So I’ve been away for some time but have an outfit for the month of December. It’s not really one outfit but rather one colour that is really popular at the moment.
Mustard seems to be popping up in all kinds of fashion. It’s a nice warm, natural colour that suits most skin tones. I think when choosing products, you’ll need to find the right depth and brightness of the colour and match it towards your skin.
The colour has been circulating for some time in formal wear as pictured above, but I like it for us, here in Australia as we lead into summer.
The outfit that caught my eye is worn by Jennifer Lopez when she was in Peru recently.
I think what striked my interest is the natural beige colour heels that helps compliment this outfit – and also the fact she has killer legs!
Please find below my attempt at providing some reasonably prices mustard fashion items that may interest you.
Motel Laureen Dress with Sheer Panel
Found this dress at Asos. It comes In Mustard and Wine. It’s simple but let’s you have the option to wear black accessories with the outfit. I would not recommend wearing a belt with this. Black heels or ankle boots will be enough for this outfit. I can see a choker being worn with this and a clutch. I think the black helps break up the colour and helps against all skin tones as black clothing suits everyone! This dress costs approximately AU$34.95.
Pheobe V Back Shift Dress
I like this dress because it can be worn both casually or in the evening. I like the pattern of how the fabric comes together. It’s quite short, so I wouldn’t wear it if you aren’t happy with the way your legs look. Pumps work best with this dress – I can’t see this with any strappy heel. With this dress, I think simplifying the jewellery will help because of the design of the dress – No necklace though bracelets would be fine. I found this at Boohoo and costs approximately AU$24. There are so many sale items on this website with up to 50% off original prices. Everything is listed in British pounds.
Mustard bow shift dress
I think petite and cute when I see this dress. The mid white trimmings acts as a belt. This dress is good to accessorize with white shoes and I believe you could pull off pearls with this outfit also. I can also see a drop necklace with this dress but no over-accessorizing needed. The dress is simple so therefore it should be toned down when choosing accessories. Found this dress at Dorothy Perkins at approximately AU$24. It’s also a good site to find sale items with over 1000 items on Sale for up to 50% off.
Skater Belt Dress by Rare
Found this casual dress from Top Shop for approximately AU$50. I can see this worn with tights and ballet flats. Alternatively, it could work with brown boots whether knee high or ankle boots, but I can’t envision it with heels – I think this mainly to the type and cut of the dress. It reminds me of the 50s for some reason and I can see a sun hat worn with this. Good thing about Top Shop is that there is free worldwide delivery with orders over £75.
Promise Shoes – Lipa Mustard
I absolutely love the style of these shoes. My only problem is that I don’t like wear really high heels because I am a clutz and most likely will fall down – it’s like a regular occurence. This shoe is perfect for dressing up a casual outfit or complimenting evening wear. Found this at heels.com and costs US$52.99. Actually really like this website because of their extensive range and you can find some interesting designs for footwear.
No Cutting Corn-ers Heel
Modcloth sells this pair of shoes for US$42.99. Thought these were mega cute as they are girly and sweet! I think it’s the bow that makes it special. This I can see worn with jeans or a nice summer dress. I also see baby doll tops and shorts worn with these shoes. I think these heels can pretty much go with any casual outfit because it’s simple.
Ladies Platform High Heels
Found these shoes off Ebay from a store call Fashion hunt for AU$39.99. The store sells a lot of ankle boots and heels and thought this was a good idea to include a classic pump. I think these can be worn both casually and with evening wear. If you’re not into platforms probably best to stay away. They look comfortable as well.
Miss Loretta – Mustard Yellow Flower Headband
Found this cute find on Etsy from a Shop Sunshine and Carousels. Love this shop because everything is handmade and you can find some cute hair accessories from this shop. This headband costs US$20 but when you think about the time and effort placed into making it, the prices on Etsy don’t seem that bad. They are other stores that sell cool accessories with some mustard items include, Bip And Bop, Hayeslnutt Designs, and Bigg Creations. I suggested these stores because of their hair accessories and earrings. There are plenty of stores out there but these stores had some interesting designs.
Found these real cheap accessories from Evans. It is actually a plus size store for women from the UK but they also sell accessories for really cheap. the earring listed above only cost £2.00 which is approximately AU$3.00. They do ship internationally and most of their accessories are on sale. I think the most expensive accessory I saw was £18.00 which is about AU$27. Thought this was a really good site plus you can check out the clthing if you are plus size too!
Ebags Mustard Handbags
Every bag I found on this website was on sale or highly discounted. The mustard bags I found above ranged from US$22.40-$39.20. There is a vast range in all colours imaginable and you can also find designer brands on this website. It lists on the website free shipping over $99 but not sure if this includes internationally. I personally like the clutch in the middle because you can match it with the first dress I listed.
If mustard doesn’t really interest you, then stay tuned for next month as I will have new outfit/colour to work with. Hope you enjoyed this read and hope it gave you a different stance on the colour. I think it’s a nice neutral toned colour that suits everyone! I should be blogging more in the upcoming weeks but had a rest over the Christmas break. Keep safe and Happy New Year!
