Sunny and warm, yellow is a bright, life-breathing addition to a stylish wardrobe. Even if you’re a fan of neutral dressing or have a signature color, introduce a yellow blouse into your repertoire of separates. You’ll find adding a little yellow sunshine is a sure-fire way to energize an everyday look.

1 Bold Meets Bright

A sleek yellow blouse is a great foundation for a color-blocked outfit. Team your vivid top with a solid skirt or pair of skinny jeans in another vibrant hue -- think turquoise, cobalt or royal purple. For instance, wear teal denim shorts with a sleeveless button-down blouse for a cool summer look; add an armful of coordinating bangles, a neutral belt and metallic T-strap sandals to complete the cute and casual vibe.

2 Neutral Nuances

Let your bright blouse take center stage by wearing it with a neutral. Everything from white and cream to gray and black pair well with vivid yellow, as do navy and medium- and dark-wash denim. Rock white skinny jeans with a yellow peasant blouse for a fresh, airy look; add chunky gold and wood jewelry pieces and slip into strappy nude heels or gladiator sandals. Dress up a bit in a black or gray pencil skirt and a tailored, tie-front yellow blouse for a job interview or more formal occasion. Wear black pumps or ankle booties and simple metallic stud earrings to finish the polished look.
