Today, I’m going to be recreating model Rosie Huntington-Whitely’s style using her Vogue video: 7 Days, 7 Looks as inspiration.

I wanted to recreate her outfits to show that you don’t need to spend $15,000 on one coat to be a fashion enthusiast. So, I’m going to show you how to dress like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley but in a more affordable price range.

Rosie is definitely a fashion icon of mine, and every time I see her style, I think, “I would totally wear that.” This tutorial isn’t to take issue with Rosie’s expensive closet, but rather to show how you guys can achieve her best looks with a smaller budget.

Let’s get started!

How to dress like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

1. Airport loungewear

Rosie’s Monday outfit is an outfit she said she would typically wear to the airport. Rosie's version of this outfit was from The Row, which is an expensive brand. Plus, her bag was Hermès.

Personally, I wouldn't want to wear such an expensive outfit on a flight, especially an elegant light-colored silk set. You never know if turbulence will knock someone's coffee or juice into your lap!

I've recreated the upscale two-piece loungewear set with a long silky shirt and matching wide-leg pants, both from ASOS. Still, I'm not sure if I'd wear this on a flight, but it's a lovely look.

For cooler weather, you can drape a trench coat over the outfit.

2. Laidback hangout

For this outfit, Rosie went with an all-white look to hang out with her toddler—very brave!

I don't have any kids (that I know of), but much like a toddler, I tend to spill stuff all over myself. So, even though I would love to pull off an all-white outfit, I decided not to!

This look includes a white bodysuit with some khaki pants or jeans, a statement brown belt (Rosie's was white in the video), and brown sandals.

I love this Zara bodysuit - I own it in every color (as you'll see in the next couple of looks too).

3. Leather set

This look was kind of a fail because I couldn’t find a matching two-piece set to emulate Rosie’s leather set but it’s still cute just with the skirt and top.

This skirt is pretty similar to the one she wore; it’s not quite as long, but the overall shape is a close match. Both of these are basic items that are easy to find online or on the high street.

4. Simple everyday 

This look is a simple bodysuit, trench coat, and white pants. Each piece is basic and therefore it's easy to find these pieces at all price ranges. Plus, the individual pieces look great together.

Rosie's bodysuit was a beautiful cut-out back Hermès bodysuit, but the price is over $2,000. A cut-out back isn't for everyone, so a high street alternative is a better option for an everyday look.

5. Leather day-to-night look

This look was described as a typical day-to-night look for Rosie. So, something you might wear to the office, but also go out in for the evening too.

Obviously, Rosie works for herself and in a creative field, so if she wants to wear a leather crop top to the office, she can totally get away with it! I wouldn't recommend it for everyone.

This was actually Rosie's most expensive outfit. Some of it was off-the-runway Hermès, so it's not even possible to calculate what the price would be if the pieces were on the market. I would gauge it to be between $10-15,000.

However, as you can see, it's easy to create a very similar look for a lot less. I recreated Rosie's style with a leather crop top (you could also switch this out for a tank top) and a longline blazer with a pencil skirt.

6. Date night

This was Rosie's "date-night going out look" and it was really fun to recreate.

I ended up DIYing Rosie's statement Givenchy top using a knot-tie white satin halter and some matching fabric. I simply sewed the fabric to the bottom of the V-shaped halter hem, then knotted it to hide the stitching.

I paired the top with black tuxedo pants and black wedges.

7. Staying at home

For this look, Rosie chose another loungewear set for a cozy stay-at-home Sunday. I think this type of light material is best for the cooler months. 

This outfit was probably the easiest to recreate and I quickly found a very similar long rib-knit cardigan and knitted high-waisted pants that go together.
