Whitney Port became the unlikely heroine of MTV’s reality show ‘The Hills’ and was subsequently offered a staring role in ‘The City’ making her a household name, kind of.

She may not be the most charismatic girl you’ve ever seen on screen, but her sense of style has earned her millions of fans and even led to her own clothing line.

The fact that she’s got legs up to her armpits ensures that even the most ordinary outfit looks pretty fabulous on our Whit. But, in fairness she’s got a knack for clashing prints and making unlikely outfit combinations work, exceptionally well.

Remember that floral chiffon dress with the nautical blazer-perfection.

She loves shorts and pairs them with blazers for work or sequins for evening. She loves to look ultra-feminine but always clashes it up with boyish pieces to add a twist. Even if she’s in a chiffon gown, she’ll have a boyfriend blazer or leather jacket slung over it to toughen it up. She adores pretty, girlie dresses but always adds heavy ankle boots to give them an edge.

If she’s in jeans, they’re impossibly skinny with chunky knits or the obligatory leather jacket. Heels are high for night time but she’s a fan of pumps and Converse when she’s busy working. Leopard print, stripes and plaid (often worn together) are undoubtedly her favourite prints so if you want to nail the Whitney Port look be brave, mix it up and don’t forget the blow dry.

Tips of getting Whitney Port's Style:

- Stock up on lots of high waisted skirts and shorts in bold patterns

- Whitney loves to layer; T-shirts, shirts, cardigans and jackets

- Pair skinny jeans or leggings with over sized, slouchy tops

- Add a touch of vintage with a bag, a scarf or some cute shoes

- Stick to classic colours; blacks, whites, silvers and greys
