Fall's hot hue: rich mustard yellow

We’re accustomed to seeing sunny yellow hues splashed across the pages of spring fashion magazines but for fall? Absolutely! Unlike the lemon yellows of spring and summer, fall 2011’s yellows are spicy, rich and warm. They also look phenomenal on nearly every skin tone unlike their pastel counterparts. Try pairing fall’s mustard yellow tones with everything from wild leopard prints to blue (navy all the way to cobalt) to grey and silver (a shockingly rich combination). And if you’re inspired but unsure where to start, try one of the easy-to-wear styles featured below. You may find your new favorite fall look.
