Jumpsuits Three Ways: How to Try the Trend, From Casual to Dressy

Apr/08/2014 at 01:54 PM ET

If you’ve been avoiding the jumpsuit trend for the past year or so, it may be time to cave. The one-piece look shows no signs of showing down — in the last five days alone, seven stars (Jennifer Garner, Busy Philipps, Rosario Dawson, Coco Rocha and the three lovely ladies above) have all worn one.

But not all jumpsuits are alike. Just like dresses, they range in style from halter to strapless to one-shoulder, beachy to glam, print, solid, denim, silk … you get the idea. So we rounded up three looks in ascending order of fanciness to inspire you to try the trend — or to give you some fresh ideas in case you’re already obsessed.

From left, Naomi Watts wears a Splendid chambray jumpsuit with white Yosi Samra sandals, a much-loved straw hat and shades. This look is perfect for a relaxed weekend of shopping or outdoor picnicking and can be warmed up a bit with a boyfriend cardigan if you’re taking it from day to night.

Selena Gomez (center) chooses a relaxed Ella Moss jumpsuit, but gives it extra style oomph thanks to some chunky neutral sandals, a jean jacket draped over her shoulders and big, loose waves. And finally, Alicia Keys goes glam in her Diane von Furstenberg azure one-piece, which is incredibly easy and chic to throw on with print heels and a red lip.

Which way would you wear a jumpsuit? Are you ready to try this trend or still holding out? Tell us in the comments!

Alicia Keys, Pink and Paula Patton Prove Fauxhawks Rock at the Grammys

We’re used to seeing Alicia Keys and Pink rocking pretty bold hairstyles, but it looks like Paula Patton is also jumping on the fauxhawk bandwagon for this year’s Grammy Awards.

While Keys and Pink played up their shaved sides with teased-up pompadours, Patton slicked back her long locks and added height to the front to give the effect of the punk-inspired ‘do. It showed off the out-there angry-lion bodice of her Nicolas Jebran Haute Couture gown, while Keys and Pink showcased their fabulous bods in simpler designs.

We’re loving all three interpretations — the gravity-defying hairstyle isn’t easy to pull off, but we say they all nailed it.

What did you think of their rocker-style manes?

Three Hair Moments We Must Discuss, Courtesy of L.C., Alicia and Mia

Before New York Fashion Week begins in earnest and we find ourselves buried in everything models, runways and spring styles, we’ve got to get a few things out of the way. Namely, a discussion of these three hair updates on three of our favorite stars.

Lauren Conrad is apparently following Michelle Obama‘s bangs playbook. She cut them in May, but was already slicking them back by June, and just a few months later it looks like she’s over them entirely. She combed them to the side for a Malibu event last week and appears to be ready to return to the all-one-length, sideswept waves she’s had for years.

3 Trends Spotted at the Met Gala: Spikes, Gloves & Punktastic Hair Color

May/07/2013 at 09:00 AM ET

After you’ve clicked through all the amazing (we use that word in a good and bad way) looks stars wore to the annual Met Ball, scroll down to see the punk-ish style themes that kept popping up on the red carpet.

SPIKES: There was perhaps no trend more ubiquitous than these bad boys. Jessica Alba (carrying a Christian Louboutin clutch) and Cameron Diaz (in a golden belt) looked ready to skewer vegetables for a barbecue, while Cara Delevingne reminds us of a sexy porcupine in her sharply studded Burberry gown.

GLOVES: Unlike those spikes, we never could have predicted the presence of these ladylike accessories at Fashion Prom for Punks. But Kerry Washington and Beyoncé wore them with their gowns. And then there was Kim Kardashian, who wore gloves attached to her dress and in the same print.

PUNK HAIR COLOR: Lily Collins (rocking blue streaks), Diane Kruger (who dip-dyed her ponytail pink) and Alicia Keys (with red highlights) are giving us flashbacks to the Manic Panic-fueled days of middle school. Wonder if any of them, including Kerry Washington with her purple-ish mane, will keep the color after the Ball has ended.

Which of these trends would you consider trying?

Alicia Keys: Style Should Be Comfortable - Unless You're Talking High Heels!

Alicia Keys has amassed an impressive (and expensive!) shoe collection since hitting it big, but she still has affection for the kicks she loved growing up: Reebok’s Freestyle sneakers, known to the N.Y.C. teen as “54-11s” for their after-tax price of $54.11.

That’s why the star was inspired to update the silhouette for her second collaboration with Reebok, though she added a wedge to dress the look up a bit.

“I want to wear them every day, not just because they’re mine,” she told PEOPLE at a launch event for the sneakers, “[but] because they look great and because they’re comfortable.”

Comfort is key for the on-the-go mom, who says she’s noticed her style change over the years. “Evolving and becoming a woman has really changed my style,” she said. “Style should be comfortable. You should feel great [when you] put it on – although some shoes I wear are not very comfortable. But my sneakers are!”

Also on the star’s style must list: flowy, silky pants from designers like Chloé and Stella McCartney, bright colors and pieces with “an androgynous feel.” That includes her “boy-girly” Reebok sneakers, which will be available on Reebok.com and Nordstrom.com starting April 1.

Tell us: Are you excited to check out Keys’s latest sneaker collection?

Hollywood's Hot New Nails Are Straight Outta the '80s

After months of long, pointy talons, wacky nail art and glittery disco polish not safe for the office, stars are finally sporting a sassy nail polish trend we can actually try — and it’s got vintage appeal.

That’s right, the most popular nail look in Hollywood is a throwback to a simpler time, when we all wore scrunchies, craved a Barbie car and “borrowed” our moms’ bright red polish.

Obviously, red nails have never gone out of style, but it’s a specific shade of bright cherry lacquer that inspires the nostalgia trip to 1987. And we know it’s red-hot at the moment because it’s been spotted on stars as diverse as (from left) Zooey Deschanel, Emmy Rossum, Alicia Keys and Olivia Palermo. Though their style ranges from über-girlie to trendy to funky, all look equally chic in the bold hue.
