In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we saw eyelids that popped, chic little onesies and a shoe style that likely won’t catch on

Up: Blue Eyeshadow. Lupita Nyong’o kicked this trend off, and now everyone else is following suit. Keira Knightley complimented her teal metallic Erdem dress with an equally shimmering shadow. Following with the monochromatic theme, Liv Tyler lined he eyes a deep blue to go with her navy Stella McCartney mini. Emmy Rossum, on the other hand, decided to contrast her fuchsia Monique Lhuillier gown with a turquoise shade along her lids.

Up: Sophisticated Rompers. When you think of a romper most of you would probably associate it with music festival fashion (or the sandbox!) — not the red carpet. However, we have seen some designs this week that made us think there might be a place for these chic onesies besides a mosh pit full of sweaty young adults. Amy Poehler chose a slouchy black piece with lace sleeves that is both formal event-appropriate and summer-friendly. Candice Swanepoel selected an off-the-shoulder Candela creation with sheer sleeves, while Kourtney Kardashian opted for a bright pleated Blaque fuchsia romper for a fun pop of color.

Down: Peep-Toe Mules. This style was definitely one of spring’s hottest shoes this year — and why not? It’s easy to slip on and more comfortable than walking around the office all day in five-inch stilettos. But recently, we saw a variation that just doesn’t seem to quite cut it. Elle Fanning selected a black pair to go with her pale-pink Lanvin mini, but they seemed to be missing something — the tips! While we don’t see the mule going away anytime soon, the Maleficent star should probably put this toe-baring pair back on the rack.

Which of these trends will you try? Which will you skip? Tell us in the comments!
