Why Mustard Is My Go-To Color in the Fall

Fall is by far my favorite season. Something about the crisp air, colorful trees, and having a holiday around every corner seems to keep my spirits high.

You know what else is one of my favorite things about fall? Mustard. Now, I’m not talking about the kind that you put on your hotdog (though I love that, too). I’m talking about the color mustard yellow. Most people would prefer to reach for browns, reds, deep greens, or anything dark or neutral in the fall, but for some reason I am drawn to this particular shade of yellow. It’s not obnoxiously bright, but it adds a dramatic pop of color that is very season-appropriate.

I picked up this lovely little number from Red Dress Boutique last week and immediately fell in love. Not only is it the perfect shade of yellow, but it has fascinating details like zippers, buttons, buckles, and pockets to really add interest. The fit is very relaxed which makes it comfortable and easy to move around in. The faux suede material is very soft and features a black and white pattern on the lining. Though it is lightweight, it is surprisingly warm for milder fall weather.

Since I wanted the jacket to be the star of the show, I went black and white with the rest of my outfit. The black over-the-knee Steve Madden boots are also suede, so that way they tie back in to the jacket. I chose black skinnies from Banana Republic because I wanted the look to be a little more sophisticated, and paired them with this adorable white top from LC Lauren Conrad.

I’m not sure what sparked my interest in mustard yellow, but it has become a staple in my fall wardrobe the past few years. Now I’m carrying on tradition by adding this knockout mustard piece to my closet, and I couldn’t be happier about it.
