Instagram is providing proof in the bucket load that Emily Ratajkowski’s style is perfectly on point. If it’s not uploads of her glitzy gowns, she’s giving us a lesson in laid-back model chic – this time of the geek variety.

While those model-worthy genes are harder to come by, Emily’s earthy-toned ensemble is something anyone can replicate day to day. You can’t go wrong with a cosy high neck jumper – it’s the perfect throw-on-and-leave-the-house garment – and Emily’s comes courtesy of her go-to brand, Reformation. It’s also been ‘grammed by our very own Millie Mackintosh, which tells us this is going to sell out faster than flower crowns at Coachella.

So what compliments a wistfully wintery outfit? Anything over the knee and suede, of course. Emily’s boots are by Saint Laurent, but their four-figure price tag is definitely not necessary, especially if your bank balance looks anything like mine.

Which is why we’ve found some just-as-chic alternatives from high-street fave River Island as well as a pair in the Steve Madden sale. Just take a look at the DRESSR Edit for inspiration. Go on, your calves deserve it.

In search of pasta ???
