    Default Michael Kors - cutting the mustard

    Cutting The Mustard

    WITH warm mustard tones back on the agenda for autumn/winter 2008-9, Michael Kors has done some snooping in the pantry to work out which shades work best for key pieces.
    "Gold, honey, mustard - you can do these colours in lightweight fabrics, so it's a head start on fall without the bulk," he says. "I think mustard has an automatic warmth to it. A lot of the trick of modern fashion is seasonless clothes. No one wants to wear heavy clothes, even in the fall."
    Something like sun-dried tomato mustard, which is more of a burnt orange with flecks of yellow and brown, is a good bet for your investment pieces, for example.
    "You're going to see a lot of melding of all these colours, especially a glen plaid or a check," Kors confirms. "They work like the solid that's not a solid. A good investment piece isn't always black pants or a white dress."
    By the same token, he advises steering away from any shade that is too yellow - and instead wearing bright mustard in textured fabrics to accent other tones.
    "I think it's good in small doses, but I don't think you want to invest in a coat of this colour," he tells The Associated Press.

    And I'll have Michael Kors know that mustard yellow looks like baby diarrhea on me.

    It is definitely not my color either. I bought a red military style pea coat on sale last year at the factory outlet that looks great.

    A black and white BCBG tunic would fit nicely with it too.

    yeah, mustard rarely looks good on anyone with yellow undertones in their skin. you need just the right colouring to pull it off, otherwise it can make people look ill.

    i usually think michael kors' clothes are generic and overrated anyway.

    That's in Seattle is it? I keep seeing the Tulalip Casino commercial on TV. I should go check out all the outlets in WA, only a couple of hours away from VanQ.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    Ah! That must be why then - I had an Ungaro mustard-coloured* Suit when I was 17, and loved it. Rec'd loads of compliments too - but I'm a pink not yellow undertone person...

    I think that mustard can come in different shades tho (warm/cold)... *it wasn't the "mustard" in the photo either - that looks more lime green to me Yuck!

    I always thought that MK was ok for work...

    I have pink undertones and can't wear yellows, most greens and oranges. I end up turning those colors.

    You should do that mooms. I hear you can find good deals on makeup there, too.
