Summer fashion preview
Are these 3 celeb trends a do or don't?
by Emily Mahaney
Earlier this week, we talked about two major spring beauty trends (head scarves and wet hair)—and now, I want to chat for a sec about three easy, everyday fashion trends that I’m predicting will be huge this summer: embellished cutoffs, yellow dresses, and statement tees. First up…
Trend #1: The Embellished Cutoff
The classic cuffed jort will always, always be a seasonal staple, but it’s her quirky cousin—the embellished cutoff—that I think will be huge for summer 2013. Stars like Kat Graham, left, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (crystal-encrusted floral shorts? oh, yes) are already on board. The style is flirty, fun, and easy (just pair with a breezy, tucked-in blouse—and you’re done!). I say: Do. What about you?

Trend #2: The Yellow Dress
Over the past few years, the little yellow dress has essentially replaced the LBD for summer. Chloë Grace Moretz, left, opts to wear ‘em for day. (How cute is that swingy neon yellow number?) And Vanessa Hudgens takes the look into night with sequins. I’m blond, so I’ve always been a little scared of the LYD—but I think it’s a bold, playful Do on everyone else. Thoughts?

Trend #3: The Statement TeeFirst came the faux fashion brand logo tees—and now, we’re seeing loads of statement tees (or as we at Glamour like to call them, “talking tees”) across the U.S. on celebs, models like Jennifer Nicole Lee, left, and real women (and men!) alike. As long as they’re not gross or sexual—remember that Female Body Inspector tee on Friends?—I think they’re pretty cute. I’m calling a Do here, people. You?

beauty tips and style advice
Sprinkle in these wet weather essentials so you'll be ready for whatever these springtime days bring.
Let's face it: winter's bitter cold left us feeling disillusioned with our wardrobes. So with warmer days ahead, it's time to shop for must-have pieces that'll keep your look fresh for months to come.
Every bride deserves to look flawless on her wedding day. So we say: Indulge a little. Book a facial (or six!) and invest in a great waterproof mascara. With this guide, getting ready for your big day has never been easier.
Reality TV: such a mindless guilty pleasure, mostly filled with questionable spray tans and insane hair extensions. But in honor of the season premiere of one of our favorites, The Real Housewives of Orange County, we decided to celebrate a select few reality stars who’ve displayed legitimately great hair and makeup. Yes, there actually are a few! And we had to go all the way back to The Real World of the mid-’90s to find our first.
I can’t tell you how many times one ill-timed sneeze ruined all of my hard work with a mascara wand. #allergyproblems.
While we’re not averse to shelling out upwards of $30 for an amazing lipstick, many of our standby lip colors cost a whole lot less than that. The drugstore is full of high-quality, long-lasting lipsticks in gorgeous shades that—wait for it!—ring in under $10. Click through above to shop our favorites!
What’s the perfect add-on to your beauty look? A hair accessory, of course! Just when you think you’ve seen it all, every year there seems to be a new “it” hair piece that rules the moment. In the ’50s, a dainty bow-tied head scarf was perfectly housewife-chic. In the ’60s and ’70s, real flower crowns officially became the epitome of boho style—your outfit simply wasn’t complete without a daisy topper. Fast-forward to the ’90s and you had a bevy of creative hair charms and baubles, including butterfly clips, hair wraps and those infamous bra strap headbands (shudder).
The right blush can warm up your complexion, create the illusion of cheekbones, and even make you look younger. (Yes, really!) Here, the most flattering shades for fair, medium, olive, and dark skin.
Think you can’t put a price on looking younger? Well, we did—and it’s $25. We challenged dermatologists to find great products that don’t cost even one cent over that amount.
You want to dress in a way that’s young and cool but that doesn’t suggest you’re on your way to a One Direction concert. “The trick to looking younger is adding one fashionable piece to a classic outfit,” says stylist Cher Coulter. Here’s how to nail it.
Hair color is one of the most effective anti-aging tools we have—except when it isn’t. Take your dye job too far (or inky, or frosty) and you can add years to your appearance. Three top colorists weigh in on what to avoid.
News flash: Your youth fix doesn’t have to come in a bottle—or a needle. Your hairstyle could actually take years off (or add them to) your look. Don’t believe us? Check out these celebrities—each one gorgeous, of course, but also looking older due to certain overly perfect hairdos. Anti-aging tip number one? Mess it up a little.
