It's only January, but the ladies on the Golden Globe red carpet are steaming things up despite the recent doses of cool weather lately. While Spring has not yet arrived, the stars are paving the way for the best looks to don as the season slowly approaches.
While this particular trend isn't considered new and revolutionary on any red carpet, it's proven that it's here to stay countless times over. This year is no exception as we see Taylor Schilling in a glittery Thakoon suit (above), Olivia Wilde in a stunning classic Michael Kors Collection dress (below), and if you're daring enough, take a look at Kristen Dunst's Haute Valentino Couture dress (below).
Other honorable mentions include the likes of singer Katy Perry in a gorgeous pink Prada dress.
and model Rosie Huntington Whitely in Atelier Versace.
2. Clavicles (aka your collarbone)
Like the first trend, this one is a common look for any occasion, even more so if you find that your collarbones are your best feature. Depending on the outfit, you can additionally enhance your assets while oozing a classy elegance like Empire's Taraji Henson in a crisp, white Stella McCartney dress (above) or in the upgraded version of the little black dress (LBD) on Lady Gaga (below).
While both looks are on the opposite of the spectrum, color and dress wise, both ladies wear minimal accessories to not deter too much attention away from the chest up and the strapless gowns like in Kate Bosworth's glittery Dolce & Gabbana's emsamble (below) where she opted for a few pieces of jewelry, further showing that you don't always need to overdress.
3. Covered Shoulders
With exposed shoulders out of the way, covered shoulders are just as flattering whether if it's the cape variety like the vampy Valentino Haute Couture look worn on Game of Throne's actress, Emilia Clarke (above) or on Uzo Aduba's Talbot Runof's dress (below).
4. Pops of Color
Despite the minimalist, winter-weather appropriate variations of red, green, black - I'm looking at you Emilia Clarke - and the majority of every color that is known to man, it's refreshing to see bright shades of red like Emmy Rossum's Armani Privé strapless look (above) and America Ferrera's sunny Jenny Packham dress (below) as the winter months pass by.
Let's not forget their darker counterparts, though.

5. Sheer Anyone?
Undoubtedly, sheer has and will continue to make a statement on the red carpet. From Corinna Foxx's birds (above), strategically placed tulle on both Sarah Hay's Marchesa gown (below) or with fringe like on Cate Blanchett's Givenchy Haute Couture dress (below).
6. Cut-Outs Are Still In
Although there weren't that many looks with cut-outs on the Golden Globes red carpet, there are two categories for this particular, on-going trend: traditional and nontraditional.
Traditional is the equivalent of Eva Longoria's ultra dainty look or the more summer goddess-inclined dresses of Brie Larson and Lily James (both below).
Then there's J. Law in an ab-baring Dior dress (below).
