When it comes to airport fashion, I get tips by style stalking celebrities like my favorite model, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. For one, she makes all-black dressing — which I’m a sucker for— look chic and fabulous instead of boring. And for another, her plane-ride outfits are always sleek, sexy, yet practical. Well, almost practical, because the leggy blonde loves to travel in heels, something that I cannot bring myself to do.
Over the weekend, Rosie was spotted sporting another one of her signature all-black looks while catching a flights at LAX. Her plane-ride attire consisted of a textured leather jacket worn over a gray shirt and black skinny jeans detailed with zippers. For added drama, she used dark square sunglasses and suede cone-heeled ankle boots embellished with tassels. It was a simple mix but the pieces she used made the getup worth checking out.

Don’t you just love Rosie’s airport style?
The beauty with this getup is that anyone can wear it. Grab some zipper detailed black skinny jeans and then pick a textured topper to go with. Finish with one-of-a-kind ankle boots and you’re all set!
Rosie’s pants are from Paige, you can find ’em online if you wish to take a closer look. They also come in a coated version so if you like the “leather look”, it’s an alternative:

I couldn’t find any details on her gorgeous jacket, but her bag is from Celine and her square-framed sunnies are from Saint Laurent.

The highlight of her outfit would have to be the shoes. They’re not your typical ankle boots. The silhouette is quite unique, with its cone-shaped heels, raised front shafts, and tassel trimmings. Here’s a closer look at the pair. They’re the “Leyton” from Isabel Marant:

If you like what you see, feel free to check out the boots at Bergdorf. If it’s Rosie’s airport style you want to steal for less, remember that the key to looking fabulous in all-black is to play with textures. For starters, here’s a fringed pair from Sam Edelman that’s worth considering:
