The overall look is a fab mix of classic and bohemian aesthetics - perfect for summertime!

Recreate this outfit with a cute eyelet dress from ModCloth, which has a similar silhouette and color to the one from Tory Burch. Add a pair of neutral-colored embellished sandals to continue the summery vibe of the look. Next, accessorize with a tiered, spiked statement necklace. For the finishing touch, style your hair into a fishtail braid similar to the ones the models rocked on the runway.

2. Summer Chic

Tory Burch created a super-stylish play on the typical shorts-and-t-shirt combo in her spring '13 collection. Pairing an embellished and fringe-adorned tee with bold red shorts makes for a chic take on a timeless look.

For a similar vibe, take a not-so-basic white t-shirt with a cool studded neckline and pair it with some tailored red shorts. Add a pair of printed slip-on flats, as well as a classic straw tote bag. Slip on a pair of trendy patterned sunglasses, then accessorize with several mix-and-match rings.

3. Trendy Tie-Dye

While the Tory Burch skirt is hand-dyed, you can get a nearly identical look with this budget-friendly option from Forever 21. Pairing the printed skirt with a white tunic gives this look a low-key and casual vibe. The top also creates a sort of blank canvas for the colorful necklaces - in this case, more is definitely better, so pile on two super-bold necklaces. Lastly, pick up on the red hue on one of the pieces of jewelry by adding a pair of crimson-colored flats.
