'Jane The Virgin' Summer Style Inspiration That Would Let You Fit Right In At The Marbella
Are you crying a little bit on the inside from Jane The Virgin withdrawal? I mean, yes, Jane the Virgin just got its Season 2 premiere date, which is definitely a good thing — but does it have to be all the way out in late October? How are fans going to survive all of the cliffhangers until then? What, with the Sin Rostro-helmed kidnapping of Mateo, Michael and Nadine's carefully planned sting, and Rogelio and Xiomara's booze-fueled Vegas wedding on our plates, it's going to be quite the torturously long summer. That said, I might have just the thing to balm the cliffhanger pain: Jane the Virgin- inspired summer fashion. After all, we're well into summer now, and what show has better summer style game than JTV?
Apart from a telenovela-worthy tropical storm or two, it's basically sundress weather year-round at the Marbella. Whenever she's not waitressing, Jane seems to live in floaty floral frocks, and Petra's got the moneyed sheath dress look on lock. There's no denying the fact that the ladies of Jane the Virgin certainly boast quite the gorgeous wardrobe of clothes, so why not take a leaf from Jane and Petra's playbooks as you curate your summer wardrobe? Here are a few shopping options to help you get the ball rolling.
Jane's basically queen of the floral summer dress. Throughout the first season's 22 episodes, she wears countless brightly patterned fit-and-flare numbers, so if you're looking to replicate her look, that's definitely the place to start.

Jane typically sticks to florals and prints, but she's also been known to dabble in well-deployed LWDs. Case(s) in point?
Little white dresses have that old timey romantic vibe, which completely befits Jane's position as the virginal star of her own personal telenovela.

If you're ever looking to ensnare the heart of your soon-to-be-ex-husband (who also happens to be dating his accidentally artificially-inseminated baby mama), this sweetheart-necklined sundress might just be the way to go.
You're also going to want a fancy romper (and maybe even some formal shorts), because Petra's been known to rock them like nobody's business.
