Help, I'm 22, and Olivia Rodrigo's Outfits Are Making Me Want to Be 18 Again

Olivia Rodrigo's name has not taken a break from the spotlight ever since her debut single "Drivers License" broke records people didn't even think were possible. After her latest album release, Rodrigo has proved her career is only set to go up from here. While her music has transported me back into my teenage years—making me relive heartbreaks I don't even think I had—it's her cool-girl style that has completely caught my attention. I mean, have you see the "Good 4 U" video? Styled by Devon Lee Carlson, it's sure to be full of top-notch looks. She's always wearing It brands, from With Jéan to Marc Jacobs. In true Gen Z fashion, she also mixes unique vintage finds with new pieces along with comfy staples like Converse sneakers and chunky black boots.

While I may be a few years older than Rodrigo, I find myself taking style cues from her Instagram often. If you're also inspired by the Gen Z star's style, you'll be happy to hear I've rounded up all of her best looks below. You can even shop the looks, with similar pieces and exact ones in the mix.

On Olivia Rodrigo: Dsquared2 Check Print Dress ($976); Marc Jacobs boots

Pop punk is back, and Rodrigo is embracing the style. Think all kinds of plaid and platform boots.

On Olivia Rodrigo: Mirror Palais Underwire Polo Top; Vivienne Westwood vintage skirt; Magda Butrym boots

As I said, plaid is all the rage. Rodrigo mixes the grunge print with her sense of style, taking notes straight from Clueless.

This item is sold out online but is still available in select stores.

She doesn't always dress grunge. For her premiere of Sour Prom, Rodrigo takes notes from Y2K with a vintage Betsey Johnson lace number.

If there's a 'fit I'm copying, it's this one. She knows how to incorporate fun pieces like this Ashley Williams dress while keeping it comfortable with Converse.

On Olivia Rodrigo: I.Am.Gia pants

Like I said before, she's not one to shy away from prints. These I.Am.Gia pants may be sold-out, but there are plenty of other zebra options on the market.

On Olivia Rodrigo: Erika Maish set

I don't know what I love about this outfit the most—the checkerboard print, the slime-green colorway, the crochet, or the oversize leather jacket.

On Olivia Rodrigo: Heaven by Marc Jacobs Denim Skirt ($195); Vans Classic Slip-On Sneakers ($50)

While I'm a huge fan of Marc Jacobs's Heaven collection, Rodrigo's constant sporting of the line makes me want to shop it even more.

On Olivia Rodrigo: Prada vintage shirt; ASOS boots; Marine Serre top

When I was in high school, I layered shirts underneath graphic tees often. I'm not sure why I ever stopped, but after listening to Sour, I'm ready to commit to my teenage ways once more.
