Angelina Jolie is proving that less is more when it comes to style at least. During a trip to Paris, France, the actor sported a very minimalist wardrobe looking effortlessly chic with her children. 

Angelina Jolie was in Paris to speak at the Guerlain x UNESCO Women for Bees program. While her accessories—including one of the best tote bags we've seen this season—caught our eye, her clean-cut outfits truly stole the show. For her weekend getaway, the actress was seen alongside her children Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and Knox, 13. The family spent some time shopping as they were photographed coming out of the Guerlain store. At one point, the group was spotted checking out the "World of Banksy" exhibition at the Espace Lafayette-Drouot before making a stop by Kith's Paris flagship for more shopping.

The minimalist approach is arguably one of the best packing hacks as you can make the most outfits out of the least amount of pieces. The key to achieving this style is to keep things simple by stocking your closet with select tops and bottoms in neutral shades. From there, you can layer and mix and match a variety of outfits without having to constantly shop for more clothing. The actress further proved this during her trip when she stuck to basics. Only her favorite brands made the packing list too, including Dior, The Row, Gabriela Hearst, and Chloé.

After turning 50, Jolie proved that over time her fashion sense has only gotten better. While strolling around the city visiting the famous Champs-Élysées on her first day there, the actress hopped on the flared pants trend, sporting a pair of tan trousers from Chloé’s 2022 Hearst collection and completed with a basic white tee-shirt.

Later on, she chose a more delicate look stepping out in a dainty cream cotton midi-dress designed by The Row. Probably one of the best summer dresses, the look featured a preppy collar, cinched belted waist, and nude heels.

To finish off the trip, Jolie was seen leaving her hotel wearing a classic trench coat which is a staple for practically every season. She paired it with another pair of neutral-colored trousers and a matching top. While Burberry trench coats are always a classic, for those on a budget there are more affordable options too.
