Like it or not, summer is coming to an end.
Not only are we going to miss the sun, pool parties and BBQs, we are going to miss the sizzling hot fashions in Hollywood. Not that there won't be some killer looks comes fall, but there is something about summer that brings out some of the most memorable ensembles of the entire year.
Summer 2016 was particularly on fire when it came to fashion. Back in June we saw Laverne Cox shined in LaQuan on the red carpet at the "Orange Is The New Black" season 4 premiere. In July we drooled over Ciara and her Roberto Cavalli gown at the 2016 ESPYS and in August we watched Stella Maxwell rock the MTV VMAs in a wild retro-inspired Moschino two-piece.
