Today is the day we are bending the rules. Today is the day we all find a shade of yellow that looks amazing on us. It’s the time to discover a way to wear yellow in our spring outfits, and feel confident, and comfortable with our color choice. I am so happy to be teaming up with HPX360 ( which has been an amazing inspiration btw as you’ll see below) to show you 4 ways to wear yellow, and to share my styling tips.
Where did this talk of yellow come from you may ask? Read on ladies to find out.
Spring is just around the corner. With it, it brings spring fashion trends, and lots of excitement for us ladies who love to shop. One of the 2015 spring trends that caught my eye on the runway, and in celebrity outfits, is the color yellow. Not the mellow kind either, but the bold, loud type.
It’s great news for me as I’ve always loved yellow, and have worn it in some way, & form over the years consistently. After each of my style posts with outfit tips though, without fail, I receive reader emails asking me how to wear yellow. I understand it may be an intimidating color to add to your closets.
Taking my cue from the 4 cool “modes” of my new tech pretty HP X360, ( you’ll see this gadget is gorgeous) I am showing you 4 ways you can wear this happy go lucky, warm, cheerful, and energetic hue of the color rainbow.
HP X360 LAPTOP MODE & YELLOW JACKET OUTFIT
While HP X360 bends the rules of technology, it can still be used in the conventional laptop mode. As a blogger you can find me using this mode frequently. This mode inspired my yellow blazer outfit.
Yellow Style Tip: When wearing yellow, the number one rule is to find a shade that complements your complexion. If you are a brunette like me you’ll look better with a brighter shade of yellow such as this canary yellow jacket. In general, blondes look better in golden tones of yellow.
Yellow Style Tip 2: As yellow is already loud enough as a color, keep the shape of your clothing pieces simple, and clean. Trust me you can wear yellow, even if you stayed away from it until now.
If you are newly dipping your toes in this color, just make sure to wear it in universally flattering, effortless shapes like my blazer. Also using the color in separates break up the intensity of it if you feel like starting small.
Yellow Style Tip: I think you can have a lot of fun with your make-up while wearing yellow. I personally think yellow + red lips = Magic. 🙂
HP X360 TABLET MODE AND YELLOW JEANS OUTFIT
I love that HP X360 has a detachable keyboard, and can easily be used in tablet mode. It’s a really nice mode to use. The screen is huge compared to regular tablets so it is much easier on the eyes. My colorful outfit is inspired by the detachable keyboard which makes HP X360 special, and different.
Yellow Style Tip: Wearing yellow away from your face is a great way to compromise if you are not comfortable having the color right next to your complexion. These ankle length yellow skinny jeans are the perfect shade of yellow, almost making them a neutral.
Yellow tones go perfectly with so many other spring colors such as pink, green, and purple. If you want to feel extra cheerful, and happy, mix up yellow with other fun colors like I did. See above how the yellow pants anchor the outfit in a more muted shade.
I love the touch screen of HP X360. I also love taking it with me to play around with various apps, to check my e-mail, and of course it’s a lifesaver when on the road with the kids.
HP X360 STAND MODE AND YELLOW CLUTCH OUTFIT
The stand mode of HP X360 is great for watching your favorite TV shows without the keyboard on your way. I also use this mode for talking with family, & friends that live far away.
Yellow Style Tip: I can almost hear some of you say to me ” Elif, how about those of us, who don’t want to wear yellow in big portions? ” I have a solution for you ladies as well. Use yellow in small doses, like in a necklace, scarf, or in my case a clutch. In this outfit I use two tones of yellow. A big, & bold shade of yellow in my clutch, and gold tones in my peep toe heels.
When in doubt, pair yellow with black. I think in fashion, black is the color that makes everything all right, and safer. 🙂 Add in a fun second accent color like my emerald green flower necklace, and your outfit will be current with little touches of yellow.
HP X360 TENT MODE AND YELLOW IN A FITNESS OUTFIT
The tent mode of HP X360 is by far my kid’s favorite way to use it. They love to lay on the floor when they are watching things, and this mode is also perfect for drawing together on a picnic blanket on a nice sunny full day at the park.
Yellow Style Tip: As a fan of physical activity, sports, and fitness I wanted to show you how I wear yellow in my fitness outfits. Yellow is a color that highlights. ( think of all those highlighter pens you used at school, or maybe still use at your office) Wear it in an area that you want to accentuate.
In fitness outfits, I love to use it on the upper area of my body, as super tight fitness capris, or leggings can be tougher to wear in yellow. You would of course apply this to your own body shape. As I stated above yellow goes lovely with many other spring colors, and here I chose to mix it with pink, and a pop of green.
Sunday was such a sunny day here in the NW, so not typical. It had to be enjoyed. My family spent a huge portion of the day at our neighborhood park. If you look closely we are drawing hearts with the first letters of our names. <3
HP has also been bending the rules in their partnership with Meghan Trainor, documenting her first ever tour with HP X360. “All About That Tour” is a six episode documentary that is put together with the help of fans, and influencers. It is a behind the scenes look to everything from the tour life of Meghan Trainor, to her costumes. So fun, and original. I like her song All About That Bass. Perfect for singing to myself while driving haha.
Which yellow outfit would you wear? What is your favorite way to wear this trendy color? Which mode of HP X360 would you use the most? I would LOVE to hear your thoughts!!
