HOW TO STYLE A MUSTARD YELLOW DRESS FOR SUMMER?

How to style a mustard yellow dress for summer?  If bright yellow isn't your thing, why not try wearing a mustard yellow dress? Mustard yellow is easy to combine and it looks great with neutral shades. Mustard yellow looks best on fair skin tones, or so they say but feel free to break that rule. I really like yellow in all tonalities so I wear mustard yellow despite being an olive skin lady. Yellow is such a happy colour, isn't it? French Vogue proclaimed yellow the colour of spring & summer 2020. Today I will share two summer outfits featuring a mustard yellow dress. I will also show you different ways you can style it. We're all about sustainability and shopping our closets here on modaodaradosti fashion and art blog
HR Kako nositi oker haljinu za ljeto? Ako jarko žuta nije vaš prvi izbor, zašto ne probati nositi oker haljinu? Oker nijansa poznata kao i boja senfa se lako kombinira i izvrsno izgleda s neutralnim nijansama. Oker najbolje izgleda na svijetlim tonovima kože, ili barem tako kažu, ali slobodno prekršite to pravilo. Jako volim žutu boju u svim tonovima, tako da rado nosim senf žuto, iako sam dama s maslinastom kožom. Žuta je tako sretna boja, zar ne? Francuski Vogue proglasio je žutu boju idealnom za proljeće i ljeto 2020. Danas ću podijeliti dva ljetna ruha u oker nijasni. Pokazat ću vam i različite načine na koje možete nositi haljnu boje senfa. Sve se vrti oko održivosti i kupovine u vlastitom ormaru na mome modnom i umjetničkom blogu moda oda radosti.

THE STORY OF THE DRESS
 I got this mustard yellow long sleeved dress in a collaboration two years ago. I first wore it in this post where I gave you tips and tricks you need for vacationing at home. I featured it again a few times,  for example when I spoke about styling yellow for the summer. Speaking of that, read this post to find out 7 easy ways to rock the yellow trend. 
HR Ovu oker žutu haljinu s dugim rukavima sam dobila u suradnji prije oko dvije godine. Prvo sam ju nosila u ovoj objavi gdje sam vam dala savjete i trikove koji su vam potrebni za odmor kod kuće. Ponovno sam ju pokazala na blogu još nekim objavama, primjerice kada sam  govorila o tome kako nositi žuto ljeti.  Kada već govorim o tome, pročitajte i ovaj post kako biste saznali 7 jednostavnih načina za ljuljanje žutog trenda.

HOW THIS DRESS AND I WENT OUR SEPARATE WAYS FOR A WHILE
My mother liked this dress so I gave it to her. That is why it disappeared from this blog. Had I known that she wouldn't wear it, I'd have kept this dress for myself. My mother doesn't wear dresses often. I cannot imagine why. However, recently when I was in Split I stumbled onto this mustard yellow dress  in her closet and I borrowed it from my mother. I wore it twice while I was in Split.  Scroll down to see and read more about styling this dress.

WEARING A MUSTARD DRESS WITH AN OLIVE GREEN VEST FOR A VISIT TO UNIVERSITY CAMPUS IN SPLIT CITY
This is an outfit I wore for visiting University Campus in Split city. I just love the architecture here. Anyhow, here I paired this long sleeved mustard printed mustard dress with white heeled sandals, a second hand vintage bag and a long olive vest. This long olive vest matches this dress so well, doesn't it? I would say that mustard yellow looks great with brown and olive tones. Combing warm tones is a non brainer. Mustary yellow can also look fabulous with neutral as you will see bellow. This was a fun combo to wear. I even illustrated this look. I made a few collages where I featured my fashion illustrations made specially for this post. Can you spot them? The medium for these illustrations is mixed: digital plus traditional. I just applied some paint digitally and painted over some of my older works. If you're interested in purchasing my fashion art, I have a redbubble account (where I don't remember when I last made a sale but I'm linking it up in the case that someone might be actually interested seeing that I don't sell my art independently or take orders these days).

DIFFERENT WAYS TO STYLE A LONG SLEEVED MUSTARD YELLOW DRESS
Bellow you can see different ways I have worn this mustard yellow dress. I have paired it with sneakers on a number of occasions. It looks great paired with dressy strap sandals as well. If you want to wear this dress in an elegant way, you should opt for elegant shoes. It doesn't have to be a pair of heels (although heels always flatter the figure), you can also look dressed up with a stylish pair of flats. I really liked the look where I wore this dress with silver sandals with kitten heels. That combo looked so elegant and felt so look. If I still had this dress, I'd wear it again. 


STYLING A MUSTARD YELLOW DRESS WITH JEANS AND HEELED SANDALS
The second way  I styled this mustard dress while I was in Split city was by pairing it with jeans, heeled sandals and burgundy bag. When it comes to wearing jeans with dresses for summer, you should opt for lighter dresses like this one. Here is another outfit that features jeans worn with a dress. This was a really comfortable look for a walk by the sea. This is a lovely areaDo you remember my post about HOW TO FIND THE BEST PHOTO WORTHY DESTINATIONS IN SPLIT CITY?  If you do, then you probably remember how photogenic and visually stunning this coastal city truly is.

As always, thank you for reading and visiting. A special thanks to my significant other for taking these shots, I love how he captured the architecture of Split 3. Have a great day!

  1. I'm a huge fan of yellow, and have had several yellow dresses over the past 40 years. It is my "power colour" - it makes me feel better when I wear it. This dress is lovely on you, and looks fabulous with the olive vest. I also like mustard yellow with burgundy, and with navy blue. Those white sandals are so cute - they really look great on you!

    Split is such a beautiful place. You have really opened my eyes to the beauty of Croatia, Ivana.

  9. A te il giallo mostarda sta benissimo!!!! Su di me invece è orribile fino a che non mi abbronzo, quindi lo posso indossare si e no 2 mesi l'anno...
    Abbinato al verde oliva poi è molto chic, soprattutto considerando il taglio e la stampa romantici del vestito che così vengono un pò attenuati!
    Bellissime foto ed illustrazioni!
    Baci!

  11. That's a lovely dress and your styling options are very inspiring. One of my favorite ways to wear shorter dressers is with jeans, I agree that yellow is a very happy color and mustard is a little easier to wear than brighter shades.

  23. Hello dear Ivana, hope you're enjoying this weekend and the first days of summer.

    First of all I want to thank you for your latest comment on my blog, you made a really good point with the example of baby clothes and it is always interesting and refreshing to read your feedback since they make me analyze things from many new perspectives :)

    And now talking about mustard I love this color since a few seasons, it is different and it is not the tone of yellow we are used to, in fact it has the presence and power of yellow but it is not too vibrant or overwhelming. Your options to style it are pretty interesting, it definitely goes good with a lot of tones but specially with military green and neutrals.

    PS: I loved that you added your illustrated dolls to the images, very very nice and creative *__*

    1. Thank you Pablo. You're right, it is not the tone of yellow we are used to but perhaps that is what makes it fun to wear?

  24. I love mustard and yellow for the summer!
    It's so strange because a few years ago, I would not be caught dead in the colour but I've grown in taste (I guess).
    I love mustard with a white, heeled sandal. I also love it as a monochromatic look.
    It actually makes me feel to light when I wear the colour especially in form of a dress.
    Love those white sandals you're wearing! They're to die for!

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
