Yesterday's Elizabeth and James presentation epitomized all of our summer daydreams, incarnate. There were models chilling against surfboards. There was pressed mint, watermelon, and citrus juice. There were mesh tops, culottes, and swingy skirts. And yes, there were Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

For spring the twins looked toward their California roots for sartorial inspiration, mixing things up with sophisticated separates like blazers, as well as moden essentials like bandeaus and sheer skirts. The clothing was cute on its own (as always), but the thing that really drove the collection home? Its quintessential laid-back, cool girl attitude that derived from easy, unexpected styling. Since we want to steal these outfit ideas immediately--and you will, too-- we narrowed down Elizabeth and James spring '15 into some easy dressing tips (you're welcome!).
