Look of the Week: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Stylish Stripes

The stripped pant has long been a staple among the rock n’ roll set, but as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley proved earlier this week, it’s also a chic alternative to your basic jeans.

Spotted in New York City on Wednesday, the supermodel looked especially elegant wearing a pair of navy blue and white stripped trousers and a matching menswear-inspired blazer.  To elevate the look, Rosie added a streamlined Givenchy Antigona handbag, complete with subtle, striped trim, a pair of blue suede pumps and Stella McCartney’s famed cat-eye sunglasses.  Of course, you don’t have to be a supermodel to pull the English Rose’s runway-ready look.  Vertical stripes will help elongate the leg, giving you the freedom to invest in a skinny pair like these from Saint Laurent (and they’re on now sale).  Tack on a tailored blazer or menswear-inspired cardigan, a structured top-handle bag and pointy-toe pumps and you’re good to go!

Score Rosie’s rock-star look for less after the jump!
