You do you, Jennifer Lawrence.
The 24-year-old Oscar wore the same eclectic outfit—moccasins, zigzag pants, gray peacoat and matching beanie—not once, but twice this week in New York City.
J.Law was first spotted in her very legit-NYC clothing combo on March 22 as she made her way out of a hotel with Bradley Cooper (and her dog!) in tow. The following Sunday (as in yesterday) she recycled her practical ensemble to grab lunch with some friends in Chinatown.
Jennifer looked perfectly fine, but unlike some celebs, she wasn't using the sidewalks as a runway or eager for the paparazzi to snap her super-styled look. That might have something to do with the fact that, as she told the U.K.'s Telegraph last year, "I have perspective because I didn't grow up in this business."

"I'm not from Hollywood. I'm from Kentucky," she said. "I didn't become successful until a few years ago and I'm very aware of what the real world is and how much a couch costs."
"So I bought one from Ikea," she revealed with a laugh, referring to her then-new couch. "It doesn't matter how much money I make, unfairness in prices really fires me up. Like shopping in L.A and a tee-shirt costs $150."
So why dress down in New York? Jen doesn't want to draw any unnecessary attention to herself. "A lot of anxiety comes from something as simple as me going to the grocery store because I don't know what could happen and I have nightmares all the time that I'm walking through a shopping mall and suddenly people start surrounding me and there's nowhere I can go," she told the Telegraph. "So sometimes it's easier to call one of my friends and ask them to pick up some bananas for me because I don't want to go to the grocery store and have an event."
"But it's important to stay grounded, so I don't know," she said. "Im figuring it out. Or trying to."
