Reese Witherspoon is the quintessential All-American girl. When she’s not making the audience laugh in the ultra-pink comedy, Legally Blonde, or wowing the critics in dramas like Walk the Line, Reese’s off duty style is casual, chic and sophisticated.
As a mom and Oscar winning actress, Reese’s looks are all about functionality with a little stylish flair mixed in. We’ve compiled her top looks and fashioned it into a must have list for achieving Reese’s classic American charm.
Working Mom: Whether she’s dropping her children off at school, jet-setting to promote her next blockbuster movie or serving as a board member for the Children’s Defense Fund, there is no doubt about it, Reese Witherspoon is one busy working mom.
Because of her hectic schedule, she favors looks that are versatile and can go from running errands to running meetings (yes, she even owns a production company too). Her signature look is both accessible and stylish- a button down cardigan thrown over a printed dress completed with a gorgeous set of pumps.
Get Reese’s daytime staple by opting for this Patterson J. Kincaid Roxie Confetti dress, $110.99. The colorful speckled print and pleated detail at the neckline add that feminine touch that is simple, but sophisticated and easy to pair with just about any cardigan or jacket.
This CeCe charcoal cashmere v-neck cardigan, $139.00, is the perfect compliment to the color and style of the dress. Wear it to work or add a trendy belt, like this Motif 56 “Lauren” belt, $99.00, which has an intricate woven design, just like Reese loves.
To fully embrace the Southern starlet’s ensemble, finish it off with a great pair of pumps, such as Pour la Victoire’s “Irina” platform pump in taupe, $254.95.
All-American Beauty: There is no one who epitomizes the definition of All-American beauty quite like Ms. Witherspoon can. Reese’s go-to looks always seem effortless and quintessentially American. She’s been seen all over town sporting nautical inspired looks, taking colors cue from the flag of course. She’ll wear her skinny, ankle cut jeans with a striped nautical shirt; a combination that is not only uniquely Reese, but also incredibly chic.
This Banana Republic duo of a striped layered scoopneck sweater, $69.50, and white ankle zip skinny jeans, $89.50, paired with these Tory Burch “Eddie” patent ballet flats, $178.00, work perfectly together to capture Reese’s classic American styling. Perfect for the daytime and when you’re craving the occasional day out at sea.
Red Carpet Royalty: When it comes to classic beauty, Reese is at the top of the list. She perfectly balances current trends with her glamorous Hollywood flair.
When you’re in need of an evening dress, take a cue from Reese’s red carpet looks. Opt for that classically elegant style with a touch of color and subtle hint of sexiness, like this Aidan Mattox strapless mini belted dress, $300.00. The sparkling blue and silver sequined bodice with the ruffled and pleated silk organza royal blue skirt and ribbon belt embody Reese’s refined elegance. Finish the look with a strappy pair of silver sandals, such as these Charles David Women’s Chic sandals, $118.22.
Denim Darling: If there’s one wardrobe staple Reese can’t leave home without, it’s certainly her jeans. Just about every other paparazzi shot of her showcases her denim devotion. From skinny to bootcut, black to white, jegging to jean, Reese’s denim looks are always stylish.
Get Reese’s daytime style by pairing this pleated top by Gap, $54.50, with her favorite denim brand, Black Orchid. These Black Orchid Black Jewel Zipper Jegging in Midnight Blue, $128.00, are just what this style star needs when she’s out and about town. The rich dark blue color gives the jeans that luxury appeal.
Amp up the X factor by wearing clog-inspired sandals, such as these Lopran sandals by Guess, $125.00, which give you just enough height to elongate your legs and are also a fabulous trend for spring.
A lover of the messenger bag and oversized tote to hold everything she needs, this look wouldn’t be signature Reese without a designer bag to complete the outfit. You can get the look for less by opting for this Melie Bianco “Margo” bag, $98.00. The buckle and cross strap detail gives it that messenger bag feel, while the olive green canvas is a perfect compliment to the tote style. A two for one deal that would make Reese proud!
Ambassador of Style: She’s not just a Global Amabassador for Avon, she’s a fashion icon whose style captures that classic American charm mixed with ultra feminine details, making her the perfect representative of women ‘round the globe. Reese remains true to her style, whether she’s meeting with President Obama (yep, she did that too!) or attending a press conference. She’s perfected the art of using her accessories to update her look and you can too by incorporating these Reese Witherspoon staples into your wardrobe.
She’s a big fan of the fedora, so throw on this Bop Basics Small Brim fedora, $78.00, to take your outfit from understated to sophisticated. You even might make Reese jealous!
A constant mom-on-the-go and a paparazzi target, Reese’s style needs to be both functional (who can run around in heels anyway?) and stylish to ward off the fashion police. These Jeffery Campbell “Emma” chain sandals, $124.95, are the perfect way to marry the two daytime essentials together.
