Celeb Style Envy: Reese Witherspoon's Flawless Casual Chic
Posted on April 29 2015
We came across this photo of Reese Witherspoon absolutely nailing casual chic. We’ve featured her before as part of Celeb Style Envy, but we far prefer this look to the earlier one we covered.
What we love most about this is the way she dresses up SUPER casual pieces.
She takes a plaid button down and a sweatshirt jacket (a “swacket”, if you will) and turns it into a look worthy of strolling the streets of fancy Brentwood, CA.
To recreate this look in plus sizes you have to start with the right bottoms. While Reese picked a lightish destroyed denim with slight whispering and fading at the front of the thighs.
We suggest going with a slightly darker wash without the front thigh fade.
Fading at the front of the thighs makes legs appear larger and though many plus size jeans have this trend we prefer to avoid these. We choose a pair of more uniform mid color jeans from ASOS.

For the top we choose a blue plaid plus size shirt from Old Navy. The key to button downs is considering going up a size. The worst case scenario is a button gaping or popping open. Getting a larger size will ensure this isn’t the case. You will tuck the shirt in, making it more fitted anyways. Reese’s jacket is from designer brand The Great. It has a gorgeous inverted pleat back, that we weren’t able to find in plus sizes...BOO. We did find this great alternative from Nordstrom's private label Sejour. This jacket will work for Fall as well.
When it comes to styling this look for plus sizes, you can either tuck in or leave out the plaid shirt. Since our jacket pick is a shorter length, it would be a cool look to have the shirt peeking out below. Another option would be to tie the shirt right at the fly of your jeans.
We included similar versions of her chic Thierry Lasry shades (our pick is under $50!), her bag and her boots. Her boots are Rag & Bone grey canvas and we’re so in love with them we had to include them as well.
What do you think of this recreation? Would you wear it?
