As I sit here on this Saturday, May evening searching fashion websites as I usually do, I keep stumbling across yellow. Not everybody can pull that out which sucks. But above it all, it pleases me very much that we all collectively choose such happy color this season. I guess we subconsciously feel the need to bring color back to our wardrobes and fashion brands such as Forever21 embraced that.
Ironically on this rainy day, I spend hours creating outfits with forever21 dominance of yellow.
The whole promo idea of forever21 these days is to stay colorful.
I personally find it incredible. When I was younger, and well it’s pretty much still stuck with me till this day, I never wore any other color than black and different shades of black. Black is a visual display of elegance and it’s safe. You can never go wrong with a black and white combo.
But why do you need to play it safe?
I know the transition from black to colors is not easy. Hell, it took me several years since I somehow unconsciously opened the door for colors in my life. It was never planed in my case but one day I looked around and realized I overgrown my black phase. There are still days when I just pull out plain black clothing from my closet simply because of laziness and convenience. Unplanned.
But there are times when I do think and prepare my outfits beforehand.
Not like in the movies when a girl enthusiastically opens both of the closet doors at once and takes a deep breath when the music starts to play as she just starts pulling out clothes at random.
For me, it’s more like lying awake at night planning my next day in my head.
Basic clean style.
The dress with a turtleneck and pastel yellow stripes combined with a denim jacket is such a lovely combination. The yellow in this outfit is stable except for stylish retro yellow sunglasses I’m just obsessed with. The out of the world experience is intensified with alien boots and a double plastic yellow handbag.
If you’re still having a problem with adding colors to your dark wardrobe this outfit would be just for you. Mustard yellow long-sleeved dresses create a casual look. Combine it with dark accessories like foxy black high heel boots and a backpack and you have rebellious look right away. Another retro glasses because I love it.
This look is still somehow dark even though it’s yellow.
Artistic retro yellow tight turtleneck with denim mini skirt is so vintage. I couldn’t resist funky cherry earrings and a transparent plastic handbag. Platformer sandals are just a stable way to complete the look. It’s almost funny that each of these pieces would be dominant on their own in different combinations but in this one, they complement each other.
Who doesn’t know forever21?
Let’s yellow rule over this May.
