Beyoncé is undeniably one of the best-dressed celebrities, thanks to mastermind Zerina Akers, who’s served as a longtime image architect and stylist for the pop star. Over the past few years, Bey has been seen in pieces by countless emerging designers, making her a fellow supporter of small brands — like Sammy B and Ashya — who are on the cusp of hitting the mainstream. A few of Bey’s recent moments we couldn’t get enough of include her birthday look worn at Made In America and her Lion King premiere look.

For her 38th birthday, September 4, we’re taking a look at the iconic singer’s tried and true go-to footwear in addition to her wardrobe essentials. Though some of her clothing staples are a bit on the high-end, we’ve also included some affordable alternatives below for those who’d like to recreate Queen Bey’s outfits.

1. Fitted Blazers

These curve-hugging pieces have become somewhat of an essential for Beyoncé. She’s been seen wearing sets that feature blazers by Sergio Hudson and Maria Escote, to name a few. What’s unique about the way she wears these separates is the fact that it’s usually styled with metallic accessories, larger than life curly extensions and killer heels. Look to a simple blazer if you’re aiming to add a hint of business casual to your everyday looks.

2. Strappy Sandals

On the red carpet and while attending star-studded events, Bey is typically wearing a pair of strappy heeled sandals. Akers has previously paired shoes by Jimmy Choo and Salone Monet with Bey’s head-turning outfits. The entertainer seems to have an obsession with statement heels that are appropriate for more than just one setting.

3. Unique Handbags

Bey has long been a fan of eccentric handbags and we don’t blame her. They’re versatile and have the ability to spruce up any ‘fit. If you haven’t quite figured out how to incorporate carry-alls that draw attention to you into your looks, scroll through her Instagram for a few style tips. The artist has been spotted carrying coveted designs by Jacquemus and Chloé. She recently wore Ashya’s Pana Pouch in “Onyx Croc” and the Cedar Mini Belt Bag in “Morado” (available at Opening Ceremony in New York and Los Angeles).
