How to Perfect the "Model Off Duty" Look

Models on the runway are flawless. But there's something about the effortless style of models "off duty" that draws my attention. Cara Delevigne, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid... somehow look just as gorgeous in sweats as they do walking for Chanel.

So, what's the secret? We found the recipe to up your fashion game.

Keep it Simple

Do you ever feel like you have a closet full of clothes, but nothing to wear? The trick is investing in about 10 classic pieces that you can mix and match. 

For example:

You could take one of our Soulvation basic camis and match it with leggings for a sporty look or layer it under a leather jacket for a night out. It's key to invest in good quality essentials that will last you years vs. one that falls apart right after washing. 

Classic pieces will never go out of style. Keep your eyes open for neutral colored tanks, a favorite jacket that fits just right, the perfect jeans that give you curves in all the right places, etc. I have pieces in my closet from 2012 that I would only give up if you pried them from my cold, dead hands. 

Au Natural Makeup

Let's be honest, makeup is an art form. Your face is a palette and you should be using colors that compliment your eyes and skin tone. 

Some don't realize that the 'no-makeup look' actually requires a bit of makeup. For this look, less is more. Use products that make your skin glow; for natural days I love a good tinted moisturizer.

For eyes, a light brown shade on the lid and crease compliments all eye colors. To complete the look, use a lip liner that is just a tad darker than your natural lip color. 

Play with Oversized Pieces


Who knew wearing oversized clothing could be chic? Everything from boyfriend jeans to long tees are in style. Quarantine taught me that you don't need to be wearing restrictive clothing to feel fashionable. 

An easy way to perfect the look is wearing a cropped tank with an oversized button-up shirt like above. Our Green Ash Oversized Shirt Jacket will be your new wardrobe staple. Trust me.


Accessories are how you make an outfit. Elevate your fit with your favorite jewelry. You can make a hoodie fashionable by adding a simple pair of hoops. 

The next time you want to take your look to the next level, try adding a comfortable headband or a scrunchie with a pop of color to your look.
