How to Get Rachel Zoe’s Style
These seven fashion staples will have you looking like one of Hollywood stylist Rachel Zoe’s A-list clients for a fraction of the price.
Our favorite Hollywood starlets are looking chicer than ever lately, and it’s due to the discerning eye of Rachel Zoe. As the top celebrity stylist in La La Land, Rachel has transformed stars like Nicole Richie, Jennifer Garner, Keira Knightley, Kate Beckinsale and Anne Hathaway into style icons. Zoe’s take on fashion is to mix a little of this, and a little of that. The result is sophisticated meets a funky relaxed vibe; it’s very much like Rachel Zoe’s own signature style.
The star stylist’s fashion sense has become so influential, you can spot Rachel Zoe-inspired ensembles on the runway, in bookstores with Style A to Zoe: The Art of Fashion, Beauty, & Everything Glamour ($9.35, amazon.com) and on Bravo’s reality TV series, The Rachel Zoe Project. She recently debuted her own line of clothing, jewelry and accessories for QVC, so it’s easier than ever to channel her style. But you can find her style in almost any store by keeping the following seven Rachel Zoe staples in mind.
How do you pull off a fur vest? Rachel Zoe shows us how – she’s been spotted in the new wardrobe essential all over L.A., and she clearly isn’t wearing them to stay warm. She makes them work with just about everything – jeans, dresses, even jumpsuits. Her secret is accenting the waist, and length. The perfect fur vest is either a bolero style or belted, which allows you to show off your figure and avoid looking like a walking fur ball.
Rachel Zoe has said that she hates wearing the ever-popular skinny jeans, because they “just don’t look good” on her ultra-petite frame. Instead of giving into the trend, she rebels by wearing out-to-there bell bottoms that cover her shoes and almost touch the ground. As a huge fan of the ’70s, Rachel Zoe would fit right in if she time-traveled to the groovy era, and these jean picks will make you disco-ball ready as well. Just don’t forget your platforms.

Rachel thinks the Boho style is “bananas.” When she says that, you know she feels that it (whatever it is at the moment) is totally awesome. She’s been spotted both on and off the red carpet in flowy pieces that conceal her slender frame. This signature Rachel Zoe look can be flattering on anyone and it’s easy to achieve.
