Get the "off-duty model" look
This week on The Creative Issue we’ve put together a few tips and tricks to help you style your very own ‘off-duty model’ look.
Inspired by a few of today’s top models and style inspirations.
Tip #1 – Styling any outfit starts with a ‘hero’ piece – pick at least one item of clothing to feature. This could be a pair of unique jeans, a tasseled jacket, or even a pair of silk patterned shoes. From that find accessories and other staples to compliment the ‘hero’ piece. When finding pieces for Hailey Bieber’s ‘off-duty model’ look, we started by finding her ‘hero’ piece. Can you guess what it is?
If you guessed her jacket then you’re absolutely right! Our eyes are immediately drawn to her leather jacket, with all her other accessories chosen to compliment it. Despite wearing an oversized leather jacket we can see that she wears a simple white crop top beneath it and some high waisted light denim shorts – perfect for to wear those summer days or nights out.

Can you guess what Gigi’s ‘hero’ piece item is?
Tip #2 – When it comes to styling colours, our first tip is to master styling monochromatic colours. Pick a colour and try to style your outfit based on the different variations of that colour. In Kendall Jenners’s ‘off-duty model’ look she pairs various shades and patterns of brown to style an almost-monochromatic look. Her ‘hero’ piece we see, is either her designer aviator jacket or high waisted ‘mom’ jeans. Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns either – in Kendall’s look we see her wearing a patterned Louis Vuitton shirt with light tan snake skin boots.
Tip #3 – We all love a timeless outfit. With Karlie Kloss’ ‘off-duty’ look she’s paired the iconic beige trench coat with casual blue jeans and sneakers for a Parisian style. When it comes to styling pieces such as a trench coat, ensure that the jacket is synched to your waistline to bring attention your body’s natural curves and shape.
