Summer Trend: How to Wear Yellow

This season is all about the brights, whether they're in modish '60s dresses or swingy '70s-style maxi dresses. And the biggest of all the brights is yellow. In your face, eat sunshine yellow. Yellow that under normal circumstances should either warn you of a blind curve or a terror alert. (Pretty much the exact color Cat painted her room when she was a kid; Cat loves yellow even though it looks somewhere near atrocious on her.)

This color is awful on pretty much anyone who isn't either black or a fake blonde with a fake tan. So how do you make it work? Accessorize!
