This post is for Team Mustard. It’s been ages since we saw earth tones make a trendy statement, so I’m all for seeing them bask in their glory on those who enjoy wearing the shades. On to some fun mustard looks.
1. Mustard, Cinnamon, Oats and Cream
This outfit combines four earth tones in trendy silhouettes, and the result is smashing. Pair a cream top and cinnamon pants. These wide legs are at the fashionable shorter full length with flats. Feel free to throw in a cinnamon skirt instead. Add oatmeal flats and a mustard topper. The drama of the maxi topper is elegant, and swooshes with the flare of the bottoms. Add a cinnamon, tan, cream or mustard bag and you’re done.
2. Column of Mustard
It’s hard to pull together this look unless you have the exact pieces. But for those who adore mustard, try combining a mustard patterned dress with a mustard topper. Throw in cream, tan or cognac footwear and bag. Nude-for-you hosiery is best for a little more insulation. Try a sheath dress and blazer if that’s more your thing.
3. Mustard Top, Blue Jeans and Snake
Combine a mustard top with blue jeans, and finish things off with snakeskin footwear and bag. The top needn’t be lace, and you can choose any animal pattern as an accent. The bag and shoes needn’t be the same animal print either. Or if that’s too much, throw in a solid bag and pair of shoes. Brown, navy, cream, tan, red or cinnamon come to mind.
4. Mustard, White and Cognac
This is my favourite of the four because white jeans are my thing. I LOVE how they add a crisp and modern integrity to vintage ‘70s mustard and earthy cognac boots. The cognac boots effectively bookend the model’s hair. If the model had black hair, black boots would work well too. The tight ribbed top and wide jeans are super trendy silhouettes at the moment, but by all means create a similar vibe with silhouettes that are more to your taste. Classic, bohemian, avant-garde, sporty, eclectic, romantic, retro – you name it, it’s all good. Add jewellery, watch and eyewear as desired.
