Summer is the perfect time to show off your midriff, but if you're hesitant to rock the risqué style, look to countless stylish celebrities for inspiration. Jamie Chung revealed a sliver of her stomach in a cropped tank and high-waisted black tulle skirt, Whitney Port went a bit more daring in her crop top and printed pants, and Selena Gomez went all out ballsy in her bandeau top with matching shorts. Check them and a couple more crop-top-wearing stars out before you try the trend, then shop similar pieces to get started.
During a friend's bachelorette party in Miami, Whitney Port hit the beach and showed off her bikini body in a lemon-print American Apparel bikini — here are the top ($29) and matching bottom ($29). What we love about Whitney's new bikini is that it has the traditionally sexy triangle cut that celebs love so much, but the green-and-yellow print makes it playful and fresh. If you haven't bought yourself a new bikini for Summer yet, consider adding Whitney's style to your mix. If the bottom is too tiny for you, you can even get the print in a high waist brief ($26) for a more retro feel. For some variety, mix and match by pairing the top with a solid bottom or vice versa.
Whitney Port hit the pool with friends in Miami yesterday. The girls were together for a bachelorette party, and maid of honor Whitney shared a picture of herself with the bride in their bikinis. Today the girls enjoyed time on the beach together. Whitney has been busy with her red-carpet appearances, fashion line Whitney Eve, and work on Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model. She still made time for this getaway to celebrate with one of her best girlfriends, and they all looked to be enjoying their afternoons in the warm weather, despite bouts of rain. Whitney will be joining the ranks of celebrity bridesmaids when the wedding takes place later this Summer.
Whitney Port was snapped on the streets of London wearing a vibrant Camilla and Marc floral dress, part of their Fall 2012 collection, but it was her green accessories we couldn't take our eyes off of. Whitney carried this Lulu Guinness aqua snakeskin clutch ($248, originally $495) and wore mint-colored cap-toe mules from Asos — unfortunately hers are sold out, but here are the white ($75) and navy velvet ($75) versions. We love that the clutch has a cheeky lip clasp and gold shoulder chain for when you want to wear it as a crossbody bag. Add Whitney's accessories to your repertoire and pair them up with everything from bright dresses to casual jeans.
By now it's clear that the sneaker trend has swallowed Hollywood, to the point where designers like Isabel Marant are creating insanely fashionable non-workout kicks. But Converse will always be a classic. And although the stars are dabbling with new labels, their go-to is still Converse in all shades and styles. We particularly love Diane Kruger's pink high-top pair, which she styled in a summery way via a little white dress and fedora. Nicole Richie was also recently spotted wearing studded Converse while traveling. Find out who else owns Converse sneakers and how they styled their pair, then shop the shoes for yourself.
Whitney Port attended the Vans Custom Culture Final event in Long Beach, so it makes sense that she wore a pair of its sneakers to the party. Whitney opted to pair her denim button-down with Mother Denim tropical-print jeans ($250), which Karolina Kurkova also has, a red Rebecca Minkoff ostrich-embossed bag, and Vans leopard-print sneakers ($55). We can't think of a more fabulous way to sporty up your feet, especially when worn with an all-black outfit. If you've been searching high and low for the perfect pair of sneakers to help you get in on the Hollywood sneaker craze, we think this pair is it.
Florals are a Spring staple, but for the upcoming season, flowers are covering everything from jackets to pants! Spring 2012 runways, including Peter Som, Proenza Schouler, Erdem, and Alexander Wang showed off head-to-toe prints, inspiring us to try out this trend ourselves. So in today's episode of Currently Trending, we headed to Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills to show you how to rock bold florals right now! On Allison McNamara: Stella McCartney top, Hermès bracelet.
Whitney Port was so excited over her new Summer footwear — Rebecca Minkoff's Baha Sandals ($165) — that she shared a photo of them on Instagram. With the Southwestern print being so relevant right now, these ankle-tie sandals would fit right into your wardrobe of denim cutoffs, ethnic-print tanks, and even maxi dresses. They also come in a tan and neon yellow style, so grab those for an instant pop of color in any warm-weather look. And though we have yet to spot Whitney sporting her new sandals around town, we'll keep an eye out for how she incorporates then into her everyday looks and be sure to share with you.
