In case you haven’t noticed, there’s one outfit that has returned to popularity (and it comes as no surprise, as quiet luxury took over last season’s runways). It’s an outfit formula that stars have reverted again and again to over the decades. Style icons such as Princess Diana, Kate Moss, and Victoria Beckham have affirmed that this look can do no wrong. In fact, it’s an outfit recipe that is sure to always go right, and there are only three ingredients: a white t-shirt, blue jeans, and ballerina flats.
Along with the rise of stealth wealth has come a new appreciation for this simple outfit formula. Below are just a few stars who have recently donned this trend, including Dua Lipa and Hailey Beiber, and an edit of the perfect denim, t-shirts, and black ballerina flats to recreate each iteration. While it may seem like a simple outfit formula, slight variations make this look feel versatile and ready for… anything. Get the looks below.

In the midst of her glow-up, Jennifer Lawrence recently wore a relaxed version of this outfit formula. Her slouchy jeans, loose-fitting white t-shirt, black mesh ballet flats, and leather crossbody bag create a casual look that still feels elevated and on-trend.
