Spring 2012 Trend Alert: Yellow

Hello yellow!  Bold is a common theme among spring 2012 fashion trends, and one of the biggest colors of the season is no exception.  Ranging from light lemon to mustard, and every shade in-between, adding a little dash of yellow is a great way to make your wardrobe pop!  Now, if yellow strikes you with fear, or just washes out your complexion…which is equally fearful!, try out the bright hue as an accessory.  Pumps and purses look lovely in yellow and won’t turn your skin a sour shade.  Bring on the sun! 

Here are some of my favorite yellow pieces this season:

Marc Jacobs Quilted Crossbody Bag, $575.00

I love a bright bag in a crossbody style.  It’s such a fun look and keeps you hands free when running errands or shopping.


Jason Wu for Target Textured Top, $32.99

Worn by Ann Curry on the Today show!  This great mustard piece pairs nicely with black, white, purple or even grey.


Asos Hybrid Dress, $152.19

This yellow dress from Asos shows off another major trend for spring 2012, ladylike designs. 


J.Crew Mona Pump, $198

J.Crew’s Mona pump is a staple for many of my clients.  The Mona is a very wearable height, and the yellow shade is so much fun when paired with white pants or jeans.  It also looks great with blue denim and navy.

    I was never into yellow, but I must agree that it shows off great on fashionable items! Asian fashion clothing lines rarely show pieces in yellow. But I appreciate the textured top above. It looks so pretty and unique.

    • Thanks Sheena,

      I just love how fresh and fun yellow is for this spring. A little does go a long way, though! That’s why I do agree with you that the mustard top is a great wardrobe companion. It’s a simple touch of the bright color without going all-out yellow.
