We may not know what the color of the year is for next year, but we’re seeing plenty of yellow on the red carpet right now.

It’s not mustard yellow or mellow yellow. It’s Big Bird yellow, friends.

Take Chicago P.D.‘s Sophia Bush for instance. Sophia wore so much bright yellow lately, that it even prompted InStyle to ask the actress her reasoning behind it.

Sophia wore a Bella Freud sweater with “Bada Boum” on it, then a Whistles turtleneck in marigold, and lastly a Crayola yellow leather jacket by Victoria Beckham.

“I think it’s just me loving the fact that I actually get to experience fall here,” Sophia said, referring to her filming location. “The leaves are changing, and yellow and orange are some of my favorite colors. So I guess, subconsciously, I’ve just been dressing like a fall tree or something.”

Another fan of the bright hue? Actress and singer Hailee Steinfeld, who attended the Nickelodeon Halo Awards, wore a J. Mendel high-neck long sleeved dress. Looking far from a 19-year-old on the red carpet, The Edge of Seventeen star embodied pure sophistication.

Normally a spring choice, the color is definitely getting its moment.

Even actress Dianna Agron favored the hue for her wedding band, which matched her gorgeous Miu Miu floral dress.

How should you go about it in trying out the color? Try a lace dress that should make a bold statement in a flattering silhouette. like this ModCloth ($104.99) one that’s casual enough for a day date.

Not keen on spending too much on this trend? Dip your toes with this yellow pencil skirt from Forever 21 ($11.90) for those casual Fridays.
