Lupita Nyong'o doesn't have to work hard to impress us. She just steps onto the red carpet and flashes her mega-watt smile, and we swoon. Even though she's attending award shows as a guest this season, Nyong'o is still nabbing spots on every best dressed list — and unwittingly starting a couple of trends along the way. Playing up florals this year at both the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards, her red-carpet game has never been stronger. The actress' off-duty style merits recognition, too.

Before glamming up for Sunday's SAG awards, Lupita stepped out with a friend in L.A., wearing her weekend best: a casual, striped pullover with skinny jeans and oversized sunglasses. (It was all eerily similar to our own brunch uniform, if we do say so ourselves.) Instead of going with the starlet favorite, the black skinny jean, Lupita opted for a burgundy pair with a coated finish. With some oversized frames and a chic, structured bag, the actress confirmed our suspicions that she is, in fact, everything. Check out Lupita's look and see how you can steal her weekend outfit, ahead.
