We all know Zoë Kravitz is cool and that her coolness was inevitable before she was but a twinkle in her parents' eyes. With actress and bohemian goddess Lisa Bonet as her mother and rock legend Lenny Kravitz as her father, it was already written in genetic code/the stars that her style would be effortless, her skills infinite and her wardrobe impeccable. It's not fair for the rest of us to be dealt this card, of course, but it does still mean that we have a fashion icon to go in the history books and provide us with some pretty great casual ensembles along the way. Recently, Kravitz has been hitting the streets of NYC looking particularly great, approaching her hot-weather ensembles with a laid-back attitude and using the kind of pared-back pieces we actually all have in our closets. No wild TikTok trends or challenging runway getups, just simple, relatable outfits anyone can get on board with. And, perhaps most importantly, these looks don't require an A-list budget to come to life.
From the slip-skirt-and-vest-top combo she's been wearing on repeat through to the below white embroidered minidress-and–Mary Janes formula, there's plenty of inspiration to take from this celebrity. Yes, she can do red carpet va-va-voom, but we will always turn back to ZK time and again for daytime looks. Keep scrolling to see some of our favourite summer outfits and to shop her capsule wardrobe.

Style Notes: Alongside what looks like a vintage dress, Kravitz's accessory game is strong. From the Mary Jane ballet pumps to her net bag and red scrunchie, this is a great example of how unique extras make an outfit.
