Who was your TV style crush growing up? After Blossom and Carrie Bradshaw, mine was, not surprisingly, Rachel Green. I know I’m not alone. Anyone else ask their stylist for “the Rachel” every time she got a new haircut or buy a pleated miniskirt and knee-high boots immediately after she wore them? To put it mildly, I was (and still am) obsessed with all things not only Rachel but also Jennifer Aniston. This infatuation has continued well after Friends ended and still does to this day, which happens to be Aniston’s 50th birthday. Yes, today she turns 50. (Please tell us your secret, Jennifer), and her style is still going strong 30 years after she first hit our screens in the ’90s.
Jennifer Aniston has proven her classic fashion prowess on and off the screen—avoiding gimmicky trends and sticking to timeless basics that still look relevant today. From spaghetti straps to square-toed shoes in the ’90s to her fail-safe jeans-tank-and-blazer outfits she swears by today. So in celebration of 30 years of chic style, we’re honing in on all those great jean outfits she’s worn over the decades—from mom jeans to bootcut denim and ’90s straight-leg jeans—all of which you could wear today. It’s safe to say nothing separates Aniston from her jeans. Scroll below for all her favorite jean looks and silhouettes—on and off the screen—from the ’90s until now.
