Emma Chamberlain’s best outfits and how to recreate them on the high street

Our Pinterest board is basically an homage to Emma at this point...


by Marina Avraam |

Take one look at Emma Chamberlain's outfits on IG, and you'll notice one thing; effortless elegance.

Star of the iconic 'love you bye' Met Gala video and Gen Z's queen, Emma's hilarious personality and relatable content might be what got us hooked, but her chic, laid-back fashion sense is definitely what made us stick around. We mean, that and the forehead kisses (iykyk).

It's hard to find one word to describe Emma's style; her outfits range from white vests paired with Levi's mom jeans, all the way to funky mini skirts, and lots in between. When it comes to shoes, you'll either catch Emma in some Doc Martens loafers, a pair of controversial (but fashionable?) creepers, or a pair of fresh Nike sneakers. But, the real formula to success when it comes to Emma's style, is to look as nonchalant and effortless as possible (even if you're trying really hard to do so).

Emma is somewhat of a thrift queen, so shopping second-hand is definitely one way to go about embodying her vibe. Some of her go-to brands are Brandy Melville, GANNI and pretty much any trending NYC/London designer you can think of, so make sure to look out for those names when you're on the hunt for pre-loved gems. A few great second-hand online shops include Vinted, Thrift+ and, of course, Depop.

To make life easy, we've found the best high street alternatives to our favourite Emma Chamberlain outfits. From chunky loafers to loose-fitting cargos, shop the best Emma Chamberlain outfit dupes down below.

The white vest and cargo pant

This is an outfit we've seen Emma in a few times - and we can totally see why. It's a fool-proof, easy-to-wear look that involves nothing more than a simple tank top, some cargo pants and your favourite trainers.

Ribbed Vest Top

Start the look with a simple white vest top. We've opted for this H&M vest (our go-to for all things basics) with subtle ribbing and an extra trim around the neckline for a slight twist on an otherwise basic piece.

Next up is the mighty cargo pant. The Stradivarius cargo pants are basically famous at this point, so you may struggle to find your size in stock RN. Make sure you keep checking back for restocks because they're 10000 per cent worth it - we promise.

No, you don't have to pay an arm and a leg for a sleek sneaker, and this beige/white colourway is the perfect way to spice things up from the usual white trainer.

The patterned sweater vest

Did you really think we were going to make an edit of Emma's best outfits without including a sweater vest look? Emma and sweater vests are like two peas in a pod, and we love how she's paired this GANNI vest with some bright pink trousers for a v summery look.

We can't get over the 70s vibe of these green sunnies - the perfect finishing touch to the look.

The satin maxi skirt

This outfit almost brought a tear to our eyes, tbh. Composed of a satin green maxi skirt, a cut-out white top and Emma's trusty black loafers, this is a spring/summer essential...and you still have time to flaunt it before summer is offish over (</3).

Throw a navy jumper over your polo, and don't forget to pop that collar. We love this oversized option from ASOS, that'll contrast nicely with your mini skirt.

The mini dress and chunky boot

Emma has previously stated that she hates wearing heels, so her go-to footwear for events is a chunky platform boot - a girl after our own hearts. Pair with a gorgeous little dress, like the one below, and you've got yourself a fit.
