For years yellow was the only color on our list of "Things We Will Never Wear" (things like bows, Tevas, and Pucci prints). But lately we've warmed up to the usually daunting color in a big way. This season it looks like designers have too. Everyone from Valentino to Comme Des Garcons showed looks en jaune, in hues ranging from daffodil to traffic light. We like yellow because it makes pretty clothes look a little less obviously pretty; the ruffled dress Natalia wore at Valentino would have looked saccharine in pink, but in yellow it was just right. We also appreciate the way it pops against our favorite neutral, gray. Even though the color has lots of runway presence this year, we're unsure if it will make the jump to most women's wardrobes. Matching yellow to your skin tone can be tough; Chanel Iman looked gorgeous in a bumblebee shade at Giambattista Valli, but Sasha looked washed out at the same show in the same color. Will you be matching the daffodils for spring? Or will you leave this color in the Crayola box? --ANNA FIELDING GRIGGS
