Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Reese Witherspoon is Comfy and Cozy
[Welcome to Celebrity Chic on the Cheap, where our style guru takes a celebrity look and breaks it down for you, our poor college fashionista. What does that mean? It means that while the celebrities (Jessica Szohr, anyone?) are spending $5,000 on an ensemble, you don’t have to.]
Reese Witherspoon has been flying under the radar for awhile. I hate to think her time has passed, but lately, I haven’t been super compelled to see any of her projects (and apparently I’m not alone, if the performance of her latest flick “How Do You Know” is any indication…) It’s a bummer, but there will always be a place in my heart for the woman who so brilliantly brought Elle Woods to life.
And apparently the paparazzi is equally as enamored of her, because lately (read: since her engagement), we’ve been inundated with tons of Reese photos: “Reese walks with her fiance!” “Reese goes shopping!” “Reese drinks a latte…while Jake Gyllenhaal cries himself to sleep!”
It was only recently that I’ve started to notice her great sense of style. Reese has a grounded, comfortable, girl-next-door aesthetic. While not flashy, it’s totally relatable and always looks very effortlessly put together. And it can be done at a fraction of the cost.
This outfit looks so toasty, without being bulky or awkward-looking. This gray and black faux fur coat is both functional and cute (and, hello, CHEAP), and this super adorable (and thick!) ruffled scarf adds a feminine flair. Adding a grey tunic and some black leggings is a casually chic look, and add some sexiness with some basic knee-high boots. A to-die-for pink clutch adds some much-needed color to any otherwise neutral outfit.
This is the perfect winter day look – it’s simple, warm, and not at all schlubby, and when it’s -9183 outside, it’s pretty unreasonable to expect a ton more.
