If there is one thing that can be said about Kirsten Dunst, it is that she always dresses for comfort. That’s not to say she isn’t super stylish; she is. But the girl doesn’t sacrifice her personal comfort for fashion. Luckily, she has managed to combine the two to come up with her own quirky style.
Kirsten’s style is an effortless mix of vintage chic and modern basics. She has a knack for bringing out the best in a vintage dress, often updating an otherwise drab silhouette by throwing on a modern piece like a denim jacket or boyfriend blazer. Her unforced, natural aesthetic has resulted in Kirsten becoming the unofficial muse of Rodarte’s Mulleavy sisters. “She inspires us to be more creative,” Kate Mulleavy says.
As a muse to Rodarte and many others, Kirsten Dunst was a natural choice for March’s edition of It Girl. You clearly agreed, because she led our reader’s poll from the beginning. Whether you like her for her cool-yet-casual style or her quirky take on vintage, you’ll be sure to find some inspiration below. With that, we present some of our favorite looks from Kirsten over the years.
#1. Here, our It Girl heads out on the town with red hair and a toned-down, casual look. Her grey skinny jeans are paired with simple ballet flats and a slouchy cardigan for a great “everyday” style. For a stylish take on Kirsten’s outfit, pair BDG’s Premium Skinny Jeans ($54) with Splendid’s Hemp Slub Slouchy Cardigan ($63). Finish off the look with these Leather Ballet Flats ($39.50) from Gap and a skinny leather belt.
#2. Heading out for day in Hollywood, Kirsten mixed a 50s-inspired denim skirt with a floral top, then accessorized with a thin scarf and bright green Wayfarers for a modern touch. For a similar style, try this Chambray Elastic Waist Skirt ($24.99) from Arden B, paired with Topshop’s Lace Floral Shawl Top ($50). As you walk out the door, grab these Summer Wayfarers ($196.58) by Ray-Ban.
#3. As with all our It Girls, the ability to mix-and-match is essential. Here, Kirsten shows us how to work a vintage dress by pairing it with a denim jacket and a pair of leather sandals for an updated look. For a similar style, we love Stop Staring’s Vintage Dress ($142) paired with AE’s Cropped Denim Jacket ($34.95). Add a pair of Huarache Flats ($18.99) from Charlotte Russe and you are good to go.
#4. Here our It Girl provides us with another fresh take on casual dressing. Kirsten pairs a grunge-inspired plaid shirt with simple black shorts and a pair of peep-toed wedges. For a similar style, try this Plaid Cotton Shirt ($62) by J.A.K., mixed with Topshop’s Black Denim Hotpants ($44). Throw on a pair of Ucantell Peep-Toe Wedges ($69) by Bandolino to complete the look.
#5. One of the things we love most about Kirtsen’s style is her ability to pull off just about anything. This effortless ensemble combines a pair of high-waist, wide-leg jeans – totally inspired by the 70s – with a plain white tee, an embroidered leather satchel and her favorite wedge shoe. DVB’s High Waist Wide Leg Jean ($189) starts the look off nicely, especially when paired with J Crew’s Vintage Slub V-Neck Tee ($29.50) and Lucky Brand’s Get Laced Embroidered Leather Crossbody Bag ($119).
