Welcome to the semiannual awkward seasonal transition! Ya know, that time of year when it's still too warm to break out the chunky knits but not super appropriate to be floating around in a sundress? What's a girl to wear? 

Forever-woman-crush Rashida Jones to the rescue: Her laid-back style is always on point, as evidenced by this demure but playful look we can't wait to wear out to dinner with the girls. Here's how to play copycat.

The trick is to look polished even when casual. If you've got one statement piece (like some killer metallic shorts), offset it with a monochromatic blouse-and-cardigan pairing. Grab a patent clutch and enjoy your compliments.

Get the look: Everlane cardigan ($80); H&M button-down ($18); Ted Baker shorts ($259); DVF clutch ($124)
