Fall Fashion: Honey Gold

I've personally never been big on wearing yellow.
I mean... I think it looks great on other people, but not on me.

However, this "honey gold" color that is becoming popular this fall is really growing on me.
The question is... could I pull a color like this off?
Or any shade of yellow, for that matter?

I mean... isn't yellow such a bright, happy color?! It's also a fun, flirty color (red is too... but that's another post). AND it works perfectly with fall, especially if you get a more rustic, earthy shade. But bright yellow works just as well because fall is all about bright colors. Haven't you noticed?!

Maybe I'm just not wearing the right shade of yellow for my skin tone. Yellow actually looks good on practically anybody! At least, according to Stacey on What Not to Wear... And I tend to pick out bright, neon yellow colors. Perhaps honey gold would look better on me.

Plus, yellow goes with so many of the other popular fall colors. It's the perfect way to add a bright splash to your outfit.

New personal fashion challenge: buy something yellow.
And rock it.

  1. Idhave never of thought of wearing this colour but it looks great!!
    Thank you for linking up at the Friday chaos this week
    Have a great weekend

  2. I'm so obsessed with buttercup yellow. I could own every dress in that color if I could. I wanted that as my wedding colors as well but went with something different. Yellow is also my fav color nail polish I'm always wearing as well. Yellow is awesome!

  3. Hi, newest follower from the Friday Blog Hop. Hope you can stop by. : )

    I do not wear much yellow either. I love the color and I think it would look okay on me. I'm just not sure. I do love the knitted scarf you have pictured.

    Have a great weekend!! Julie from Stlavonlady - a cat, girl, man and me!

  4. Yellow is a happy color. At one time I had a nice supercrew Ford F-150 that was Fire Engine Yellow. It was a very bright happy color. I loved my truck! I cannot wear yellow because it just makes me look so washed out. I wish my complexion supported the color. Stopping by from the New That Friday Blog Hop!

  5. I don't have a lot of yellow, but when I wear it I feel sunshiney. :) Smiley and happy.

    Found you at That Friday Blog Hop! New follower.


  6. Oh I'm loving this color. It looks like the foldenrod that's ALL over the fields in New York right now. I can't wait to start mixing in more colors for fall.
