I may be a fashion blogger but for my personal style, I´m not trend-obsessed. However, when I and my husband went for a little window shopping last week, I did a quick scan of the shop and from afar, quickly noticed those mustard sweaters that were hanging quietly in the corner. They grabbed my attention and I couldn´t resist their beauty. So what is it with mustard yellow that makes it adorable?

Whatever is the reason there is no denying that this color is a trend for fall and spring. Many celebrities were spotted rocking at least a piece of mustard clothing or accessory and we adore how they look. If you´re into wearing a mustard color this spring and summer, then grab a chair and let me guide through the ways on how to wear this season´s color.

Create a Mix of Earthy Hues

While mustard yellow is a perfect to pop color on a dark combo, it´s also best to work with other earthy hues. Wear a mustard coat (especially on transitional spring time) over a beige top and brown skinny jeans, and finish with a pair of gorgeous zebra print wedge boots in brown shades.

Wear Mustard as Accessories
