The Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Style Guide
By: Olivia Marrone
Among photos of warmly lit, neutral interiors and beauty product flat lays, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s chic outfits stand out on her Instagram feed. Making mirror selfies chic and selling out a certain Zara bodysuit, in recent years the model and founder of Rose Inc. has become one of the top sources of modern, minimalist style inspiration on Instagram.
Rosie’s style is effortlessly elegant and sleek and, despite most of her pieces being high-end, her aesthetic is easy to emulate.
From tailored overcoats to boxy blazers, Rosie often sports some version of a statement jacket year-round. By keeping the focus on a jacket and leaving the rest of the outfit minimal, this ensemble can be put together in seconds with simple accessories to top it off.
The past year has proved that comfort reigns supreme over style, but if there’s one thing Rosie has taught us it’s how to make comfy look chic. Wide-legged trousers and leggings with slits up the sides are staples that can instantly make any look more put together.
Modern approaches to classic necklines (i.e. the now-iconic Khaite top) are an easy way to achieve Rosie’s effortless look without having to take major fashion risks. When shopping for tops and knit dresses, look for pieces with rounded necklines that contrast with sleek pants.
While Rosie’s outfits are typically minimalistic, when it comes to jewelry, maximalism is the key. Statement necklaces, stacking rings, earrings, and the occasional anklet are go-to accessories that Rosie uses to elevate a look. One of her most worn pieces is a chunky paperclip necklace. This style of necklace, which is available at many price points, is an easy way to elevate even the most simple outfits.
From boots and sandals to classic heels, rarely do we see Rosie in a pair of flats. While her heeled shoes are minimal and sleek in detail, they’re just enough to add the finishing touches to a chic outfit. Rosie recently launched her first-ever shoe collaboration with Gia Couture Firenze, which you can shop here.
