It happens to the best of us: we throw on a hot dress only to realize later there is no way to sit down without flashing everyone in the room, or maybe we’re so excited to wear our favorite sweater that we forget to put on pants. On that note, here are this week’s top “Don’t Show-cha Your Chocha” moments from red carpets, award stages, and online stores.

I’ve always had a problem with pants and skirts that come with a belt attached. I feel like these garments represent a significant step toward the downfall of civilization. I mean, if we can’t even choose our own belt and loop it through a few belt holes how will we feed ourselves and solve the global warming crisis? When I saw these shorts with suspenders attached, well, that’s when I knew there was no hope for mankind. [$137, Pink Mascara]
The stripe trend is obviously not going anywhere, since stores are packed with more stripey items than ever. I love stripes in pretty much every incarnation–thick, thin, vertical, horizontal–and I especially love seeing designers having fun with different color combinations. One stripe color combo I’m not quite sure about, though, is black and yellow. It’s visually striking, but no matter how chic the silhouette it always brings to mind the round bumblebee costumes of elementary school plays. What do you guys think? Would you wear black and yellow stripes? [$63, ASOS]
I was browsing a cheese-themed Pinterest page the other day when I happened upon an intriguing trend: the cheeseboard wedding cake. It seems that some brides are opting for an elegant tiered cheese selection in addition to–or in lieu of–a traditional wedding cake. Julie finds this idea completely repulsive, but since my significant other is a cheesemonger, I must say I’m pretty intrigued. Maybe it’s because I know firsthand that there’s nothing more romantic than a big ol’ hunk of brie? [Newport Weddings]
Kate Middleton visited London’s Olympic Park today to play hockey with the national teams. In the process, she showed off a pair of super trendy red jeans — and some impressive lunging skills. Also her hair was looking perfectly wavy and frizz-free despite the physical exertion, but that was to be expected. (Oh, and it turns out the Duchess played field hockey in high school — no wonder she looks so adept!)
As anyone who’s flipped through a fashion magazine in the past month will know, florals are really happening right now. The pattern formerly reserved for tapestries and the old pillows at your grandmother’s house has reclaimed its glory and is being worn in all its incarnations. One garment in particular became ubiquitous on the spring/summer runway, and now it’s popping up on fashion editors and celebrities alike. The unexpected rise of the floral pant is inescapable: they’re everywhere, so you may as well embrace it, even (and especially!) if they’re out of your usual comfort zone. Personally, I think they’re an awesome look, particularly when worn with an otherwise neutral, streamlined outfit. What do you think: would you wear them? If you’re looking to get your hands on a pair, check out my picks after the jump. Keep reading »
