Mismatched Bikinis, Cute Cutouts & Other Fun Summer Style Risks Worth Taking

Here's why crop tops are wearable right now (unlike the ones you might remember from the last decade they were popular): They don't bare that much. Think more a peek of rib cage than a bra-to-hip reveal.

Cutouts are omnipresent on red carpets these days, and you can get the celebs' right-now look with even a sweet keyhole at the bustline or flash of waistline.

You could go full Gatsby by wearing an all-fringe dress for an evening out, or just dip your toe into the trend with a bit of the stuff on a swimsuit or handbag.

The great thing about lace is its versatility. Dress up with a full lace gown, or pair a pretty top with a denim jacket for everyday gorgeousness.

We love the trend of mismatched two-piece swimwear for its total cost effectiveness: Try a fun combination of two suits you've worn in past seasons — et voila! A totally updated beach-ready masterpiece.

Look crazy pulled-together in this classic color combo that gets a summer update in sweet frocks and lightweight pants.

You don't have to go crazy with nail art to make a very on-trend statement. Try a mani in a fun color, with a contrasting hue on each ring finger for attention-grabbing accent nails. Tres chic!

If you're into conjuring crazy '80s excess, fear not: Updated for this season, neon makes a bold statement in little pops of color on shoes, belts, and clutches. Head-to-toe commitment isn't necessary, but it is fun, especially when applied to a pretty frock!

So gorgeous, so you — yes you! Anyone can wear this look, which is also easy to maintain since the color doesn't begin at the roots.

From colorful frames and lenses to wacky shapes, statement sunglasses are both totally on-trend -- and also a perfect way to get the sun protection you already needed for your eyes this summer.

Summer's coming, and that means it's time to bust out of your demure shell and get to risk taking. Here are fashion and beauty trends that you can absolutely pull off this summer.
