From high pitched and radiant lemon to somber and pale mustard, yellow is trending and had a huge presence this awards season. Think Reese Witherspoon, Viola Davis and Natalie Portman to name a few at the Golden Globes rocking the happy color. 

While I wasn’t at the Golden Globes, I’ve seen the earth starting to wake up from its long winter slumber with young buds that remind us that Spring days are in the horizon appearing all over. Wearing pastels is one way to liven up a look and put us in that fresh Springy mood. 

Junya Watanabe and Roksanda whom I love and styled a few of their pieces here are a couple designers embracing yellow and seriously infusing it into their collections. Will you be giving your wardrobe a pastel update this season?

SWEATER DRESSES
Sweater dresses are oversized sweaters that can be worn with leggings, pants, tights or by themselves. 
Some gals shy away from sweater dresses for fear of looking bigger than they really are. While a lot of sweater dresses are fitted, I have to admit that some of them hang loosely and have a non flattering silhouette. To avoid feeling frumpy and take any sweater dress from drab to fab, go for bold colors, show ones featuring slits love, pair them with fun pieces or go for ones that feature a trendy flash dance shoulder. They’re totally functional, easy and get the job of keeping us warm done. 

HOW TO STYLE
If your sweater dress falls above the knee, throw on a pair of fish net tights and finish with over the knee boots.

How about fish net ankle socks and sneakers for a laid back yet chic look. Finish the look with a cross body bag.

Switch out the sneakers for a pair of killer ankle boots.

 Have a fear of losing your waist styling a sweater dress? Bring back the waist back with the addition of a belt. While skinny belts work just fine, I feel like corset belts work best for this.

Dress it up with a pair of heels or dress it down with flats. Where you’re headed determines what’s most appropriate. Obviously if you’re spending the day at Disney Land, you want to opt for flats over heels.

Accessories like scarves, fedoras and even fur stoles and vests will further elevate your sweater dress look from meh to totally amazing.

Up your layering game by wearing a classic button down shirt under your SD. With the peekaboo collar and sleeves, this is one of my preferred ways to style sweater dresses and sweaters too. Glam it up with a simple necklace draping down from under the collar.


TODAY’S LOOK
Today I’m showing a mustard mellow yellow sweater dress that ticks a lot of boxes for me. Yaasss to that slit baby! While it is a toned down version of bright happy yellow, mustard makes for a perfect pop of color and what better to embrace the up coming newness in and also sport to the restaurant ‘Lemonade’ than a sweater dress in the ‘it’ hue of the season.

The loose silhouette is very forgiving and I could indulge in food which y’all know is one of my loves shame on me without feeling and looking like an oompa loompa.


CURRENTLY OBSESSING
I’m currently obsessing over this and this and this and can think of a million ways to style this  and this. I've got the perfect beanie (cos I love those so) to pair with this. This color block dress is another favorite and so is this batwing dress featuring a turtle neck.

MUSTARD YELLOW is a soft shade of yellow that gives that fresh appeal and puts us in high spirits. Have you just become the latest yellow enthusiast or are you still overcome with trepidation? I say jump in, and see this hue totally keep you in hight spirits 

How was Valentines Day? Hope y’all felt like the kings and queens that you truly are.

  10. Mustard yellow is one of my favorite colors in fashion and it sure looks lovely on you. Pairs well with those beautiful lips and fierce shoes too. It is nice how it does not hide you away, still lets those lovely breasts be known a bit and I am certainly a big fan of that slit :) You look so beautiful, so sunny, so sweet, dear. Wow!

  16. I do agree, yellow is very trendy right now and I love it. It is such a positive and bright colour and it comes in so many fabulous shades. I love how you styled that yellow sweater dress. Bold sweater dresses are a way to go! There is something so fun about them. The hairdo is perfect as well...and the heels are gorgeous. I love the print on them...jazzes up this look a little.

    You look stunningly beautiful dear Idu!!! like a ray of sunshine....very feminine and very beautiful ray of sunshine.

    Great tips for wearing sweater dresses. All the combinations that you suggested sound great. I'm thinking about sweater dress and fishnets combo- and it sounds lovely....and the addition of belt is also a great suggestion.

    My Vday was alright, kind of busy, but it was nice nevertheless. I'm feeling the month of love vibes still and I'm loving it. I reawakened my love for baking, so that is always good:)....especially for my mood. <3

  36. I love sweater dresses and i particularly like this one in the mustard yellow hue. Pairing it with the animal print heels and Chanel bag definitely upped the ante for an other wise casual look. Loving yellow this season as well. I also like the idea of a waist cinching corset belt. That flash dancer shoulder...oh so sexy.

  84. Idu, I love the color mustard, it is a great way to wear yellow without being too bright... sweater dresses are so comfortable and pairing them with a pair of tights and boots or heels look very chic xox... The spring can't come soon enough for me, we had a really rough beginning in February with massive snowfalls... but the last two weeks have really been spring like weather that is melting all that snow... I have been able to get away with wearing a hoodie when I go out... I look forward to being able to do that everyday xox
