Jessica Jones’ style on a Jessica Jones budget

Jessica Jones season 2 is now on Netflix and her easy style looks can be yours on a PI budget

Our favorite Marvel P.I. Jessica Jones just released her second season on Netflix, and while a lot has changed in poor Jessica’s messed up world, her style most certainly has not. The ass-kicking, super-powered, whiskey-laden woman has what some might call a capsule wardrobe: a few basic, staple pieces that can be interchanged and won’t go out of fashion.

[May contain mild spoilers for Jessica Jones season 2.]

We doubt Jessica sees it that way since she’s too concerned with saving the world to worry about what she’s wearing – as she should be! Plus, we all know she’s not making that much dough as a P.I., and she likely spends most of it on booze (Tin Cup is a great budget whiskey choice, by the way) rather than a pair of jeans without holes.

So how can you emulate Jessica Jones’ low-effort yet super cool wardrobe? Here are a few pieces that you can add to your daily rotation, and you won’t need to bust open an ATM to afford them.

Faux Leather Moto Jacket

The most important piece of Jessica’s crime-fighting uniform is her leather jacket. While we found out that [*SPOILER*] Jessica couldn’t have afforded her iconic jacket on her own, this Faux Leather Moto Jacket from Target would have likely been in her price range. Purchase on for $39.99.
White Cotton T-Shirt

In this season, Jessica wears a slightly see-through white t-shirt with a black bralette (next slide) underneath. She’s also seen wearing a black tank top in some episodes, but this white shirt under the black jacket was really a look. This affordable basic from Cotton On looks super comfy, something we’re sure Jessica would be into. Purchase on for $14.95.
Black Lace Bralette

Layer this bralette under a semi-sheer, white cotton t-shirt and you’ll be feeling cool on those hot Hell’s Kitchen days. Plus, with no underwire, you’re free to twist and punch with comfort! Purchase on for $19.95.
Distressed Blue Jeans

No one has to know that your jeans weren’t destroyed saving the world from IGH. Tuck these into your combat boots and you’re almost ready to complete the look! Purchase on for $69.95 (currently on sale for $36.49!).
Black Combat Boots

Just as necessary as Jessica’s black leather jacket are her combat boots and these faux leather lace-ups are the perfect item to finish off your look. But don’t go stopping any buses or you might have to have the soles replaced. Purchase on for $69.95.
