While most eyes are on the one-of-kind gowns gracing the world’s most glamorous red carpet in Cannes, the pared-back outfits that celebs are wearing around town are also worthy of a closer examination. As we all prepare to make this summer one of our most stylish ones yet, those elevated-casual moments offer a chic lesson in dressing to impress.

So far, Anya Taylor-Joy has been serving nonstop in everything from Dior ball gowns to dramatic Jacquemus frocks with trains. But the beautiful simplicity of her denim-miniskirt outfit is truly worth copying this summer.

In the same vein, the legendary Meryl Streep has become a sartorial source of inspiration, turning a suit into a coastal-cool look with nautical stripes. If you’re looking for refreshing ways to level up your summer outfits, consider the Cannes street style scene your number one spot for inspiration. Out of all of the polished looks, we’ve gathered the six best to make getting dressed to impress a cinch.
