Emily Ratajkowski exudes effortless, sexy cool. She is, after all, the kind of person who gets married in a mustard suit from Zara and a statement hat instead of a white princess dress. As a model, actress, and businesswoman, Ratajkowski is perpetually on the go and, as a result, her street style choices are surprisingly functional – think blazers and denim with a twist.

When she’s not walking the runway or shooting fashion campaigns, Ratajkowski is walking the streets of New York – most of the time with her dog Colombo in tow. And everywhere she goes, she makes the street her catwalk, showing off a versatile array of off-duty looks that follow these seven simple rules of style.

1

Make Knitwear Sexy

Knitwear has seen something of a renaissance recently. Rather than being limited to shapeless jumpers or pilled turtlenecks, celebrities have been experimenting with a chicer way to wear wool – like when Ratajkowski donned a deconstructed cardigan with nothing underneath. She walked so Katie Holmes could run, with the actress hitting headlines soon after for walking the New York streets in a cashmere bra and matching cardigan.

2

Invest in Good Denim

Ratajkowski’s general style is relaxed and chic, and at the center of this is usually a solid pair of jeans. Instagram proves that her favorite pair is a straight-cut, high-waisted style in a light denim wash. However, she’s also not afraid to experiment with denim, taking the plunge with white jeans and even double-denim ensembles.

Blazers Don’t Have to Be Boring

Blazers are often seen as stuffy businesswear, but not if Ratajkowski has anything to do with it. She’ll go for oversized jackets with nothing underneath, or aggressively belt them for an extra twist. At one point, she was even snapped out and about in the unexpected combination of a beige blazer with a white bra and knee-length black leggings underneath – a.k.a. the uniform of cool girls everywhere.

No Top Is Too Cropped

Ratajkowski has never met a crop top she doesn’t like. She won’t stick to style rules dictating that you should pair a crop top with high-waisted bottoms, often baring all in bralettes and low-rider jeans, even when it’s cold outside.

You Don’t Always Have to Dress Up

It’s rare to see a celeb out and about without a carefully curated outfit and perfect hair and makeup to match. After all, they know they’re likely to be papped the second they’re out the house. That’s why it’s refreshing to often see Ratajkowski wearing trackies and trainers – albeit the chic, designer kind.

Embrace Statement Trousers

Ratajkowski isn’t the loudest of dressers. Instead, she sticks to sleek basics in neutral colors. However, she definitely likes to be a bit more experimental when it comes to trousers. She makes a strong case for wearing a pair of statement trousers – whether with a stripy pattern or in red leather – while keeping the rest of her outfit more basic.

Mix and Match Your Outfit

Whether it’s wearing cargo pants with Chanel shoes or a slinky LBD with trainers, Ratajkowski knows the power of mixing high with low when it comes to her sartorial choices.
