Rosie rocks a classic black shirt

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Reinvents The Black Shirt

From floor length, floaty gowns, to bold patterned minis, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s wardrobe choices have certainly been on fire recently. Yesterday was no exception, as the model and actress gave us all a wardrobe masterclass, showing us how to breathe new life into our classic black shirt.

Yep, the model proved that even a style staple can be taken to new heights as she paired her shirt with an asymmetric maxi skirt, causing us to rethink our after-dark wardrobe.

Ok, we admit that it helps that she might have those legs on her side, but her whole outfit has made us step up our shirt game. It’s all about a loose fit tucked casually into a more glamorous piece, like a floor-sweeping maxi or even a pair of wide leg trousers.

The key to keeping the shirt modern, and chic rather than looking like you’re on route to the office is to keep it casual like RHW. Try tucking in the front, and leaving the back loose. Make sure you keep the lower half of your outfit fitted to avoid looking swamped in fabric too – try printed cigarette pants, or a leather pencil skirt and up the sass factor with a killer pair of heels.
Loving the look as much as we are? Here are three of the best black shirts on the high street right now, to recreate the model’s ensemble minus any a-lister price tag.
