Summer fashion preview

Are these 3 celeb trends a do or don't?

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…

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 TeePhotos: Splash News; Craig Brown/Getty Images
First 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?

So... short shorts that show your undies when you move the wrong way and less-ironic statement t-shirts. Totally looking forward to this season's hot new trend. </sarcasm>

    What to wear on every kind of date

    It’s the best and worst time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, past generations of women didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course), or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today. On the other hand, they also didn’t have to worry about sexting, selecting the best selfie for their profile picture, or accidentally swiping right on a coworker.
