While Erin Heatherton has been making headlines this year for reasons other than her modeling—a dalliance with Leonard DiCaprio, no less—we have been keeping our eye on her for something else altogether: her personal style. You see, whether she is hitting the beach, taking in the streets of New York City, or attending a fashion industry event, Erin always manages to turn heads. Even better, she does so without a lot of fuss—no overstated accessories, here! With that said, if you love Erin’s style as much as we do, click inside to today’s Model Style story to find out the key elements behind her style and how to make her look your own.
1. Pick dresses with simple silhouettes but eye-catching details: Whether it is a long black gown with a sheer skirt or a white shift with gold stripes, Erin always makes a simple silhouette count for a lot more. These pieces will help you do the same: Shakuhachi’s Leather & Chiffon Maxi Dress ($458), Mango’s Gold Trims Dress ($40), and Zara’s Lace Dress ($80).
2. Choose separates that are as comfortable as they are chic: Erin always looks fashion-forward, but she doesn’t weigh herself down with fussy details. A leather jacket and jeans is enough for colder days, while a colorful skirt and top works in summer. Check out these pieces: Religion’s Draped Leather Jacket ($477), Siwy’s Hannah Jeans ($154), Alice + Olivia’s Etta Bustier ($242), and Naven’s Circle Skirt ($198).
3. Pick accessories that are functional: Much like her clothes, Erin does not let her accessories get in the way of being sensible—whether that means choosing flat sandals, easy ankle boots, or a bag that fits everything. Here are some practical accessories with plenty of panache: Rag & Bone’s Classic Newbury Booties ($495) and Rebecca Minkoff’s Mab Mini Shoulder Bag ($495).
