Here's the thing about winter: It's long, it's dark and it can be depressing as hell. So why do we make it even harder on ourselves by wearing pretty much all black for the entire season?
For proof that breaking out your brights can make everything feel just a little bit better, check out what actress Saoirse Ronan wore to the 29th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival. Sure, it may not be a "real" winter in Palm Springs, where today's forecasted high is a balmy 77 degrees, but we still love the idea of wearing bright pink and electric orange in January. Ronan's Gucci dress is split diagonally across the chest, held together by crystal bows which also continue down one sleeve.
Ronan keeps the sparkle going with silver platforms by the brand, and a pair of orb-like earrings by Fernando Jorge. And in case you don't have a neon-colored Gucci gown at the ready, you can brighten your own winter days by copying Ronan's pink lip — a guaranteed pick-me-up if there ever was one.
