Stripes it is for summer
Stripes are the staple of every summer wardrobe and Elle Fanning has given us a preview of what they hold for 2012.
In a photo shoot for Teen Vogue, the young starlet turned fashion muse rocked a striped J-crew dress and large sunglasses.
The box cut and elbow-length sleeves make the dress age-appropriate and ensure than it can be worn long into the autumn.
Topped off with a designer shoe, this little striped number could be worn to an array of occasions and will definitely be among those in-demand mini dresses come summer 2012.
However, it was perhaps the bubble-gum Carven dress Elle wore at the shoot that will turn the most heads.
With a pleated skirt, wrapped waist detail, and an exaggerated key-hole neckline, it is the perfect evening dress for those summer nights.
Elle wore the show-stopping number with a statement necklace from Marc by Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu booties.
