Elizabeth & James presentations are always a treat because the clothing and accessories are immediately covetable--the sorts of things you really would steal right off the models' backs. 

For resort '15 the brand evoked a cool girl surf style that resulted in long Bermuda shorts and sporty-meets-chic dresses. Of course the accessories were off the charts, with belt bags added in to purse collection alongside the label's famous bucket bags in tie-dye leather and straw. 

Since we have to wait until the collection hits stores to scoop up the slide sandals and striped tops, we compiled the 10 rules of dressing like an E&J girl you can apply to your wardrobe right now. Find them in the slideshow and get styling.
