More Mustard, Please

Monday, December 13th, 2010

Every now and then I become entranced by a color and I start seeing it everywhere. Lately my obsession appears in the form of a golden ray of sunlight that transcends the darkness of these long winter days. It can be none other than…drumroll please…delicious and wholesome mustard yellow! Voila! Don’t you just feel a little warmer thinking about it? I do…

What I love about this color is that it’s so versatile and charismatic, especially with this year’s fall and winter collections. It can debut as a modest accessory that brightens up an otherwise dreary palate. It can melt away the animosity between oft-warring colors like black and brown. Or it can take the spotlight by storm in the form of an unabashedly cheerful overcoat or wiggle dress. It can look infinitely classy or infinitely cheesy, you choose. And as anyone with an eye on this last century’s fashion tides can see, each decade has had its own interpretation of this magical color. What’s yours?
