Style Recipe: What You Need To Steal Suki Waterhouse's Look

What do you call a fashionable Brit with self-proclaimed style that’s equal parts Alice in Wonderland and ‘60s mod, plus a little ‘90s club kid and a dash of skater girl thrown in for good measure? You call her Who What Wear’s latest girl crush.

    Sure, being Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend is an attention-grabbing label, but this intoxicatingly beautiful model and actress has made us fall in love with her all on her own, thanks to her fun personality and equally charming style. Click through for a step-by-step process on how to achieve Suki Waterhouse’s look, and shop your favorite “ingredients” along the way!

    No Waterhouse-inspired look would be complete without this gloss, period.

    Step 2: Bold Prints

    Type “Suki Waterhouse” into any image search engine, and you’re guaranteed to get bold, playful prints in return. Whether she’s rocking a Reformation butterfly print jumpsuit, or a diamond print DSQUARED2 crop top and skirt (as shown), this Brit isn’t afraid to make a daring statement.

    Step 3: Pastel

    One of the (countless) things we adore about Waterhouse is how varied her style is. Sure, a bold print or midriff-baring top isn’t a shock, but neither is a ladylike silhouette or a dainty hue. Case in point: we’ve spotted this versatile stylesetter in several shades of pastel, most recently, in a Ralph & Russo Haute Couture jacket and dress, while out to dinner with Bradley Cooper.

    Step 4: Plunging Neckline

    Waterhouse cites Marianne Faithfull in The Girl on a Motorcycle as a major fashion icon, which makes this sexy style ingredient all the more relevant. From a floor-length, metallic gown to a sleek Burberry suit worn sans blouse, we’re totally onboard with Waterhouse breaking out the occasional plunging neckline.

    Step 6: School Girl

    Listen, we know that the phrase “sexy schoolgirl” might evoke cheesy connotations, but trust us when we say, Waterhouse does it well. Allow us to illustrate our point with a chic ensemble she wore to a Mulberry event in London. She paired a tweed sweater and shorts set with a crisp, collared blouse and a structured coat. With accessories like a veiled beret, classic leather tote, and adorable socks and heels, the resulting look is anything but stereotypical.

    If you don’t have one already, a crisp button-down is an essential and versatile wardrobe staple.

    We’ve been waiting for the beret to make a comeback, so thank you, Waterhouse, for making our chapeau dreams come true.

    Step 6: Bohemian Flare

    Waterhouse’s edgy interpretation of bohemian-inspired pieces is (in our opinion) the most unexpected style ingredient of the bunch. She’s worn paisley print crop tops, floppy hats, and wide-legged pants with contrasting pieces like black skinny jeans, chunky boots, and a crisp trench coat. The results? Brilliant!

    Step 5: Classic English

    Amongst her numerous style references, we love that Waterhouse still pays tribute to her hometown, London, with classic British pieces like the trench coat, pea coat, and of course, the Union Jack t-shirt.

    Zara

    Coat With Round Neck and Frilly Hem ($159)
    The double-breasted cut, ruffled hem, and pretty pink made us fall in love with this thoroughly English outerwear piece. Layer it over a printed jumpsuit for a Waterhouse-inspired ensemble.
