Alexandra Martin is a wearwell stylist living in NYC. When she's not creating stylist picks for wearwell members, she enjoys cooking old-school vegan health food, reading historical nonfiction, diving into astrology, and hanging out with her beloved friends.
Some style makers emit a cool aloofness, and some have a way of making their fans feel as if they almost know them. Emma Watson fits into that second camp: her fans have watched her grow up and many have even grown up with her! From her roles in beloved coming-of-age classics like Harry Potter and The Perks Of Being A Wallflower to the environmental activism she’s known for today (including in sustainable fashion!), she’s made a meaningful connection with an entire generation of women. It’s no wonder that the stylists here at wearwell hear from so many women that they want to emulate her style! Read on for ways to recreate some of her signature looks with pieces from wearwell.
Sophisticated Academia Aesthetic
I love Emma Watson’s version of the Dark Academia aesthetic that you’ll find all over Pinterest and TikTok. You can see the influence of her role as Hermoine Granger for so many years coming through in her style. She maintains the Prep School (...Hogwarts?) Charm but manages to never, ever look costume-y.
To get the Sophisticated Academia look, pair the Nicole Bodysuit with the Laci Skirt, or tuck it under the Billie Jumper Dress.
The Libni Tie Top is a great option for a dash of academic flair. The tie-neck nods to menswear while still being ultra-femme.
Jaspal Boyfriend Blazer, Grey Check
For classroom-inspired outerwear, the Jaspal Boyfriend Blazer is a no-brainer (and a dupe for ones that Emma wears). I also love tempering this sometimes boxy aesthetic with pieces like the belted Shreya Shirt Jacket and the drapey Jasmine Cardigan.
Accessorize this look with a rustic, romantic backpack like the Lana Leather Backpack or the Lilia Backpack, and slip on some loafers like The Sabina in Caramel.
The Luna Earrings are the perfect pairing for achieving Emma’s academia style. They offer an enchanted variation on the classic pearl earring, giving a sophisticated look inspired by fantasy novels.

Sweet And Strong
Another quintessential Emma Watson look that I love is her penchant for contrasting hyper-romantic pieces with bold black accessories.
To get this look, start off with a soft and dreamy dress like the Erin Mini Dress, Adelaide Tiered Midi Dress, or the Willow Dress. To build a base from separates, opt for the Cindy High Rise Skinny topped with the Margie Blouse.

Next step: ground the romantic, ethereal vibes of those pieces with bold, contrasting dark tones.
Georgia Tote Bag, Black Vegan Apple Leather
I personally love The Carmen Boot with the Casual Sock. Grab the Georgia Tote Bag, and don the hard-rocking Hai Hoops. The Eileen Blazer is another way to add subtle oomph to dreamy, feminine pieces.
Emma has been spotted in so many glamorous, yet also wearable outfits. One of my favorites is her look from a party in 2015. This ensemble still looks so fresh today, which speaks volumes about how timeless a great outfit can be!
Val Mini Skirt, Floral Stamp Black
To get this perennially en-vogue look, pop on the drapey James Drop Sleeve Top, and tuck it into the Val Mini Skirt or the Nahla Skirt.
Ella Midi Bag, Wild Oak Soft Grain Leather
Slip on The Elena Boot and grab the Ella Midi Bag or Emily Bag. To finish it off, pop on some classically glamorous earrings like the Winona Gemstone Hoops and swipe on bright lipstick if that’s your thing (it’s mine!)
