There’s no denying that Margot Robbie just gets it. While I’m enamored by her red carpet ensembles, it’s her street-style looks that I routinely turn to for sartorial inspiration given their effortless and fashion-forward nature. In fact, after scrolling through a range of her street style imagery, it became quickly apparent that she anchors most of her grade-A ensembles with a variety of chic basics.
Interestingly enough, many of the on-trend staple items in question also just so happen to be pieces I turn to on the regular or recommend to my friends as closet staples. And you know what? If I had the privilege of spending a shopping afternoon with her (yes, a dream), I bet she’d be interested in many of the elevated, next-level basic spring items I’m gravitating toward to this season.
To showcase further, I’m highlighting the six modern spring basics I think Robbie would love based on similar pieces she’s worn over the last few years. Keep scrolling for a bit of visual and shopping inspiration, and uncover a few new wardrobe essentials for yourself.
1. Re-Worked Shirt
On Robbie: Saint Laurent shorts; Chanel belt and bag; Proenza Schouler shoes
You can’t deny the power of a standard white button-down for a classic look. This season, it’s all about the slightly offbeat and re-worked shirts to add dimension to a look—similar to the styles Robbie has worn in the past.
Robbie complemented her elegant ensemble here with a fuzzy cardigan. As a result, there’s no doubt in my mind that she’d gravitate towards the of-the-moment cuts that are dominating the fashion-girl scene.
Sure, skinny- and straight-leg jeans could arguably be considered more of the basic and timeless cuts, but flares are rising up to be one of the key go-to denim trends of the moment. Robbie has already been spotted in the trend, so I know she wouldn’t shy away from the fresh iterations hitting shelves now.
Robbie is all about the suiting trend. While she’s not afraid of those eye-catching tailored pieces, I think she’d also like the offering of more toned-down, slouchy blazer picks to complete her polished fits.
A maxi coat—either a lightweight wool iteration now or a trench style when it gets warmer—brings a fashion-forward spin to any ensemble. Given Robbie’s apparent love of statement toppers, I bet she’d go for the range of similar silhouettes out there right now.
