Who: Piper Perabo

Where: Visiting the SiriusXM studios in N.Y.C.

Diagnosis: She’s suffering from one of the highest “Leave It” ratings in recent StyleWatch history. Also: chafing.

Prognosis: There is absolutely no resuscitating high-waisted, quilted, front-zip leather bike shorts: They must be left to die. For immediate triage, we recommend swapping in some cute, relaxed cutoffs. Once the immediate danger is over, we can discuss wearing a long-sleeved turtleneck in July, but at the moment, the cute shoes and great hair keep Piper out of immediate danger.
