Starting out as a Disney star, Zendaya is someone who has truly captured her fans’ hearts. Known for her roles in Spider-Man, The Greatest Showman and most recently, HBO‘s TV series Euphoria, she’s been a familiar face on the big screen and on streaming services. Not only that, but she’s become a fashion and beauty icon with her easy-breezy style. It’s no surprise that she has released her own footwear line, athleisure collection and collaboration range with Tommy Hilfiger.

The rising starlet has truly unique style whether she’s dressing down in jeans and sneakers or dressing up in silk pieces and heels. On her 23rd birthday, September 1, we’re breaking down the five wardrobe essentials she can’t leave home without. Scroll down below to see the latest installment of our Celebrity Wardrobe Essentials series. While you’re looking at how to recreate Zendaya’s aesthetic, here’s our tutorial to her sunset makeup look.

1. Crisp Button-Up Shirts

Taking notes from vintage-inspired style, Zendaya is often seen sporting crisp button-up shirts. Wear them with a pair of trousers or cinched at the waist with a belt like she does. Go for a boxy, classic cut from Helmut Lang, a pop of color from Gucci or a completely unique, ruffled look from sacai.

2. Cozy Sneakers

Whether it’s a classic pair of high-top Converse, Nike Air Jordan 1s or PUMA Suedes, it’s no secret that Zendaya is a fan of sneakers. When the actress isn’t attending red carpet events, her style is pretty casual so comfortable shoes are key.
