The Easy Dress-and-Sandals Formula Jennifer Lawrence Wears Over and Over Again

This sunny yellow dress and simple sandal combination is so easy to re-create. 

If you’ve read, well, any article by Who What Wear UK, you’ll know we have a deep-seated love for dresses. From midi styles to trending mini’s, if it falls under ‘dress’ then our interest is piqued. So seeing our style crush Jennifer Lawrence wearing a simple dress-and-sandals formula on repeat, we knew we had to share it. And with the sun shining in Britain right now, there’s no time like the present to try out this style. 

Jennifer Lawrence proves this style formula works for day or evening. 

We love a good red carpet look as much as the next person, and Jennifer Lawrence has had some real stand-outs, but it’s her off-duty style that always seems to catch our attention. Considered yet uncomplicated, J.Law’s style has an ease that adds to her relatability, and more often than not inspires us to replicate her looks with our own wardrobes. As a moviestar, Jennifer Lawrence is able to dress in brands like Totême, Dior and The Row more frequently than most of us, but we can take the inspiration of her looks rather than exact copies (except maybe those Manolo Blahnik sandals that she wears on repeat). 

Muted tones also lend themselves to this easy style combination. 

This style works for day, work, evening and is also a simple formula for a chic wedding-guest look. And the only thing we love more than a versatile look, is one that’s easy to recreate. Win-win.
