The hotter summer gets, the more effortless getting dressed becomes — or at least that's how it should be. Elle Fanning's denim dress and embroidered shoes made the best of sticky summer weather. The actress knows a thing or two about fashion and wasn't going to let the heat come between her and an amazing street style look. With a classic style and a quirky pop of personality, this outfit has the possibility to be anyone's uniform of the summer.
Fanning's adorable apron-styled denim dress combined the best of two worlds — the puckered and denim accented cocktail dress was perfect for staying chic while still keeping cool in the heat. But what made the outfit stand out were her fast-food inspired shoes that had just enough personality to take the look from cute to full on fabulous.
She accented the outfit with a bright red, I'm-lovin'-it bag that tied together the entire look. With a breezy outfit and an all-natural makeup look, Fanning might have just added the denim dress to my list of summer must-haves. The addition of a few simple bangles showed that this look can make a lasting impression whether it's dressed up or dressed down. Either way, this staple is bound to get you noticed for all the right reasons.
What makes this outfit even better is how easily it can be recreated. Channel your inner Fanning with your favorite denim dress and a quirky shoe and hit the streets in style. Whether you're a hamburger and french fries gal or a flowers and fringe fashionista, this look can be paired with any shoe that makes your heart sing.
