Since I’m on a roll with colored clothing (green, black/white), to keep in the realm of the gorgeous seasons of spring and summer, let’s highlight yellow clothing!
With the weather warming, plants growing and sun shining, now is the time to put away  your black and gray winter wardrobe and dress in lighter, brighter, bolder colors. What better color to warm your heart and uplift your mood than the beautiful color yellow?
Yellow  is the color between green and orange on the spectrum of visible light. Yellow is evoked by light with a predominant wavelength of roughly 570-590 nm. In traditional color theory used in painting, and in the subtractive color system used in color printing, yellow is a primary color! The color yellow relates to acquired knowledge, resonates with the left or logic side of the brain that stimulates mental faculties and creates mental agility and perception.

Yellow Fun Fact: The word yellow comes from the Old English ‘geolu’, meaning yellow or yellowish. It has the same Indo-European base, ‘gel’ as the word gold and yell, or cry-out.
Let’s give a cry-out and shout-out for the glorious color yellow; always in fabulous fashion no doubt!
Yellow is the lightest hue of the color spectrum, emitting uplifting and illuminating feelings, offering hope, cheerfulness and fun.
Walk, no run, to your nearest clothing store and fill your closet with yellow clothing for having fun in the mid-day sun!

Yellow Fun Fact: According to surveys in Europe, Canada and the United States, yellow is the color people most often associate with amusement, gentleness and spontaneity. The color yellow plays an important role in China, where it is seen as the color of happiness, glory, wisdom, harmony and culture.
Yellow, in the form of yellow ochre pigment made from clay, was one of the first colors used in prehistoric cave art. The cave of Lascaux has an image of a horse colored with yellow, estimated to be 17,300 years old.
When dressed in the color yellow, look magnificent, majestic and bold…never old! Even in yellowish shades of gold!

Yellow Fun Fact: Yellow is the most highly visible of all colors, which is why yellow is used for pedestrian crossings, firetrucks, road maintenance equipment, school buses and taxicabs. Yellow is often used for safety and accident prevention information, and for warning signs, since the color yellow is traditionally used to signal caution, rather than danger (Slow down as opposed to Stop)! Take note of crossings which are marked in white – they are less easy to see than those marked in yellow, particularly on wet and cloudy days.
Slow down and smell the yellow flowers – flower power! By the way, yellow is the number one color of all fresh flowers in the world.
Dress in glorious shades of yellow to wipe the rain and clouds away and bring back a sun-filled day!

Yeah for yellow clothes – as every fashion diva knows!
Complementary Colors Fun Fact: Traditionally, the complementary color of yellow is violet; the two colors are opposite each other on the color wheel long used by painters. Vincent Van Gogh, an avid student of color theory, used combinations of yellow and violet in several paintings for the maximum contrast and harmony. This validates the  phrase, “Opposites attract!” Think “The Starry Night!”

Remember the Golden Rule: Yellow dresses, yellow shorts, yellow skirts, yellow pantsuits, yellow fingernails, yellow lipstick, yellow purses and yellow shoes are sometimes the only festive color of clothing items and accessories that will do!

“Thank you, fashion judge. I almost passed up yellow and dressed myself in green.”
“The yellow pencil skirt and gold silk blouse are pleasing to the eye.”
“With my yellow 6 inch stilettos I almost touch the sky.”
“You sure turned my head, and everyone else’s, when you strutted on by.”
“I suggest dressing in yellow. Come on, you’ll be thrilled you gave it a try!”
