Rarely are stars just like us, but in the case of Kaia Gerber, we might finally be inclined to agree. That's because when it comes to personal style choices, Kaia's proven to be someone we can relate to. The queen of keeping it casual, her off-duty attire is usually made up of basic denim, under-$100 sneakers, oversized blazers, and Reformation dresses.
Best of all, she’s a fan of re-wearing her favorite pieces. This celebrity Gen-Z teen could care less about committing fashion "faux-pas," which is good news for us normies since it means her looks are that much more achievable.
Out of all the celebs we could pull style inspo from (and there's plenty of good ones), Kaia may be the most realistic bet. Her personal style strikes the perfect balance of casual cool and is a lesson in how to dress down statement pieces with affordable basics. Ahead, we've broken down four of the model's most effortless and attainable outfits.

Kaia frequently shows off deconstructed suiting at its best. Here, she manages to take all the business out of a pinstripe blazer by giving it a punk-inspired edge. Between the black ripped jeans, chain crossbody, and choker necklace, this almost feels like a reimagined 2000s-era Avril Lavigne brought to life.

It's hard to remember Kaia just turned 18. We didn't look half this chic during our own transition to adulthood. Yet even when opting for more sophisticated silhouettes, Kaia still manages to incorporate playful elements to keep her looks from feeling too mature. She pairs her plain tank tops with suede trousers and balances out a strict-looking heel with a bright and colorful blue baguette bag. Since suede pants aren't all that cheap, try emulating her look by experimenting with other materials like velvet or corduroy.

Kaia continues to prove she’s a girl after our own heart. A cardigan, straight-leg jeans, high-top sneakers… it's like she's in on our daily uniform. However, she kicks it up a notch by playing with bold colors—something we can take note of when shopping for basics.

In another life, Kaia would have made for a great late '90s/early '00s leading rom-com lady. Her sleek leather jacket ensemble is giving us major Julia Robert's vibes. Luckily, you don't have to splurge to achieve her look. Affordable faux-leather jackets are rampant this season. From her mid-calf black boots to her cropped black sweater, the rest of Kaia's outfit can easily be re-created with staples from your own closet.
