Emma Roberts loves Elkin. She’s modeled for Kara and Brit Smith’s LA-based brand, and is often seen wearing their easy pieces while out running errands. What I love about their Spring ’15 silk number is its nod to the current trend of dropped waist plaid minis. These are great for all body types, especially the ones in transition from winter to summer (and unless you’re an actress or model who needs to be bikini-ready 365, that’s pretty much all of us). Though the look is young and feminine, it can also be roughened up ‘90s-style with a pair of flat boots or a moto jacket. And it certainly doesn’t hurt that these breezy designs will keep you cool as you’re going about your business. Don’t get me wrong; sweat is in this summer – but only in the gym. Elkin Bassett dress available at Elkin.
