We're going to come out and say it: Yellow is underrated. Despite its happy connotations—sunshine, buttered popcorn, daffodils, fresh lemonade (beverage and Beyoncé album)—few people we know make it a cornerstone of their wardrobe. Which is too bad, considering how it can lend a jolt of energy to an everyday outfit, or stand out in a sea of LBDs at night.
Plus, when you choose the right shade, it can be perfectly flattering, as proven by the many celebrities who have worn it in recent months.
The color was a street-style fave this season, and stars seem to have taken notice: Kendall Jenner has been spotted in egg-yolk yellow on several occasions recently, even once opting for a head-to-toe monochrome look. Selena Gomez's take on the trend last week was a little more approachable: a mustard-colored turtleneck paired with loafers and pinstripe jeans. And, then, of course, there's Emma Stone, who chose several lemon-hued dresses on her La La Land press tour as a nod to the film's promotional poster.
