This fashion is good enough to eat!
Mustard – no, we aren’t talking about the kind you drizzle over your hot dog. We’re talking about the latest hue to hit the runways and to include in your wardrobe this fall.

Mustard is the it color for this fall season. I tend to cringe at this yellowish hue (as it tends to look icky with my complexion), but if you have the right complexion and you’re donning the right outfit, you can pull of this very trendy color! Here are some outfit staples and hot-item accessories, colored mustard, that can complement any twenty-something fashionista!

Mustard might seem like a difficult color to wear, but there are many different shades of mustard, from honey to Dijon, you just need to choose one that suits you best. The key to success in tackling this color trend is coordinating it with other colors. I wouldn’t suggest wearing a full-on mustard ensemble. After all, you don’t want to look like a French’s bottle! The key to pulling off mustard is pairing it with darker, more neutral colors.

Try matching your mustard pieces to other trendy fall colors like jade green, plum or earth tones like brown, beige, and black. It’s also good to keep in mind the ’70s-inspired theme. Catwalk designers have gone crazy for the hip ’70s styles including names like Fendi, Hermes and Isaac Mizrahi. Channel your inner hippie by matching mustard with fringed saddle handbags, high-waisted pants, vests and leather booties. You’ll be mastering mustard in no time!
