Often, when a celebrity causes chaos with an outfit that everyone wants to copy, it's because it's what we'd call "trend-free". That is to say, an outfit so timeless and so effortless that it can be easily re-created by us non-A-listers time and again, and is always going to spark conversation with some simple at-home styling. Sometimes you just want to keep getting ready simple and fuss-free, and celebs clearly feel the same, as there are plenty of trend-free celebrity outfits out there for us to take inspiration from. Better yet, they're all composed of just four pieces or less (give or take a handbag).
The beauty of an understated look is that it's often made up of items we already own and love, such as a great pair of jeans, a cosy knit, or oversized jacket. And whilst the foundations of all the looks below are timeless in nature, feel free to add some trendy elements (take Tracee Ellis Ross' Loewe bomber, for example) or swap in fun accessories to add a contemporary touch.
Intrigued? Keep scrolling for seven of our favourite trend-free celebrity outfits, as well as everything you might need to help re-create each look at home.
1. JENNIFER LAWRENCE: TRENCH COAT + KNIT + WIDE-LEG TROUSERS
Style Notes: J.Law's simple errand-running outfit made us all sit up and take notice, and it wasn't because it was a look we'd never seen before, it was the sheer simplicity of it. We're willing to bet you already own all of the pieces needed for your own spin on this look, so it tops the list as the easiest to assemble, but still one of the most polished.
2. ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY: KNITTED DRESS + MULES
Style Notes: Rosie HW always gets quiet luxury right, and if you're looking for a timeless 'fit that always looks expensive, her penchant for knitted dresses and neutral colour palettes provides endless inspo. Thankfully, the high street has us covered on the knitted dress front, and with the right pair of easy-to-wear mules, you can rely on this combo for the rest of the season. Just add tights when it gets chillier.
3. LAURA HARRIER: HEAD-TO-TOE BROWN
Style Notes: The latest star on our style radar is actress and model Laura Harrier (just take a look at her recent looks to see why). If you only copy one thing from her wardrobe it should be her luxe colour blocking. Whether she's wearing head-to-toe cream, black or seasonal brown, layering different shades of the same colour palette is the easiest way to make your outfit look instantly rich.
4. SOFIA RICHIE GRAINGE: BOMBER JACKET + WHITE TEE + JEANS
5. KATIE HOLMES: TURTLENECK + BLAZER + JEANS

Style Notes: We've been keeping tabs on Katie Holmes' street style for quite some time, and her casual looks always outshine her red-carpet moments. Once again, a turtleneck worn with a blazer might not be anything groundbreaking, but it's one of the few smart pairings you could wear for the next ten years without ever having to worry about looking "dated".
6. TRACEE ELLIS ROSS: OVERSIZED BOMBER JACKET + WIDE-LEG JEANS

Style Notes: Experimental dresser Tracee Ellis Ross frequently appears on best dressed lists for her fearless approach to fashion, and whilst she might put together a T-shirt and wide-leg jeans like rest of us, she makes this simple combo feel altogether different with a statement jacket and head-turning handbag. We're taking notes.
7. EMILY RATAJKOWSKI: BLACK MIDI DRESS + KNEE-HIGH BOOTS
Style Notes: The little black dress is a classic for a reason, and Emily Ratajkowski manages to put an autumnal spin on the staple, making the LBD (that's longer black dress), the perfect transitional piece. And frankly, any outfit that combines long sleeves, a ribbed knit and suede boots scores highly for us for the next six months.
