Denim Trend: Mustard with Everything

By Ann of Holier than Now

So I didn’t venture into full-on colored denim this season – but now I’m thinking it was only because I couldn’t decide on just one shade!  Now that I’ve become truly obsessed with mustard, and feel pretty strongly that we’ll see it abound for Fall, I’ve finally set my sights on a pair of dirty yellow skinny jeans

But of course I can’t find them!  I’m not sure it matters though, because mustard is one of those tones that works perfectly with the blue denim I already have.  Maybe it’s better to invest in rich yellow pieces that work with a denim jacket or a wide leg denim pant?

If I really get desperate, Rit Dye has a color mixing “menu” with a good mustard tone that looks easy enough to mix up for a dip with a white skinny jean.

If you’re ready to lay the mustard on thick, here are five ways to buy it – or DIY it!

1. Paige Denim Jimmy Jimmy White Skinny Jeans ($125.30 – 30% off) with Rit Dye in Sunshine Orange and Golden Yellow ($3.99 each)

2. ONE by Alexander Berardi Mustard Blouse ($295)

3. Theory Tylie Long Cami Mustard Dress ($262.50 – 30% off)

4. Frye Wendy Mocassin Flats in Mustard ($74.00 – 50% off)

5. Jonathan Adler Countess Tote ($198)

Do you love this color like I do or will you … pass the mustard for Fall?


And P.S. … Have you found any mustard denim?  Please point me in the right direction!

    Love it! I got a pair of mustard-colored wedges this summer and they are much more neutral than I ever expected.
