If you only buy one item of clothing this winter, make it Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's oversized gray blazer. This everyday office essential is looking more like a coat with every degree the temperature drops, and the one RHW is sporting seems to be the best of both worlds. The model's menswear-inspired wool-blend blazer is the cold-weather staple you've been looking for.
On Thurs., the former Victoria's Secret Angel shared an Instagram story selfie with her 8.8 million followers. In it, she's wearing the coziest light-gray bell-sleeved thick knit tucked into black skinny jeans and velvet heeled boots. The best part of her comfy-chic ensemble, though, was the longline blazer that was draped over the model's shoulders.
The layer is a striped, double-breasted blazer by Isabel Marant. Marant, herself, has said that she prefers a man's closet over a woman's, and her penchant for menswear shows in this oversized piece. It features structured shoulders, a loose and boxy shape, front flap pockets and a traditional back vent.
These long and oversized blazers have seemed to override their short and tailored counterparts lately. Olivia Palermo just recently rocked a menswear-style blazer by Victoria Beckham on the red carpet of the British Fashion Awards, and Meghan Markle wears them to royal events all the time. Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid have been working these blazers into their edgy street style looks, too.

Blazers are the new jacket trend. Showgoers at New York Fashion Week sported them over feminine frocks and crop tops nonstop this past fall, turning the classic menswear staple into outerwear. Obviously, Huntington-Whiteley approves.
