Zendaya’s style can best be described as effortless. Her red carpet looks and editorial shoots routinely (and rightfully) break the internet, while her casual style is cool and laid back. The past few years have seen sneakers, baggy pants, and wife beaters become the actresses’ everyday uniform.

While Zendaya makes any outfit look good, she tends to opt for streetstyle basics, meaning her outfits are fairly easy to replicate. These eight pieces are your best bet for duping the actresses’ suave style, all under the attainable price of $100.

Kangol Furgora Bucket, $70

While Zendaya usually lets her outfits speak for themselves sans accessories, she’s taken a shine to bucket hats, specifically Kangol’s Furgora line. With cold weather coming up, the fuzzy caps will be an accessory worth investing in.


Aritzia Sunday Best Honor Long Tank, $20

You can’t go wrong with a classic white tank, which Zendaya proves with both her premier fashion and streetstyle. She likes to pair hers with plaid baggy pants and an oversized blazer.


Keep it casual.


Converse Chuck Taylor All Star, $60

Zendaya takes a lot of style cues from her Spiderman character, MJ — or it could be the other way around, considering lead Tom Holland considers the actress “his MJ.” Either way, both Z and her movie counterpart are fans of Converse’s classic high-top sneakers, which they dress with jeans and a simple T-shirt.


Urban Renewal Remnants Plaid Puddle Pant, $49

These plaid pants could easily be worn on one of the actresses’ grocery runs or at one of her movie premiers. Style them with low-top sneakers for a casual look, or dress them up with heels and a button up to emulate Zendaya’s red carpet fashion.

Urban Outfitters

Pretty in plaid.


UGG Disquette Slip-On Flats, $100

Zendaya has remained loyal to her Uggs for years, relishing the comfort of the slippers between her acting and dancing careers. These slides are her current favorite, and fit right in with trending mule styles.


COLLUSION longline brushed faux wool coat, $60

Whether she’s donning designer dresses or a hoodie, Zendaya loves to layer her looks with an oversized coat. This jacket is pretty timeless, and is suitable for heels or sneakers.


Comfort is key.


Vintage Wrangler Jeans, $89

Zendaya knows you can’t go wrong with classic pieces, and there’s nothing more classic than vintage Wrangler jeans. Pair the denim with a plain white tee and retro sneakers for the full look.

Urban Outfitters

Nobody's Child shirt dress, $62

This faux leather dress channels Zendaya’s powerful luxe style, but can also be dressed down with Converse for a look more true to her everyday fashion. Just accessorize with the actresses’ preferred mini hoops.
