Citrus hues were big for spring, especially yellow, which was featured on the runways at Marc Jacobs, Alice + Olivia and Jenny Packham. Goldie Hawn and Goga Ashkenazi both wore the color to the amFAR Gala last week, but only one of them got it right. Hint: it’s the one who doesn’t look like she’s wearing a shower curtain.
Anyone can wear yellow — just remember to not fight your skin tone. Cooler-based yellows like daffodil or pineapple complement blue-based undertones, while orange-ier yellows like cadmium and saffron do better on those with warmer skin tones. Neon yellow is fun, too, but when you’re doing anything neon, you need to restrict it to just ONE piece of clothing or accessory — a dress, a purse, a pair of pumps — but never all three at once, unless you’re part of a Salt-n-Pepa cover band called Rosemary & Thyme.
