8 Totally Effortless Kristen Bell Outfits That Are So Easy to Copy

She won our hearts over with Veronica Mars, made us pee our pants in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and now has us laughing and learning in The Good Place. Kristen Bell has long been one of our favorite ladies to watch on film, but her effortlessly cool (and totally relatable) sense of style off screen shouldn’t go unnoticed. Here are some of Bell’s greatest outfits to copy ASAP.

Blazer + T-shirt + Bf Jeans

A wonderful blend of casual and chic, who knew distressed jeans and a Minnie Mouse tee could look so grown-up? Our favorite part of Bell’s outfit, however, might just be those bright yellow pumps.

Maxi Dress + Fuzzy Sandals

A structured floor-grazing dress can’t help but look fancy, but with a pair of cheeky 3D sandals, it suddenly feels right for an afternoon with friends.

Crop Top + A-line Skirt + Chunky Sandals

Question: How can you make a prim collared shirt, like Bell's from Emilia Wickstead, and knee-length skirt look uber cool instead of boringly preppy? Answer: Show just a hint of skin at your waist and choose punchy accessories like a bag that looks like mini luggage and chunky black platforms.

Moto Jacket + Slip Dress + Mules

The ultimate date-night look. A tough leather jacket tones down the sexiness of a silky slip dress, resulting in an edgy, effortless vibe.

One-shoulder Top + Midi Skirt + Clogs

Petite gals like Bell know that a full, long skirt can sometimes overwhelm a small frame. But by showing a bit of skin at her shoulders and elongating her legs with a neutral shoe, Bell makes this A-line beauty look perfectly proportional.

Get the look: New York & Company top ($45); Endless Rose skirt ($78); MIA shoes ($90)

Black Overalls + Bright Long-sleeve Tee

Overalls are a tricky look to pull off without feeling like you should be out in the fields or headed to summer camp, but Bell totally nails the grown-up version here. Choose a sleek black pair instead of distressed denim and opt for a jewel-toned top to keep things elevated. 

Get the look: H&M top ($18); AG overalls ($245)

Minidress + Ankle Boots

As a busy working mom of two rambunctious girls, Bell knows sometimes you just don’t have time to pull together a complicated look. Heeled booties and floral dress. Boom, done. 

Get the look: Reformation dress ($198); Stuad bag ($350); Sam Edelman boots ($160)

Sweater Dress + Over-the-knee Boots

The proportions of this look make Bell look about 12 inches taller than she actually is. (She’s 5'1" in case you were wondering.) The trick is to find a pair of black suede boots that hit two or so inches above the knee and a oversize sweater dress that hits another inch above the top of your boots. Comfy, sexy and flattering on all figures, what’s not to like?
