This fall’s hot new color is yellow, mainly muted yellows like mustard, with the color appearing in clothing, accessories, and even home furnishings. Not an easy color for most people to wear (it gives 99% of the women in the world a “washed” look), the key to pulling off the look is to layer it with a brighter color closer to your face.

Yellow is an interesting, complicated color. According to yellow’s publicist (okay, its Wikipedia page) the color is associated peace and happiness (those yellow smiley faces) and with jaundice and cowards (as in “you’re nothing but a yellow-bellied fool”).  It’s also associated with pornographic movies in China, which is interesting because it’s complementary color is (indigo) blue, which is associated with pornographic movies in the West.

Yea or Nay: Yellow
