We all know Oprah is a guru when it comes to life advice, but she’s also been known to rock some smart fashion trends.

Case in point? During a recent girls’ trip to Japan, we couldn’t help but admire her crisp yet casual look, which consisted of white cargo pants and a striped button-down.

Oprah’s been spotted in striped tops multiple times, including last year when she attended the Louis Vuitton Cruise fashion show in an oversized pinstripe button-down. She also wore the same light blue shirt while hugging her BFF Gayle in a 2020 Instagram post and in 2021 to promote her book club. And in 2019 she posed with Stephen Colbert in a multi-colored stripe style.

Clearly, the media mogul is on to something here. Button-downs add instant polish to any look, but the lightweight fabric also makes them great for layering. Recreate her smart-chic vibe with these lookalikes from Amazon, J.Crew, and more for as little as $20.

If you prefer your button-down to have a more relaxed look, check out this classic pick from Old Navy. Choose from tasteful blue and white stripes or opt for a spring-inspired green and white combo in regular, tall, and petite lengths. The linen blended fabric means you’ll stay cool and comfortable, even as the temps heat up this summer. To top it off, the hi-low hem and patch chest pocket give it added visual interest.

“Very flattering the way the stripes go down the shirt,” one reviewer wrote. “I love how it goes with the season of spring and you can wear it when there's a breeze still in the air.”

J.Crew also offers an oversized button-down with a high-low hem, but this one has a more menswear-inspired design, making it suitable for the office or happy hour. It’s made of 100 percent cotton, plus you can machine wash the top come laundry day. The two blue and white striped options definitely give Oprah vibes, but you can also choose a solid color like white or pink.
