On Emily Ratajkowski: Reebok Classic Trainers (£70)

Case in point? Ms Ratajkowski was spotted this weekend partying in Mykonos with her friends—Gigi Hadid and Kate Moss—whilst wearing a pretty cool outfit combo. Instead of opting for killer heels, the model styled her bodycon party dress with a pair of retro Reebok trainers. It might seem like a curveball to some, but we think she made it work. The beauty of this styling hack is that it can work with all sort of dress styles—from floral maxis to wrap minis—so we'll certainly be taking note for our summer weekend style choices.

This is not the first time EmRata has killed it in the style stakes. We've admired many an outfit of hers, whether that's on the red carpet or just out and about in L.A. Keep scrolling to uncover the secrets of her personal style.


1. Every wardrobe needs a white cotton blouse.

Style Notes: Never underestimate the power of a crisp white blouse. Emily opted for this bow-front iteration from Maison Cleo, teamed with jeans and red boots for the chicest weekend outfit.


2. Don't overlook classic prints.

Style Notes: She might wear a lot of dazzling red carpet looks, but Emily is also a big fan of a pretty day dresses and classic prints. She once wore this polka-dot dress (complete with cutouts on the waist), and as a result, tempted us to invest in one more spotty summer frock.


3. Know your style and stick to it.

Style Notes: If anyone knows how to make a statement on the Met Gala red carpet, it's Emily. She knows exactly what works for her petite frame, and won't be seen in anything too structured or directional. Instead, she sticks to form-fitting gowns like this showstopping creation by Marc Jacobs.


4. Never underestimate the LRD.

Style Notes: A little red dress may sound dull, but a square neckline and a nipped-in waist accessorised with a topknot and gold hoops make Emily's iteration feel infinitely cooler.


5. Do experiment with bold accessories.

Style Notes: According to Emily, when it comes to accessories, more is more. She took one neutral midi dress and made it feel far cooler thanks to the addition of a few carefully selected emerald green add-ons.


6. When in doubt, wear a white midi dress.

Style Notes: While we'll always rely on an LBD, this look proves the white alternative is every bit as chic and perfect for occasion dressing. The dress in question just so happens to be Dior, but this look undoubtedly sparked a number of imitations, meaning we can all get in on the action without breaking the bank.


7. Never be without a pair of statement sunnies.

Style Notes: Emily knows better than anyone that no wardrobe is complete without a pair of statement sunnies. From '90s round-frame pairs to tortoiseshell cat-eye sunglasses, every outfit needs showstopping shades.


8. When it comes to tricky dress codes, sundresses are key.

Style Notes: Dressing for a smart-casual event during the day is tough, but we're taking our cue from Emily and dressing up a cotton button-front sundress with a top handle bag and ankle strap sandals.

18. Everyone needs a boho dress.

Style Notes: We fell out of love with the printed dress for a while (such was our dedication to the minimal look), but thanks to brands such as Rixo, we're firmly for modern boho frocks.


19. The naked dress is always a fail-safe red carpet look.
