Sofia Coppola was all smiles earlier this week as she was spotted leaving ABC studios in NYC. The Priscilla director has been making the rounds, discussing her new film starring Jacob Elodori as Elvis and star-on-the-rise Cailee Spaeny as the titular character. Fans of Coppola will be flocking to see the film in theaters when it premieres on November 3, both for its compelling narrative, but perhaps even more so for its soon-to-be iconic costume design.
Coppola is, of course, a film and fashion industry darling. And, though she's most comfortable behind the camera, her innate sense of personal style is always a source of inspiration. The director's latest look, featuring silver cap-toe Chanel sling black flats, comfortable jeans, a long contrast-trim cardigan, and a simple navy jacket could just as easily have been spotted on the streets of Paris. After all, flats and jeans are a favorite outfit formula among French fashion devotees.
Ahead, shop a selection of similar, more affordable slingbacks, relaxed-fit denim, eye-catching cardis, and smart weather-proof jackets. Feel free to add personal accessories and make it a major main character moment, or keep it casual—with this outfit formula, there's no way you're getting anything less than two thumbs up.

If your style leans more towards neutrals instead of brights, opt for black-and-white slingbacks instead of trying to make a metallic work for your wardrobe.
