The 5 Nicole Kidman Basics Everyone Should Own in 2020

Classic and sophisticated are two words that come to mind when describing Nicole Kidman's style. With some red carpet exceptions, Kidman tends to steer clear of trends and instead favors sleek, timeless pieces like blazers, little black dresses, camel coats, loafers, and more. That's why you can look back at photos of her from five, 10, and even 15 years ago and be forgiven for thinking it was taken yesterday. (Oh and her seemingly ageless appearance probably doesn't hurt, either.)

If you consider yourself a Kidman fan, you might want to start taking notes. While off duty, she regularly wears a handful of wardrobe basics that are extremely easy to style and that make great investments. For instance, she has been photographed at the airport in two different perennially chic pieces: a navy blazer and a camel coat. Scroll down to see and shop the basics Nicole Kidman wears on the regular.

Emulate Kidman and wear your navy blazer with a turtleneck and skinny jeans—heels optional.

Now that we've finally reached the cusp of fall, it's time to invest in a solid pair of ankle boots to last you through February.

Of all the outerwear options out there, we say that a camel coat is by far the chicest.

Compared to heels, loafers are more comfortable and practical but equally sophisticated.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
