Style Icon: Reese Witherspoon

by Emma Leuman, Fashion Writer

2As both an A-list celebrity and a busy mom, Reese Witherspoon is under a lot of pressure to look perfect at all times.  Whether she’s on a trip to the grocery store or gracing the red carpet, Reese’s ensembles are always on-point.

This New Orleans native is an expert in effortless street style.  She consistently looks put-together while running errands, playing with her kids, or enjoying a day of shopping.  By incorporating simple accessories, interesting prints and classic denim, Reese has developed a day-to-day style that can be used as inspiration for many busy women.

Reese tends to gravitate toward breezy, feminine pieces, making it easy for her to throw on a few items from her closet and have them work perfectly together.  Short, girly dresses show off her tiny frame while giving her the appearance that she took time in assembling her ensemble.  By throwing a jean jacket over the dress, Reese creates an easy on-the-go look that can be mimicked by anyone in an instant.

Denim is a must for this style star, as can be seen by her innumerable paparazzi shots.  She favors skinny jeans, although she has been known to experiment with a cuffed boyfriend style.  Classic indigo and black are her main shade choices, providing a perfect companion to printed tops or colorful accessories.  The star is frequently spotted in denim shirts and jackets as well, lending a casual edge to any look.

Reese’s chic, casual style reminds us that to be put-together, one does not need to sacrifice comfort or functionality.  Her outfits are easily attainable, yet always on-point.  For a college student, this lesson is particularly important because it demonstrates that there is no excuse to be sloppy.  If Reese Witherspoon, mega-star actress, producer and mom to three children can do it, so can you.
