If you truly want to make a style statement, there is just one golden rule to remember: be fearless when it comes to fashion, whether that means wearing a haute couture gown straight off the Paris runway, or simply trying a new color or silhouette. This summer, one particularly bold mini-trend has been sweeping the celebrity circuit: the return of the midriff. Yes, dear readers, thanks to brands like Missoni and Marc Jacobs, a slew of stylish stars have been spotted baring their midriff. Back in September, Leighton Meester wore a printed Proenza Schouler ensemble to New York Fashion Week, while in April, Anna Paquin wore a revealing Cushnie et Ochs dress to the Scream 4 after party in Hollywood. Then, of course, there is the subtly sexy Helmut Lang ensemble Rihanna was spotted wearing while out and about in West Hollywood last week, not to mention the monochrome ensemble Zoe Kravitz wore to the Derek Lam + eBay party in New York earlier this month. So, there is plenty of inspiration to pick from. The question is: will you try the midriff trend this summer?
