How To Wear Yellow Without Looking Bananas

As Jonathan Adler says in his book Happy Chic Colors, "One yellow gerber daisy in a bud vase = Prozac for your pad." I feel the same way about wearing yellow — it's my all-time favorite mood-altering med! I even like to work it monochromatically, but pulling off a head-to-toe look in one screaming hue can be tricky.
Here's my #1 tip for wearing bold colors: Ease into it with nail polish. You can begin matching your yellow manicure with an accessory in the same sunny hue, like a necklace or a pair of flats. Before you know it, you'll be edging your way to wearing pale yellow dresses with a purse to match or even with a floppy hat. Click through to see my yellow polish of choice and a few of my favorite cheery items to see how you, too, can conquer this hot summer color.
