The perfect summer dress is an elusive thing, but of course Lily-Rose Depp has already found her seasonal go-to. Yesterday in Los Angeles, Depp chose a floral pink slip for a hangout with friends that she’d worn out before. The flirty piece felt like the ideal choice for a free-wheeling day of flea market finds and ice cream, but the pointed addition of two Chanel accessories—a Depp signature—brought grown-up polish to an otherwise casual outfit. The red strappy sandals and coordinating mini backpack provided a fun pop of color, while oversize shades gave a touch of It girl glamour.
This isn’t the first time Depp has relied on Chanel to spice up her favorite frock. Back in May, she brought the same dress to attend the house’s Métiers d’Art show in Tokyo, pairing it with black Mary Janes and a matching pack. The stealth accessories switch dressed up the final ensemble in a way that worked for the high-fashion event, while the color-coordination looked as smart in black as it did in red. Chanel backpacks and cute flats are on constant rotation in Depp’s wardrobe, but the current conversation around the politics of outfit repeating makes her styling trick feel all the more relevant. Something as simple as adjusting the shade of your add-ons can yield a completely different vibe—something to keep in mind when you find a dress worth wearing all summer long.
