Sydney Sweeney just showed us exactly how to dress for those laidback, hazy summer days—here's how to recreate her fit for your own summer capsule wardrobe, from her Celine bralette right down to her chic gold huggie earrings...

While denim midi skirts and 'fun pants' are dominating the spring fashion trends, Euphoria's Sydney Sweeney just proved exactly why we'll always keep returning to the classic blue jeans and shirt combo, as she embodied all things 'Quiet Luxury' while in town for the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.

The actress stepped out wearing a timeless ensemble, complete with a chic pair of sunnies—so chic in fact that they could give Hailey Bieber's sunglasses style a run for its money. Here's how to build your own casual, Sydney-inspired holiday fit for summer and beyond...

How to copy Sydney Sweeney's Cannes outfit

After being spotted hand in hand with her boyfriend (or fiance?), Jonathan Davino (Sydney Sweeney boyfriend intel, this way!) on Sunday, May 21, 2023, wearing a white and baby blue evening dress, the actress then followed up with the most perfect and versatile, off-duty day look.

Stepping out on Monday, Sydney debuted her take on that iconic 'French Girl' aesthetic, for a day in the French Riveria. She wore her blonde hair down, with some gold hoops and Miu Miu sunglasses resting atop her hair, while wearing some mid-blue jeans (the CottonOn Low Rise Straight Jeans to be exact), a white Celine crop top and a blue and white striped poplin shirt.

The oversized shirt hung open, over the rest of her fit—creating a sophisticated but chilled vibe, one which could only be improved upon with a few spritzes of Sydney Sweeney's fave perfume we're sure!

And while, of course, Sydney's fit did include some designer elements, her overall outfit is very timeless and really easy to recreate on a budget! It's especially perfect as Scandi-style shirts are very in right now...
