If there's one thing I've learned about Sofia Richie Grainge in the last year, it's that she really can pull off any look. She went viral on TikTok for her quiet-luxury wedding looks but also consistently shows off her ability to style neon, printed, and feather-embellished ensembles just as well as neutral, minimalist ones. And her latest outfit is yet another example of her versatility and propensity to make really anything look elegant and chic. 

On Tuesday, the Nudestix beauty director posted a slideshow on Instagram featuring a mirror selfie of one of her recent fall outfits. The look in question was a simple one, yet it proved just how advanced Richie Grainge's style skills are. Why? Because it showed her making jeans, specifically very casual vintage straight-leg jeans, look equally as fancy as a pencil skirt, dress, or pair of slacks. I know, I know, she makes it seem so easy. But anyone who's tried to get this outfit formula right knows that dressing up a pair of light-wash jeans is trickier than it looks. 

Her trick lies in the pieces she paired with the ankle-length, mid-rise denim. Unlike a standard black blazer, Richie Grainge's in the shot is a tuxedo-style silhouette with padded shoulders and large satin lapels that instantly made her appear tenfold more formal. On her feet are simple black slingbacks with a not-too-high but not-too-low stiletto heel. Effortless and yet perfectly put together, the outfit is a true masterclass.
