While a wide range of yellow shades — from freshly churned butter to neon lemon — walked the Spring 2018 runways, a very specific iteration of the sunny hue covered the streets of Paris on Wednesday: mustard yellow. Showgoers wore the golden-meets-butterscotch color from head-to-toe proving that leather boots, puffer jackets, plaid skirts and retro corduroy sets look better when dipped in dijon.
Though less flashy than classic yellow, mustard adds a punch of color to any outfit, making it a more exciting alternative to neutral tones that tend to dictate our fall wardrobes. And as demonstrated in the picture above, mustard yellow works on a range of cold-weather staples, including oversized blazers, statement toppers, turtlenecks and long skirts. It can also be used to shade a plethora of beloved autumn trends, from preppy Cher Horowitz-worthy plaids to '70s-style suits. So if we're taking cues from the French street style pack, we should start stocking up our closets with the condiment-inspired color now.
