From cute and casual to sexy and standout, Whitney Port’s personal style has undergone quite the makeover since we first met her on The Hills in 2006 as Lauren’s soft-spoken but super supportive Teen Vogue sidekick. Back then, Whitney’s style was very California-casual, ultra-femme, and very sweet.
In the time since, Whitney has grown up, toughened up, and abandoned sunny CA. for the harsher NYC. As she evolved, so did her sense of style. These days, Whitney likes to keep it edgy, bold, and sexy, but in that accidental I-didn’t-even-try sort of way.
Whitney loves to mix-and-match, from contrasting prints to disproportionate silhouettes to soft and feminine pieces teamed with high-voltage sexy ones.
No matter what she wears, she exudes confidence through and through and absolutely owns it. Both her attitude and absolute panache make this girl well worth drawing inspiration from.
Read on to learn how to get the city-chic styles pictured above!
While strolling around NYC, Whitney glammed up a basic oversized tunic dress from Kova & T with a statement necklace from Tuleste Market, a pair of Christian Louboutin python wedges, and a red bracelet for a pop of color. This look is totally daytime-appropriate, but still fashion-forward and fun.
This look is the epitome of city-chic! Here, Whitney teamed black patterned Whyred leggings with a slightly ruffled plum top and toughened up the look with a Monrow motorcycle vest. She accessorized a funky pair of studded Topshop jazz shoes, oversized Jimmy Choo sunnies, and some bangles. So wearable, so fun, I love!

This look is undeniable sexy, but in a very retrained, thrown-together sort of way.
