In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we noticed stars giving bold 3-D prints a shot and a new shoe hue we’re really into. Plus, we spotted one braid that left us in knots. Consider this your fashion forecast.

Up: 3-D Prints. Jennifer Aniston braved florals this week, so now we dare the star to try out this bold print trend. Olivia Wilde made us want to pull out our 3-D glasses and grab a bucket of popcorn in her psychedelic Clover Canyon mini. Plus, the orchids on Ashley Tisdale’s Clover Canyon mini almost managed to distract us from her Godzilla-sized engagement ring.

Up: Peach Pumps. Are white pumps finally on their way out? We kind of hope so. And we’d be perfectly happy if peach heels take their place. Emmy Rossum paired her Rebecca Minkoff plaid mini with Alice + Olivia lizard pumps that we kind of want to splurge on. And Ashley Tisdale is a double-trendsetter this week (pat yourself on the back, Tiz), pairing her dress with the fruity heels.

Down: Super-Messy Braids. Yes, braids are a very popular summer style. But lately stars have been keeping their plaits soft and simple (see Bella Thorne and Amber Heard). Vanessa Hudgens, however, tossed “simple” out the window for a super-sloppy braid piled on top of her head that was just too messy to endorse.

For more on which trends to follow, check out our thoughts on shoulder pads and cleavage-grazing earrings.

Her hair is not that bad. I’m sure if Beyonce was sporting this hairstyle, your opinion would be very different.

i actually think the messy braid is fabulous… here in Montana that is how a lot of us gals roll…braids and cowgirl hats! as for the other two styles, they are nice but I personally would have to be paid to wear them! ick. but to each their own!

Does anyone else fail to see how Olivia Wilde’s dress qualifies as a mini? It’s at her knees.

I think her hair would look better in that braided style if it wasn’t so obviously two very different shades (the blonde one looks really ratty and brittle) Can you imagine how much better it would look in a deep chocolate brown?

The braid is actually the only one out of the three that looks good!

Peach pumps are so 1980’s “working girl” meets “Tootsie”… That trend needs to die with the Mullet and all the other 80’s bad trends!

Ali her dress is way below her knee..

I don’t mind the hair. It might look better if it was all one shade.
