We’ve done the math, and sundress + sunglasses + sandals + tote = the easiest way to summer chic. Celeb street style favorites Kate Bosworth, Miranda Kerr, and Linda Evangelista are hitting the streets in floaty printed sundresses styled with all the right accessories. From tropical print to off-the-shoulder, here are 3 celeb sundress looks to try.
Tip #1: Get street safari style by pairing a palm print with tan leather.
Kate Bosworth made our Look of the Day list not in designer duds, but wearing a simple palm print sundress from H&M. She looked ready for a chic 70s-inspired safari while out shopping, pairing the beachy dress with tan leather Chloe sandals, a natural leather tote by Alexander Wang, and her ever-present aviator shades.

Tip #2: Don’t be afraid to try a midi-length sundress.
Think it’s all about the maxi and the mini? Think again! Midi-length dresses are making a comeback, as seen on Miranda Kerr while running errands in Manhattan. If you feel too covered up, look for a midi-dress that gives you some breathing room in other areas with cut-outs or a deep V, like Kerr’s dress by Nom. She styled her sundress with a navy blue leather Miu Miu satchel, nude Chanel t-strap sandals and Stella McCartney oversized sunglasses.

Tip #3: Show you're trend-conscious in an off-the-shoulder sundress.
Celebs have been baring their shoulders in off-the-shoulder dresses, and it’s your turn to try the trend. Linda Evangelista looked uptown chic while leaving a courtroom in NYC. Her pretty flowered Erdem dress had a wide boatneck which showed off her shoulders, and she expertly accented the look with a simple gold chain. The model added classic accessories like large oval sunglasses, black patent pumps, and a cream Chanel quilted clutch.
