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>

    8 wardrobe staples to buy now that will only get better with age

    Three summers ago, I bought a pair of soft, white-calfskin Chanel loafers. I spent months trying to keep them pristine, but it wasn’t long before a July thunderstorm left them and me soaked. I began steeling myself for what I thought was inevitable: a solemn drop in the trash. But once the loafers dried, I found the shoes’ stained stitching—now storm-cloud gray—was lovely and a few new wrinkles in the leather were charming, like smile lines for shoes. I started to wear them freely—taking on puddles and tossing them onto the sand at the beach—and before long, they transformed. The roughened toe-tops reminded me of a welcoming, worn armchair, and a wet-and-hot summer had molded the material perfectly to my feet.
