Margot Robbie perfects business casual in head-to-toe Bottega Veneta

Not only is Margot Robbie perfecting her Barbie looks, but she's also winning in her own personal wardrobe.

The actress stepped out in New York City ahead of the Gotham Awards, wearing an autumnal ensemble that quickly caught our eye. Robbie's Bottega Veneta outfit – her stylist Andrew Mukamal is responsible for her chic aesthetic – was a shining example of understated luxury, focusing on key wardrobe classics such as denim, a goes-with-everything shirt and an effortlessly cool oversized blazer.

Here's why we love her look:

The look

Robbie's head-to-toe Bottega Veneta outfit is firmly on our fashion mood board. She wore an autumnal wool blazer, an unbuttoned striped shirt, wide-leg baggy jeans, a staple white vest, pointed black boots, cat-eye sunglasses and carried the luxury label's signature woven bag.

Why it works

Robbie's outfit is an ode to business casual; her blazer and shirt keep things feeling tailored with a touch of workwear, while her baggy jeans and white tank top add an element of casual weekend dressing. Her heeled boots and boot-cut jeans give the illusion of longer legs – while her designer Bottega Veneta handbag ties everything together nicely with an extra touch of luxury.

While both an oversized blazer and looser-fitting jeans may sound like a tricky style to master, Robbie's clever layering of a fitted white vest gives valuable definition to her look, preventing her smaller frame from getting lost. Hailey Bieber is also a poster girl for mastering the oversized aesthetic, with her former stylist previously sharing words of wisdom with Bazaar: "Keep the shirt underneath tight or something else fitted within your outfit so that you can see your body in some way."

She continues: "Personally, I like to do that with a baggy trouser, a crop top and then a baggy blazer. It's all about dressing for your body type, so think what is the most flattering thing or feature you love most and show that off."

Why it's a forever classic

The good news is if you want to try out Robbie's look in your own wardrobe, chances are you have all the components hanging up already. Dig out your baggiest jeans and get to work; remembering the white vest layering trick to add definition to your outfit. Robbie's oversized look is timeless and effortless, as all her pieces steer clear from passing trends and can be worn year after year.

How to style it

Robbie's look can be interchanged too; swap out the white shirt for a pop of colour, or swap the brown blazer for black for a dressier feel.

If you want to layer up as temperatures drop, but keep the same aesthetic, be inspired by Carey Mulligan's similar look below. She keeps the same mix of business and casual with a tailored top half (this time a stylish coat instead of Robbie's blazer) mixed with wide-leg jeans, classic boots and an oversized designer handbag. She applies the same rule by adding a fitted black vest underneath her oversized coat to keep the definition to her frame, and of course, finishes her look with a similar pair of sunglasses.
