Some people are blessed with personal style that’s so good, trends are created in their likeness. Enter: “Ticket to Paradise” actress Julia Roberts in the ’90s. And since street style and runway trends alike are channeling a decidedly ’90s spirit as of late, why not look to Roberts’ long roster of iconic ensembles for a little wardrobe inspiration?
Think of that memorable blazer, white tee, and slim-fit denim Roberts wears at the end of “Pretty Woman,” or the vintage paparazzi shots of the star hailing a cab in a ditsy-print, floral dress, and ankle boots; cropped tee and wide-leg pants; or perfectly worn-in and distressed, oversize denim jacket and cowboy boots.
Much the way Princess Diana’s biker shorts and trainers have become a ubiquitous fashion reference — inspiring looks from the likes of Hailey Bieber — Roberts’ go-to pieces from the ’90s are a style mood all their own.
Ready to reveal your inner pretty woman? Ahead, we’ve pulled together our favorite Julia Roberts fashion dupes — the ones representative of her cool, pared-down personal take on denim, tailored menswear, and even event dressing. Over the years, her red carpet looks have included everything, from knee-length pencil skirts and strappy sandals to layered slip dresses and platform slides.
Keep scrolling to take cues from the movie star who did ’90s fashion best, all while reminiscing about her most memorable outings. Then, shop a selection of editor picks that would surely get Roberts’ style seal of approval.
