Style Rx: Julianne Hough's Almost-There Outfit

01/22/2013 at 06:00 PM ET

Julianne Hough Outfits O’Neill/White/INF

Who: Julianne Hough

Where: A visit to Toronto’s Much Music studios to promote her film Safe Haven

Diagnosis: We love Hough’s fun approach to fashion, but it’s time to get serious about her ongoing string of not-quite-there outfits. The ensemble at left suffers from overstyling, identity confusion and stumpifying booties.

Prescription: Keep the Ann Taylor jacket but ditch the prissy lace-collared blouse for a less fussy sheer white tee. We get where you were going with the Asos shorts, but think this sleek print pencil skirt would look way more chic and flattering. Then take two classic black pumps and call us in the morning.

Tell us: How would you cure Julianne Hough’s ensemble?

Looks like she is borrowing too many of Ryan’s Saturday night outfits. Should have left them in his closet.

Not a flattering presenation. Julianne is too pretty for this sad looking outfit. New stylist is needed for sure!

just saying on

If she has a stylish she needs to fire her or him ASAP, this girl is way to pretty to be looking like a HAM. Hire Brad! He would do wonders for this stunning lady

She looks old.

I never thought the words “horrible legs” and “Julianne Hough” would be in the same sentence! This is not a flattering look for her. As someone else mentioned….it’s flippin’ freezing cold in Toronto and she’s wearing shorts. Seriously??

I think it looks tacky. Looks like she had something done to her face

I don’t think it’s her outfit that need help but society and their shallow, callous behaviour. Who is anyone to say what looks good or not on someone? It’s all about personal taste and isn’t for anyone else to say yes or no, but the person wearing the clothes. And the comment about her legs? They are what they are, what she was born with. Sorry they couldn’t live up to your lofty ideas of beautiful, but not everyone is perfectly plastic and I’m sure you have some natural imperfections, but they make you, you!

That outfit can’t be fixed. Throw it out and start over.

It almost seems like she is trying to counteract her ballroom dance style. I could kind of understand that given her desire to branch out, which she is doing quite successfully, and given some of the sadness of her dancing past, but I hope she can embrace it. She is a stunning dancer. As a 44 year old, this outfit reminds me of something from the 80’s that we would have turned our noses at 5-10 years ago. Why must we recycle bad fashion. I still love bootcut low-rise pants. I am not going to probably wear skinny jeans. And I don’t get that Taylor Swift never-ever song. It would have been viewed as overly bubbly gum 10-20 years ago. giyagiyagaiygaig
