When interviewed last week about my personal style I really did not know how to answer. I am all over the map with the way I dress- I have strong preppy roots but have grown into a more modern, funky version of that. But I find getting dressed to be such fun- you can be a different type of person every single day if you want to! However, lately every time I see Reese Witherspoon in a paparazzi shot I think “she looks amazing”- even in just a tee, scarf, jeans and flats or walking the dog! She mixed preppy and modern really well- in a very loose, cute way. Of course, she always looks fabulous when walking the red carpet (who can forget the Oscars when she showed up with those hot bangs and that long purple Nina Ricci number? Suck on it, Ryan Phillipe), but she obviously has great personal style when dressing herself- which not all celebs do!
Getting Reese’s look:
Who does modern preppy better than J.Crew
? If I could only shop at one store, it would be this place for sure. While getting quite pricey lately, the designs have been stellar. Some picks for the “Reese Look”
1) skinny dark wash jeans and lots of long cardigans.
2) Classic blouses with modern, new details
(I bought the blouse on the left in hot pink- it’s delish!)
3) Cropped jackets.
4) Feminine shift dresses.
5) A-line skirts and the classic black blazer
6) Flats and big, luscious leather bags!
From Martin + Osa (she’s been seen shopping there a bit):
2) Equestrian influenced belt
3) Pretty scarves to add color
Reese LOVES her Van Cleef and Arpels Alhambra necklaces- for those who can’t afford to drop a few grand on one- here’s a “imitation” :)
And let’s not forget her BEST accessory: Jake. :)
