Emmy Rossum's Casually Elegant Look
1 / 6
En route to the salon, Emmy Rossum demurely hid her pre-styled hair under a chic panama hat and rocked a glamorous maxi dress. Her daytime-drama outfit is enviable--so enviable, we found the perfect pieces to pull off the same great look.
Patterned Maxi Dress
2 / 6
We loved Emmy's maxi dress because it had a beautiful pattern, full skirt, and could be taken from day to night. We found the same great style elements in this dress. The pattern is subtle yet striking, and we can see this maxi dressed up at an evening event just as easily as walking the beach.

Want a chic way to keep the sun off? Meet the baseball cap's much more sophisticated counterpart--the panama hat. Cute hats are often the perfect pairing with maxi dresses, which can be challenging to style. Let the dress speak for itself while rocking a cool summer accessory.
Braided Wedge Sandal

The wedge may be the perfect shoe--it can be dressed up or down, and is so much more comfortable than towering, spindly stilettos. Great for adding a little height under maxi dresses, or for adding a girly touch to your favorite boyfriend jeans, wedges can be the finishing touch to your warm-weather duds.

Cobalt blues have been on trend for years--whether it's a sassy high heel or a statement bag, blue has been a trusted for an outfit-making pop of color. Investing in a bright, yet useful, bag like this one from Marc Jacobs can be great for those who'd like to add more color to their wardrobe without having to refigure their favorite ensembles. Just grab your bag and go!

While trendy shades are fun to try for a season, there's nothing like a pair of classic sunglasses to last you through the years. Go-with-everything tortoiseshell frames in an universally-flattering shape are a great choice, for any season or mood.
