SWAP YOUR LBD FOR A JUMPSUIT
“Ugh, I wish I wore that!” – every woman in a safe black cocktail dress at the reception when you walk in. And because formal onesies are being sold at practically every store now, you don’t have to drop a ton on a designer version like Rose Byrne’s Max Mara jumpsuit.

We know, we know, it’s not a style typically associated with the summer (#foreheadsweat), but stars like , , Kat Dennings and Idina Menzel all cut fringe recently. Jessica’s hairstylist Renato Campora explains why it’s having a moment: The bob is huge right now, but for women who want to keep their length, he says this is a still-dramatic, but lower-commitment change.

WEAR A CROP TOP (WITHOUT SHOWING SKIN)
When choosing between going to the gym to do crunches and going to happy hour to eat guacamole, we’ll almost always go for guac. Luckily, that doesn’t preempt us from getting in on the shrunken shirt trend. And it shouldn t stop you either. Just pair it with a very high-waisted skirt or pants as Kiernan Shipka does.

SWIPE ON BLUE SHADOW
Unless you’re an ice dancer or Katy Perry, there’s really only one time when you can get away with wearing this shade: summer. So take advantage and get inspired by Lupita Nyong’o’s bold look.

BUY A ONE-PIECE
This might be the first year you see just as many of these as bikinis on the beach. That’s because there are suddenly so many options, and many of them are as fun and sexy as a two-piece (see: sleek black one-shoulder suit).

BRING BACK THE BODYSUIT
, if you’re reading this checklist, you can cross this item off. But for everyone else, we highly encourage you to try it. Lots of stores offer blousy versions if skintight isn’t your thing. And just think how much free time you’ll have when you no longer have to stop every half hour to retuck in your shirt.

DEBUTE YOUR CUT ON INSTA
What we used to do after getting a haircut: go home and wait for significant other to notice, get annoyed when significant other fails to notice. What we do now: snap a selfie and let hundreds of people notice.

Do you sometimes roll your eyes at fashion bloggers’ highly stylized Instagram shots? Would you rather wear jeans than a printed cutout dress with an open back and exposed zippers? Are there Birkenstocks in your closet? Then chances are you’re already embracing the trend of “sameness and blandness.” Looks like is, too.
