I am always inspired by the model-off-duty look. Everyone from Freja Beha Erichsen to Miranda Kerr has their own immaculate personal style away from the runways and bright lights, but no one does it quite so well as Miss Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (pictured, 1).
Rosie is mostly seen rocking such designer brands as Isabel Marant, Rick Owens, Vanessa Bruno, Chloe and of course, Burberry but luckily her style is very easy to copy on the high street today.
Rosie lives in LA now but she hasn’t forgotten her roots and before Christmas, she was spotted out in this classic blazer/jeans/scarf ensemble that is so popular this side of the pond.
It will soon be time to replace the chunky knitwear with lighter wool for spring. Reiss have a great sale on sweaters at the moment. A stand out piece is definitely the Baxter V-Neck Knit reduced from €100 to €47 (pictured, 2)
A coral coloured blazer is a must-have wardrobe staple for the coming season. The Kooples and Pied A Terre in House of Fraser have a beautiful coral Edge to Edge blazer, (pictured 3. £169/€204) which is a little pricey but an ideal investment piece and the perfect colour and shape to see you through the transition from winter to spring fashion.
We all love a skinny jean and they are a timelessly popular but bootleg jeans are actually easier to wear and when worn with heels, can do wonders for elongating the leg. There is a wide range on the high street now including these dark denims from River Island, £29.99/€36 (pictured 5)
The perfect way to complete this look (and guarantee you are still warm in these pending chillier months) is the addition of a light scarf. Rosie’s choice is the perfect one to keep her cosy but not engulf the whole outfit. Faded animal print scarves are a current trend and my favourite is the Animal Rose one from Miss Selfridge, £16/€21 (pictured 4).
Now all that remains to steal Rosie’s style is a pair of killer shades – and a killer pout!
