Jolie's self-confidence is a unique element of her look.

Jolie wears a lot of black, white, ivory, taupe and gray. You may occasionally see her sporting green or red, but for the most part she sticks to neutrals. Her love affair with black is undeniable, and you see it repeatedly on the red carpet. The acclaimed black strapless Versace gown at the 2012 Oscars with a sky-high slit was one of Jolie's most daring red carpet moments.

When it comes to Jolie's day-to-day wardrobe, she chooses loose and comfortable basic such as jeans, T-shirts and sweatshirts. When she needs to step it up for a charity event or premiere, she might wear some leather pants or a pencil skirt. For a fabulous red carpet night Jolie often opts for swanky column dresses. She sometimes sports a '20s look, such as the olive green gown by Max Azria Atelier she wore to the 2008 Cannes Film Festival. Sometimes she goes for something edgy, like the Saint Laurent tuxedo she wore at the British Academy of Film Awards in London in 2014.

Shoes and Accessories: On the Minimalist Side

Jolie often chooses classic pumps, which make legs look long and slim.

Jolie's top choices for shoes are classic pumps and flats in black or nude. She also favors boots with jeans or skirts. For a casual look, a comfortable pair of combat boots is her go-to shoe. For dressy outfits, a sleek knee-length boot is usually the answer. When it comes to accessories, the actress and humanitarian stays on the minimalist side, with big sunglasses and delicate jewelry, like small diamond studs, a thin bracelet or chain. Big totes make carrying all the essentials easy for this mom of six children. For a gala or event, she often chooses chandelier earrings for a glam vibe with her low-key outfit.

Hair and Makeup: Stay Classic

Jolie keeps the makeup focus on her eyes and lips.

Jolie tops off her classic outfits with, what else, a classic blowout with volume. For special occasions, she sometimes arrives in an elegant bun. Her makeup look is very natural and emphasizes her green eyes with black eyeliner on the top and bottom. She coats her famously plump lips with a bright red lipstick or a natural- hued lip gloss.
