i used to absolutely despise this color, but now i'm starting to think it'd be an okay sweater color especially in the fall. it'd probably look alright on my tan skin.

this was an odd question aha.

opinions?

I get what you mean.. I've had a mustard yellow cardigan in my wardrobe for flaming ages it's a lovely style but the colour has always put me of a bit but it's nice so I want to wear it but I'm not sure if I like it or not, if you get what I mean..

I think this is quite a nice way to wear mustard yellow (without the ill-fitting jeans):

I think it depends on your color. On darker complexions it looks pretty amazing.

I hate actual mustard, but I do like this color on me. I have a very prescious Anthropologie dress with a big mustard skirt, sorry for crappy photo, the color is a bit off. :\


Though I never really think of "mustard yellow" as "mustard," I often just think of it as a more golden or warmer or muted yellow.

Also that's totally not how the dress fits on most people, my boobs just take up way more space in the top, ahaha...

I love the color, but it looks so bad on my pale skin. Looks sooo cute on darker tones though !

I adore it. It's one of my recent favorites. I just bought some mustard mary janes (in my latest look) and I have a cardigan, scarves, etc. I think it's great for accents.
