Zara yellow coat – 70s twist

Zara yellow coat – 70s twist

Hi everyone, so I wrote about a lovely yellow coat I bought from Zara, and the challenge was to show how versatile I believe yellow can be. Now before I go any further I described the colour of the coat as yellow. My friend insists that its ‘mustard’ another friend says its ‘Canary’ yellow. Now I’m confused, what kind of yellow is this coat please?

Give your suggestions below, please help me clarify this because all the ‘yellows’ on google images look the same. Lol

Right, now to revamp this coat I drew inspiration from this seasons hottest trend, the 70s.
So think suede, velvets, plaid, big glasses and corduroys. However no one wants to look like they’re wearing fancy dress, as much as I appreciate the comedic genius of Austin Powers, I won’t be using him as a style muse. The trick is to mix and match, less is more. Here’s my take on it..

    I’m not sure that it’s mustard in colour though…. More canary yellow to me!

      ..I think so too Maria. Mustard for me is more on the ochre side of things slightly on the tan side.

      In fact it’s more ‘African Banana Yellow’ than mustard.. ????????

  • How about….”African Banana Yellow” Loving the look!

      ???????? ‘African Banana Yellow’ I think you’ve created something there Skee Baba. If ‘African Banana Yellow’ was a real colour i think it would be slightly on the orange side, it would have golden highlights in it ..Ooou YES I like it!! ????????????
