There’s no denying that Margot Robbie just gets it. While I’m enamored by her red carpet ensembles, it’s her street-style looks that I routinely turn to for sartorial inspiration given their effortless and fashion-forward nature. In fact, after scrolling through a range of her street style imagery, it became quickly apparent that she anchors most of her grade-A ensembles with a variety of chic basics.
Interestingly enough, many of the on-trend staple items in question also just so happen to be pieces I turn to on the regular or recommend to my friends as closet staples. And you know what? If I had the privilege of spending a shopping afternoon with her (yes, a dream), I bet she’d be interested in many of the elevated, next-level basic spring items I’m gravitating toward to this season.
To showcase further, I’m highlighting the six modern spring basics I think Robbie would love based on similar pieces she’s worn over the last few years. Keep scrolling for a bit of visual and shopping inspiration, and uncover a few new wardrobe essentials for yourself.
On Robbie: Saint Laurent shorts; Chanel belt and bag; Proenza Schouler shoes
You can’t deny the power of a standard white button-down for a classic look. This season, it’s all about the slightly offbeat and re-worked shirts to add dimension to a look—similar to the styles Robbie has worn in the past.
Treasure & Bond Puff Sleeve Textured Blouse ($69)
Topshop Layer Blouse ($55)
City Chic Elegance Wrap Top ($75)
On Robbie: Jimmy Choo pumps
Robbie complemented her elegant ensemble here with a fuzzy cardigan. As a result, there’s no doubt in my mind that she’d gravitate towards the of-the-moment cuts that are dominating the fashion-girl scene.

H&M Boxy Wool-Blend Cardigan ($60)
Heartloom Blaine Cardigan ($88)
On Robbie: Chanel knit
Sure, skinny- and straight-leg jeans could arguably be considered more of the basic and timeless cuts, but flares are rising up to be one of the key go-to denim trends of the moment. Robbie has already been spotted in the trend, so I know she wouldn’t shy away from the fresh iterations hitting shelves now.
Veronica Beard Beverly High Waist Skinny Flare Jeans ($228)
1822 Denim Flare Jeans ($49)
Good American Good Flare Jeans ($169)
7 for All Mankind Dojo High Waist Flare Jeans ($215)
On Robbie: Attico ensemble
Robbie is all about the suiting trend. While she’s not afraid of those eye-catching tailored pieces, I think she’d also like the offering of more toned-down, slouchy blazer picks to complete her polished fits.
Lioness The Don Jacket ($99)
Mango Double-Breasted Blazer ($80)
AllSaints Astrid Blazer ($278)
A maxi coat—either a lightweight wool iteration now or a trench style when it gets warmer—brings a fashion-forward spin to any ensemble. Given Robbie’s apparent love of statement toppers, I bet she’d go for the range of similar silhouettes out there right now.
Glamorous Maxi Coat ($95)
Pixie Market Everyday Coat ($399)
Sea Scott Trench Coat ($695)
On Robbie: Chanel ensemble
Robbie clearly isn’t afraid of a bold-legging look, so I bet she’d be interested in the plethora of cool coated leggings I’m loving this season.
Nordstrom Faux Leather Leggings ($69)
Spanx Faux Leather Moto Leggings ($114)
Free People Faux Suede Leggings ($78)
