You might know her as the beautiful blonde in action flicks like Mad Max and Transformers, or maybe you remember her from her time on the Victoria’s Secret runway as an Angel. We know her as the queen of cozy airport style and, frankly, someone who’s always looking fly. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is the English model-turned-actress that can be found on the pages of People’s style sections making travel, errands or an evening out look chicer than ever.
Falling (gracefully) somewhere in the middle of rocker chic and your modern, girl-next-door aesthetic, Rosie balances the classics alongside edgy and bohemian fashion pieces for a wardrobe that has girls of every style pining to raid her closet.
But the truth is, Ms. Huntington-Whiteley knows what works for her and mimicking her casual celebirty style only takes a few key pieces. Casually cool and always polished, this blockbuster babe makes enviable outfits happen on the regular with a steady rotation of skinnies, novelty jackets and headwear.
The Leather Jacket
Rosie mixes laidback leather with a dressy bohemian blouse or silky top, for a high/low look that is opposite her structured blazer and tee combo (see below). Get your leather on with this faux version that’s less than $60.
The Wool Hat
Not everyone is a hat person, but Rosie makes it look effortless with an arsenal of wool, wide-brim versions at the ready. We love ribbon trimmed fedoras and free-spirited floppy hats that embrace fall’s boho spirit.
The Cigarette Jean
In full length and cropped lengths, a tight skinny is a signature staple for the leggy blonde. Stretch denim, trouser or leather pant, the only “must” when it comes to this bottom is that they’re slim throughout the whole leg.
When she goes casual with a tee, she always preps it up with a tailored blazer. We love the look of soft, thin, worn-in staples underneath your structured prim and proper jacket for a boy-meets-girl look that’s sharply suited for casual Fridays and beyond.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has perfected the art of casual celebrity style. Which look is your favorite?
