High Yellow

"Look at the stars/ Look how they shine for you/ And everything you do/ Yeah they were all yellow..."--Coldplay, "Yellow."
So, I have a confession to make: I'm absolutely obsessed with the color yellow! It's the perfect shade for summer, automatically brightens up any outfit, and bonus: it looks simply smashing against most skin tones.
I thought it only fitting to look to celebs to see how to rock it proper:
Socialite Genevieve Jones accents a pretty pleated skirt and sheer black shawl with a searing sunflower top...

J. Lo looks crisp and cool in a pretty, pale, thigh-skimming sundress...

Kimora screams cute in a canary cardigan. Her adorable daughter Aoki helps her along...

And Beyonce accents a grey skirt and hoodie with scintillating citron Louboutin pumps...

Hot.
Yellows work whether patterned or solid, but steer clear of pairing yellow stripes with black...

You could end up looking like a bumble bee!

Yellow is definately at HOT color right now. I just recently bought these Yellow mini shorts online by La Rok from bleuclothing.com. They have really subtle pockets and come with a white belt. They have this medium rise, so it's not like everything is exposed. Great posting... yellow is where it's at.
