Well, this is definitely one way to make sure that you’ll never have to ask for directions: just wear them on your body. And while we doubt that’s what Katy Perry had in mind when she sported Carven’s amazingly intricate map-printed shirtdress in London yesterday, we’ve got to admit-the idea is still kind of awesome. The singer was in town for a surprise appearance (!) to promote her new film, Katy Perry: A Part Of Me and looked totally chic, wearing the graphic frock over tights and paired with black leather creeper shoes. She looked SO cute, in fact, that we’ve scoured internet and rounded up other geography-inspired pieces to copy her outfit. You’re welcome!

Crafted from silk and embellished with careful details like a knotted waist and a pressed white collar, Carven’s map-motif number is totally luxe…and unfortunately, the dress comes with an equally extravagant price tag to match. If you don’t feel like shelling out $600 for the original, then hit up Topshop for a close second. The retailer has just rolled out a $50 printed t-shirt, designed exclusively for the brand by indie label Tee and Cake. Available in both black and white and color, the style is so affordable you can even buy both. Or if you’d prefer to rock your directions on your legs, then Nasty Gal has you covered. These $38 silver mapped leggings are comfy, versatile, and a bold new take on the trend.

As far as accessories go, Lulu Guinness (otherwise known as the brains behind those adorable lip clutches and that quirky Uniqlo collab), now sells an tote stamped with the splashy graphics. Appropriately dubbed “The World Is Your Oyster,” the playful bag is the ultimate travel/work/wear EVERYWHERE carryall. Um, not that we really needed an excuse to splurge, or anything…Finally ,our last obsession comes from Anthropologie, who’s officially convinced us it’s time to invest in a summer scarf thanks to the new “Madame Explorer Scarf.” Channeling old-timey globes, the pale pink seasonal staple is is pretty much perfect.
After all, Mapquest is overrated.
