Wear Your Summer Midi Skirt the Rachel Bilson Way

Although we'll never truly tire of denim, summer is our golden opportunity to bust out all manner of skirts and dresses as alternatives. Breezy and versatile in warm weather, a midi-length silhouette can be styled myriad ways for day and evening occasions. A recent look of the sort that's left us utterly inspired is Rachel Bilson's 3.1 Phillip Lim ensemble, styled with eye-catching metallic accessories.

While black might not be the natural "summer color," the actress brightens things up with a nautical-inspired sweater tank and glimmering, sky-high Louboutin pumps. The sparkle factor doesn't stop there—further playing up her silver shoes are dangly earrings, which catch the light just right. A tousled topknot and classic Ray-Bans cement the look as a fashion-forward choice for the season—and one we'll be copying ASAP.
