Some say that June, July and August are like the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of summer – in which case, it’s time to deal with the grim reality that winter is coming (yet again!)

But while the weather is set to turn grey and dreary, it doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to follow suit (though we do love our greys). In fact, now’s the perfect time to add a splash of colour into the mix.

Mustard yellow is one of our fave shades at the moment, and as we saw on the AW17 catwalks back in February, this colour is fabulous all year round! Of course, loads of the top design houses have been going yellow.

In this post, we’re going to explain how to wear mustard tops and dresses in a way that turns plenty of heads!


How to Wear Mustard Yellow – Introducing the Wilderness Spice Collection

Our brand new Wilderness Spice Collection has everything you need to make a stylish statement, without compromising on practicality.

Let’s face it, we may have every intention of dressing for the weather that we want, rather than the weather that we have, but we’ve learned the hard way that only a fool braves the British autumn months without having a jacket to hand.


That’s why we’ve carefully pulled together a collection that covers all bases. For every printed floral top, there’s a lightweight parka to go with it.

We’ve previously talked about the importance of layering and it’s always a good idea to have plenty of different options in your wardrobe. Roll neck jumpers are an absolute must and we just adore oversized knitwear!

As versatile as they are cosy, roll necks go really well with jeans and jeggings, keeping you warm without looking like you’re prepping for a trip to the Arctic Circle.

How to nail the mustard yellow trend

So, those mustard yellows then.


As well as cute floral designs, ruffled dresses and skinny jeans, earthy spice tones are a key feature across the Wilderness Spice range. This includes mustard yellow – be it bold zip-up tops or subtle embellishments on an elegant long-sleeve dress.

The key to pulling off the mustard yellow trend is finding the right balance. You wouldn’t wear a yellow top with yellow trousers and yellow shoes – I mean, you can if you like, we’re not here to judge.

Our Honey Yellow Zip Front Top goes perfectly with denim. Whether you choose light blue jeans or you prefer a darker charcoal shade, you simply can’t go wrong.

It’s an old cliché, but sometimes less really is more. If you want to rock yellow in a more understated way, why not try a dark outfit – like our Floral Choker Detail Long Sleeve Dress (pictured above) – and bring it to life with a few pops of bright colour?

Finish off your outfit with some brightly coloured shoes or a bag and you’ll look totally fab!

With all of this in mind, here are our five quick tips to help you master the mustard yellow look:

1. Don’t overdo it – get the right balance

2. Denim is your friend

3. So are shoes and accessories!

4. Try it with different shades – mustard can work with brighter yellow accessories.

5. Make it your own – don’t be afraid to mix and match with different colours and styles; you own this look!
