With striking sophistication, attention to detail, and some serious awareness of current trends, Emma Roberts continues to impress with her stylish fashion choices. While she's mastered a variety of looks depending on the occasion, there's a single outfit formula that she keeps coming back to. Emma Roberts' collared mini dresses are polished, playful, and versatile enough to be worn over and over again.

Whether she's attending a movie premiere, enjoying a fashion show, or supporting a friend on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, Roberts knows how to keep it short and sweet in a collared mini. A short-sleeve dress is a more obvious choice, but Roberts has dabbled with creating her own concoction by layering a sheer button-down top under an embellished frock.

The best part about Roberts' favorite ensemble? You can wear it for just about any event you have on the calendar. Make a sparkly mini work-appropriate by wearing it on top of a blouse and adding tights, boots, and an oversized blazer. Or, dress down a professional-looking collared dress by pairing it with patterned ankle socks, platform sneakers, and a cute hair accessory.

Ahead, find the Roberts-approved ways to style this wardrobe staple, along with The Zoe Report's favorite pieces to recreate each look yourself.

The 27-year-old actor attended Prada Mode Miami Night 3 on Dec. 6 wearing a black and white color-blocked mini. The white dress featured black sleeves, a black collar, and a traditional-looking breast pocket. She made the simple style her own with the addition of tall fishnet socks, colorful loafers, and a matching black-and-white Prada bag.

Roberts wore her sleek bob straightened and parted to the side, completing the look with an orangey-red lipstick. The American Horror Story star styled this outfit in an ultra-whimsical way, however, with the addition of patent leather pumps, a beaded clutch, and natural makeup. This look could work wonders for a long day at the office.

Roberts demonstrated how to layer dresses for winter with ease on Dec. 4 in Hollywood. The actor wore an embellished ivory mini on top of a sheer button-down. She accessorized with a neutral bucket bag and metallic pumps. If you're missing your favorite summer dress this season, this hack makes it wearable all year long.

Roberts walked the carpet in style at the Little Italy premiere in Toronto on Aug 22. In another sneaky layering maneuver, she explored a new take on a square-neck dress by wearing it on top of a textured shirt. Pair a sweater dress with a button-down for work, then shed your under layer before heading out for cocktails once you've clocked out.

Roberts was photographed while out and about in Manhattan in 2016 wearing a much bolder version of her favorite trend. This time she channeled the '70s with a mod-inspired printed mini dress, knee-high boots, and long platinum hair. Go all out go-go-girl by wearing a fun print with statement boots, or opt for a subtle choice by adding simple heels.
