10 Ways you can steal Selena Gomez’s style

The former Disney child star has had a successful career thus far. After growing up with her as Alex Russo on Wizards of Waverly Place, the multi-talented Texas native has gone on to become a music sensation as well as a television and film producer. She’s listed as an executive producer of Netflix‘s 13 Reasons Why and her latest project is a feel-good romcom starring Stranger Things‘ Dacre Montgomery.

When she’s not making music or producing, she uses her Instagram platform (she currently has a whopping 183 million followers to date!) to vocalise social issues like #BlackLivesMatter as well as flex her fashion skills. This multi-hyphenate wears many hats, and albeit metaphorical, all of them are very fashionable.

Below, 10 ways you can steal Selena Gomez’s casual and cool style:

1) Go for gold

Steal the spotlight in gilded, sparkling threads! All eyes on Selena in  this high-waisted maxi skirt, which she paired with a camel-hued trenchcoat and casual black t-shirt for balance.

2) When in doubt, trust in neutrals

Selena dials it down in athleisure on her casual days. Here, she pairs a lightweight sports jacket (we love the rainbow stripe detail!) with breathable track pants for an easy, breezy OOTD.

3) Spice things up with shimmer

Perfect for a night out of painting the town red, Selena shows off her sultry side with a fitted sequin dress in a flirty shade of pale pink. To complement the low neckline, she decorated her décolletage with a crystal-studded necklace for extra sparkle.

4) Accessorise to the nines

Selena knows all to well that accessories are equally important in making a look work. To jazz up a conservative turtleneck, she heightens her OOTD with a pair of diamante earrings.

5) Be bold in clashing prints

Experiment with prints and patterns! Selena takes the plunge in florals and polkadots for a relaxing day on a boat in Italy. Steal a page out of her book with this style tip—clashing prints appear more harmonious when they share similar colours.

6) Go stealth in all black

When in doubt, an all black OOTD will always deliver. A black tank, a leather skirt and formal office pumps are three wardrobe staples that when paired together pack a powerful punch. Throw a padded blazer on top of that and you’re ready to take on any business meeting. Selena adds a fun spin to it with an oversized safety pin brooch.

7) Classics never die

Speaking of fashion pieces that always deliver, also trust in a pair of white sneakers. They’ll never go out of style and highly versatile. They can easily be dressed up or down, depending on where you need to be and the occasion.

8) Keep it fresh

Another key classic is a white denim jacket. The outerwear adds a sartorial edge by implementing a crisp and clean element to a casual outfit.

9) Let your sunnies do the talking

You don’t have to be an international superstar to dress like one. Keep the haters at bay and block the shade with a pair of statement sunnies. We love Selena’s pair of oval frames! We’re getting throwback ’90s vibes from this.

10) Dare to double denim

Double denim otherwise known as the Canadian tuxedo gets a bad rep. However, Selena proves that pairing denim together need not be a major fashion faux pas. The trick to nailing denim on denim is to match different washes and weights together. For example, a light chambray shirt goes well with selvedge jeans in a deep indigo hue.
