Crop tops have been the trend of 2014 (sorry, overalls) and we’re starting to notice that stars are gravitating towards one version of the style more than any other. Fitted, belly-baring tops paired with perfectly-matched circle skirts have been seen on everyone from Reese Witherspoon to Suki Waterhouse to Taylor Swift (it’s her favorite look right now) and we’re checking out three styles that we saw within the past 24 hours, from sweet to spicy, to evaluate.

October PEOPLE StyleWatchMirrorpix/Splash News Online

The topic of wearing socks with sandals is one that we’ve been hotly contesting since Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen did it (and since the advent of “normcore”). Now we’re officially putting it to a vote with this shot of British TV personality Fearne Cotton. You’ll often see her wearing wacky outfits and she certainly is never one to shy away from a trend; in this case, she accessorized her footwear with an oversize coat and distressed denim.

There are multiple variations of this combo, from flat hippie-ish sandals to platform stacked heels (and the socks can vary too) — and we’ve seen this look everywhere from the most high-fashion runway to your wackiest uncle, but will we see it on you? Weigh in and let us know what you think of the fashion-forward trend. Are you loving it? Or are you hating it? Vote now and get the results in our October issue!

Olivia Palermo's Style Equation: The Star Works Fashion Magic with Simple Wardrobe Math

Jul/22/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

It’s no secret that Olivia Palermo has pulled off some of the best (and boldest) getups we have ever seen — she can make jeans look anything but basic and pull off print-mixing that would look crazy on the average human. But the true secret to her style prowess is her ability to rework her pieces to create new and surprising ensembles. We checked out some of the fashionista-turned-designer‘s recent outfits and discovered that she has a simple style equation she relies on for her always-awesome looks. Take a peek at the examples below and let us know if you can crack the star’s style code.

Jennifer Lopez's Pants/Dress Combo Platter Inspires an Editor Debate: 'Obsessed or Hot Mess?'

Jul/07/2014 at 03:26 PM ET

Jennifer Lopez is never one to play it safe on the style front — and this latest look, an Atelier Versace high-fashion jumpsuit-slash-dress, is just another notch on her risk-taker belt. And much like any fashion-forward ensemble, it inspired a debate in the PEOPLE StyleWatch offices. Below, we take sides; read on, then tell us where you fall on the great jumpsuit/dress pro/con spectrum.

OBSESSED: Brittany Talarico, Associate Style Editor: I have been experiencing jumpsuit fatigue lately. I love the trend, and I have a few onesies hanging in my closet, but it’s becoming a little stale on the red carpet. So when Jennifer Lopez introduced this gown-meets-pants Versace creation at the label’s Paris show, I got very excited. In my opinion, it’s like the jumpsuit’s sassy older sister. Plus, it fit her body impeccably and gave me flashbacks to old-school JLo. To be clear, I don’t think this look would work for just any formal occasion (and if Forever 21 or H&M comes out with a look-for-less version, I’m not sure that I’d be brave enough to wear it), but it was a very refreshing outfit compared to the other expected gowns or minis that we usually see on the carpet. And it has two editors involved in a really fun fashion debate, which I think was the whole point.

HOT MESS: Alex Apatoff, Style News Editor: I can’t be “over” jumpsuits because I was never “under” jumpsuits (yes, Friends jokes, still as fresh today as they were 15 years ago). But I can grudgingly admit that in certain circumstances, on certain stars, they can look as fun or elegant as a dress. I haven’t, however, ever felt the need to see a jumpsuit combined with a dress. But Jenny from the Block has been answering questions I haven’t asked since way back in 1999, and this Atelier Versace look is no different. “What would a high-slit gown look like with one sparkly rogue trouser look like?” I never wondered, and here’s the result. Listen, I’ll give J.Lo points for choosing a risky outfit — but then I’m going to take all those points away for her “bronzer by exhaust pipe” makeup job.

With whom do you agree? Can this outfit be saved — or is it perfect as is?

We are perpetually grateful to stars who make interesting style choices. Without them, we would have nothing to debate in “Obsessed or Hot Mess” and our at-work AIM conversations would be so dull. Why, just in one day alone, three stars stepped out wearing items that had us furiously typing out our Feelings, and now we’re sharing those Feelings with you.
