There is a sunny new trend that's sure to add a little brightness to your closet. Celebrities have been wearing yellow during workouts, and not just as a subtle pop of color but in bold yellow-on-yellow getups. It's not hard to guess why a lot of people have been gravitating to the color as this summer approaches. Yellow is proven to create feelings of warmth and happiness, and there's no question that something about the color that yells "It's gonna be a great day!"

The color has been popping up on just about every style icon's Instagram. Rita Ora chose yellow for a private Pilates session in L.A., Madelaine Petsch wore it during an outdoor booty workout, and Hailey Bieber cranked out pull-ups in the color.

In addition to Ellis Ross's (literally) hot insta post, one-half of everyone's favorite dynamic duo, Tamera Mowry, also shared an Instagram photo this week of her wearing a matching lemony yellow set.
