While watching Fixer Upper, we’ve always lusted after Joanna Gaines’ wardrobe — well, that and the gorgeous houses, of course! We love her fuss-free yet stylish approach to getting dressed. Many of the items in her closet are meant to be comfortable, which is so refreshing, especially now that it’s getting warm and we want to wear as little as possible. That said, she also doesn’t shy away from a little flair. But Joanna’s biggest lesson when it comes to fashion is to just to relax, have fun with it, and be confident — and that’s a message we couldn’t agree with more!
Ahead, we break down the design queen’s closet staples, so you can copy her look this summer and into fall.
