There are few cities that offer up street style quite like New York, and there are few people who do New York City street style quite like Emily Ratajkowski. The model, actress, and author exemplifies the ease and panache necessary in a city that requires you to be prepared for anything. Now, taking a page out of Ratajkowski’s wardrobe is about to get a little easier: In an exclusive capsule collection for AG, Ratajkowski melds her cool-girl style with the brand’s approach to closet staples.
Made up of 21 items including flared denim, tailored skirt sets, vegan leather coats, and midriff-baring tees (this is an Emily Ratajkowski-designed collection after all), the capsule takes inspiration from the icon’s bicoastal lifestyle. The through-line is in the details that give utilitarian pieces a sultry edge, like miniskirts with cargo pockets or baggy jeans with a hip-baring rise.
But the key to exemplifying Ratajkowski’s expert street style is to give everyday items a personalized touch. What elevates the collection isn’t just its materials and cuts but its versatility — wear it buttoned up, buttoned down, off the shoulder, with hems tucked in or sleeves rolled up — there isn’t one right answer. And that’s the key to a great look, after all: creating an outfit that is undeniably yours.
The EmRata x AG capsule will be available on AGJeans.com and at retailers like Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom starting September 7.
