If there’s anyone who has mastered the art of wardrobe basics, it’s Zoë Kravitz. The actress has been on my Pinterest boards and Tumblr mood boards for as long as I’ve been interested in celebrity style, and I’ve yet to tire of her simple yet effortlessly cool outfits. If you’ve been keeping up with all things Kravitz, you’d know that she’s been stepping out in New York (with boyfriend Channing Tatum, no less) in outfits that have been making the internet lose its mind—this editor included.
While 2021 Zoë Kravitz is a total vibe, taking a look at her recent street style has inspired me to do a deep dive into the archives of some of her all-time best ensembles. After spending the morning going through tons of street style imagery, I’ve decided that, in order to emulate her incredibly simple yet chic vibe, I need to stock up on a handful of specific basics. Nothing about Kravitz’s style is particularly revolutionary, but there’s something so refreshing about the way she styles her wardrobe classics, and she’s inspiring me to revisit mine.
Ahead, take a look at my list of the best Zoë Kravitz–inspired basics, complete with shopping options I’m considering for each one.
