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.
The Lauren Hutton wardrobe

When you think of the quintessential wide-leg trouser that is both well tailored and flowing, Hutton’s signature look comes to mind.

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.
