The September Issue DVD is in stores today, and we are excited to see an extra 90 minutes of unseen footage, which means more glimpses (and more outfits) of the always put together Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

The bob and black sunglasses are her signature, but there’s more to her elegant look than that.  Check out these pieces that scream Anna Wintour, but that work for many more body shapes and budgets than make it into the pages Vogue.

We know that her large clothing allowance and personal hair stylist help her look so manicured, but there is something to be said for a working woman who has an edited wardrobe that suits so many occasions.

Tweed can be stuffy, but this patterned Contessa dress by J.Crew ($148) is young and classic at the same time. Anna usually sticks to this silhouette: defined waist, boat neck or crew collar, and a skirt that ends either right above or below the knee.

No matter how much PETA protests, Anna refuses to give up her fur, and this Ellen Tracy Reversible Faux Fur Walking Coat ($248) is an affordable alternative that gives a similar look without offending animal lovers.

You rarely see Anna outside of a kitten toe heel, and during the winter, knee length boots like these Guess by Marciano Pmjakola boots ($182.26) would fit seamlessly into her closet. The rich suede adds texture, while the classic shape can be worn for years to come.

A cardigan is a mainstay in Anna’s wardrobe, and this Esprit Cardigan with Sequins ($22.37) would pair perfectly with the tweed dress. The sequins detail on the shoulder is trendy, something Anna might eschew, but the classic shape makes this piece timeless.

A statement necklace is usually Anna’s accessory of choice, and this Banana Republic Centurion necklace ($69.50) looks rich without the designer price tag.

Black Chanel sunglasses always top of the editor’s ensembles, and these Nicole Miller Deluxe ($120.99) shades have the same oval shape that are Anna’s trademark, but they don’t have the high price tag.
