Anna's dress has a fun, graphic print dress, which is a big trend this summer. Her dress also has a folded shape that takes the silhouette away from stomach, making it a great shape to steal if you're trying to camouflage a little extra weight in your midsection. Online superstore ASOS has a number of great, affordable options including the Rare Foil Leopard Print Dress ($37.61 on sale from $76.92) and the Vero Moda Print Peplum Dress ($30.77 on sale from $59.83).


Give your feet some intrigue with some seriously strappy sandals. Get an instant, chic boost with sky high heels such as Forever 21's Criss Cross Platform Pumps ($24.80).

Anna glams it up by accessorizing with a shiny, silver necklace. Since the dress is already so busy, keep the accessories uncomplicated with a solid-colored, metallic necklace. Try Tuleste Market's Macaroni Necklace ($115), which has a gorgeous yet simple spiral shape.

While Anna rocks her dress da sola, consider adding a blazer to finish off your look. Layering with a blazer is right on trend and is a great way to add warmth without sacrificing style. Look for either a long, loose blazer or a fitted, cropped one. A long, loose blazer will give you a more casual, youthful look. Try one like the Boyfriend blazer in cotton twill from Victoria's Secret ($68 on sale from $78). For a more formal, sophisticated look, go for a fitted, cropped blazer such as the Cropped Tuxedo-Style Jacket ($19.93 on sale from $39.87).
