Black and Yellow

30 May

Yellow Forever 21 Blazer, Gianni Bini Leather Shorts

Black and yellow is always a tricky combination when it comes to fashion. My biggest fear when I want to match the two colors is that I’m going to end up looking like a bumble bee (a well-dressed bumble bee, but a bumble bee no less). For this complex color combination I’ve come up with one simple solution: let one color make the statement. In today’s outfit, the yellow blazer is obviously doing all the talking! I wanted to keep the rest of the look simple, so as not to look like a busy bee ;).

I like to add small pops of color whenever possible to complement the statement color, which is yellow in this case. I love the way yellow and turquoise look together, so I opted for some turquoise earrings and a bangle. I’ve also come to the conclusion that these heels are in my top 5 favorite shoes of all time. When I’m putting an outfit together, these are literally the first pair I gravitate toward. My next shoe purchase is going to have some tough competition!

      Thanks, girlfriend! It feels good to be back! Still trying to get back in the swing of things! I still have to take the test, unfortunately. I’m hoping to take it soon (and pass)!

    Great look! The yellow of the blazer just pops! I like how you kept things “neutral” with the leather shorts and black top.

      Thank you! I didn’t want it to be too overwhelming since the yellow is pretty flashy!

    Totally cute! I love how the leather shorts give your outfit some texture – and the turquoise is the perfect touch!

    You’re right girl, you don’t look like a bumble bee at all! The yellow is such a gorgeous colour on you. You styled this so lovely! And the little pop of turquoise is a nice touch 🙂 xo

      Thank you! It can be tricky pulling those two colors off, but I’m glad you think I did it well!

    You masterfully pulled off this black and yellow outfit! I know what you mean about being a little cautious that you don’t end up looking like a bumble bee with this color combo. I love your yellow blazer, such a great summer piece!

      Thanks, Jen! I avoided the two colors together for so long because I couldn’t get the bee image out of my head!
