Rachel Bilson had her biggest break by playing Summer Roberts in the teen drama series, The O.C., over a decade ago. Not only did it help her land more acting roles, it also launched her status as a fashion icon.
If you’ve been following her career, I’m pretty sure you’ve seen episodes of her TV series, Hart of Dixie, and loved it. Aside from the charm of a small town setting (where the characters talk as if they’re yodeling) and the hot leading men, you will find yourself pausing every once in a while to take screen shots of her outfits.
We undoubtedly covet her on-screen and red carpet wardrobe, but we find her street-style choices as irresistible. She radiates a laid-back yet jazzy vibe – quite an interesting contradiction to her very youthful and pretty face.
As evidenced by these paparazzi shots, Rachel is a tough chick underneath her girly physique.
Fancy her style? Good news! You only need five pieces to steal her look.
A huge population of the Pinays would rejoice to know that boyfriend jeans aren’t for long-legged girls only. It’s a surprise how a pair of awkward-fitting pants suits Rachel’s petite frame.
Rachel’s style can’t stress any further how important it is to invest in basics like plain and striped tees. These become the solid foundation of your outfits without you noticing, and no one will judge even if you wear it a hundred times.
If you’re going for lax and easygoing, pull out a cardigan from your pile. To upgrade your outfit to something more smart looking though, a tailored jacket is your best option.
To complete this understated yet badass look, strut with a pair of stylish heeled-ankle boots. Even if you’re wearing baggy boyfriend jeans, you’ll still feel womanly hearing the rhythmic clacking when you walk.
Lastly, accessorize…but only to a minimum. Stick to pieces like a bag – not a purse – that carries things every woman should have all the time and a classic pair of sunnies. Prints are also best worn in the form of a scarf.
A true style icon isn’t only able to rock Valentino gowns on gala nights. Like Rachel Bilson, she should radiate a strong character even when she’s just running to the nearest grocery to replenish her fresh milk supply or dropping by a fast food chain to satisfy her greasy food craving.
