Intense, murky, neither crisp nor fresh, mustard may not be the flattering color as it sometimes makes you look “ill and jaundiced”. Since the ‘70s style have been making a fashionable comeback, retro and bohemian vibes bring with them a typical color palette of earth tones like brown, beige, burgundy, forest green, rust and mustard. Above them all, mustard looks particularly ‘70s that you can wear modernly and stylishly.
Though mustard often loses its appeal when it’s worn with other murky earth tones, it would look great when worn with cool shades of blue denim, ink blue, teal or navy. You can wear mustard colored accessories like a scarf, hat, belt, necklace, clutch, shoes and such with your outfit in cool shades whether it’s a blue dress, blue denim shorts, teal blazer, or navy jacket.
If you’re not a fan on neon or bright yellow, mustard can be great for you as it’s less bright and acidic. Since it particularly looks good on women with dark skin tones and golden or red highlights in their hair, take advantage of wearing mustard top with your favorite bottoms. This way, your hair and complexion will create a color harmony with your outfit. Knitted sweater in mustard shade look more fashionable than other plain shades of white, cream, and gray.
If you think mustard pants look too dramatic or too seventies for you, opt for a mustard skirt instead. Whether an accordion skirt, pleated skirt, midi full skirt, peplum maxi skirt, or even a pencil mini skirt, a mustard skirt look so feminine and chic on you. You may modernize its vibe by pairing your skirt with trendy tops like a crop top or asymmetrical top, or channel the 70’s vibe by teaming them with peasant tops. Just be creative and stylish to dress up or dress down your skirt, creating the style you’re aiming for.
A mustard dress can look bohemian, classic, feminine, or modern depending on what dress style you’re going for. To keep the look bohemian, you may go for maxi lengths in voluminous silhouette or even ones with boho-inspired prints. On the other hand, to channel a modern vibe, go for ones with cut-out style, sequin embellished, glittery or metallic versions that can take you from day to night.
If you’re not confident wearing mustard intentionally, go for mustard coats that you can easily put on and take off whenever you feel it. Wool coats look classic while fur coats look more winter-friendly. When wearing them with a dress or separate ensembles, always keep your outfit in the darker shades or neutral shades to avoid clashing with the color of your mustard coat.
Coordinating Mustard Outfit
If you’re brave enough to channel your 70’s vibe or simply wish to partake into co-ord trend, go for a suit and pants combination in mustard shade and keep the rest of your accessories neutral. You may go for a crop top and skirt combination, sweater top and colored jeans, as well as bandeau top with jeans.
Prints in Mustard Shade
If you’re a fan of prints and patterns, incorporate the earthy shade of mustard into your prints to look creative and stylish without going for all-mustard outfit. Stripes, checks, polka dots, floral and such can be great looking classic and stylish without losing your 70’s vibe.
