Before you curl up with a good book, it's important to find a well-lit, quiet spot in the house to read and to make sure your outfit withstands you sitting, or laying down, for a prolonged period of time. Reese Witherspoon's striped sweater from LOFT, casual pants, and reading glasses checked off all these boxes and more. The multi-hyphenate shared a photo of her outfit while promoting her winter YA book-club read, a coming-of-age novel titled You Have a Match. Minnie Pearl, the puppy Witherspoon welcomed home in Nov. 2020, sat on her lap.
As work-from-home fashion has become the norm, Witherspoon's reading outfit serves as the perfect example of loungewear that also looks put together enough for a Zoom call, or, in her case, for an Instagram outfit post. Her blue-and-white stripe knit sweater is cozy, with a button placket and mock neck, but still polished — a foundational piece that fits right in with her classic-meets-preppy style.
Though Witherspoon often chooses dresses and blue jeans from her own line Draper James, this time she opted for a pair of laid-back gray joggers that easily fall under the lounge-at-home category. Witherspoon's relaxed choice spoke more broadly to celebrities' tastes for stylish sweatpants and other casual separates, especially in a pandemic.
For some final touches, Witherspoon elevated her look with pared-back accessories that coordinated with the classic look. She wore a pair of gold hoop earrings and tortoise eyeglasses. The actress kept her makeup look simple with a swipe of pink lipstick and her hair loosely cascaded down to her shoulders.
