One more thing (among so many) we love about the full-skirt trend: it's both figure flattering and flaw concealing, as evidenced by Kiernan Shipka and Anna Kendrick. For more sophisticated first date outfits watch this video!

Sure, it's a bold look. But if you keep the rest of the face simple, like Camilla Belle and Kate Bosworth, you can absolutely own the orange lip this summer. Now, for getting your lips in tip-top shape, watch this video to check out the best beauty picks.

 

Summer Style Trend: Mesh

Go the full J-Law (if you dare), or just show a hint of summer's hot mesh, like Alexa Chung does, on a bodice, sleeve or skirt.

 

Summer Style Trend: Tuxedo Looks

Thank you Keri Russell and Suki Waterhouse for proving that menswear can be rendered simply stunning for us girls. We love the versatility, comfort and overall super-smart look of tuxedo jackets and pants, together or separately.

 

Summer Style Trend: Iridescent Details

Go all-out shimmer like Heidi Klum, or have fun with an iridescent accent like a bag à la Louise Roe.

 

Summer Style Trend: Sheer Accents

Amp up the drama with a sheer skirt in the style of Diane Kruger or go for a just whisper of scandal with your sleeves alone, like Ashley Greene.

 

Summer Style Trend: Messy Updos

The great thing about Blake Lively and Michelle Dockey's pretty going-out go-to is that perfection is far from the goal.

 

Summer Style Trend: Bomber Jackets

Youthful, flirty and fun, bomber jackets are rendered feminine this summer on everyone from Kelly Osbourne to Sophia Bush.

 

Summer Style Trend: Bold Graphics

Follow the lead of Lupita Nyong'o and Cate Blanchett by heralding the arrival of the new season with impactful graphics in joyful brights.

Pack a punch like Selena Gomez and Chrissy Teigen with beading, sequins or other splashy embellishments all over a bodice or as a smaller accent anywhere.
