Cute Yellow Clothes For Spring 2012

Why You Need to Try Out Our Latest Color Combo Crush — Yellow and Cool Neutral Tones

After lusting after Phillip Lim's Spring-perfect vertical-striped tops and Rebecca Minkoff's easy separates on the Spring runways, we noticed a distinct common denominator — one seriously cool color combo. Designers juxtaposed soft shades of yellow against slick neutral tones for a refined vibrancy effect, and we'd be lying if we said this pairing didn't strike us as particularly Easter-hue friendly, too. To add to our current crush status, starlets like Elizabeth Olsen and Kate Bosworth have been spotted sporting the look, proving this color combo is not only gorgeous, but totally wearable too. Case in point: Kate sparkled in a cream yellow Prada number, complete with darker yellow and neutral-toned jewel accents, at the premiere of L!fe Happens, while Elizabeth made a case for a more decadent version in Emilio Pucci's embellished minidress at the Critics' Choice Awards. We love the way the colors add both a dash of bright and a side of subtlety — a striking color scheme worth wearing this Spring.
