Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a national treasure. For the last twenty plus years, she’s been making us laugh with her sharp delivery and once-in-a-generation delivery. Between Seinfeld, New Adventures of Old Christine, and Veep, she is one of the most-nominated people in Emmy’s history. Not bad for an age-defying woman in Hollywood.
To celebrate this timeless but cool leading lady, we wanted to emulate her equally timeless but cool look on the cover of Net-A-Porter. The leather jacket is also a national treasure, so it’s no surprise JLD wears one so well. As the star of not only this outfit but also your closet, it’s exactly the kind of piece you should be investing in.
Mango has a great affordable classic version, if you want to avoid any dramatic details. All-Saints, one of our go-to leather brands, takes it up a notch with their Balfern leather jacket, which has more hardware and a looser fit. And if you’re one of the few lucky people who can afford to spend three thousand dollars on a motorcycle jacket, then you should definitely buy this oversized Balenciaga one.
We’ve written a lot about white t-shirts, but you can never have enough. Everlane’s cotton crew is hard to beat, in both price and quality but J.Crew does a pretty good job of trying. Try their square neck t-shirt, which makes something as tired as a t-shirt feel fresh thanks to the unexpected neckline.
Finally, the jeans. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is rocking skinny jeans, and if you’re feeling that try these Good American skinnies, which go from size 0 to 24. If that’s not your silhouette, no worries. Everlane has a Cheeky Bootcut pair that prove why bootcut is coming back strong.
Not everyone can win 11 Primetime Emmy Awards, but everyone can look good in a leather jacket and jeans. Here’s to you, JLD. We’re rooting for you on number 12 this Sunday.
