Call it acid yellow, call it chartreuse; it’s a color that POPS and heats up any summer wardrobe.

The Spring 2010 runways had a lot of it: acid yellow trousers, dresses, tops, scarves, nail polish and accessories. But looking back over the past few years, acid yellow has been around for quite some time, but in more subtle ways. It is not the easiest color to match (your skin tone or your wardrobe) but I love to see bursts of it in an accessory, like a strap on a show or a lining to a coat. Do you do acid yellow? Chartreuse? HOW do you do it?

    I sewing a pair of boy shorts with acid yellow & pink follows. Post to follow soon. I love the color yellow. It works great with my chocolate skin.

    I would need a wicked tan to pull this color off. Natasha does it well in the middle of the bottom row. I like the yellow shades rather than the green shades. Maybe as a nailpolish.
