Though you probably know her for playing Emily Fields on the hit teen drama Pretty Little Liars, Shay Mitchell is worth acknowledging as a style icon in her own right. With a social media following of over 15 million fans, Emily keeps her admirers smitten with fashion choices that are fresh, fashion-forward, and ultra-flattering.

Today we will be breaking down Shay Mitchell's style straight from her Instagram feed

A Trip to Cape Town, South Africa

Products: Pants - Tilly's, Camisole - H&M, Sandals - ASOS, Bag - Nordstrom Rack, Sunglasses - Nasty Gal

This recent Shay Mitchell outfit would be perfect for Spring Break - it's absolutely fantastic for a tropical setting. Here, Shay brilliantly mixed a camisole top with flared pants to accentuate her figure and provide comfortable movement while traveling. She added gladiator sandals, a stylish choice for light sightseeing or enjoying a resort and mirrored shades to protect her eyes from the sun.

Above, I've recreated a look that is perfect for a stroll on the shores of Cape Town, South Africa... or, you know, wherever you happen to be vacationing this spring.

In this urban chic snap, Shay poses in a stunning yet seemingly effortless ensemble. I absolutely love this because it's so easy for college girls to recreate: Here, Shay takes a simple jeans-and-tee combo and dramatically dresses it up for the perfect city outfit. 

To recreate this look, start with a simple white v-neck tee and black skinny jeans. Add black Chelsea boots for comfort, a bag and a scarf for color, and a fluffy faux fur coat for glamour. Throw on a belt and a pair of aviators to complete the look.

The following are some "honorable mention" looks to get your inspiration going. Shay is known to mix it up and the Instagram pics below show off her style's range.

This sultry and elegant look would be another fantastic choice for Spring Break!

Shay takes on NYC in four sexy, sophisticated outfits. Need I say more? This girl can rock it all. 

It's not every day you see someone daring to wear denim, florals, and leather all at once. But Shay does it to perfection.
