Mustard Yellow: The Sophisticated Color for Winter 2020/2021

What better way to bring on the final winter months than with a sophisticated and bold top to brighten up your wardrobe? One of the more unique and trendy colors of 2020 was mustard yellow. The bright, bold color adds just enough “pop” to an outfit to bring it from drab and boring to fun and sophisticated. Wearing this bright color will lift your spirit.

Mustard Yellow: The Sophisticated and Bold Color


Weather and temperatures can make us feel gloomy and washed out in winter. Especially this time of year, classic neutrals tend to take over, filling our closets with blacks, whites, browns, tans and greys; bright, bold colors can come off as taboo, with the thought that only certain people can pull them off and make them work well. This daring shade of yellow, however, has taken the fashion world by storm and works well with all sizes, shapes and complexions.

A mustard yellow sweater is paired with black infinity scarf for a casual, sophisticated look.

Mustard yellow is a naturally warm color and adds some cheer to an otherwise plain outfit. If you’re looking for a comfortable and casual look, a simple pair of black leggings or fitted jeans pair well with an oversized mustard sweater. I chose to dress up this outfit with a pair of heeled black ankle boots and a black infinity scarf. The dark colors create a nice contrast to the bold yellow, providing a flattering and stylish ensemble.

Pair black leggings with an oversized mustard yellow sweater. Accessorize with black ankle boots and a statement necklace for a more sophisticated and classy outfit.

To make this a more sophisticated and elegant outfit, change out the scarf for a long statement necklace or add some bangles. A great feature of mustard yellow is it matches with both gold and silver jewelry, making your accessorizing possibilities endless.


Looking to try this trend?

Here’s what you’ll need:

– A long sleeve sweater or blouse in mustard yellow

– Black leggings or dark wash jeans, to provide contrast with your bold top

– Ankle boots, either black or a deep shade of grey

Pair this look with a scarf in darker colors (black, navy, maroon) for contrast or a long, statement necklace for elegance.
