Be a Buddy Comedy Babe in Rashida Jones’ I Love You, Man-inspired Looks

Paul Rudd and Jason Segel may be the main dynamic duo behind the new buddy comedy I Love You, Man, but let’s not forget to give credit where credit is due. As Zooey, Rudd’s well-meaning fiancée, Rashida Jones lights up the screen in a covetable collection of laid-back but totally stylish outfits, heavy on the striped cardigans and colorful tees. Read on for details on how to score look-alike fashions for your own closet.

Kick things off with a sleeveless yellow collared blouse worn under a taupe and white striped cardigan, just like Rashida wears in the film. Our picks: Ann Taylor LOFT’s Sleeveless Ruffle Button Front Shirt in snapdragon yellow, paired with White + Warren’s Buckwheat Striped Cashmere Cardigan or Gap’s Striped Boyfriend Cardigan.

Next, try blending a plain oatmeal-hued cardigan (like J.Crew’s Merino Crewneck Cardigan in beechwood) with a check-print top and a cheery coral-red skirt. Try Milly’s Bobble Chain Skirt or Banana Republic’s Pleated Knit Skirt. On the shirt front, we like Sunner’s Park Top and Anna Sui for Anthropologie’s Cabana Camisole.

Rashida also wears a fun array of colorful graphic tees, from a bird-emblazoned navy top paired with a red cardigan to a quirky Florida tee worn with a navy and white striped cardigan. Get the look in Delia’s Chaser Peace Dove tee and New York & Company’s red City Style Twinset Cardigan, or go for Almightee’s Florida Bites tee and Hayden’s V-Neck Cotton-Cashmere Cardigan in navy.

To complete your I Love You, Man transformation, slip on your favorite jeans (this look is all about being comfortable and not trying too hard). Keep your makeup warm but natural, with soft, tawny eye shadow, brown eyeliner and mascara, a light, summery touch of bronzer, and a pretty kick of rosy-pink lipgloss. Whether or not you have face-framing bangs like Rashida, you can keep your locks from being too fussy by putting them back in a ponytail, or letting them fall loosely against your shoulders. In other words, ditch the Chi. Et voila! You’ve got the cool and carefree style down pat—minus the Paul Rudd, of course.
