silver hair: is wearing yellow bad?

Does yellow look good with gray hair?

If you have gray, silver, or platinum hair, you’ve probably heard that wearing yellow is not the best for your hair color.  I tend to disagree.

First off, wearing a color suited to work with just your hair — and not considering your skin tone and eye color(s) — is wrong.

Secondly, not all yellows are bad.  Myth dispelled? Well, you decide.  I’ve adjusted the yellow sweater the woman is wearing to come up with a

(A) bright/saturated version,

(B) toned down version,

(C) tinted version and

(D) one that is a little muted and lightened.

Some work and some don’t. Which one(s) do you like?

There is no right or wrong answer…I’m curious to know what you think!
