Emily Ratajkowski, or as we fondly call her in our office, the It girl, is a constant source of inspiration for us. Her fearless and experimental approach to street style has a way of influencing our own fashion choices. She effortlessly crafts outfit combinations that might seem daunting initially but soon become highly desirable. Her latest look is a perfect example of what we believe will be a popular summer outfit formula.

During a casual shopping excursion in New York City on Monday, Ratajkowski flaunted a fun, asymmetric Miaou minidress that truly encapsulated the essence of summer 2024. The dress featured a striking tomato graphic, hinting at what we expect to be a dominant motif of the season: fruit. She paired the vibrant dress with green Reebok Club C 85 sneakers, showcasing her love for the brand's footwear and her desire to stand out in the crowd of New Yorkers who often stick to black. She accessorized with a simple leather shoulder bag, a gold choker, and cat-eye sunglasses to add a touch of sophistication and balance out the strong prints and colors. These understated yet elegant accessories effortlessly elevated her entire look.

Typically, we wouldn't recommend pairing a vibrant dress with colorful sneakers, but EmRata's bold fashion choice has inspired us to embrace it. If you're also looking to recreate her style, keep reading to find out where to buy EmRata's latest outfit and explore our selection of the best print dresses and eye-catching kicks.
