Calling all sun worshippers! This season is bursting with yellow fashion essentials in delicious shades of banana, lemon, and honey — and we’re shining a light on summer’s hottest hue.

7 Yellow Fashion Essentials That are Good as Gold

1. A Lightweight Sweater

J.Crew Factory Cotton Caryn Cardigan Sweater, $34.99

Sure, it’s summer — but that doesn’t mean you can’t keep a lightweight sweater on hand for cool nights (or frigid office air conditioning). This button-up cardigan is the perfect topper for sundresses now and fall separates later.

2. Statement Pumps

Sole Society Jenn D’Orsay Pump, $55.97

A woman can never have too many shoes; so don’t limit yourself to ballet flats and pumps in neutral shades. These sunny high heels are surprisingly versatile, and they add a gorgeous pop of color to black and white stripes and chambray blues.

3. A Bright Bodysuit

New York & Company Eva Mendes Collection Mila Bodysuit, $46.95

Bodysuits are perfect for multi-seasonal styling, because they keep you cool during heatwaves and help you layer without bulk in colder temperatures. This flattering v-neck design drapes beautifully across the décolletage and looks just as good with a summertime midi skirt as it does with a business suit.

4. A Tassel Necklace

Not ready to dress yourself in yellow from head to toe? Try a statement necklace instead. This gold necktie commands attention with its metal chain trim and fluffy cotton tassels — and it’s a not-so-subtle way to work boho into your regular rotation.

5. A Crossbody Bag
