July alone brought out five of our favorite style stars sporting the trend. How'd they do it? Heidi Klum showed off her mixing and matching prowess with a striped top and Dolce & Gabbana's lily print piece. Blake Lively totally dropped our jaws in a bejeweled Burberry number last week and Hilary Rhoda went tropical in Clover Canyon's "How High" neoprene skirt. Meanwhile, Rita Ora and fashion show-frequenter Miroslava Duma turned on the sheen in futuristic metallic designs.

Peruse the pictures, you just might be tempted to try out this fresh new take on an office staple.
