Either return it or donate it. But if you really must, light grey or light blue should work. But this is just awful.

No shirt is doable. All my attention would be on your shorts if I see you out and about. You need something stronger like red. /jk

Test dark navy and see if it works.

White, black, navy, grey will all work

Light blue or some kind of pattern will work if you wear it with confidence. I'm sure if you google you could get some ideas

Thanks for all the suggestions. Please keep them coming. I might consider wearing it if I get enough idea. Looks like Fjällräven is a name brand.

Wow, just wow... Out of all the colours they could've got, they got you yellow. That colour must have been on clearance or something lol.
There's a picture of these shorts with a navy t-shirt which looks somewhat ok, but even then...

Unless you already look like Rodney Dangerfield, I'd forgo the shorts altogether and get a proper shorts and top combo.

Try on a bunch of different clothing colours and decide for urself if u like any colour combos. What might look good on an image search on the internet might not translate the same for u or ur comfort level. Generally to tone down bright colours, u pair it with a neutral.

Topless, marker in a white tank top.

You can always go shopping with your yellow short and try all sort of colour and see which one you like best.

The yellow shorts will look great over speedo. Wear it to the swimming pool and then strip down to your speedo or swimming boxers.

What's with the hate? I'm sure it can be made to work. How about paring it with some kind of patterned collared button shirt (longer bottom to cover more of the yellow).
