Glamorous, bold, over-the-top outfits are probably filling your Instagram feed post-Grammy Awards, which, TBH, were pretty impressive this year, but let’s be real: It’s not always the easiest to incorporate said sartorial moments into your day-to-day. Unless, well, you want to wear a sparkly disco dress à la Miley Cyrus for your morning subway commute, to which I say, go for it! But, Grammys red carpet aside, there's one celebrity look I spotted this weekend that’s been etched into my memory for the long haul.

Margot Robbie was recently sighted looking very casual, proving she can wear it all. Barbie pink, as well as Barbie-inspired looks, quickly become her M.O. during the film’s press events, but when she’s just doing her, the actress has a relatively low-key but still stylish dressing approach. Snapped at the airport in Australia, Robbie wore what's easily one of my dream outfits — and not just for travel, but for everyday wear.

The Barbie star went with an easy two-piece travel uniform that’s just as office-friendly as it’s TSA-approved. She wore a fitted white baby tee that’s a year-round staple, as it’s an essential layering piece you can wear under sweaters now and by itself, as the temperatures rise. The standout piece, however, were those big, baggy trousers that proved oversized bottoms are still very much in. And while sure, 2023 might have been deemed the year of big jeans, 2024 is clearly a fierce contender, so, expect to see a lot more voluminous bottoms this year.

Big, baggy pants have an air of nonchalance to them, which is why they’ve become a cool-girl staple — think: Hailey Bieber, Katie Holmes, Jennifer Lawrence, the coolest of the cool, have all been seen in some variation of these large bottoms. Now, Robbie is the latest to join the crew, taking a sharp detour from her more feminine-leaning Barbie looks and showcasing the pants, which are a street and travel style must. 

That's because they’re extremely comfy, given their signature roomy silhouette that doesn’t feel constricting, and thus, are great for when you spend hours-long traveling. After you de-plane, just swap in a few accessories, and you’re good to head straight to your next outing. What’s more, the pants can also be worn winter, spring, summer, and fall, making them a year-round essential that pairs well with everything you already have in your closet.

Robbie topped off the look with chunky New Balance sneakers, another fashion must-have, an oversized suede handbag, and small gold earrings for a little bit of glam. Well done, Robbie!
