FINAL TOUCH: How to Wear Mustard Yellow
Perhaps Coldplay was psychically predicting one of the biggest men’s fall 2014 trends when Chris Martin once so famously sang, “…and it was all yellow” — that is, if he meant mustard yellow. From monochrome mustard sweaters under navy blazers paired with grey slacks to bold yellow socks that add a pop of colour to an otherwise muted ensemble, dark yellow is having a fashion moment with streetwear aficionados and designers alike refusing to “hold the mustard,” at least as far as style is concerned.
The key to rocking mustard like a bone fide sartorialist is to embrace the hue like the condiment itself: in small but effective doses. Take yellow to the next level by investing in one key accessory: mustard-toned leisure-appropriate footwear. A boat shoe in the dramatic hue lets you stand out from the crowd while still kicking it casual. The au courrant colour looks killer when paired with another one of fall 2014′s hot tones: burgundy. Opt for maroon-hued slim-cut pants as the ultimate colour compliment to mustard shoes. Keep other yellow details to a minimum by forgoing the traditional route of matching your watch strap to your shoes and opt instead for a dark brushed metal watch. A graphic tee with hints of burgundy and mustard in the featured design subtly compliments the lower half of your ensemble. Top off the look with a pair of square aviator sunnies with brown-tinted lenses.
