I have been transfixed by the color yellow. Seriously. It's not hard to see how it happened. Yellow has been such a hit color for the past few seasons, you pretty much have to be living under a rock to have not noticed that stores everywhere have slowly been filling with clothing in all shades of yellow. At first, I was skeptical. The lemon yellows that started showing up a couple Spring collections ago were a little too bright and cheery for me. But, as time passed, I fell in love with the sunshine color.

The new yellows are the best crop yet. In stores now are gorgeous golds and mustards, along with amazing acid yellow accessories that look just '80s enough when paired with basic black. I recently snagged a nouveau-classic Botkier Trigger handbag in yellow, which I adore, and now I'm ready to move on to a more serious yellow commitment. Like this new Nanette Lepore jacket.

The Nanette Lepore "If You Leave" Jacket is crafted from a felted wool blend and features asymmetrical ruffle detail and a nearly sculptural fit thanks to curved seams. But, the best part is the color-- rich gold that feels nearly neutral given the current yellow love-fest among American designers.
