HOW TO WEAR BLACK AND YELLOW AND NOT LOOK LIKE A BUMBLE BEE

Posted on: April 26, 2016 by Yummo Mummo

Let’s face it – black on yellow can make you look much like a bumble bee OR a bruised banana. You choose. But Im here with some great news! You CAN still wear them together and not look like either, its all about the method.  And now that summer is approaching, yellow is such a gorgeous sunshin-ey color to incorporate into your summer wardrobe. Yellow makes everything better and brighter.

Dress details – Striped off the shoulder Bardot Dress from the Target Who What Wear collaboration / $29.99 / only in black HERE / Plus Size in Striped $32.99 HERE. I am wearing a size M (which I can’t see online any longer so have provided alternatives).

 

I have chosen to implement my black through a simple black and white stripe. The pattern neutral in the world of patterns. And I have introduced the yellow through my statement jewelry! Voila, it’s that simple.

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. Fun fact – Melissa means ‘honeybee’ in Greek. Check it out on Wikipedia

Off the shoulder tops and dresses are a trend for spring/summer 2016. Outift modification – add a different top and turn this dress into a skirt. OR add a longer skirt over and then have an off the shoulder top look.

I was heading out for an evening event so I added matching chandelier earrings for even more of a statement. If this was a day time outfit, I would just stick with the necklace OR earrings. It all depends on your comfort level too.
