Even though you may still be in the Winter doldrums, there's no reason to dress like it. One of the easiest ways to fight the cold-weather blues is to give your cozy ensembles a dose of high-octane color — and yellow is a shade that not only looks great on nearly everybody, but has the power to transform an otherwise ho-hum look in a snap. We've rounded up a handful of chic celebs that have mastered the art of wearing bright yellow without being too over-the-top, including the latest, Beyoncé in yellow Yves Saint Laurent pumps. Lily Aldridge's colorful top and Miranda Kerr's bold blazer are also in store when you click through to cull some inspiration for incorporating bright pops of the statement-making hue into your Winter wardrobe.
Florals are getting a modern revamp this season thanks to designers like Chanel, Chloé, and Dries van Noten, showcasing ultratextured renditions on their Spring '13 runways. Whether printed or embellished on tops, dresses, skirts, or trousers, we love how these new details add an extraluxe touch to just about any look. Try wearing a pair of dimensional printed floral trousers with sleek boots and a leather jacket for a new approach to cold-weather dressing; and come warmer weather, sport a pair of embellished floral trousers with an effortless silk tank and sandals. Any way you wear it, just remember to let your floral piece take the center of attention by pairing it with streamlined accompaniments. Like what you see?

Spring's new batch of stripes have been refreshed in a big way, and we're jumping on the trend — as seen on the runways of Dolce & Gabbana, Moschino, and Jonathan Saunders — right now. Like Moda Operandi's Taylor Tomasi Hill so skillfully styled them below, bold-stripe pants are the ideal way to make an instant fashion statement. We love how she paired her dark green striped trousers with a casual sweater and a button-down blouse for a look that's stunning yet still effortless. The bonus? While you might think that it's hard to wear such a loud print on the bottom, the effect is actually really flattering and elongates your legs. Just make sure to find a pair in the right silhouette for your figure. Inspired? Shop the best pairs of bold-stripe pants, courtesy of our editors' picks below.

Let's be real — it's frigid outside, so the last thing you want to do is throw on anything colorful or neon. But this season, we promised ourselves we'd fight the urge to wear all black during Winter. While it's cold outside, mix in these bright pieces with neutrals and dark hues, and come Spring and Summer, embrace the vivid hues to their fullest potential. Inside you'll find everything from a gorgeous colorblocked bag to an amazing cobalt maxi dress to a fabulous green blazer. But that's not all; step inside to discover even more major eye-catching color candy.
We might be in a recession, but that's not stopping fashion girls from spending big bucks on the latest craze — Phillip Lim's leather overalls. Ringing in at a cool $1,400 (and practically sold out everywhere online and in stores), — see a more detailed look here — Lim's luxe ode to the '90s is a surefire way to inject a refreshing tilt to your cold weather look. We've been seeing overalls popping up more and more as of late, but the Fab team is torn on whether this leather rendition is taking it too far. While some of us would wear Lim's decadent rendition in a fashion heartbeat, others are just not into this burgeoning throwback trend. That said, we need your help deciding: if money weren't an issue, would you sport Phillip Lim's superluxe leather overalls?

The bevy of sparkles, shimmer, and beautiful embroidery have proven embellishments as a strong, ongoing trend this award season. At last night's Golden Globes, the A-list celebrities continued to dazzle in an array of gorgeous gowns — from Jennifer Garner's superglamorous burgundy strapless, sequined Vivienne Westwood creation to Jennifer Lopez's formfitting lace Zuhair Murad confection, there was no shortage of shine on the Golden Globes red carpet. Click through to see every single stunning look now.
We've barely begun to process all the great gowns we saw on the red carpet tonight, but there's one thing we know for sure — it wasn't just about vibrant reds and bold blues. There were multiple stars, like Kate Hudson, Salma Hayek, and Eva Longoria, who made the decision to go more classic with their Golden Globes looks — but when we say "classic," we don't mean boring. Some of our favorite style setters opted for black dresses this evening and were able to hold our attention just as well as those ultrabright looks. We've rounded up all of the sleek, sophisticated black ensembles that hit the Golden Globes tonight; click through to see them all now, and let us know who had your favorite one.
The saying "paint the town red" certainly applied to the Golden Globes red carpet, where the sultry color made a strong resurgence on Hollywood's A-list set. And just like you might expect, these gowns are the kind that appeal to a sexy, classic, and statement-making sensibility. From Claire Dane's cherry-red Versace gown and Jennifer Lawrence's strapless Dior Couture creation (we're still in awe) to Miranda Kerr's berry-hued Zuhair Murad dress and Jennifer Garner's sparkling Vivienne Westwood couture number, you'd have to agree: the common denominator here is siren dressing. The color red — and its equally gorgeous sister shades of burgundy and deep plum — denotes passion, fire, attitude, and general hotness, and you've got to be seriously confident to work that hue with the matching fierceness it deserves. That's why this trend stands out and why each of these starlets deserve some red-carpet recognition. Herein find the red-hot red-carpet red-dress trend in full.
Some of tonight's biggest stars hit the red carpet in gowns that sported long sleeves — and not just because it's cold outside. Yes, it's even cold in LA right now. We're talking about a new crop of dresses, all of which sported lace embroidery, bold seamwork, brilliant embellishment, and, of course, long sleeves. Just because these stars were sporting less skin doesn't mean their gowns — or their looks — lacked sex appeal. These sleeves made way for sexy cutouts, sheer panels, and sparkling sequin details, proving in spades that the sleeved look was not a boring one. From Naomi Watts in a sophisticated Zac Posen dress to Jennifer Lopez in a barely there Zuhair Murad gown, we've got our eye on long-sleeved gowns this award season.
