Not only is Margot Robbie perfecting all her Barbie promo-tour looks, but she’s also winning when it comes to her own personal wardrobe. The actress works closely with her stylist, Andrew Mukamal, who is responsible for her chic aesthetic both on the red carpet and off.
The actress stepped out in New York City ahead of the Gotham Awards yesterday, wearing an autumnal ensemble that quickly caught our eye. Robbie’s Bottega Veneta outfit was a shining example of understated luxury, focusing on key wardrobe classics such as denim, a goes-with-everything shirt and an effortlessly cool oversized blazer.
Here’s why we love her look:
Robbie’s head-to-toe Bottega Veneta outfit is firmly on our fashion mood board. She wore an autumnal wool blazer, an unbuttoned striped shirt, wide-leg jeans, a staple white vest, pointed black boots, cat-eye sunglasses and carried the luxury label’s signature woven bag.
Why it works
Robbie’s outfit is an ode to business casual; her blazer and shirt keep things feeling tailored and workwear-appropriate, while her loose-fit jeans and white tank top add an element of casual weekend dressing. Her heeled boots under the floor-grazing jeans give the illusion of longer legs – while her woven handbag ties everything together nicely with an extra touch of luxury.
While both an oversized blazer and looser-fitting jeans may sound like a tricky style to master, Robbie’s clever layering of a fitted white vest gives valuable definition to her look, preventing her smaller frame from getting lost. Hailey Bieber is also a poster girl for mastering the oversized aesthetic, with her former stylist previously sharing words of wisdom with Bazaar. “Keep the shirt underneath tight or something else fitted within your outfit so that you can see your body in some way,” advises Maeve Reilly. “Personally, I like to do that with a baggy trouser, a crop top and then a baggy blazer. It’s all about dressing for your body type, so think about the most flattering thing or feature you love most and show that off.”
Why it’s a forever classic
If you’re feeling inspired by Robbie’s look, chances are you have all the components hanging up already. Dig out your baggiest jeans and get to work; remembering the white vest layering trick to add definition to your outfit. Robbie’s oversized look is timeless and effortless, as all her pieces steer clear from passing trends and can be worn year after year.
How to style it
The beauty of this outfit is that it is made entirely of classic separates that can easily be interchangedl; swap out the white shirt for a pop of colour, or switch the brown blazer for black and add a lace cami for a dressier feel.
If you want to layer up as temperatures drop, but keep the same aesthetic, be inspired by Carey Mulligan’s similar look below. She keeps the same mix of business and casual with a tailored top half (this time a stylish coat instead of Robbie’s blazer) mixed with wide-leg jeans, classic boots and an oversized designer handbag. She applies the same rule by adding a fitted black vest underneath her oversized coat to keep the definition to her frame, and of course, finishes her look with the A-list essential: a pair of sunglasses.
