Emma Roberts’ Smocked Midi Dress Will Keep You Cool On The Hottest Summer Days
Summer may be winding down, but the super-hot days aren't over just yet. And while sure, fall fashion is likely starting to take over your Instagram feed as brands gear up for the new season, you can certainly expect another four-plus weeks of solid summer looks, courtesy of your favorite Hollywood A-listers. The latest celeb to leave an extra-stylish street-style mark? Emma Roberts and her smocked midi dress — a sweet frock that's guaranteed to keep you cool, even when the temperatures reach the upper 90's.
West Coast cool-girl Roberts knows a thing or two about how to beat the heat (and do so in style, of course). The 28-year-old spends most of her time in sunny L.A., where temps are consistently toasty year-round, and as such, she's long perfected the art of warm-weather dressing. Need a lesson in fashionably tackling the dog days of summer? Roberts has you covered with her latest off-duty look.
On July 31, the American Horror Story actor was photographed out and about in Los Angeles — with a coffee in hand and her boyfriend, Garrett Hedlund, by her side — wearing a quintessential summer look. Roberts has been quite partial to fun prints this season, stepping out in a retro-leaning polka-dot mini dress on Tues. A day later, she roamed around L.A. in a poppy patterned midi that you, too, can scoop up right away.
Roberts' printed midi dress, which hails from Tory Burch, hits on many of summer 2019's biggest trends. It features dainty spaghetti straps, is covered in colorful poppies that resemble a watercolor painting, and has a smocked waist to balance the breezy fit. What's more, it's cut from a lightweight cotton-voile that you will keep you cool on those balmy days. Sounds pretty perfect, no?
As per usual, the Mary Jane shoe fan reached for a pair of heeled ballet flats from Dior, accessorizing the flowy frock with a square-shaped crocodile bag by Chylak. Though she could have easily paired the dress with a raffia bag — a style move celebs have been taking nonstop this season — her choice of a glossy black croc-effect pick was a great one, as it added a dash of edge.
