Best shades of yellow

Blonde Hair and Yellow Clothes:

Lots of blondes consider yellow a tricky color when it comes to their wardrobes and in most cases don’t wear it. They think that because they have “yellow” hair they can’t wear “yellow” clothes.

Well, I have news for you… If you are a blonde, you can wear yellow and you can do it beautifully!

Here is an easy tip to remember! “Try to match you hair color to your clothes.”

For example, if you are a cool blonde (platinum, beige or ash) look for yellow clothes that are cool too (pale yellow, pastel yellow, poppy yellow).

If you are a warm blonde (honey, gold or champagne) look for yellow clothes that are warm too (golden yellow, mustard).

Look at Reese Witherspoon on the Red Carpet of the Golden Globes. Stunning! She is a cool blonde and she is wearing a cool pale yellow Atelier Versace gown…beautiful!

Red Hair and Yellow Clothes:

If you are a redhead who wants to know if you can wear yellow, YES you can!

Yellow can actually complement your beautiful red locks.

My advice… go with a mustard tone and break up the yellow. Wear an accessory or lipstick color that will add interest to the outfit.

Look at the gorgeous Emma Stone rocking a yellow gown with a bold red lip and check out Amy Adams wearing a yellow strapless dress with gold accents. Stunning!
