What’s black and white and tacky all over? This horrible outfit! Amber Tamblyn looks overdone in too much of a good thing. Black tights always look odd in the summertime, and the jazz shoes are the cherry on top of this overkill look. Getty Images
The fix: Lose the tacky tights and shoes
Make like it’s summer and lose the nylons, and those oxfords can go too. To keep the look simple, these oxfords by Zucca are clear, so Amber would achieve the same menswear-chic style without adding even more colour to the jumble; they would have saved the look. Lagarconne.com
I’m a huge fan of the exposed sliver-of-a-midriff trend that’s happening, but if Leigh’s bra top here didn’t match her skirt ─ it would have looked like she forgot to put a shirt on. Were bra tops ever cool? The cropped cardi just confuses things further. Are you cold Leigh? Then maybe you should wear a shirt.Getty Images
The fix: A loose-fitting shirt in subtle nude
Torn by Ronny Kobo’s luxurious nude top would keep Leigh feeling cozy without the need for that out-of-place cardigan. The printed skirt would take centre stage, and Leigh would have a sultry look, instead of one that screams “spring break.”Revolveclothing.com
Nicole to the rescue! So the superhero look is cool by my standards, but it’s probably not what Ms. Richie was aiming for. The moment I learn to appreciate the fanciful sheer skirt trend with all of its layered glory, this happens. The look is too top-heavy, and the skirt is entirely pointless.Getty Images
The fix: A sequin mini
Nicole’s glam-on-top look needs some weight on the bottom to balance it out. This gorgeous sequined mini from Ashish just blows my mind. Nicole would have looked like a killer knockout in this piece, and I don’t mean in that superhero kind of way.Brownsfashion.com
There are so many bad things going on here, I don’t know where to begin. The whole look needs an overhaul. The white bodysuit, the sheer sweater-dress, the awkward length and the hideous shoes all work together to make Rita look, well, kind of crazy.Getty Images
The fix: A glam sneaker
Assuming Rita swaps this getup for a cute white summer dress, she’s on to something with the shoes. A dress paired with sneakers can look chic, and the gilded sequins on this gorgeous Miu Miu pair would definitely take any summer dress up a notch.
Our southerly neighbours celebrated Independence Day earlier this month and I understand the desire to be patriotic. I think that donning a flag-print cape and covering yourself in temporary, patriotic tattoos is completely acceptable, but this dress is patriotism taken too seriously. Flags are fun, but they’re not exactly fashion.Getty Images
The fix: Small accents with big impact
Wild themes look best in smaller proportions. A glittery clutch, some fun flag-print sneakers, or this scarf by Subtle Luxury would have been a far more fashionable way for Aisha to show her love. And hey, this scarf would look great with a sexy little red dress, too.
