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?

i used to love this girl. she needs to grow out her hair and fire her stylist.everything she wears is atrocious these days- and it’s so sad because she’s stunning

I love the blazer, but I would have paired it with a cute red top to match her lips. Than I would have ditched the shorts and worn some skinny jeans with some nice back pocket designs, maybe with a floral print. That way she could keep the booties.

^ Ang you know your stuff! That would have been a GREAT outfit!

She was very attractive when she first appeared on DWTS, now she looks a little worn. She should grow her hair out, if she has a stylist, she should find a new one because this one isn’t working and she needs to stop wearing skirts that can double as booty shorts.

The only thing I would keep is the shorts. I would change the blazer to maybe a satin edged blazer with a more tailored fit (the ruffled edge of her blazer and the billowy fit of the shorts gives her a weird shape in the middle), change the top to a sheer collarless blouse and add a chunky necklace. Change the booties to closed toe pumps(this is January after all) and let her hair down, she is way too young for that matronly up-do.

I would send her back to Dancing With the Stars … those outfits were great for her!

The shorts are cute, but it’s freeeeeezing in Toronto right now. The girl needs some pants!

Julianne always looked stunning on DWTS but lately she looks worn out aka unhappy which is aging her. Maybe she wants a ring and it’s not coming.

Tiffany on

I don’t like any of it.

When are women going to realize that by not wearing hosiery they look half dressed. Bare legs are fine for casual wearing of shorts, sundresses, etc. Julianne’s legs look horrible . Kate Middleton, now that”s a lady who knows how to dress.
