    I would- especially because it’s one of my school colors! Perfect for basketball games, especially on cold nights :)

    I really like #5, the Victoria’s Secret peacoat! It looks adorable — reminds me of a big yellow rain slicker that I had when I was a kid. Great to wear something bright and cheerful like that on a gloomy winter day. :)

    Too funny – I’ve been wearing a bright yellow coat from Old Navy this entire winter season! Anyone ho is looking for me says it’s easy to spot me, because I stand out. All the other women in the city I live in have dark coloured winter jackets. I like that the yellow really sets me apart from everyone else. :-)

    I’ve been wearing a bright yellow duffle coat since I bought it in September. I thought at first it would be hard to match and I’d have to make outfits on purpose to wear it (and did at first) but then I realized, much to my amazement that it goes with everything!

    Uh, yeah I would wear a yellow jacket. I got one similar to the peacoat shown in number 5 about two years ago and absolutely LOVE it. I have always gotten compiments on the bright color!

    I have a vintage inspired mustard-yellow blazer and I am in love with it! I wear it with a flow-y cream-colored blouse and normally a dark pair of Levi’s, and top with riding boots or vintage flats. I love this post :) You should put together some outfits!

    My favorite is number 4. I love a good blazer. Especially, with such bright color. With a yellow one, a pretty black dress would be really cute! ;)
