VELVET IN THE SUMMER
Florence Welch and Emma Roberts look hot. Literally. Despite the warm temps outside, both stars step out in the winter-friendly fabric. Hey, if leather can re-brand itself as a summer staple then maybe velvet will be able to the same?

FORMAL MOCK TURTLENECKS
After years of trying to convince all the men in our lives that this look should be avoided at all costs, we’re eating our words upon seeing and wearing them on the red carpet.

Now that Larry King has retired, carries his style torch with Moschino Cheap & Chic suspender-accessorized pants. (We’re fairly certain, though, that Larry never wore his hanging down and with a crop top.)

BLOUSES AS DRESSES
Perhaps thought the best way to balance a grandpa-esque cardigan was by wearing her Acne button-down with nothing but tights. Or maybe she just knows how hot her legs are and felt the need to remind all of us.

SPEECH BUBBLE CLUTCHES
Model Dree Hemingway’s Sophia Webster evening bag reads, “Hold Me,” making it the most literal interpretation of a statement accessory we’ve ever seen.

We wonder if Dita Von Teese’s mother talked her into wearing this Ulyana Sergeenko dress just like our moms talked us into wearing a dress with poufy shoulders for our 1988 family Christmas portrait.
21 of 64
What we really wanted to wear in 1988 for the aforementioned Christmas portrait (and pretty much every other occasion that decade): a jean topper with cutoff sleeves similar to the one is rocking.

SLITS WITHOUT LIMITS
Ke$ha sings quite a bit about getting high, but perhaps all this time she was just referring to
leg thigh hip-baring slits.

SNAKES ON A RED CARPET
They’re not just on planes, they’re also at Cannes! Sharon Stone and accessorize their glam gowns with serpent-inspired accents.

OPEN-TOE BOOTIES IN SUMMER
Isn’t it just such a bummer that you can’t show off your fresh pedicure when you’re wearing boots? Emma Roberts has graciously found a solution to this pressing problem.

THE FLOATING COLLAR
If you work at a conservative office or are invited to a buttoned-up event, but you don’t want to deny the world a look at your décolletage, get a top like Alyssa Milano’s, which offers the best of both worlds.

TIGHTS IN MAY
The sun is out, the temps are up, so the only possible explanation for why Zooey Deschanel is still in her black stockings is that she’s been wearing them for so long, they’re now permanently fused to her legs.

BANDEAUS & HIGH-WAISTED SKIRTS AS GOWNS
If your maxi skirt is too long, skip the tailor and simply hike it up to just below your strapless bra. Et voilà, a red carpet ensemble as classy as Shahs of Sunset star Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi’s!

No longer just for psychics on the boardwalk, these head wraps have been spotted on Snooki and many other stars. Slip one on, peer into your crystal ball and tell us: Will we regret wearing them come fall?
29 of 64
We used to think of these as a fate worse than mom jeans, but non-mom Olivia Palermo and cool mom (in an Alice + Olivia design) have us reconsidering the conservative bottoms.

LOOSE LEATHER PANTS
We’re really hoping dry cleaner mixed up the star’s clothes with her boyfriend’s. Otherwise, it means she intentionally chose to wear these saggy bottoms.

Well, at least you don’t have to worry about your lingerie clashing with your shoes anymore! dives head- (or rather, feet-) first into the trend with two different pairs of lacy Nicholas Kirkwood pumps.

Forget tennis whites. is determined to make tennis leathers happen. Those are going to be some sweaty, sweaty matches…

A porcupine has spikes to keep predators away so we have to wonder who is trying to fend off with her Denim of Virtue jeans.

How do you update a print that’s been worn a bazillion times by every celeb in Hollywood? By doing as Marissa Miller does and wearing an alternating see-through-and-opaque version that shows off your belly button, duh.

BUTTON-DOWNS MEET OVERALLS
Frankly, is smart to wear a pair of Joe’s Jeans ‘ralls that snap down the front. Because when this trend dies, she’s going to need an exit plan that allows her to get out of them quickly.

Anything awards show attendees can do, can do better (or at least, more casually). She wears the typically formal silhouette via a flowy cotton top.

If it’s true what they say and the eyes are the window to someone’s soul, Hailee Steinfeld is really flaunting her soul in this patterned Kenzo dress.

THE BUILT-IN BUST STRAP
We’ve spent so many years making sure our bra straps don’t show that we’re confused by the fact that Olivia Munn and Jamie Chung are sporting necklines that look a bit like bras worn backwards.
39 of 64
You know those weight loss commercials where the person holds up the “before” pants against her “after” figure? That is not what you’re looking at. It’s just wearing striped Balmain bottoms, big enough to fit two or three of her in each voluminous pant leg.

Team Paris? We can’t decide if Diane Kruger (who loves a good fashion risk) is scoring sartorial points on the style court or fouling out in this athletic-inspired Emanuel Ungaro top.

EXPOSED ANKLE SOCKS
High-tops as fashion footwear: very 2013. But pairing the lace-ups with pink scrunch socks? is giving us major déjà vu to 1989, though she’s clearly missing one timely touch: beaded friendship pins on the laces.

Rita Ora channels the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz in her matching high-shine silver jacket and pencil skirt, but the phrase some of you might imagine her singing is, “If I only had a stylist.”

SHOE STRAPS OVER SKINNIES
As any person who attended summer camp knows, there’s only one good reason to tuck your pants into your shoes. And that is to protect your legs from ticks. We have a feeling that’s not what Bella Thorne is doing here.

Some stars raise eyebrows with their looks, but one-ups them all by shading her eyebrows with this pair of Topshop sunglasses.

“That’s what you get for waking up in … Holland?” slips into brown leather-and-wood clunkers and we have to give it to her – they look way more comfortable than any other heel she’s worn.

With so many ladies wearing shorts so short that they show under-butt, we appreciate bucking the trend. But did she have to go all the way to the other end of the spectrum?

IRIDESCENTS ON IRIDESCENTS
Do you think put on that sparkly crop top with her torn-up jeans, looked in the mirror and said to herself, “I’m worried I might blend into the background,” then added the oversize shimmering clutch just to be safe?

THE LEATHER CHAP SANDAL
Some professional posers are known for their “off-duty model” looks, but Doutzen Kroes appears more interested in perfecting the “off-duty bucking bronco rider” look.

Because sometimes blue-and-white seersucker isn’t preppy enough, Selma Blair opts for a pair of striped Vineyard Vines shorts emblazoned with tiny belugas.

BATHING SUITS WITH SLEEVES
A hybrid of the one-piece and the surf rash guard, Olivia Palermo’s Lisa Maria Fernandez swimsuit reminds us a bit of the leotards we used to wear for our ballet recitals (without the sexy zipper, of course).

If a clown were in mourning, we imagine he’d wear a short, fat tie like the black one dons around her neck.

Another ’80s trend making a comeback: mottled denim. Next time we accidentally drop our jeans in a bleach load, we plan to say it wasn’t an accident and wear them as does.

MEN'S DRESS SHOES ... ON WOMEN
That is not a zoot suit has on (we’re actually not sure what to call the separates she has on), but her two-tone Saint Laurent brogues are certainly zoot suit compliant.

CLEAR PLASTIC PENCIL SKIRTS
Your HR manager called. She’d like to rescind her previous comment that you can’t go wrong with a below-the-knee skirt and a button-down. Good thing Rita Ora, in Burberry Prorsum, doesn’t have a traditional 9-to-5.

PRETTY WOMAN BOOTS
Would you call these over-the-knee stilettos “a big mistake, big, huge” or do you love Lily Collins’s sexy footwear?

EMPIRE WAIST TURTLENECK DRESSES
True story: We had an impromptu mini-meeting to figure out what to call the two-tone number is wearing. In California, in August, we might add.

DREAM CATCHER NECKLACES
Remember those woven hoops decorated with feathers and beads that you hung over your bed? Evidently Shailene Woodley does, since she recycled it as a rather unique red carpet accessory.

It’s almost as if Emilia Clarke wanted to destroy the evidence of her top then thought better of it halfway through.
