Favorite Fall Color – How to Wear Mustard

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.

Happy Tuesday.  This weekend I was smiling to myself thinking about all the hats I wear on a daily basis.  I just just came back from a killer barre class, threw some sheets in the wash and sat down to grade some papers of the students in my class that just started for the Fall.  I then wrote out my plan for the week for posts including this one about my new color love for the Fall. These pictures are totally glam and were a nice change from my usual barre pants and hair on top of my hair nights.  From grading papers to shooting high end fashion shots, I definitely try to keep things interesting around here.  Today, I want to chat with you about my new favorite Fall color and how to wear and style this trend.

Favorite Fall Color : How to Wear Mustard

I used to always shy away from all shades of the yellow family being a blonde.  I didn’t think it was a flattering color on me and I couldn’t figure out how to style it.  Once I bought this piece, I started gravitating towards this color more in all my Fall shopping lists.  How to style the color mustard with you ask?  Think of it as a neutral and add some bold colors like magenta or teal with it.

  1. I own one yellow thing in my entire closet. I’m not really much of a yellow person. Although the darker mustard color is pretty. I bought that Chloe K lace tank in white and I am obsessed with it!

    Mustard is a tricky tricky color, but you pull it of flawless [ i mean was there any doubt?]. I have a few yellow/mustard pieces in my closet but usually stick to other shades of the rainbow. Love your accent picks!

  3. Lindsay says:

    Um, major babe! This pictures are GORGEOUS! I love mustard because it is so close to gold which is my FAV! These are beautiful options, hoping to add some mustard to my closet this season.

  4. That dress is killer on you!! Really pretty! I’m a huge fan of mustard and have a few cardigans that are that same color, but I’m always trying to incorporate more! Really love it with a splash of the color in a scarf!! xo, biana –BlovedBoston

  5. Cory says:

    Okay seriously – that dress and your hair – you look fab!!!
    I love mustard. I bought my first piece (a cardigan) last year and absolutely FELL IN LOVE. I need to expand my wardrobe with more of that color this year! :)

  6. Jenn says:

    Mustard is a great color when done correctly, but it is difficult sometimes. I have some tops that are this color and I love wearing them–I just don’t wear them a ton because it’s hard to make them super versatile.

  7. Nichole says:

    Heyyyy girl, hey! Very glam. I actually really like mustard for a Fall color.

  8. Ashley says:

    I don’t think I have a single yellow item in my wardrobe for the exact reason you mentioned — yellow and blondes are a hard mix. This deeper mustard color looks beautiful on you! I love a good plunging neckline and this one nails it!

  9. Ashley says:

    gorgeous pics!! I don’t own a single yellow/mustard item but I’m thinking of trying to start with a couple of accesories for now – maybe -a scarf or flats!

  10. I’ve always loved a pop of yellow, and this mustard shade is perfect for fall! This dress is gorgeous on you, and I’m obsessed with those heels – so pretty <3

  11. Kelly K says:

    I absolutely LOVE wearing mustard! Last year it was one of my go-to colors for fall. Love all your fashion picks! Mustard is actually pretty adorable as an eyeshadow too!


  12. I LOVE mustard! I just got the cutest pair of skinny cords in a mustard color and I can’t wait to break them out, come on cool weather!

  13. I don’t think yellow and blondes are a hard of a mix as your skin tone + mustard… You’re a fair pink so the mustard (I find that more of an orange… Am I cray?) looks fab on you! It would look purely horrific on my olive complexion AND blonde hair! I do like bright yellow though, and find that works with my bizarre coloring. It’s such a happy color, I wish people wore more of it!

  14. i actually super love mustard colored accessories. i used to have a mustard hobo that was uber cheap and eventually fell apart but i wore that sucker from fall till spring and loved that it is mostly a neutral and goes with everyyyyything :) current wishlist is the perfect mustard bag and an oxblood one. give me alllll the oxblood too ha. now i’m getting off topic :)

    I agree mustard is never a color a gravitate towards being a blonde but I do love it for fall!

  16. Check you out, Queen Cerse! :P

    I haven’t ventured into mustard. I’m just not really a fan, and I think that’s alright. I do think others look great in it, though!

  17. Sara says:

    Girl, it’s hard to imagine anything that wouldn’t be stunning on you!!! This post totally proves it too! You’re so right though – I definitely don’t think that yellow fits my undertones or my hair… but I also believe that everyone can wear any shade of a color, you just have to find the right one for you!

  18. I used to have this mustard shirt dress when I was in 3rd grade, clearly I was on trend back then. Haha. Anyway!! I like mustard because it’s like gold to me. I think that it’s pretty and you can do a lot with it. Perfect for fall too. You also look gorgeous in all of your pictures, and I LOVE all of the picks in your collage! :-)

  19. I love the mustard color in your picks but i’m just not sure how I would look in full on mustard. I did just buy a dress that had it around the collar. You picks are gorgeous. In the first one, you look like a princess from Game of Thrones.

  20. Carly says:

    These pics are amazing – you look great! I have a couple mustard fall pieces – I think it helps being a brunette, because most of the time I just wear the color with a dark jean.

  21. You look fabulous, lady!! Loving mustard for fall – I’ll take one of everything please! Especially those loafers, adorable!

  22. Courtney B says:

    Girrrrrrrrrrrrl! How stunning are these photos?! You babe! I love them! And you are rocking the mustard! I definitely don’t think mustard is my color between my skin tone and blonde hair, but accents of mustard I can do!

  23. Run DMT says:

    How gorgeous are you? You can totally pull off that color. I’ve never been fan a fan of earth tones, but I do like some of the other pieces you shared, especially that large mustard handbag.

  24. Lindsay says:

    Oh hey hot stuff! Mustard is super flattering on and so much more versatile than straight up yellow. And your hair!!!

  25. Amanda says:

    Um… can we first talk about how FABULOUS you look in these pictures WOW! Love that dress and those heels. I actually like the color mustard and own a few things. I think it’s so versatile and pretty.

  26. Stacy G says:

    Gorgeous! I’ve always loved the color , just not so sure it would work with my skin tone. I’m pretty pale. Love those sandals so much! xo

  27. Missy says:

    You look amazing! Love that dress on you! I always shy away from yellow usually because I’m not only blonde but pasty white too, I’ll have to try again.

  28. Gorgeous!! I could wear it as an accent piece, but I don’t know if I could pull off just mustard!!

  29. Rebecca Jo says:

    I am always addicted to yellow – all shades of it.
    I used to wear a mustard blazer when I was in high school… hello 80’s… & everyone said it was a Century 21 Realtor jacket – I still wore it :) Loved it!

  30. Nadine says:

    Well hello fashion model photos! That color and dress is gorgeous on you!!! As much as I love the yellow family on other people, I do not love it on me. In the last bit. But I love all the other jeweled tones for the fall. Maybe I can get a mustard bag and call it a day!

  31. I have 1 mustard sweater that I love, but it is a tricky color for us fair skinned ladies. I don’t wear a lot of yellow tones as I feel like they wash me out. I like the idea of adding magenta. Great color choice!

  32. Karly says:

    These photos of you are gorgeous, my friend! I don’t own any yellow (that I’m aware of, at least), but you’re right – a deeper hue like mustard will still work for blondes like us.

  33. I like the color mustard too. I actually got some mustard leggings late in the season last year and can’t wait to finally wear them with some boots and a neutral top!

  34. That dress is SO gorgeous! I don’t think I’ve ever worn mustard before. At least I can’t remember it if I have, but now I want to give it a try. I love the idea of wearing it as a scarf. I might have to give that a try!

  35. Danielle says:

    I love to wear yellow pieces. I need to get new ones! Love the dresses and shoes you found!


  36. I’m scared of yellow, but you pull it off beautifully! I do love yellow, such a fun color! Just not sure if it would work with my coloring. You look so glamorous in these pics, love it!

  37. I love mustard-such a gorgeous color for fun! You look amazing in that dress, lady! :)

  38. umm you are on FIRE!! hot pics girl!!! and love mustard- such a great piece for fall!

  39. jessi otey says:

    Look at you! H-O-T! Lovin’ the Fall palette!

  40. kristen says:

    you definitely wear a lot of hats!! i used to shy away from yellow as well, even though i’m not blonde anymore, i didn’t think it went with my skin or anything. but mustard is a different ball game, love it!

  41. I didn’t think I would but I love that mustard yellow color! Great picks!

  42. I don’t own one piece of mustard clothing or accessory but that dress looks amazing on you and I would wear a few of the pieces you picked out too! Some not even that expensive from F21.

  43. Owen Davis says:

    You look like a stunning Greek goddess!!! That plunging neckline is to die for. I love mustard in the summer but it makes me look so washed out in the fall. Your pics are amazing, especially the maxis

  44. Love wearing mustard! These are great ideas, Amanda!

  45. Ummm hello supermodel!!!!! These shots were so unbelievably gorgeous!! Love that color on you! I’ve always been that way about yellows too! Even though yellow is my favorite color! Totally going to try this now!!

  49. Wow, you look awesome in mustard! It’s a color I’ve never dared to try. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll give it a shot this Fall.

  50. Meg Taylor says:

    Mustard and I have never really gone together, but I love that purse and the scarf is definitely something I could see myself in :)

  51. Jenny says:

    Well, you are absolutely gorgeous in it!! I have never been brave enough to wear yellows. I am a blend into the crowd type of gal I feel like yellow screams “hey, look at me” :)

  52. Ashley Moody says:
