We've gotten to know Sweeney a bit through her three-decade career and watched as she blossomed from young soap star to a Hollywood favorite. 

One of our favorite looks on the star? A gold metallic dress she sported to the 2013 People's Choice Awards, at which she was a presenter. Whereas the star was frequently spotted in A-line dresses or blouses and jeans,  the figure-hugging gown was a big style shake-up, a risk she totally rocked.

Another trend the mom-of-two has recently mastered? Ripped denim and stripes! Red carpet or not, her style -- made up of simple denim and other style staples -- is as effortless as it comes. 

Sweeney also recently stepped out just a few months ago for Hallmark's "Home & Family," sporting a chic floral jumpsuit, a look we can't wait to test out this spring! For the star's complete style transformation, scroll through above!
