Styling Yellow Pants

When it comes to pants my wardrobe consists more of colored/printed pants than basics. So it is only natural that I added yellow/mustard pants to the mix. I received these wide leg/palazzo pants from Zaful and it turns out it looks better in person. Not only the color is gorgeous, the fit is flattering and so comfortable. I prefer loose pants for summers and these are a great addition. 

I know it is a bold color for pants and it may seem like you don’t have many options to wear it with. An easy way is to wear it with basics like black or white or gray top. In this post, I have styled these yellow pants two ways – bohemian v. casual chic. It is very easy to create a bohemian look with palazzo pants and here I have paired it with a red off-shoulder top and a headscarf.

For the second look, I went with a collared striped top and matching yellow shoes, both from Zara. This bright red pouch is the perfect accessory for both looks and it carries my essentials like phone, wallet, and keys. It is currently on sale for less than $20.

    great post! I know this is supposed to be about the yellow pants – which are cool – but I LOVE your headscarf the most!

  • christopher mitchell

    Wicked stuff, it’s not a colour I think of as being really bold, but it comes across nicely.

  • Erin Creeks

    I love both of these outfits but I especially love the yellow bottoms. I like uncommon bright colors on bottom versus black or even blue, but I haven’t seen too much yellow. Truly fabulous looks.

  • Each of these outfits go so well together! You look amazing =o)

  • Elizabeth Brico

    Oi! I read on another blog a while back that mustard yellow was going to be in style this season. It looks like it’s true! 🙁 I am not a fan. I like the style of your pants though! And I have to say that you personally managed to pull off a color I despise pretty well, IMP 😛

    • haha, I used to refrain from all shades of yellow thinking it won’t look good on me. But now I love it.

  • I love how you styled these. They look completely different too!

  • These look fantastic. Not a colour I would have usually chosen but now that I see the ways you combine the colours, I would definitely buy these!

  • Shannon Burlingame

    These look great! I love how wide legged they are; they almost look like a skirt! 🙂

  • Melissa Chee

    You rock those outfit! So unique

  • Very cute looks, both! I’m a big fan of those round reflective sunglasses. Lovely styling ideas here. 🙂
