Every day we ask Style.com readers to weigh in on the latest trends. Whether it’s overalls, floral prints, or graphic tees, we trust you to make the call in our Look of the Day poll. With Resort and menswear shows in full swing this week, we’ve been spoiled with new trends to try. On Monday, our eyes were on crisp, all-white ensembles. It was no surprise that Edie Campbell’s sporty Hugo Boss Resort look won top prize—think of it as normcore at its finest. Narciso Rodriguez, Derek Lam, Rosie Assoulin, and dozens more are in favor of head-to-toe ivory as well. On Tuesday, we saw short shorts make a comeback for both women and men. Mary Katrantzou showed her trademark eye-catching prints on high-waisted, up-to-there mini shorts. Even the boys can try out the trend next season: At Calvin Klein Collection, Italo Zucchelli layered cropped neon shorts over longer boxer briefs. On Wednesday, we got into the Shark Week spirit with Jaws-inspired looks. Theophilus London performed at Philipp Plein’s Spring ’15 menswear show last Saturday on the back of a Jet Ski and sported an appropriate shark-embroidered vest (above). Mark your calendars—Shark Week premieres August 10 on Discovery Channel.

Whether or not you live according to The Official Preppy Handbook or have strong opinions about popped collars, if you’ve been following the Resort collections, you’ll recognize that designers are championing polos in a major way. Of course, the ones they’re showing are anything but basic. Jason Wu paired a clingy knit style with a slit pencil skirt to sexy effect, while Derek Lam riffed on the sporty staple by adding military-inspired epaulets at the shoulders. A pair of sunny yellow piqué looks turned up at Reed Krakoff and Band of Outsiders, and Nicolas Ghesquière sent a flashy lamé version down his Louis Vuitton Cruise runway. Polos are turning up in the streets, too, on tastemakers like David Beckham and Rihanna, who was spotted courtside at a Clippers basketball game in Céline’s ribbed Spring ’14 dress. Take it from RiRi, you can and should mess with a classic.
The Fall ’14 Ready-to-Wear collections are under way in New York, and will be followed by the shows in London, Milan, and Paris. Before the new clothes hit the runway, we’ve asked some of the most anticipated names to offer a sneak peek. Per usual, it’s a busy time for all—designers and fashion followers alike—so we’re continuing our split-second previews: tweet-length at 140 characters or less. Our entire collection of Fall ’14 previews is available here.
