In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we saw chic compartments, a top with some cover and a pair of trousers that reminds us of Xanadu — we saw it once by accident, and don’t expect see it again.

Up: Fun Pockets. We know from experience that one of the best things to discover when you’re shopping for a dress is finding out that the little number you just picked off the rack has pockets. It seems that the ladies on the red carpet are also fond of having them as well and have proudly display them in a chic manner. Lucy Liu (left) donned a gray cap-sleeve Andrew Gn dress, which had a pair of bejeweled accents that elevated a simple shift. Keira Knightley also sported a pocket embellishment on her golden Simone Rocha midi while Zendaya modeled two slouchy ones on her Emanuel Ungaro skirt. We love this look, but does this mean that handbags will become obsolete? Stay tuned.

Up: No-Skin Crop Tops. These midriff-baring pieces have been around for some time now, which means it’s time for celebs to get creative. Two weeks ago, we saw lace belly-baring tops. The latest spin? A demure, non-skin-showing style. Kelly Osbourne (center) paired her busy Alice + Olivia skirt with a black crop top that barely shows a sliver of skin. Keri Russell also decided to cover up in a white Monique Lhuillier top with chic cap sleeves. Does this inspire those of you who have been crop-top averse to give the trend a try?

Down: Sheer Linen Trousers Under a Dress. If something seemed a bit odd to you with Keira Knightley’s (right) Chanel dress, you were not mistaken. Though it looks like she’s perched her multicolor confection on top of a sheer skirt, turns out, it’s actually a pair of tiered, lacy linen trousers! We commend her for making bold, fashion-forward choices, but this trend has never been up and never will be. (Sorry Keira. Maybe you should stick with that cute go-to outfit you’ve been wearing throughout your Begin Again tour?)

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