If you haven't heard of her, it may be because actress, singer, dancer, and fashionista Zendaya Coleman is just starting to achieve widespread recognition for her talents. At the tender age of seventeen, the performer has already released a hit album, attended Fashion Week as a front-row attendee, and starred in a Disney Channel Original Movie. This is to say nothing of the Lifetime Original Movie she turned down, though she would have had top billing as singer Aaliya in the film.
Life is sweet for the starlet, and that joie de vivre is especially evident in her choice of clothing. Zendaya favors playful, fashion-forward ensembles which highlight her youthful, lively personality and her dancer's physique. So when she arrived at her father's book launch on Wednesday, Zendaya's ensemble was all about making a standout impression, from her Emanuel Ungaro ensemble to her Saint Laurent heels. The actress's outfit channels 2014's athletic trend perfectly, from the oversized tee with its striped collar down to her strappy striped sandals. Best of all, Zendaya's ensemble proves that a sporty chic look isn't difficult to throw together for summer. Read on for the four pieces you'll need to capture Zendaya's look for your next summer outing.
1. OVERSIZED TOP

2. SLOUCHY POCKET SKIRT
