How To Master The Off-Duty Model Look

Sure, they have enviable figures and near-perfect skin, but the main thing we always envy models for is their seemingly innate ability to look effortlessly cool even when wearing the simplest of outfits.

Luckily, we mere mortals can easily imitate their street style by incorporating key pieces into our casual looks.

Here are the five wardrobe essentials – from cool cover-ups to simple staples – you need to rock off-duty dressing like a bona fide catwalk queen.

1. Biker Jacket

Whether you opt for on-trend suede or perennially cool black leather, nothing has that Kate Moss vibe like a trusty biker. This is one piece every girl needs in her wardrobe.
