Gen-Z Yellow is having quite the moment. Over the past year, the fresh hue has been spotted everywhere from the runways to street style galleries, and fashion’s love for the color doesn’t seem to be dying down. While some have chosen to go head to toe in the color, others, like myself, may be reluctant to take this bold leap.
One effortless way to inject your closet with this color trend? Adding a bright yellow cardigan to your outfit mix. If you’re a minimalist at heart, you’ll want to select an option with clean lines and layer it over a look made up of straightforward basics. Think an all-black or all-white monochrome base consisting of a classic tee or button-down shirt with matching trousers.
Conversely, if you’re a maximalist, we recommend opting for a bright yellow cardigan with an interesting detail like voluminous sleeves or textured fabric. Since you’re not afraid of color, go all out, pairing the sweater with stripes or florals and other colorful pieces. Try a statement yellow cardigan over a standout floral printed dress for maximum effect.
If your style preference falls somewhere in the middle, don’t fret: Just add a white T-shirt and your favorite jeans. Complete the look with ankle boots or white sneakers and you have an outfit that’s weekend-ready and flattering on every body type. Without further ado, keep scrolling to shop our roundup of the best bright yellow cardigans on the internet.
