Angelina Jolie doesn't need to tell us that she doesn't care about fashion trends for us to know that she probably doesn't care about them. The writing is on the wall. Every time she steps out of the house, she wears some combination of classic pieces, many of which she's worn before. Although much of what Jolie wears is designer, the pieces are so simple and classic that it's fairly easy to copy her outfits.
As far as Jolie's aesthetic goes, you've probably noticed that she wears a lot of neutrals, loose yet tailored silhouettes, and timeless accessories. If you looked at her outfits 30 years from now, you probably wouldn't even be able to name the decade in which she wore them. They're that timeless.
Even if your aesthetic isn't quite as classic as Jolie's, we're firm believers that anyone can greatly benefit from having some solid basics on hand to wear with your trendier pieces. Jolie sets a great example as to which ones are the most useful, so scroll to see the items she wears on rotation.
The Classic: Simple Midi Dress
Simple midi dresses in black, white, or tan are an Angelina Jolie staple. Since she's an L.A. dweller, she typically pairs them with flat sandals or loafers.
