As a blonde with fair skin, I have always shied away from anything yellow — mustard, golden, neon, whatever. I believed it washed me out and clashed abnormally with my hair color. Oddly enough, I’ve never really seen a lot of yellow hues out on the street in general, even on those with darker skin tones or different hair colors. Yellow has always been a hard color to pull off. While I have only two or three T-shirts in this hue, I really wish I could feel more confident in this sunny style.

Today’s Fashionista proves that a fair-skinned person can pull off sunshine yellow in a business casual uniform. Simply adding more color to a classic button-up blouse maintains a summery look. This Fashionista did just that with her necklace and a turquoise Vera Bradley tote. For a more casual look, this Fashionista could have replaced her conservative skirt with some dark denim and gladiator sandals.

This week, I challenge all of you to take a leap of faith with one of the less coveted colors around, and invest in a yellow piece this summer. Whether it’s a detailed tunic or simple T-shirt, a yellow piece will add some sunshine into your wardrobe.
