Sunday Style - Let the Sun Shine

Hello and welcome to another edition of Sunday Style with the JET Team!

When I was a teenager, I had a fabulous bright yellow jacket. It was long, had a tie belt, and big yellow buttons. It also was the brightest yellow on the planet. I don’t know if it was partially flattering, but it always made me feel good. On a rainy, grey day, it just felt like sunshine and happiness. I think that feeling is why bright yellow is having a moment right now- a very bright shining moment! The dazzling yellow of daffodils and lemons and sunshine is just so happy and optimistic. It’s a bold color, to be sure!

If you are feeling daring, try this adorable and trendy shorts suit (1) from VillageChic. Add cooljewelrydesign's honey yellow bracelet (2) and a pair of yellow and black lampwork earrings (3) from BeadsMe for instant color and style.



Have a little fun with some gladiator style lace up sandals in bright yellow leather (4) from HolyCowproducts, and let YourDailyJewels' silver teardrop necklace with a yellow topaz stone (5) peek out from the neckline of the jacket. You can even paint your nails with Funshine Smoothie (6) from ILoveNP!

This bright sunny yellow may be a little too bright for everyone to wear head to toe. I’d love to see this color used to punch up a Little White Dress (LWD). SisterOrganics makes a lovely LWD (7) out of organic cotton voile and sateen, with a touch of lace at the cuff and hem.



Punch it up with beautiful yellow agate stacking bracelets (8) from NancysCrystalFantasy and fun yellow butterfly wing earrings (9) by DebrasDivineDesigns. Add some whimsical fun with a Kentucky Derby hat (10) from BoringSidney, and some sophistication with an eyelet lace clutch wallet (11) from PeteandPaul.

Bright yellow also looks great with denim, whether it’s your favorite pair of worn-in jeans or something new for the season like this short sleeved scoopneck denim dress (12) from shopwonderland. Wear it with Malves1009’s beaded cross bracelet (13) and GemstonesOnMyMind’s yellow chalcedony necklace (14) for a shot of that warm, sunny color.



For some sunshine by your face, add LoveStoneArtscrystal copper earrings (15). Toss a bucket bag (16) from morelle over your shoulder, and finish the look off with strappy yellow leather sandals (17) from TheMerakiCompany. You're set to go!

See you next week,

Stunning selections for this style feature, Lori! And I think that's why rain slickers are usually yellow... they brighten the day so well :)

Great post, it makes me wish I could wear yellow. I can't because it makes me look green.
