Tommy Dorfman turned the cobblestone streets of Rome into her personal runway on Thursday. Using the scenic Italian skyline as her backdrop, the "13 Reasons Why" star posed for a spontaneous photo shoot while wearing a Simon Miller Stretch Asio Tank Dress with a thigh-high slit, which she styled with white socks and a pair of Nike Blazer Mid '77 Vintage Sneakers. "roma season II," she captioned the photos on Instagram, which show her in sleek aviator sunglasses and a high bun — a quintessential summer look.

Making the most of the scenery, Dorfman stretched out on the stone wall overlooking the clouded blue sky, working every angle of her body-con dress. Fully embracing her main-character energy (Lizzie McGuire on her junior-high graduation trip, anyone?), Dorfman also wore a gold necklace that peeked through the two keyhole cutouts across her chest. Together, the bit of sparkle made Dorfman look ready for a stroll along the Tiber, a breezy photo shoot in front of the Pantheon, or a performance on stage with Isabella and Paolo.

Recently, Dorfman also stole the spotlight in a shiny minidress for her 30th birthday. The sleeveless dress, which she paired with dark sunglasses, featured a high neckline and a cropped hemline.

From leaping for joy in front of the camera to strutting along the cobbled boulevards of Rome, Dorfman makes a strong case for the chic dress-sneaker combo as one of the best looks of the summer. Ahead, shop Dorfman's outfit — including the Nike sneakers, available in women's sizes five to 11.5 and men's sizes 3.5 to 10 — and see her transform the streets of Rome into her personal backdrop.
