Not quite yellow and not quite lime, but somewhere in-between, it’s what J Crew calls “citron” (which also happens to be French for “lemon”). I like the colour best when it’s worn with ink blue, white or a rich tomato red. It is also lovely when matched with emerald green, light turquoise, cobalt blue and animal prints. Adding a neutral shade to your outfit (ink blue, slate grey, white, cream or blue denim) is the key to keeping this colour crisp and wearable.
I adore this mouth watering new neon and over the last week have added it to my wardrobe in the form of a camisole, a piece of knitwear, a pendant and a fine knit scarf. The sun is out in Seattle and the sour hue has lifted my Wintery ensembles to a cheerful Spring high.
If you feel that it’s too bright for clothing, add citron to your look through footwear or an accessory.
