Latest Spring & Summer Outfit Ideas
Being that yellow symbolizes things like sunshine, happiness and energy, it should come as no surprise that buttercup (a variation of yellow) is one of fashion’s feature colors this spring and summer seasons.
So, if you don’t already have a bit of yellow—umm, buttercup—in your wardrobe and you’re honestly not quite sure if you want to incorporate it (or how), we’re pretty sure that you’ll find a perfect look to brighten up your wardrobe and style after checking some of these looks out.
1. Buttercup dress with violet accessories
Whether you’re planning on going to a wedding or you’re looking for a way to brighten up your office atmosphere, a buttercup dress is a perfect look for both occasions. Something that you can do to keep from looking too youthful is to offset the dress with accessories of a deeper hue—like the royalty and regal look of violet.
2. Buttercup strapless eyelet top and jeans
Is your boyfriend the kind of person who calls you up out of the blue to go on picnics or walks throughout the city? You’ll be absolutely adorable in a strapless buttercup top like this! And what if the weather is on the mild side of things? No problem. Just bring along a cardigan. What we really like here is the plaid bag and…did you also notice the floral headband? Again, simply adorable.
3. Buttercup peasant top and jeans
If you’ve gained a bit of weight around the waist or perhaps you’re even expecting, here’s a comfortable outfit that’s still pretty appealing.

And if heels are the last thing that you want to put on your feet…some low-top buttercup will do just fine!
4. Buttercup skinny jeans, white top and jean jacket
Ah, the skinny jeans. Although there are a lot of people who will be wearing flare ones, no doubt, that doesn’t mean that you should give your skinny jeans away.

With a white top and a fabulous printed bag that has buttercup in it, you’ll look so good on Casual Fridays!

A neutral or even a blue or pink will be a nice touch.
6. Buttercup shirt dress and navy accessories
This is one of our favorite looks out of the bunch and it’s for two reasons. One is because we love how amazing the navy looks with buttercup. Secondly, if you want to be a hint of sexy without being too over in the process, a silk shirt dress will give you just what you are looking for.
