On days when you want to look bright and vivacious, a mustard yellow dress is a no brainer. It was so in fashion in 2020 and guess what? 2021 hasn’t brought much change as well. Mustard yellow is a sharp and bold color yet doesn’t look overblown if styled appropriately.
A mustard yellow dress itself provides enough pop of color to your look. This means that you should rather color coordinate it with neutrals and pastels to create a reasonable style. Therefore, when pairing jewelry with your mustard yellow dress, you gotta tone down the colors.
Anyway, let’s talk about it a bit in detail and find out some super gorgeous jewelry to pair with mustard yellow as you proceed through this guide!
What Colors Compliment Mustard Yellow?
Mustard yellow is a darker toned yellow and you can make a lot of color combinations with it. Mustard looks great in contrast with neutrals and pastels but is not limited to that only.
Learn to balance bright colors
Brighter colors such as fuchsia, magenta, and maroon also go really well with mustard yellow. But then, you need to learn to create a balance between mustard yellow and these bright colors.
Excess of bright colors like fuchsia or hot pink wouldn’t look promising with the already intense shade of mustard yellow.
Neutrals are your best bet
Neutrals such as gray, beige, ivory, black and white look phenomenal with a mustard yellow dress. You can incorporate various accessories when playing with neutrals.
In contrast to that, you can’t add a lot of accessories if you’re pairing your mustard yellow with brighter colors, else you’ll look quite extra.
Similarly, mint, baby pink, peach and lavender are a few of my favorite pastels to work with mustard yellow. Lavender and mustard yellow makes one hell of a bright and merry combo. Likewise mint and mustard yellow make an unexpectedly beautiful color contrast.
Blue – A perfect match?
Blue is yet another color that is a perfect match for mustard yellow. If you’re not too sure about other bright shades, blue is the color you should consider without a second thought!
What Color Accessories Go With Mustard Yellow Dress?
Accessorizing yourself with a sharp and piquant colored dress such as mustard yellow can be intimidating at times. Keeping a nice color coordination between everything you wear is challenging for some people.
Anyway, many of the perfect color matches for mustard yellow have already been mentioned above. And you can use those very colors for accessorizing your mustard yellow dress.
Mint green, various shades of blue, magenta, ivory, beige, lavender and of course black look beyond perfect when paired with mustard yellow.
But choosing the right color is not the only problem over here. At times it gets too difficult to find the perfect piece of jewelry for yourself, right?
To counter that problem, I’ll be taking you through my collection of the best jewelry to pair with a mustard yellow dress.
What Color Earrings Go With Mustard Yellow?
Multiple colors of earrings compliment mustard yellow dresses. You can go for statement pieces in neutral color shades such as black, ivory, beige or white, etc.
Blue also creates a dazzling look, especially darker shades of blue go really well with mustard yellow.
However, if you want to go for brighter colors for your earrings such as red, hot pink, or others, then I’d suggest you to go for smaller pieces such as studs or huggie hoops, etc.
Just like this pair of fuchsia studs is an amazing match for your mustard yellow dress.
It is best to go for tied back hairstyles for such small studs. A pop of fuchsia with bright mustard yellow is surely a drool worthy combination.
The next one is a super chic combo that you can sport with everyday clothing or a day out. The combo of white with a tiny turquoise stone in this pair of earrings goes really well with the warm hues of mustard yellow.
Lastly, another go to option for me is this pair of denim/blue colored earrings with a touch of silver in the frame.
These earrings are great for casual wear and pretty much appropriate for formal wear as well.
