Ochre, mustard, goldenrod, golden brown, yellow…whatever you call it, the color is having a moment this fall. Black Crane is doing a wonderful golden brown color in lots of styles, as is Simon Miller – who is being quite literal with it, clearly nodding to the 70’s shapes and styles in which colors like mustard, burgundy & cream harken back to.
I actually saw this Simon Miller sweater in person and it’s beautiful – and what got me started thinking about mustard again…along with seeing all the new Black Crane pieces at Garmentory (use my referral link for a $20 account credit). And Eileen Fisher has a nice ‘version’ of mustard (they call it Arnica), which is a bit darker, and slightly more brown.
BUT mustard is a color I have convinced myself I absolutely cannot wear. And I do love the color, interestingly enough, but every time in the past I tried it, I’ve been shocked by how it looks on me; mustard just doesn’t play nice with my skintone. No big deal, really, because I don’t need to wear it, or probably wouldn’t if I’m being realistic, but I do think it’s a color that goes beautifully with black.
What do you think about mustard? Do you wear it? How?
