The cardigan has existed as a fashion staple for decades. But the mustard-colored cardigan has become a new twist on an old classic. One of the great things that women like about cardigans is that they can dress them with many different types of outfits. Someone can easily wear a mustard cardigan to dress casually, go for an evening out with her partner, or pair it with a dress and boots to take a shopping trip with friends. The fashion possibilities can get creative if one lets her mind go to the outer limits of chic, modern-day fashion.
Mustard operates as a hot color. Therefore, the wearer will need to cool off the effect with ivory- and beige-colored items. A great color that will go with a mustard-colored cardigan is navy. A woman can wear a long navy dress that is suitable for the fall weather and pair it with a large black tote for a chic, downtown look. Mustard cardigans also can provide a great color-blocking effect in outfits. Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham did this to wonderful effect by pairing mustard with black while employing details in burgundy. If someone is a truly daring fashionista, she can experiment with color-blocking using shades of green, yellow, and pink.
Right now, a mustard-colored cardigan acts as a hot commodity in the world of fashion. Plenty of Hollywood celebrities have been spotted in these trendsetting sweaters. They include "Pretty Little Liars" star Shay Mitchell, actor Vanessa Hudgens, singer and songwriter Taylor Swift, and Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge.
Autumn is a great time to wear these colorful sweaters, although they are versatile enough to be worn year round. When wearing these cardigans in the fall, they go well with other colors of the season, such as brown, yellow, and orange. But the experimenting doesn’t have to end with an autumnal color palette. From pink to green, it is possible to mix many different looks with a mustard cardigan. The looks the wearer comes up with is up to her imagination.
