We have a serious crush on Busy Philipps. In addition to being an excellent Instagram follow (her Stories are particularly hilarious), she’s *very* stylish. But not in an “OK yeah, that’s a great look, but only if you’re Rihanna” way. In an accessible, totally copyable way. Here, six of her outfits we highly recommend stealing.
Swingy Dress + White Sneakers
Honestly, any woman who wears sneakers (especially if they’re Gucci) on a red—or blue—carpet is awesome in our book. It’s comfortable, casual without being too casual and doesn’t take itself too seriously. Consider going with a slightly shorter dress, which will balance out the looseness of the silhouette.
White T-Shirt + Metallic Midi Skirt + Pumps
Continuing the theme of mixing dressed-up and casual pieces is this pretty combination of a pleated midi skirt worn with a plain white tee.You could, of course, opt for a dressier blouse, but we love how effortlessly chic Busy keeps it.RELATED: The Best White T-Shirt for Every Body Type
Striped Turtleneck + Blazer + Straight-Leg Jeans
You’d think a turtleneck worn under a blazer might come across as stuffy, but not when paired with lighter-wash, high-waist jeans and the aforementioned (and adored) Gucci sneakers. Topped off with a fun circle bag, this is a pretty ideal off-duty ensemble.
Denim Shirtdress + Neck Scarf + Smoking Slippers
In addition to mastering high-low dressing, Busy’s great at making her looks more interesting with the tiniest details. Take the above: a shirtdress with cute flat shoes is lovely, but a shirtdress with cute flat shoes and a coordinating neck scarf is unexpected and delightful.
Printed Button-Down + Printed Wrap Skirt
Mixed prints are the best prints. The great thing about these pieces is that they look as wonderful together as they do apart. Look for multitasking clothes that you can mix and match without a ton of extra thought.
Skater Skirt + Blazer + Chunky Boots
So damn cool. If you’re not totally on board with the girliness of a skater skirt, consider toughening it up with a sleek black jacket and lace-up boots. A little bit feminine, a little bit edgy, a lot ripe for recreating.
