You may think of her as that silly blonde-headed girl in Legally Blonde, but she is an Oscar-winning actress and a successful producer of several films. Reese has been absolutely killing it in designer dresses at fancy CFDA/Vogue affairs and movie premieres as well as in real life street style. She wears color with aplomb and the prettiest prints and loves a wide-brimmed hat—and you know what? They ALWAYS work because her wardrobe skills are par excellence. Glamor named her as a Style Icon and I would certainly agree
I certainly rank Reese Witherspoon alongside the Duchess of Cambridge as a woman who’s superlative style is a model for all of us. She has a way of creating style that we all can embrace and call our own so we can’t go wrong by following these style lessons below.
Don’t Underestimate the Power of the Bombshell Dress
Reese honored Matthew McConaughey at the American Cinematheque Awards and looked old-Hollywood glam in the process—thanks to her floral-paneled curve-hugging gown by Prabal Gurung, glam Veronica Lake waves, and a perfect red lip (and I am a hugh fan of red lips for old-fashioned glam and every gal needs at least one bombshell dress).
For a visit to her local beauty salon, Reese looked flawless in a white-collared navy lace-embroidered sweater matched with an A-line skirt and teal Manolo Blahnik pumps. Neat, put-together, and just about perfect (but not stuffy!).
Embrace a Pretty Print
For the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund luncheon at the Chateau Marmont, Reese chose a pretty frock designed by Oscar de la Renta, who had just passed. It was a sweet way to honor him without words—the designer served as a CFDA president twice,
Jeans Can Be Totally Flirty and Feminine
For another errand run, Reese kept it casual but elegant in a floral Tory Burch sweater, skinny jeans, those Manolos, and a Lanvin bowling bag.
Surprise ‘Em Every Now and Again With a Sexy Look
Hello. For the London premiere of her film The Wild, Reese stunned in a Stella McCartney gown with contrasting lace, sheer, and animal-print paneling. Because this look is out of her sartorial style box, it’s equally refreshing and she doesn’t need to bare all that much skin to look completely, well, hot.
Find the Ideal Dress Silhouette for You
While Reese rocks a pencil or tulip skirt wonderfully, the A-line is her best silhouette. And she rocks it time and again. Case in point: this printed fit-and-flare Tanya Taylor dress, Gianvito Rossi heels, and her trusty plush Lanvin bowler is ideal for a daytime shopping outing.
Rock the Power Dress
Remember the time Reese showed us how to wear a little lace dress in the fall? We’d wear this red and black embroidered look any time of the year. It’s bold and feminine but still authoritative. There’s nothing quite as feminine as lace. Embrace it and your feminine side will come out naturally.
Have a Go-To Travel Look
Then, of course, her chicer-than-chic (but so easy) airport outfit: a blazer layered over a soft gray sweater with skinny jeans and sexy stiletto pumps (because why not?). And a pretty solid argument for jumping on the wide-brimmed hat trend this season. It’s not impossible to travel in style…you just need to be prepared.
So I hope these looks have provided you some inspiration. Reese takes glam and makes it street style that will set you apart as a “put together” woman. Isn’t that what you want to be?
