Channel Emma's Style While You Wait For 'AHS'

They say that lightning doesn't strike twice, but one look at Emma Roberts' Instagram has me convinced otherwise. The Palo Alto star loves to experiment with ensembles that are at once sweet and seductive, glamorous yet laid-back, and the post of her oh-so-enviable Jimmy Choo booties paired with an embellished, printed dress is yet another case in point. The look is further enhanced by Roberts' mussed locks, dark polish, and stacks of golden rings. The fact that the actress perfectly coordinated her rug, trunk, and throw pillow-adorned sofa simply adds to the alluring effect of her outfit.

It seems that as the actress becomes more entrenched in Hollywood, her slightly offbeat but always intriguing style becomes more defined. Captioned "Getting ready for Fall with these @jimmychooltd Vanish Boots," the snap captures a perfect transitional ensemble for the impending Indian Summer. The beginning of September is always a challenging time for dressing fashionably; should you throw a jacket over your summer slip dress or dive straight into cozy knits? So if the very thought of a transitional fall wardrobe confounds you, try Roberts' chic, insouciant look for a bit of inspiration.


To channel Roberts' edgy, rocker-chic look, choose a dress in a muted palette with a subtle pattern and light embellishment around the neckline. Make a bold, uninhibited statement with this Cusp by Neiman Marcus Printed Embellished-Neck Dress.


Try a pair of stacked-heel pointy-toe boots to replicate Roberts' look. Steven By Steve Madden's Klick Booties are both comfortable and chic.


Layer multiple rings or choose a daring knuckle ring like Elizabeth and James' Gold Berlin Knuckle Ring to add extra glamorous to your look — and draw attention to your nails.


Speaking of which, try Essie Nail Polish in Skirting The Issue for an autumnal burgundy manicure like Roberts'.
