With one week of summer left, you’d assume the stars would be rocking their shortest minis, strappiest sandals and brightest dresses on the red carpet. But apparently some celebs just can’t wait to debut their fall wardrobes. Check out this week’s on-the-rise trends and one look that (sadly) appears to be on its way out:
Up: Wide-leg dress pants: Say bye-bye to short-shorts because it’s all about the wide-leg pant. Kristen Bell‘s black Jenny Packham jumpsuit mixes two totally different vibes — a ’70s pant silhouette and a futuristic sculptural satin top — to create one stunning look. And another plus to the popular pant cut is it’s flattering on all body types.
Up: Silky collared tanks: Want to look instantly polished? Ashley Tisdale and Kiernan Shipka‘s current shirt style of choice is your answer. A collared sleeveless top adds an air of sophistication (without being stuffy) to any mini or pant. And we love how Tisdale accessorizes the tank with a statement necklace that peaks through the top, which helps keep it young and fresh.
Down: Pops of neon: We have a feeling neon’s 15 minutes are almost up. With a serious dip in red carpet sightings, we have to wonder — can the eye-popping trend survive much longer? Regardless, Jennie Garth is apparently determined to make it last because she’s one of the remaining stars still sporting the style.
