How to Dress Like... Reese Witherspoon

By eHow Fashion, Style & Personal Care Editor
Being a down-to-earth and practical mom while remaining elegant and classy is actress Reese Witherspoon's style. Her outfits are always prim, proper and precise from head to toe. She always looks mature and refined while at the same time never forgetting she's young and sexy.

Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Look neat and presentable wearing cute twin sets reminiscent of the fifties. Wear them with everything from jeans, to skirts to chinos. Although conservative, they still have a touch of sexiness and can be worn anywhere from PTA meetings to out on the town.
Wear light colors. Reese is often seen in colors that represent a sunny disposition she has a reputation for. She mostly wears pastels, light pinks, blues and soft neutrals. She has been known to wear classic black on the red carpet on occasion.
Dress up wearing classic fifties-inspired silhouettes. Reese keeps it classic on the red carpet, even being compared to Grace Kelly. A-lined dresses are a favorite of hers, which are flattering on most body types. She is often seen in hemlines that hit right below the knee, whether wearing a dress or skirt.
Keep jewelry very simple. The only jewelry Reese is often wears are simple drop or stud earrings, a strand of pearls or a simple chain necklace.
Own the right sunglasses. Reese is all about sunglasses, rarely photographed without them. She usually wears Oliver Peoples sunglasses, often large with dark frames. Have a look at Oliver People's designs and find similar styles in cheaper stores.
