9 Fashion Lessons That Prove Jennifer Lawrence's Style Is as Relatable as Her Charm
There's no denying that Jennifer Lawrence is a complete bombshell on the red carpet (that Oscars look? So good), but it's her off-the-cuff quips, funny one-liners, and adorably goofy demeanor that has won the hearts of millions—and why there's a tiny bit in all of that us that secretly wants to be her BFF. Off-screen and off the carpet though, JLaw's personal style is just as refreshingly relatable as her real-girl attitude toward, well, everything.
When she's left to her own devices, Lawrence prefers sleek menswear-inspired pieces to frills and streamlined classics to trendy items. Though, every so often, she'll bare a slice of midriff or play with a print or embellishment. And when she's feeling really casual, her comfort go-tos are tees and jeans (yes, stars are just like us).
We surveyed her street style and rounded up nine lessons we can take away from her mastery of down-to-earth fashion. From doubling up on denim to grounding dainty dresses, here's everything you need to know about JLaw's style.
Dim the Shine
For more casual events, JLaw has shown a tendency to favor minimalism, but for a touch of interest, she went with a bejeweled LBD. She made sure to play down too-much shine with dark embellishment, a black beaded clutch, and dark strappy sandals.
Anchor a Delicate Dress
Lawrence used menswear-inspired elements, like a sharp blazer and patent brogues, to ground an airy, delicate slip dress.
Give Doubled Denim a Cool-Girl Edge
Leave it to Lawrence to take the Canadian tux into cool-girl territory, selecting an oversize denim jacket, haphazardly cuffing her jeans, and styling the combo with hip downtown-chic pairings, like a slouchy knit beanie, retro round shades, a comfy black tee, and buckled leather sandals.
Opt for LBS (Little Black Separates)
Instead of a traditional LBD, the star took a risk and showed off a slice of her midriff in sleek, sexy black separates—a silhouette that she loves, even during more formal occasions.
Feminize a Menswear Print
Offset a traditional menswear print, like check or houndstooth, with a pretty LWD. Lawrence took it one step further and went for a light color-coordinated look.
Step Up Your Athleisure Game
Sportswear FTW! Lawrence's athleisure look is the perfect example of style and comfort. For the girl on the go, pair distressed denim with a color-block sweatshirt, a studded tote (to hold anything and everything), and cool kicks. As for your pup? Completely optional.
Bring Sex Appeal
Who says suiting has to be serious? Lawrence gave her no-nonsense suit separates a hit of sex appeal with a lacy black bandeau (layered with a delicate body chain) and killer strappy stilettos.
Go for a Crop
Oversized outerwear might be a current obsession among the fashion set, but there's something to be said for a fitted jacket to create a put-together, night-out look. Lawrence topped off her thigh-slit LBD with a leather moto jacket that defined and accentuated her waist.
Brighten Up with Peppy Prints
Break up an all-dark ensemble with an unexpectedly happy print, like daisies in Lawrence's case. Another option? Style a cropped top with a high-waist pant to reveal just a tiny sliver of skin.
