No matter what age she is, Reese Witherspoon is a fashion icon. Now, Reese Witherspoon’s throwback photo proves she was a child queen of ’80s fashion, too. Of course, there have been other throwback photos of Witherspoon where she looked equally fashionable as a kid, reported People. But her latest one on Instagram is ~pretty great~. Witherspoon shared it on Instagram after posting some birthday photos (Happy 41st Birthday, Reese!). In case you’re curious, she celebrated with her two oldest kids, Ava and Deacon, which we’ll get to in a moment.
First, however, let’s take a look at Witherspoon’s latest Insta pic.
Okay, how much do we love this?! I’m sure we all have photos of this hiding someplace, amirite?! But we love that Witherspoon posted it to show the kid fashion in all of us. Btw, ICYMI, the “Jams” Witherspoon’s referring to are her shorts. Back in the ‘80s, Jams were a line of Hawaiian-inspired shorts that were SUPER popular, according to Complex.
See?! Lots of kids were into them!
And adults were into Jams, too.
And it looks like some people are ~still~ into wearing them today. Why not?!
And you can still nab a pair of the shorts from Jams World in Hawaii. Or, you can find a vintage pair on eBay. So, Witherspoon, you were definitely a trend-setter even as a kid!
Like we said, the actress/producer just celebrated her birthday.
Though we loved what she wore for her birthday, too bad we didn’t know about her love for Jams—we could’ve gotten her a pair!
In any case, it looks like people are getting into Jams again, so perhaps we’ll see Witherspoon post a current photo in them sometime soon!
