I am not a fan of Glee. By association, I can’t stand Lea Michele (especially after she took a Beyonce song and drained the meaning, angst, and soul out of it, but I digress). However, she is undoubtedly a high-profile starlet, and she has great style– simple, sophisticated and unabashedly girly.
I gravitated towards this ensemble, because I recently tried on a dress similar to the one Lea wore, but ultimately didn’t buy it, because I wasn’t sure how to accessorize it without looking tacky or utterly dull. Turns out, I was totally overthinking it. A little white dress doesn’t need a lot of decoration, especially if it flatters your silhouette. Metallic shoes are my summer go-to, and these strappy sandals are fierce. To add a little more flair, Lea went with a statement ring (here’s a closeup), which is ostentatious without being too gaudy. These three pieces combine to make an effortless aesthetic and an adorable summer ensemble.
