We previously covered Kate Middleton’s British chic, however, in today’s post we cross the pond and cover the iconic American chic of Lauren Hutton. Classic, timeless, approachable, and effortless style…much like the iconic model and actress.

So, what does it take to dress like Lauren Hutton?

As usual, here are quick tips to help you frame Ms. Hutton’s style:

  • Tailored (yet flowy) wide-leg pants
  • Tailored jacket
  • Neutral tones
  • Chic flats and white sneakers

When you think of Lauren Hutton’s style, think of the best of 70’s glamour toned down with bohemian charm. She is a high quality silk blouse paired with casual, non-pretentious white tennis shoes kind of girl. Her hair is solidly unfussy, while she wears a blue silk suit from head to toe. Hutton’s style is built for luxury while forging a juxtaposition with effortless comfort.

Take a look at some of the Hutton’s looks here, and give yourself a dose of classic American (and chic) style with our guide on how to dress like Lauren Hutton below.

When you think of the quintessential wide-leg trouser that is both well tailored and flowing, Hutton’s signature look comes to mind. From the 70’s to the present, she has created an iconic look out of the wide leg trousers. However, tapping into her ability to add relaxed style to her looks, Hutton also selects cuffed khaki pants and distressed jeans that compliment a well-lived in look.How to dress like Lauren Hutton ideas for pants: Silk wide leg pants and 70's inspired style | 40plusstyle.com

Outerwear, Dresses, and Skirts

First thought that comes to mind when you think of Hutton’s outerwear options, are the eponymous trench coat (wear it loosely) and the safari jacket that has been part of her wardrobe identity since the 60s/70s. In the present, she also harkens back to 70’s glamour with luxe wool dresses paired with dramatic wool capes that are as understatedly glamorous as they are comfortable–two key components of her style.How to dress like Lauren Hutton: 70's outwear and trenchcoats | 40plusstyle.com


As mentioned above, Lauren Hutton’s style is defined by well-fitting and high quality tailored blazers. Think of luxe materials and figure flattering blazers (with the occasional loose fitting gem), that instantly pull the look together and add a unique edge. She is especially known for selecting monochromatic looks with blazers as the foundation that look anything but stuffy or overdone.

Known for her increasingly iconic white tennis sneakers, Hutton’s approach to shoes is mostly on the comfortable side. This includes textured and graphic Converse high-tops, pointed toe flats, and high quality brogues. Continuously channeling elements of 70’s glamour, Hutton has been known to include knee high suede boots and metallic sandals in her styling as well.
