Come See the Reese Witherspoon Outfit That Just Gave Us Major Elle Woods Vibes
How kind of celebrities to indulge us every now and then, bringing a beloved character back to life through an everyday style choice. Case in point: Reese Witherspoon just gave us her best Elle Woods circa Harvard Law School. The actress battled rainy California weather in a gingham shirt layered under a maroon sweater, pulled on knee-high boots and topped it off with the type of waxed parka favored by East Coast prepsters. Oh, and she skipped a purse in favor of a backpack. All in all, it’s Ivy League—as imagined by the world’s peppiest lawyer-to-be.

Essentially, this is just like what we’d see toward the middle of Legally Blonde, when Elle realizes she’s serious about law and leaves the fluffy pens and pink for more studious outfits. There might not be anything subtle about the peacock-green wrap cardigan and pink shirt she’s in, but the silhouettes definitely feel LSAT-approved. She even accessorizes with glasses.
More movie style we’ll never stop loving? Pretty much everything in The Devil Wears Prada. The movie just turned 10, and we celebrated by gathering some of our favorite outfits.
