The official start of summer has kicked off this past weekend and with it comes long days and plenty of sunshine. People are walking around showing a little more skin and the drab colors of winter are replaced with warmer and brighter ones. Among the popular colors I’ve been noticing both men and women sporting (at least on the streets of New York City) is the color yellow.
Dresses, shirts, pants, and even shoes are brightening everyone’s summer style wardrobe. From shades that inspire the gentle rays of the sun to a bright lemon yellow, there’s something really attractive about the color. I believe the brighter the color you wear, the better it affects your overall mood for the day.
Yellow is a happy, feel good color. Whenever I see someone on the train or streets wear the color yellow, it makes me think of the sun or sunflowers. I feel like my mood is somehow lifted and I can’t help but smile a little when I see the color. Because there are varying shades of yellow you can try on for size, there’s bound to be one to suit your own personal style.
I personally love a softer shade of yellow. Wearing a yellow blouse with a skirt kind of gives me an extra bounce in my step, while keeping me cool on those hot summer days. Time to let those dull blacks and grays rest until the next winter season. It’s yellow’s turn to shine this summer––pun intended. It’s also great to see men embrace the color with the shirts they wear. Yellow seems to be one of those colors that doesn’t manage to look too girly or feminine if most men aren’t comfortable making an often associated girly color, like pink, work into their regular style. It’s a color both genders can wear very well.
Whether you’re barbecuing in your backyard or sipping a drink at a rooftop bar, make a statement with yellow. We can all use a little sunshine in our summer fashion choices this season.
