Sofia Richie's Elevated Capsule Wardrobe Consists of These 8 Easy Basics

If there's one celebrity who has captured and held our attention this year, it is undoubtedly Sofia Richie Grainge. After holding a relatively low-key status over the last few years, it was her incredible bridal looks that catapulted her into icon status (and I'm still taking notes on her honeymoon wardrobe). But it's what she's worn since that has earned her a firm spot on the list of celebrity wardrobes really worth copying. Scroll through her Instagram and you'll find her closet full of quiet luxury investment pieces, fun prints and plenty of old Hollywood references, and even in her most casual off-duty looks you're guaranteed to learn a trick or two when it comes to making basics feel cool.

So what else can we learn from Richie Grainge's outfit history? Well, her stylist Liat Baruch has a knack for putting together well-curated, sophisticated looks that are surprisingly easy to replicate, and you don't need to spend four figures to channel her brand of modern It girl. Thanks to this celeb and stylist duo, we've swapped strappy sandals for closed-toe heels, invested in tweed and reintroduced halternecks to our wardrobes—not bad for an unexpected street style hero.

And whilst we refresh our feeds in anticipation of what look she might step out in next, now is the perfect time to take tips from the Who What Wear cover star's wardrobe to plan our looks for the season ahead. Looking back through her street style pictures and event outfits has brought to the surface some of the key pieces that she reliably wears on repeat, and I'm happy to say that they're all incredibly easy to shop.

So, if your future outfits could do with an A-list touch, keep scrolling for the eight pieces you'll need to channel Sofia Richie's brand of modern elegance. You won't regret it.

Style Notes: One item that never seems to age is the classic long coat. Whether you opt for wool, vinyl, faux fur or trench, the long-line silhouette always manages to make even the most simple outfit feel polished, and you'll often spot Richie Grainge in a classic trench with dressed-down denim or glossy leather.

Style Notes: Transitional weather can be difficult to dress for, but when you're stuck in between a warm summer and a windy autumn, one item that always delivers is a comfy knit dress. This one-piece wonder requires no ironing and no fuss, and with dressy detailing like a sweetheart neckline and one-shoulder cut, you can wear it during the day and into evening, too.

Style Notes: Sorry skinnies, we're fully devoted to loose-leg jeans right now, and so is Richie Grainge. Think straight-leg with an ultra-high waist and just the right amount of distress in the wash to look a little lived in.

Style Notes: Surprise! It's another vintage classic made modern, and at this point I've lost count of the amount of times I've seen Richie Grainge in simple court shoes. Take a scroll through her Instagram feed and you'll see the closed-toe shoes appear more than any others—a sure sign that the next big shoe trend could likely be this retro throwback.

Style Notes: Every wardrobe needs an off-duty option for laidback weekends, and if she's not in leggings, it's likely you'll catch Richie Grainge in slouchy cargo pants. If you'd seen the Y2K trend resurface but weren't sure how to make them feel grown up, take notes on this outfit styles them with a cable knit and trainers.
