New Fall Hue: Mustard

This fall is a refreshing change from the darkness that's normally seen on the runways (or my closet).  Of course black is still the predominant, moody fall staple, but it's punctuated with pops of Klein blue, all shades of red, winter white, and jade.  One color you don't see very much is this golden-y mustard hue injected into a few designers' collections.  It's a tough color to wear, but with the right skin tone or styling, it's stunning.

Not the hue for you?  Try adding a subtle detail like a scarf, bracelet or clutch.  If mustard does not compliment your skin tone when worn against your face, you can wear it on the bottom as a pant or skirt with a color on top that better suits you. 

Or win a mustard scarf here!

I think mustard is fun, as long as it's not head to toe like on the runway lol Mix and Match Fashion
