Want to Add Orange or Yellow to Your Wardrobe? Try Some Accessories!


You love these bright shades of yellow and orange this season, but aren’t quite sure if you look good in them? Try some accessories to start!

Orange and Yellow Accessories

Accessoires are always a great way to add a bright color into your wardrobe, if you are a tiny bit tentative about wearing them as your clothing choices.

There are a multitude of wonderful shoes, sandals, and slides in a rainbow of shades, as well as colorful bags you may want to look at this season.

I just love yellow and find that it does work well with fair skin, but I often go for either a butter yellow, or my favorite- a mustard yellow. If you want a bright yellow, consider your complexion and how to might look.

Orange is growing on me more and more this season, and I will share a look or two I have worn in the past in orange. Since there are many variations of this shade, you are bound to find one you love that complements your skin tone.

Before you take a gander into clothing, you may want to see how you can incorporate these colors in accessories. Love this orange straw clutch!

I have a few tips for you:

  • Nothing like a monochromatic look with a touch of a bright color – gives it that extra “pop”!
  • Wear a neutral look- khaki is popular and classic at the same time. Try a neutral look and add that yellow bag or orange patterned scarf.
  • Pair yellow or orange with white. It is always such a fresh look!
  • Be careful of pairing black and yellow or black and orange, as you may look like a bumblebee or a halloween costume. Instead, I love a column look with the bright contrast in your accessories.
  • Try a classic look – like a white button down and denim shorts and add the color in your shoes.
  • Depending on your skin tone ( warmer) you could wear these colors together to make a bolder statement. ( with your accessories). Perhaps try colorful yellow earrings with an orange slide sandal for summer. Keep the rest of the look neutral.
  • Wear a complimentary color, and add orange or yellow with accessories.

This look demonstrates the use of bright yellow and orange in accessories. It is paired with a neutral outfit. Love it!

This look demonstrates how lilac and yellow work well together. The textured bag and yellow earrings are the perfect accent!

Remember, if you want to incorporate yellow or orange into your Spring wardrobe,  find the tone of these colors that will work with your complexion. I have fair skin, so these shades work. Neon colors may be too harsh and are often best as accessories. If you have olive or dark skin,  vibrant orange will look wonderful and be a statement.

Do you have yellow or orange  in your wardrobe? Do you find these colors easier to wear as accessories? Let me know in the comments.

    100% easier for me to wear these colors as accessories! I can wear a light muted yellow or a muted coral, but bright yellow and orange do not work with my pink complexion. But for something like bracelets or shoes, they are a lively choice. (It gives me a bit of a revisit of my 1980s childhood, but not in a bad way, haha.)

      I do think that is the way to go if you are unsure or don’t like the bright colors with your complexion. So many cute choices! I know what you mean about the 80s!

    I love orange – such a fun pop against so many other colors. I ordered a 4 pack of earrings and a yellow pair was included. I’m not sure how I’ll wear them yet but they are fun for summer. You wear these colors so well Jess!
