Model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley proves you can look chic and fashionable while rocking neutral colors in a simple skirt and white top. She makes a statement walking down the streets of New York City in this sleek Sally LaPointe white crepe top and bronze silk wrap skirt. This elegant silk skirt and tan jacket look are perfect for a day at the office or even a night out. The skirt’s slit spices up the look, but isn’t cut too high, which means it’s perfect for women over 40! Rosie’s bright yellow heels add a pop color and gives the ensemble more flavor. Here’s how to get this Rosie Huntington-Whiteley look for less.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Chic Neutral Look for Less
The Silk Wrap Slip Skirt
For my first skirt suggestion, think patterns! This beige snake print wrap skirt is made from a sleek, lightweight woven fabric. It is the perfect look to take your wardrobe to the next level. It’s bold, on trend and can be dressed up with a beige or tan jacket or even dressed down with a casual tee. Since it is a wrapped skirt style, it is flattering on most body types.
This Vince silk skirt is very close in color and style to Rosie’s, and it’s on sale!
This Leith skirt is the perfect color and style for spring! The satin, bias cut midi skirt falls perfectly below the knees and comes in a yellow meringue color, red ditsy or leopard print. Again, the flowy feel and neutral patterns and colors add boldness to your look.
This Topshop double-breasted blazer pulls the whole outfit together. And it comes in multiple colors such as cream, mustard, olive and rust, which are all on trend for spring. It pairs well with just about anything whether it’s a sleek flowy skirt like in this Rosie Huntington-Whiteley look or with a casual tee and jeans. This is the ideal jacket for a grab-and-go final touch to your look.
The Tank Top
A neutral color top is imperative to pull off this look. It does not have to be a very extravagant or dressy top, it can just be a casual white tee, tank or V-neck. The jacket and the shoes will spice up the look and make it more formal and elegant so leave the top simple. A basic v-neck tank like this one from Express is a perfect, versatile shirt that can be worn under any jacket! It is important to have go-to easy shirts like this that can be worn multiple ways with different looks and styles. They are a necessity in anyone’s spring wardrobe! So stock up.
These Coach Maya Sandals tie the whole look together. They come in a few different patterns and textures such as black leather, champagne metallic leather, snake print leather, and a tan color called “Lion.” If you are trying to spice up your style and be bold, I recommend the snake print leather with a solid colored skirt because the pattern brings out the rest of the look. The open toe style is exceptional for spring and the block heel is not too high, making them more comfortable to walk or stand in for long periods of time.
These oversized sunglasses from Quay make your look complete! The harsh straight brow, heavy plastic frame, and boxy design dramatizes your look, making you look bold and confident. Trust me, if you walk into a room with these shades on, you will be noticed.
These goldtone textured hoop drop earrings are the foolproof accessory to add a little more style and flavor to the look. They are the perfect size to just add a little more flare.
Styling Tips for This Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Chic Neutral Look
1. A satin or silk slip skirt is totally on-trend and a must-have for the season. Flowy skirts are versatile and perfect for just about any event. They can be dressed up with a jacket and heels similar to Rosie’s look, or dressed down with a cute pair of sneakers and a casual top.
2. Longer menswear inspired jackets are on major trend right now. Rosie’s oversized jacket pulls her whole look together. Anything shorter or tighter would take away from her relaxed look. Oversized blazers are a smart option for cooler days and can be your go-to jacket when you are in a hurry! Consider neutral colors like beige, cream, tan, brown or black because they are more versatile. A neutral jacket can be worn casually with jeans and a tee, or more elegantly with trousers or skirts.
3. Never overlook the importance of a pop of color when wearing mostly neutrals. The yellow heels Rosie is wearing adds a boost of color to her look and makes it more casual and spring-like. A little bit of color really goes a long way. It can tie a whole look together and make it more stylish and bold. Don’t be afraid to add pops of color into your looks with your shoes, bag, belt or shades. Any color will work when you are wearing neutrals. Show off your style!
