Who’s pumped for the first day of spring? I know I am! I can’t wait for the flowers to start blooming, the weather to start getting warmer, and to start wearing the adorable spring outfits I have sitting in my closet. That said, I wanted to share different ways you can incorporate one of this year’s Pantone Colors of the Year, Illuminating yellow.
What is Illuminating?
“Illuminating” is a bright, bold, sunny yellow that Pantone named as one of the two 2021 Colors of the Year. The other color is “Grounding grey,” but for this post we will be focusing on Illuminating yellow.
There are a few reasons why I love that Illuminating is one of the Colors of the Year for 2021. When I think of yellow, I think of spring and summer, happiness, and optimism. After what a dreary year 2020 was, we need some positivity in 2021. And yellow in general SCREAMS positivity (in my opinion). But I do know how lots of people tend to shy away from yellow. Some yellows can be a very vibrant bold shades and others can be so pale it might wash you out if you have a pale skin tone. But Illuminating yellow is the perfect shade to add to your closet this spring.
As you can see in the picture above, this shade of yellow is not as vibrant as a bright neon yellow. It’s much more subtle, but it does have a tad more vibrancy than a pale yellow. It’s the perfect in between shade and can be added to your outfits in many ways!
How to add Illuminating Yellow into your closet
For those of you who are hesitant about adding yellow into your wardrobe, you can start small. Pick a neutral outfit like jeans and a white tee or a simple sun dress and add a pop of Illuminating to it with jewelry, a handbag, or colored shoes!
When you want to incorporate Illuminating yellow into your clothing, but you’re not ready for a full yellow outfit, trying finding a patterned top or dress that has hints of yellow in it.
For my readers who are looking for a bright statement outfit, seek out dresses, skirts, and tops that are fully yellow.
