The timeless jacket style works for all seasons and occasions. The coolest way to try it come spring? As a coordinated short suit—especially rendered in a bright color. Paired with pumps, it's equal parts sophisticated and cool.

Make a Slip Dress Your Foundation Piece



It's hard to refute the allure of a slip dress: It looks great as a standalone piece accessorized with statement accessories (à la Emma) and can also be worn come cooler weather layered with sweaters, tights, and jackets.

On Emma Roberts: Topshop Satin Slip Dress ($130); Chloé Pixie Round Bag ($1490)

Pair Leggings and Birkenstocks

For a chill look that will never go out of style, do as Roberts does and wear your Birkenstocks with leggings. Take the athleisure vibe a step further by adding a sports bra, hoodie, and baseball cap.

Style a Leopard-Print Maxi Dress With Flats



Make a maxi dress look even cooler by pairing it with menswear-inspired flats. Her comfy leopard ASOS maxi is just $51.

The polarizing unitard trend feels a bit more effortless with a layered crop top worn over it. We love this ballerina wrap version.

On Emma Roberts: Alo Yoga Amelia Long Sleeve Crop Top ($60)

Double Up on Trends



Zipper detailing and body-con silhouettes are tricky enough on their own, so successfully wearing both at the same time deserves applause. Don’t be afraid to pair two looks you love together—just consider silhouettes, color stories, and fabrication to ensure the result is a hit.

On Emma Roberts: Alice McCall dress; Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandals ($415)

Rock an Easy Two-Piece
