This season, color coordinate your clothes with your daughter by wearing cute paired outfits in beautiful shades of yellow. The garments don’t have to match exactly — just be similar styles. Here are some of our favorite yellow pieces for moms and daughters.
How to wear yellow
If you think you can’t wear yellow, think again. Yellow comes in so many shades — from pale pastel yellow to bright school bus yellow to deep golden yellow. For a light complexion and blonde hair, choose muted hues rather than bold shades. Bright lemon yellow usually looks best with medium or olive skin tones. Those with dark skin may look best with a true gold. Experiment to find the right yellow for you.
