, show you easy ways to achieve three looks with the gorgeous shade that mustard is.
Mustard with emerald green
Not sure how to pull off mustard? This colour works great to achieve a colour-blocking outfit. Go ahead and pair it with a royal emerald green. Put together a chic retro outfit with an emerald green top and a mustard skirt. You can also wear a mustard dress and throw on an emerald green blazer or lightweight jacket to get a bold look. Afraid to wear the mellow yellow? Then begin styling the colour in small doses (as shoes or accessories).
Mustard with eggplant
Eggplant (a dark purple) and mustard pair harmoniously with each other. A mustard sweater can be paired perfectly with an eggplant-hued skater skirt. Play with various fabrics and textures when attempting to style these two colours together. You can also incorporate mustard in your workwear. Wear a delicate mustard blouse with a white pencil skirt and finish off the look with a structured eggplant blazer. If this combo is a tad too much for you, add hints of white and black to it.
Mustard with beige
To play this colour safe, work with a subtle shade such as beige as it will let the mustard steal the show. Sport a beige shirt with khaki pants and add a pair of mustard boots to the look. Experiment a little with these two colours by adding some prints. Feeling too bold? Go ahead and wear a co-ord suit in mustard and tone it down with a beige blouse.
