Stylish sneakers, lived in jeans and heals you can actually walk in—sounds good to us!
It seems like just yesterday that a young Jennifer Garner stole our hearts on the hit TV show, Alias. Now a 45-year-old single mum of three, Garner has a Golden Globe and more than 20 films under her belt. And as her career has blossomed and evolved over the years, so has her style.
While it’s neither avant-garde nor trendy, Garner’s look continues to attract the attention of women across the world. Why? Because it’s relaxed and classic without being the slightest bit sloppy. Which is a look that actually works for busy women who just don’t have the energy to get dressed up to run errands or head to the office in stilettos.
But that’s not to say Garner doesn’t have a love for pricey, designer duds. Despite her affinity for the finer things in life, however, Jen’s style is still pretty easy to follow. And for that, we’re pretty darn thankful.
Here’s how to pull off three of Garner’s signature looks. Plus, how to build a more comfortable, stylish wardrobe around some of her signature pieces.

Get wardrobe staples that are as comfy as your sweats.
If you’re the kind of person who basically lives in workout gear—but hates the idea of looking sloppy—taking a cue from Jennifer can help you step up your style game. She’s constantly seen running around in relaxed boyfriend jeans, sneakers and casual tops (i.e. t-shirts, cosy sweaters or flannels like the one pictured above). These wardrobe staples are just as comfortable as leggings and sweatshirts but look far more pulled together. Stock up and you'll find the mix and match options are endless.

Mix black with pops of colour.
We love this traditional gym to lunch date look on Jennifer, and it’s super easy to pull off a similar outfit. Add points of interest to any black ensemble by investing in a bright pair of sneakers, a vibrant reusable water bottle, a brightly coloured purse or another bold accessory.

Invest in timeless transitional pieces.
When you have a wardrobe full of high-quality basics, you’ll never run out of things to wear. Every item Jen’s wearing in the photo above can be mixed and matched with a million different things. The sweater would look just as stylish with jeans and brown riding boots, and the pants can easily pair with a silk tank and a shawl for a night on the town.
