Jessica Biel Has Classic Style—These Are the Only Basics She Wears

Whether she's on or off duty, it's become apparent over the years that Jessica Biel's style is practically the definition of classic. She certainly has fun with her looks and incorporates trends into her wardrobe each season, but at its core, her style stays true to its timelessness year after year. We've been watching Biel's style evolution for years, and we get why she has such a rabid fan base of women eager to know what she's wearing on any given day. She wears basics that you'd find in your own wardrobe, making it easy to be inspired by how she styles them. Because of this, we were inspired to sift through all of her looks from the past few years to narrow it down to the 11 basics she clearly couldn't get dressed without.

Between her favorite denim style (any guesses?), a few staple shoe styles, and the jackets and accessories she wears with everything, there are a lot of basics to consider adding to your wardrobe here. Keep scrolling to see Biel's favorites and shop our pick for each style.

Oversize Denim Jackets

Biel wears oversize denim jackets with everything from more denim to casual dresses. It's the perfect jacket for her, as she spends much of her time in mild L.A. weather.
