The red carpet doesn’t typically translate easily into real life—floor-length ball gowns, millions of dollars worth of diamonds, and head-to-toe sequins just aren’t realistic outfit choices for everyday (or, ever, if you’re not a celebrity). But this year’s Golden Globes brought an eye-catching new trend that not only works in the real world, but also on any skin tone, and any body.
Reese Witherspoon, Viola Davis, and (a very pregnant) Natalie Portman all walked the red carpet in a striking shade of yellow—proving that the bold hue isn’t as difficult to pull off as you might think. Plus, the cheery pop of color is the perfect answer to dreary winter days. Give the trend a test drive with these stylish, wearable picks and easy pointers on how to work them into your wardrobe.
