When it comes to model-off-duty looks, the likes of Kendall Jenner, Miranda Kerr, and Kate Moss initially come to mind. A quick search on Pinterest will show them wearing basics like a pair of denim, ankle boots, and a black leather jacket on the streets of LA or New York. See how you can pull off something similar and be effortlessly chic.
Skinny jeans used to be the go-to denim when the model-off-duty style took off in the early 2010s. But now, models are opting for a more comfortable fit like Levi’s 501. Emma Chamberlain, for example, loves to style it with a white tank top and oversized jacket. Crop tops with high-waisted pants are also trendy right now, following the resurgence of the Y2K aesthetic.
Ashley Graham is one of those models who rock athleisure wear. Aside from the gym or yoga studio, you could sport biker shorts and an oversized t-shirt for coffee runs in the middle of the day. If you don’t mind baring more skin, go for leggings and a sports bra and throw a denim jacket over it. Sweatpants and hoodie sets also make for stylish athleisure wear.
A monochrome outfit is easy to put together because you aren’t worrying about clashing prints and patterns. Look smart and polished even when you’re off-duty by adding layers and texture to elevate the outfit. Anouk Yve has nailed the style to a T with dress shirts, trousers, and blazers all in the same neutral palette. These items should be staples in any career woman’s closet.
Kelsey Merritt looks stunning in whatever she wears. Whether it’s at the beach or at a party, she’s got the perfect look (and poses, too), and we’re here to take notes. For a night on the town, a mini skirt with knee-high boots or a maxi figure-hugging dress paired with cute sandals will make a statement. Don’t forget your baguette bag at home to complete the outfit.
