There is no denying that 2020 was a year for the books. While the year brought immense challenges, it also fostered a newfound energy to reflect, retreat to the basics, and embrace the things that make us genuinely happy. For me, it was fashion that brought joy to my days—whether it was through a feeling of escapism by dressing up rather than staying in my pajamas or browsing Instagram to look to my favorite celebs for outfit inspiration. And though there were fewer extravagant red carpet ensembles this year (but some amazing virtual ones), celebrities sported effortlessly cool looks in 2020, complete with a mask.
From Yara Shahidi wearing a relaxed gray suit paired with a peek-a-boo cutout turtleneck to Kendall Jenner leaning into winter whites in a monochromatic look, celebs epitomized this new hybrid outfit that is at-home approved yet still incredibly chic to wear out. This year celebrities traded dramatic gowns and sequins for trousers and sneakers, and I am more than okay with that. Keep scrolling to see the best celeb outfits of 2020, according to yours truly.

On Yara Shahidi: Missoni suit
Yara Shahidi proves that the perfect grey suit does exist.
Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber make a strong case for high-waisted denim paired with skimpy, yet sophisticated, crop tops.
Yes, I am a TikTok fan. Yes, I remember the exact moment Addison Rae wore this look. And yes, I am still obsessed.
There's no denying full-leather loos were a major fall fashion trend. Take a styling cue from Kim Kardashian and keep it in the neutral color family.
