Zendaya Wore the Jeans-and-Flats Outfit Formula That Will Never Die

Nobody does high-octane red-carpet glamour quite like Zendaya, but you shouldn't sleep on her off-duty personal style. It might not be as exciting as a dripping-in-jewels moment, but Zendaya's casual looks are endlessly relatable and easy to re-create, making them worth paying attention to. Exhibit A: The latest outfit she wore in Los Angeles.

Photographed at lunch with her assistant Darnell Appling, Zendaya made her Mother Tomcat Jeans ($258) look polished by pairing them with a button-down shirt, belt, and loafers. It made for an incredibly classic outfit combination that will never go out of style—promise. If you're ready to copy Zendaya's look, keep scrolling to shop for similar pieces.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 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 Associate Director of Fashion News (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.
