Kaley Cuoco’s off-duty style is pretty enviable. She not only looks put-together, but approachable too. In an alternate universe, Kaley would be your BFF and she’d help you pick out the perfect jeans to wear on your next night out. Since that isn’t the case, we’ve got the next best thing. Speaking to In Style, Cuoco revealed all her all-time favourite go-tos, from the best fitting tee to her jean style of choice to the sneakers she can’t live without.
“I’ve definitely developed a simpler way of dressing. I love menswear, and I love jean shorts and a T-shirt. I own a ridiculous amount of white T-shirts and black T-shirts. I love slacks, I love high-waisted pants, and I don’t wear heels; you won’t ever really see me in heels.” As for favourite t-shirts to go with those slacks and high-waisted pants? “L’Agence makes my most favorite line of T-shirts. They are absolutely fantastic. But, you know what? I have to tell you, Gap T-shirts are freaking epic, too. They fit so well.” BRB, stockpiling Gap tees immediately.
When asked about style icons, the actress was quick to praise none other than fellow white-tee fan Jennifer Aniston. “She is the queen of the white T-shirt! I think maybe I copied her a little bit,” she admits. “She’s always wearing the best jeans and literally a T-shirt. You’ll even see her [wear that] out on a date or something, and then she’s got on a high heel — she does like a high heel, but I don’t. She likes to have a wedge. But I think she always looks so effortless.”

Cuoco also has good things to say about menswear enthusiast and icon Diane Keaton. “Diane Keaton is my other style icon because she made menswear the sexiest thing in the world. And the hats, and big clothing, and not everything has to be so skintight to look sexy. I love comfort. There’s some gorgeous clothing out there that doesn’t have to be uncomfortable.” Play up your favourite shorts and tee combo with an oversized blazer and a stylish hat.
As for the three essentials that Kaley thinks everyone needs in their closets? “Definitely a yoga pant — simple as that. A big, cozy sweater, like one of those ginormous ones that make no sense but are just incredible. And then, a white T-shirt.” Is this soft sherpa one nonsensical enough?
When it comes to jeans, high-waisted is Kaley’s cut of choice. “Literally high-waisted jeans and a white T-shirt. Tuck it in, then put on a belt and a loafer. How cute are you?! That’s your daytime, and then, when you go out at night, throw a blazer on. So chic and so easy. I used to wear like, the low-rise jeans — remember the Frankie Bs and stuff? Now I’ve gone to high-waisted and I just think it looks cooler.”
As for shoe choice, Kaley’s a fan of sneakers. In particular, a pair of white Nikes she liked so much, she bought six pairs. “Nike makes a white one that is so freaking cute. It’s all-white with a white sole. I bought six pairs — because they get so dirty — just so I would have new ones. I’m really into sneakers. People are starting to realize that no one wants to be walking around the city in high heels, and all these companies, these designers, are coming out with great, really cute sneakers.” When she’s not buying six pairs, you can find her keeping her whites white with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
