New York Fashion Week is well underway, and while most of the world has turned their eyes toward the runway, the superlative style is actually happening outside the show.
Even though models spend their day strutting their stuff in some of the most coveted couture fashion, the most accessible ensembles come after they’ve slipped off the stilettos and worked their way into their off-duty wares. These prêt-à-porter looks provide more practicality than some of the runway looks coming down the catwalk. From flannels casually knotted at the waist, to perfectly tailored trousers, there is an unsolicited chicness that seems to emanate from even the simplest styles during NYFW S/S 2015.
As if we needed more of a reason to envy these long-legged ladies, their ability to unabashedly slip from stage to street is one of the reasons why we love them so much. Want to channel your inner Cara, Kendall or Karlie? Their enviable aesthetic can be yours by throwing on your trusted jeans.
If NYFW has taught us anything, throwing on your favorite pair of denim is a must for any model at leisure. Coupled with a distressed tee, leather jacket and walking booties you might just find yourself on the right side of Bill Cunningham’s lens. To get your inner mannequin motivated, peruse our carefully cultivated gallery of street-shots. While these ladies may be off-duty, their style is totally on point.
