Yellow—The Color Of Spring and Summer

May 17, 2019


Add yellow to your spring and summer wardrobes

Light and sunny, yellow is a pleasant color that can brighten a rainy spring day, and radiate energy and excitement when it’s hot in the summer. In many asian countries as well as China, yellow is seen a the color of happiness, wisdom, and harmony. The most highly visible of all colors, yellow is often used for pedestrian crossings. Don’t believe me, on the the next rainy or cloudy day, compare white and yellow crossings, and you’ll see how much easier it is to see the yellow ones.

Safety, happiness, enlightenment, optimism, with all of the positive meanings behind this luminous color, consider adding a little yellow to your spring and summer wardrobes this season.

Here’re 3 ways to add a little yellow to both your spring and summer wardrobes.

Crossbody bags are a quintessential spring and summer accessory for me. Warm days beg for spending lots of time outdoors and participating in fun activities. From visiting parks and gardens for the blooming flowers of spring, to street fairs, ice cream runs, and walking along the boardwalk during the summer, one thing I always want, is for my hands to be free. A crossbody bag keeps my essential items close, but let’s me move easily without weighing down my shoulders.

A yellow crossbody bag pairs extremely well with the lighter colors of spring and summer, especially white/light colored tops and light washed demin.

Yellow Trousers and Jeans

Yellow trousers is perfect to inject a bit of fun in a business casual environment, while yellow capris are ideal for a more casual lifestyle, and a bit of leg coverage. Yellow bottoms can be paired with a wide variety of colors, my favorites are: white, light blue, and purple for a lovely look. Or you can go bolder, by pairing yellow with orange, red, or green.

Yellow Scarf

Graduations, weddings, baby showers, vacations, the spring and summer months are when the travel season is busiest, which means there’s a high possibility you’ll run into cold temperatures at some point (air conditioning, rain showers, etc). A yellow scarf that’s large enough can serve as either a scarf or a wrap, keeping you warm when the temperatures drop. Unlike a jacket, sweater, or cardigan, which can get rather bulky and cumbersome to carry, scarves fold up small, which makes transporting them super easy, just stuff one into your tote or suitcase and go.
