Whether she’s working the red carpet or shopping with her kids, Reese Witherspoon always looks polished and feminine. In her recent film This Means War, Witherspoon plays a seductive woman-next-door who attracts the attention of not one, but two CIA agents —and off-screen, actress’ signature style proves she’s just as charming in real life. Don’t have a stylist? Check out The Fashion Spot’s tips for getting Reese Witherspoon’s look.
Party Perfect: Skip the accessories and pick an LBD with a bit of embellishment.
At the Hollywood premiere of This Means War, Witherspoon stunned in a sexy strapless LBD by Miu Miu and point-toe Christian Louboutin heels. The mom of two showed off her figure by choosing an LBD with a body-conscious silhouette. With the dress’ embellished bust, Witherspoon didn’t need a single accessory to stand out—take a cue from the actress and turn heads in an LBD with a bit of beading, metallics, lace or studs.

Retro Chic: Pair a micro-patterned frock with cat-eye sunglasses.
Witherspoon is known for sticking with wholesome looks that are classic and girly, like the breezy blue Kate Spade frock she was spotted in while leaving a church in Santa Monica. Pick a pretty dress in a classic shape and one of this season’s micro prints and pair it with cat-eye sunglasses and a structured tote for a look that’s just as fresh as it is retro.
