In last weeks’s Style Icon series I featured Michelle Obama. Today, I’m featuring Jennifer Aniston.
First it was “The Rachel”, her 1990s haircut that made scissors snip across a nation of copycats. Then came her flawless fashion choices. Season after season, Jennifer Aniston makes a statement with her sporty sensibility. Jenifer is the girl next door, but all grown up! Here’s how to embody her casual, California style:
Knack for Neutrals
Jen likes a natural look so stocks her closet with neutral colors like white, denim blue, grey, taupe, navy, and of course, black. Neutrals are an effortless choice and can mix and match with ease. If you use the same palette, you never need to worry about clashing! Combining neutrals also creates a very relaxed, laid back look.
Jennifer Aniston is most often caught by the paparazzi in well-worn jeans, flats and a simple tee. Her go-to bottoms are usually a touch faded, and a classic boot-cut style. By building your outfits around a laid-back piece like this, you’ll automatically have an effortless vibe. Pair them with pumps to glam it up a bit, or stick with flats for classic Aniston style!
In keeping with her sporty aesthetic, Jen wears few accessories. To mimic her look, try an oversized, athletic watch, or a small charm on a chain. She typically wears one low-key piece of jewelry per outfit. You could also opt for sleek geometric earrings or a single, polished bangle, both choices Aniston herself would approve of.
Since Aniston sticks to simple colours and shapes, she could fall into the category of “boring” if she was not careful. She never does, however- because her clothes are always perfectly fitted to show off her toned, athletic body. You’ll never see her with gaping buttons or drowning in a too-long hem. Even when she’s sporting looser boyfriend jeans, she never looks sloppy.
Sporty Glam at Night
Jennifer’s red carpet dresses are always streamlined and body hugging. Instead of covering it up her enviable physique in long gowns she loves to highlight her hard-earned, very tanned gams, and arms on the red carpet in sporty, short, sleeveless cocktail dresses. By choosing clothes that fit her like a glove, her megawatt smile and personality become the focus!
Lovely Legs and Arms
There’s a lesson in this, To look sporty, sexy and youthful like Jennifer show off some skin. It doesn’t have to be your legs or arms. Just pick a part of your body you love like your shoulders or bust, or back, for example, and flaunt it a little.
Sleek and Sporty Dressy
When an occasion calls for more something in between red carpet and casual, sticks with sporty classics, like a simple pencil skirt paired with a fitted white shirt. Such tried-and-true basics are the calling card of her sporty style, so consider making them your fallbacks too!
Jackets, Jackets, Jackets
One of the areas where Aniston takes more style risks is outerwear. She’s often spotted in tailored blazers, relaxed moto jackets and denim jackets, too. To take her style for a spin, try a trendy topper in a basic color and perfect fit! Thrown on over an outfit of basics, you’ll look as chic as Jennifer Aniston herself!
