Jodie Turner-Smith Has a Trick For Making Leggings and Sweats Look Like a Million Bucks
We can't get enough of the actress' cozy-cute post-pregnancy style.
Many of us have spent the past few months at home alternating between leggings and sweats. But, working those pieces into actual fashion-forward outfits as we venture outside? That's definitely a talent, and Jodie Turner-Smith has truly mastered it.
In the months since giving birth to her first child with husband Joshua Jackson, the Queen & Slim actress has stepped out in a variety of comfy-but-make-it-cute looks. Whether she's color-blocking, having fun with accessories, or trading a plain face mask for a fun, printed one, the star has managed to make all of her post-pregnancy outfits look cool and elevated. Doing that while dealing with a newborn — amid a global pandemic — calls for some major props, first and foremost. And secondly, it calls for taking some notes. Ahead, we break down exactly how to copy three of Turner-Smith's recent outfits, new baby or not.
Break Out the Overalls
Or, short overalls if it's hot out. Turner-Smith chose to style her own pair with a tank top, amping them up with a bucket hat, layered necklaces, and — the highlight! — mismatched Nike sneakers. This does not look like a woman who's losing track of time trying to get on a logical sleep schedule, which she very well might be!
We've invested in our fair share of sweat sets as of late, but a quick way to make them stand out (in a good way)? Adding a few colorful accessories, like Turner-Smith's bright yellow hat and pink ankle socks. This outfit says, 'my body has been through a lot and I want to keep it comfy, but you know what? I still know how to look cool as hell.' Absolute new-mom goals.
Remember the Power of a Hat
It's been decided: Yes, you can wear leggings as pants. Turner-Smith convinced us to trade a basic black pair for a fun yet neutral olive green, and coordinated hers with a simple, solid tank. Again, she used little extras to take her look to the next level and make it more summer-y, slipping on a statement-making pair of tiny sunglasses and wearing a large floppy hat, one of this summer's most joyful trends. That Josh Jackson (whom she "made a daddy") played along on hat day is just the icing on this cute, new-parents cake.
