When it comes to casual daytime fashion, minimalism is one of the easiest and chicest aesthetics to rely on. Just pair your most classic silhouettes together, plus make sure there are a few interesting details throughout, and you've got yourself a subtly smart outfit in a snap. If you need a little more inspiration, look to Emma Roberts, who is a pro at this style of dress.
This week, she took what could have been an average T-shirt–and-jeans look and turned it into something special. She opted for a simple cream long-sleeve tee on top, but on the bottom she wore one of our favorite denim trends of the year—cropped, frayed step-hem jeans from Mother. Those asymmetric hemlines just scream cool-girl vibes. To top off the ensemble, Roberts wore a pair of embroidered mules from Alberta Ferretti. This may be minimalism at its best, but it's definitely not boring.
