Take note.

If you're struggling with the idea of proper clothes after months spent either wearing workout leggings and whatever hoodie smells the best of the garments you took off and flung on your overspill chair the night before, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is here to help.

The supermodel has skipped across the pond to New York, and the outfits she's packed to wear on said work trip are a timely lesson in looking put together post-lockdown. For starters, everything sits on the neutral spectrum in a symphony of beige, cream, tan and black. This is particularly useful to bear in mind when you're packing for that mini break on the horizon. If everything goes together in your suitcase then there's a pretty good chance that you will be able to mix and match without giving yourself a headache every morning.

For her latest outfit, Huntington-Whiteley paired a skinny pair of split-hem leggings with a zippered leather trench coat, both from Denmark's Totême. Yes, you heard that right, you don't have to discard your leggings just yet. Styling them with a sleek pair of trainers (Huntington-Whiteley's are also by Totême, but Saye's are a slightly more affordable but no less chic substitute), and adding some minimal gold hoops will make them more than presentable enough for a brunch date or the school drop-off.

The night before, on April 14, Huntington-Whiteley cracked out her all-time favourite, Bottega Veneta, wearing a cream leather skirt and a tan leather coat from the brand's spring collection. This time she accessorised with a trinity of its hero accessories - the shell-shaped bag, the crocheted leather clutch and the square-toed sandals - each in a similarly taupe tone. If your budget doesn't stretch to BV, the takeaway from this look is that colour-coordination is back on the cards. Also, now's the time to wear leather, when the temperature is starting to creep up but definitely can't be described as balmy.

And if you need further proof, Huntington-Whiteley packed another leather skirt, this time a knee-length black number from Totême, pairing it with a black sweater and square-toed sandals from The Attico. A lot of influencers have been wearing all-black outfits on Instagram - perhaps because it's statement-making without being too shouty - and, again, this is the time to capitalise on its chic points before the sun's arrival makes it a no-go. Huntington-Whiteley's final style flourish? A sleek ballerina-style bun. Give it a go.
