The 6 Staples of the Cool Girl Uniform, According to Stylist Monica Rose
Monica Rose, stylist to notable names like Gigi and Bella Hadid and four out of five Kardashian-Jenners, is rapidly becoming the arbiter of taste for this generation. Between the two Jenners alone, her stylized looks are being seen by almost 100 million people a day. What Rachel Zoe did for platform shoes and oversize sunglasses in 2004, Rose is doing for bomber jackets, sexy necklines, and sporty silhouettes. But just what exactly makes an "It" girl uniform today? Here are the six must-have pieces, modeled by Rose’s most notorious clients and shopped out to perfection. Famous last names and mile long legs, not included.
The Duster Coat
A floor length coat is a major staple; accessorize with a designer bag, blacked-out sunglasses, and iPhone.

The Wide-leg pant
These pants create a major silhouette, which is useful for photo ops.

Leggings are pants, at least according to Rose. You need to be able to seamlessly go from squatting to strutting, so pair with a crop top and biker jacket for outside the gym.

Rose is all about different silhouettes, and perhaps there's no better example than Hadid in this House of CB two-piece (left).

A jumpsuit is always cooler than a dress, always. If you’re feeling bold enough, copy Kendall and go for a skinny leg and a halter-neck style.

If you must do a dress, then Rose wants to make sure that enough skin is showing. A cut-out is the easiest way to create a come-hither appeal.
