How To Style Jeans And A Top The Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Way
If the idea of jeans and a black top conjures up the image of one of your most over-worn looks, you're not alone. While classic, the combination can feel a little tired if you rely on it too much. If you’re struggling with how to style jeans and a top in a new and sophisticated way, take a look at how Rosie Huntington-Whiteley does it.
The 31-year-old model was photographed running errands in Beverly Hills on Wed. wearing a put together variation of a timeless outfit formula. She paired a black unbuttoned blouse with dark-wash, mid-rise denim, which she finished off with a neutral brown belt with a gold buckle. No look is complete without the perfect footwear, and Huntington-Whiteley chose a clear celebrity favorite. She opted for a pair of slouchy, suede boots by Saint Laurent (a style she wears frequently), which helped to flawlessly tie in her black crossbody with gold hardware.
Huntington-Whiteley went for even more metallic accents with a pair of thick gold hoops and a large "R" necklace. To complete the ensemble, she threw on a pair of square-shaped, oversized glasses. According to Huntington-Whiteley, wearing a simple look doesn't have to equate to a dull one.
While it's largely possible that the items necessary to create this ensemble are already components in your fall clothing rotation, it's completely okay if you've got some shopping to do. In fact, coming upon these staple pieces is a lot easier than you think. Ahead, shop The Zoe Report's selections so you can recreate this timeless, iconic look in your own closet.

Tenia Silk Blouse
This 100% silk button-down is a slightly more delicate version of a quintessential top. Wear it unbuttoned with layered, gold statement necklaces or button it up and add a blanket scarf on a freezing cold day.
Silk Button-Up Shirt
Tuck this simple shirt into a pencil skirt, checked trousers, or dark denim à la Rosie. If your wardrobe is already filled to the brim with black button-downs, this top comes in five other colors to choose from. With a top as classic as this one, you may just need to buy them all.
The Cheeky Straight Ankle Jean
If you love the look of Hutington-Whiteley's subtly scrunched jeans tucked into her boots, then this style is for you. Plus, they're totally affordable — this pair retails at only $68. These are the kind of jeans you'll want to wear again and again.
Although these jeans are super comfortable and form-fitting, the fabric won't stretch out or lose its shape like most skinny jeans. The ankle-grazing length makes them perfect to wear with boots, pumps, loafers, or even sneakers.
Suede Era Heeled Thigh High Boots
Splurge on Huntington-Whiteley's exact pair of designer thigh highs. The coolest part about them? You can wear them in two ways. Pull them down for a slouchy vibe, or stretch them up your leg for something a bit more sleek.
Hanny Slouchy Knee High Boot
This pair is extremely similar to its more expensive counterpart, and it's on sale for half off the original price. Wear them with an animal-printed mini skirt, tights, and a cozy turtleneck for your next holiday party, family dinner, or night out.
