From a seemingly endless rotation of blazers and statement coats to cheery yellow ensembles and So. Many. Accessories., Emily Cooper has become somewhat of a style icon – despite blatantly going against the coveted French girl aesthetic.
While some critics have described the ensembles worn by Emily as “cartoonish” or even “tacky,” we think there’s a certain charm to be found in the Patricia Field and Marylin Fitoussi looks.
The bright colors and patterns not only make us smile, but exemplify the character’s spirit and optimism as well. It does, after all, take a certain amount of courage and self assurance to wear the sheer amount of colors, checks, stripes and accessories that Emily does.

Here are 12 ways to capture Emily’s sunny, eclectic style.
