As Rachel from the show Friends, Jennifer Aniston’s hairstyle (known as the Rachel) became one of the most emulated hairstyles of the 90’s.
Aniston’s style off-screen, however, has garnered just as much praise for its accessibility. So, what are the vital Jennifer Aniston style components?
The value behind Aniston’s look, is that she appears on-trend and chic without attempting to be on-trend or chic.
Every look feels absolutely natural and unforced as a result of her effortless Californian style.
Just check out the look below which is easy to replicate.
Beyond that, she looks put together in the most effortless of ways.
In this post, we break down Jennifer Aniston’s girl-next-door glam and put together a wardrobe inspired by her southern Californian style and charm.
How old is Jennifer Aniston?
Aniston shot into the spotlight with Friends in the 90s and she’s never been off our big and small screens since.
She’s now winning rave reviews for her performance in The Morning Show and, about to turn 51 in February 2020, she’s never looked better.
So, what does it take to achieve Jennifer Aniston style?
Simplicity and taste would be the two leading words to describe how to achieve the Jennifer Aniston look.
However, don’t let her appreciation for a simple approach to dressing fool you. Aniston is known for getting even her t-shirts tailored.
What she understands is that every piece must fit extremely well to be as flattering as possible.
Furthermore, if you look through numerous photos of her off-camera style, you’ll notice repeats of pieces combined in new ways.
She is definitely a fan of the capsule wardrobe.
Below Jennifer elevates a simple track pants and t-shirt look with a luxe, long-length coat and simple jewelry.
Building on these two pillars of taste and simplicity, the keys to channeling Aniston’s sartorial choices are:
Working with a very neutral palette
Aniston does not shy away from all black, however, the bronzy take to her hair, golden accessories, and glowing makeup help to keep all black looks from becoming too overpowering.
Appreciating denim and khakis
Most of her off-screen, streetstyle consists of tailored jeans and khakis that fit incredibly well. She pairs them with everything from leather jackets to longline dusters.
Part of Aniston’s appeal is how she exudes southern Californian warmth. She opts for bronze and golden tones through her makeup, hair, and accessories.
Putting a hat on it
She loves panamas, fedoras, and wide brim hats. They are extremely flattering on her frame and are an accessory that brings the whole look together.
Keeping yourself healthy
Aniston has the type of body envied by almost every age group. She is a big advocate of staying healthy, and wearing pieces that flatter her body shape. This confidence shines through whether she has on a pair of jeans or a $10,000 evening gown.
Knowing what suits you
If you look at images of Jennifer over the years, you will see that she sticks to timeless basics and the same shapes that she knows will fit and flatter her. But, despite not being a slave to fashion trends, she manages to look very current.
Get inspired by a Jennifer Aniston style capsule wardrobe below.
The Jennifer Aniston wardrobe
Jennifer Aniston outfits: tops
Jennifer is a huge fan of keeping it simple when it comes to her tops.
She’s often seen in a white tee, which she tends to wear with jeans and a blazer, as well as investing in other classics such as white vests and button-down shirts.
Day-to-day, it’s very unusual to see her in anything other than a t-shirt, vest top or button down shirt, all in shades of black, white and gray.
Jennifer Aniston jeans and pants
While Jennifer loves a bootcut, she is more often seen in boyfriend jeans. Her other signature look is to wear cargo or utility pants.
Olive green is still a neutral shade and, like your denim, will work with most other outfits in your closet.
A classic black or dark gray pant style is another favorite in the Jennifer Aniston style capsule.
Jennifer Aniston dress and skirt options
Jennifer is the queen of the little black dress.
I’ve seen her in so many styles over the years, and she looks great in all of them. But she also loves to rock red, and white, on the red carpet.
She often goes sleeveless to show off her toned arms and wears more dresses than skirts, but when she does choose a skirt, she usually opts for a classic pencil style.
I’ve also frequently spotted Jen wearing leather, to add some subtle sex appeal to an otherwise classic outfit.
Jennifer Aniston casual style: jackets and sweaters
If there’s one jacket you see Jen in most, it’s a black blazer. Her second favorite has to be a classic black moto.
Check out this similar moto jacket, like the one Jennifer is wearing above that you can pair with almost any outfit.
You can also take a look at the best leather jackets for women over 40.
Jennifer Aniston fashion: shoes
She was recently spotted at LAX wearing her favorite Superga lowtop white sneakers.
More recently, I’ve seen Jennifer in a very high pair of black stiletto booties for appearances on chat shoes and dinner out with friends. But I’ve opted for a lower heel here.
Jennifer Aniston street style: Accessories
Jen loves a good hat – either a wide-brimmed black felt hat or a fedora.
Her bag of choice is definitely a black crossbody style to keep her hands free. She will opt for a classic clutch bag for an evening out.
While the rest of her jewelry is low key, Jen is often spotted in a gold Rolex watch, but you can find styles to give you the same look without the same investment.

Jennifer Aniston skin care
There’s no doubt that as she enters her sixth decade, Jennifer looks incredible.
So how does she look after her youthful, natural appearance?
When she has to be up early for filming, Jen has said she is a big fan of eye masks.
While she admits she has had her fair share of beauty mishaps, she says she has learned to keep her beauty regime simple. She’s been using the Aveeno range since she was a teenager.
Jen has previously said she’s a fan of using the Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Scrub as well as leaving on the Aveeno Positively Radiant Hydrating Facial overnight.
She washes her face each day with the Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Bar, which she says she has used since she was in High School.
Jennifer Aniston makeup
Like the rest of her look, Jennifer keeps her makeup understated yet polished, natural yet classic.
She likes to keep her day-to-day makeup minimal, wearing a pinky nude lipstick, some mascara and a little cream blush.
