In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we saw some statement-making suiting, prints worth mentioning and a pair of earrings that may weigh you down, but likely won’t take off.

Up: Big Lapels. For the past month or so, Hollywood’s leading ladies have been reviving and refreshing the menswear trend with neck bows, tailored suits and collared dresses, and now it seems that they have found yet another way to add a masculine twist to their red carpet looks. Kate Mara (left) wears a Dior tuxedo vest dress with oversized satin detailing. Kim Kardashian also wore some larger-than-life lapels on her tailored jacket (and you know if these two fashionable celebs are already on trend, others are soon to follow).

Up: Geometric Prints. Last week it was dark florals, this week a new bold print takes center stage on the red carpet. Zooey Deschanel (center) shows off a symmetrical design on one of the pieces from her collection with Tommy Hilfiger. We also saw some linear lines and a-cute angles (get it) on Jamie Lynn Spears’ sequin dress and Kate Upton’s red Fendi mini, leading us to want to add another fresh print to our wardrobes.

Down: Oversize Hoops. We were going to make an off-color hoops-related joke here, but we refrained. Kacey Musgraves’s (right) earrings certainly make a big statement, but it’s not one you see many stars making these days. Jeweled bangles this large will likely remain on the wrists of most stars — and they’ll save their giant hoop earrings for a pool party at Tone-Loc’s house.
