For Celebrities, It's All About the Pop of Color This Spring

If someone asked us to name all of the many reasons we love spring, we couldn’t even list them if we tried, simply because there are so many things to love: beautiful blooms; gorgeous weather; flawless floral prints; doses of bright, bold color in our wardrobes. After all, spring style is the best thing about the season, right?

And we’re not the only ones who love playful floral patterns and pretty, pastel shades. Celebrities love them, too (we’re looking at you, Jennifer Connelly, in your to-die-for, mint green Giambattista Valli mini). But not every big style star is ready to jump headfirst into spring’s splash of color. Instead, some stars are taking a more subtle approach to spring shades, opting for just a pop of color here and there in a way that still makes a maximum impact.

Game of Thrones actress Nathalie Emmanuel was just one of many stars to kick off the spring season with a bold splash of color, showing up to the HBO series’ season four premiere in New York City wearing a stunning Georges Chakra Couture jumpsuit. But it wasn’t the sexy sheer paneling, gorgeous hair and makeup, or perfect fit that caught our eye; it was the color-soaked orange lining on the jumpsuit’s cape that gave it a dramatic and totally-spring-ready effect.

Just a few days later, Mad Men actress Jessica Paré followed suit with the same shade of brilliant orange when she donned a strapless Roksanda Ilincic gown featuring a brightly lined fold along the side. And Paré wasn’t the only star who loved this design, as actress Anne Hathaway sported a similar dress from the same designer, though her version featured a pop of bright red against a cobalt blue background.

But colorful linings aren’t the only way celebs have managed to incorporate small doses of color into their spring looks. Masters of Sex actress Lizzy Caplan showed up to PaleyFest 2014 on Monday wearing a chic, all-white, lacy number, which she punctuated with just the right amount of color with her bright red, suede pumps.

We can think of nearly a million more ways to incorporate splashes of spring color into our seasonal wardrobe — whether it’s with a bright pink clutch against a neutral dress or a color-lined jacket over an all-black ensemble — and we’re almost certain our favorite style stars will keep the inspiration coming on the red carpet and beyond.
