While some celebs stick to a more neutral color palette (read: beige queen Kim Kardashian), Blake Lively embraces color almost every time she steps foot on the red carpet.

The actress attended the New York premiere of “The Adam Project” wearing a flowing, silk gown that featured swirling layers of pastel. The rainbow stripes criss-crossed at her waist, bringing together a deep V-neckline. And did I mention the up-to-there thigh slit? That, my friends, is how you do color.

Though not quite vintage, Lively got the look from pre-pandemic collections, pulling the gown straight from the runway of Versace’s Spring 2019 Couture show.

It seems fitting that the gown was designed more than three years ago, as it brings an optimism that we haven’t seen in the fashion world since face masks became the norm. That said, many of the latest Fashion Month collections have embraced this sentiment, infusing the technicolor aesthetic into their current designs. The result is more rainbow dresses and bright-colored minis than we’ve seen since January 2020.

As we enter the spring season, Lively’s colorful look is one that you should consider adding to your own wardrobe. Shop the below dresses to liven up your closet (heh).

The ‘90s are alive and well on the beach, too. This mini is for the sand and beyond.

Apparently head-to-toe rainbow can look low-key. Who knew?

There’s nothing quite like the ease of a glitzy night-out dress and this rainbow mini is just that.

Get you a dress that does both: can be a dress or an extra-long cardigan.

If brights are what you’re after, consider this knit T-shirt dress.

For a more subdued take on the trend, opt for an earthier color palette.

A splurge that you’ll actually use. Wear this laid-back look over a swimsuit or with high-waisted briefs and a bralette.
