They say je ne sais quoi is an intangible and elusive quality that makes something distinctive or attractive. It's a casual carelessness that doesn't come off sloppy, it just works. Entranced onlookers can't seem to put their finger on it — it's a certain effortlessness you can't learn. And if you were to look it up in the fashion dictionary, you'd surely find a blueprint of Zoë Kravitz's wardrobe.

The Los Angeles-born Brooklynite regularly strikes a perfect balance between both coasts, infusing a breezy L.A. aura into the edgy, wearable aesthetic of the fast-paced concrete jungle. With a draw towards leather, denim, and cozy knitwear, the tastemaker is known for her approachable sensibilities, and remains a total vision whether rocking waist-length mirco braids or a platinum pixie cut. That's not to say the Big Little Lies star won't dress to the nines — she knows how to serve couture glamour when the occasion strikes.

A master at high-low mixing, Kravitz sprinkles luxurious details throughout her undone getups, resulting in a range of thoughtful looks that still leave you convinced she just rolled out of bed. And even though that unfazed, cool-girl air is something you can't buy, there are a few key staples that pop up time and time again in Kravit'z go-to edit. Ahead, shop four items that characterize Kravitz's enviable downtown style, and welcome them into your closet, stat.

Kravitz grew up in the '90s, so it's no surprise she consistently incorporates grunge-inspired favorites of the era. See how she offsets this roomy jacket with stilettos and silver hoops? It's a chameleon item that can morph into so many different vibes, depending on where you're headed, and styled accordingly.

Accessories are a foolproof way to add a high-end spin on any casual look. When the LOLAWOLF singer is on-the-go in New York City, she's got a statement crossbody bag slung across her more times than not. Spruce up a basic tee with a touch of hardware or logomania and bring the look full circle.
