As color it would be perfect for both casual/informal looks  and office/formal  looks.

Who does it fit and who does not

For those who have a cold skin undertone, mustard yellow should be avoided, at least with regard to the upper side of the body. this color definitely fits well  those who have a warm or dark skin tone.

So, what are the best color matches?



  • Firstly, you should remember that mustard color, being a pretty showy  warm and brilliant one, it can not be combined with glittering colors because it will be not highlighted enough.


  • Certainly two of the colors with which it may matched best  are white and black, so you need of basic colors  to have a better fit. Coming back to what we said before about black is definitely  a perfect combination. That’s why  black will  give you more elegance and refinement to your mustard look, and black  is also perfect for both day-to-day looks and evening looks. The black makes the warm shade of mustard color stand out, giving you a glamorous and very sophisticated allure to your outfits.


  • It can be also matched with dark brown, beige, with brown leather color and in general with all those colors that enhance its brilliance.

  • Another very chic match is that with purple and plum colors.

  • If you want  to dare, the perfect  idea will be the total yellow mustard look. But It’s To be completed with sober accessories, if you don’t  want to create too much effect and especially if  if you want to have mustard as  the protagonist of the look.


  • Pants and skirts :  in general, as we said above, mustard yellow is not the perfect one if you don’t’ have a  bright skin. So, you can wear mustard pants but you should know how to combine them in order to avoid  an off-skin effect.
    So it would be better to wear a pair of pants, or a skirt combined with a t-shirt with a solid color and neutral nuances. Another combination could be a blouse with floral fantasies. To complete  the look you can take a nice pair of ballerinas (obviously if you want to be comfortable), or with a pair of dizzy high heels (if you want to be more chic).
