Spotted in New York city on 23 February, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley absolutely rocked the casual kick-ass off-duty supermodel look of basic skinny jeans and tee (a staple), leather motorcycle jacket (Balenciaga of course) and a few minimal, yet must have accessories such as cool aviators and my favourite (well one of them), Isabel Marant belts. The palladium disc belt from 2010. Let's not forget the 'Dicker' boots to pound the pavement in comfort. Street style perfection. I'll have one of each!
What I love about this look is it's such an easy one to emulate and no you don't need all designer items. There is nothing that is branded visibly in Rosie's outfit. You could easily achieve an equally chic look with substituted items. The key that I think this outfit conveys is that keep it simple. There is nothing that's a seasonal, in and out of vogue item or overtly screaming for attention, that draws your attention solely. It's an outfit, not a one item head-turner. Don't get me wrong, outfits like this take style and vision. What I mean by simple in that she is wearing just basic, yet great cut (flattering) jeans, a plain tee, plain scarf etc all in solid colours which are the easiest to match, most versatile and normally hardest working items in a wardrobe. I'm sure most of us have these items and they probably aren't even that expensive. Throw on a great jacket, add some attitude and your done.
