Those cheekbones. Those lips. That hair. Emily Ratajkowski is familiar to most as the star of the controversial "Blurred Lines" music video and the actress who plays Ben Affleck's student affair in Gone Girl. Model, actress, and recently, Bernie Sanders supporter, Em Rata (her social media nickname) does it all–all while looking drop dead gorgeous in easy, simple outfits you'll want to recreate all summer long.

Your elementary school dungarees never looked so cute! This look is the perfect summer go-to for an easy, comfortable outfit that works for wherever the day takes you. A wrap top in crisp white offsets a gorgeous summer glow, while strappy brown sandals don't skimp on comfort for looks. Top it all off with a a sharp shoulder bag large enough to stuff a water bottle and a book for lazy summer afternoon strolls in the in the park.

We're calling it - these will be your sandals for the summer. The flat leather sole and secure crisscross straps mean that you can trek around town without feeling a thing in these babies. Plus the cognac leather and muted metallic color go with everything from cuffed boyfriend jeans to pretty, white eyelet day dresses.

So maybe a Chloe Faye bag is out of your price range (cries internally), but you can get in on the 70s revival trend with this suede beauty. Real vintage leather in a classic, boxy satchel cut add to the appeal of this collegiate gem.

ASOS // $46
