Butter Yellow Isn't Going Anywhere For Spring 2024 - Our Favorite Ways To Wear It

Spring 2024 fashion trends are experiencing a refreshing upgrade from last year's bold color fixation and ushering in an era of butter-yellow neutrals. This season follows fall 2023's beige-yellow trend and carries it forward with a light, airy touch-up just in time for sunny spring weather. This year's fashion trends step away from bright shades and classic neutrals by toning down harsher yellows into soft, butter-rich hues that will dominate this season's color palette.

What's more, the shift toward colorful pieces satisfies both ends of the fashion girlie spectrum. It appeals to neutral fans and lovers of loud color by transforming this pale shade of yellow into an unconventional neutral that's gentle on the eyes yet commands attention. Moreover, this specific hue leans toward the beige-ecru side of the color wheel, so it stays true to the healing theme of Pantone's color of the year, peach fuzz, a subtle peach-orange. Follow these spring-ready fashion tips to help style delicate yellow pieces to perfection.

Layer on a butter-yellow blazer

Blazers make the perfect transition piece from winter to spring. This season, reach for a blazer with an oversized fit, as oversized pieces are one of 2024's biggest trends. Or, better yet, opt for a compact co-ord, another spring 2024 trend that overlaps nicely and modernizes the classic co-ord look when combined with an oversized element.

Sweep into spring with pale yellow dresses

A comprehensive spring wardrobe isn't complete without a flowy maxi or midi dress. Take advantage of warm weather by styling a pastel yellow dress with boots or strappy heels. Or, dress in a timeless satin slip, as '90s basics are very much in style in 2024. Similarly, adopt a keen eye while browsing the racks to hunt for unlikely textures and designs, including fur detailing, geometric patterns, and modern necklines.

Yellow-beige outerwear is now an outfit staple

It's possible to follow trends without looking basic — if you select the right piece. For example, the best way to justify a trend-specific purchase this season is to search for a beige-yellow overcoat, such as a trenchcoat or car coat. Wearing this delicious yellow shade, which teeters on the edge of beige, allows you to get away with wearing an uncommon color that works with an array of outfits. This way, you adhere to spring fashion guidelines and make the most of your purchase.

Butter-rich handbags and jewelry galore

Enhance your spring outfit ensembles with dainty yellow accessories that look delicious enough to eat. Consider lemony handbags, yellow gold ring stacks, and gemstone jewelry for accessory inspiration. Adding a pop of color to a neutral-toned outfit will give it a fresh, renewed look for springtime, so trade your go-to pumps for vintage yellow slingbacks for your next dinner date.

Buttery skirts that scream 'quiet luxury'

A-line or column skirts are understated garments to add to your spring wardrobe. For instance, a buttery skirt and pointed black booties make a sophisticated outfit combination that pairs perfectly to form a cute spring 'fit. Style a dusty yellow satin skirt with a knitted cardigan for brunch with the girls, or pull on a boxy cropped top and blazer for an office-ready look.
