How to Wear Navy & Mustard Yellow Together:

  • Classic Neutral: Navy & mustard yellow are classic neutral colors that many busy professionals own. These neutrals pair well with many other brighter colors. But they also look great together, especially when you keep the neutrals throughout the outfit. I kept navy throughout this work outfit with my yellow blouses, reversible belts, & Cole Haan bow pumps. Navy is the primary color and is accented with mustard yellow & neutral accessories. Here are several options for navy trousers in different fit styles:

  • Easily add Texture: When you are wearing all neutral colors, it is easy to add in texture to an outfit to make one piece visually pop. I added in texture to this outfit with a gorgeous ruffle blouse from Ann Taylor. Now there is a pop of texture in a predominately navy & yellow work outfit. Here are several options for adding texture to your work outfit with mustard yellow tops:

  • Easily add Accessories: Neutral colors make accessorizing even easier. You can add in pops of color with accessories or keep classic neutral colors with accessories. I chose to keep some classic items with simple pendant necklace, rose gold watch & bracelet, Talbots navy belt and neutral navy Tory Burch clutch wallet. Easily change out the necklace, add in a bracelet or a bright handbag to this outfit. Here are several ideas for adding color to this outfit with accessories:

    I love every single one of these outfits! I’ve been wanting a mustard shirt but didn’t think it would be versatile enough for my wardrobe. Definitely adding to my wishlist!

  • Sandy

    I love love that mustard yellow color on you! I rarely wear yellow myself but I would totally wear this mustard tone. I love how you’ve styled it with navy and the burgundy cardigan finishes off the outfit perfectly!

  • Great styling! I love your hair!
