Black and White “Model Off Duty”


Gigi Hadid, Kendal Jenner, Kate Moss… These are just a few of the models who pull off this look so effortlessly. They look casual yet so fashionable at the same time, a perfect outfit to wear for a day of shopping or brunch with the girls. There are a few key pieces that always show up in their “model-off-duty” looks.


Models are always wearing a jacket with their workout leggings and sneakers whether it’s a wool coat or a silk bomber jacket. This is what makes the look appropriate for strolling around the streets of New York City. I’m wearing my favorite heather grey coat from Aritzia. Not only is the coat warm enough for the brutal East Coast winter (which we have yet to experience this year), but it is also a sophisticated piece to wear to work or use to dress up your casual weekend wear.


I found these cool mesh-paneled workout leggings from Aritizia. Not only are they super comfortable but they are perfect for putting together the “model-off-duty” look. Pair these with a dressier blouse and play with how you tuck it into the leggings. Here I did a half tuck to play with the black and white color blocking of the outfit.


Adding rose gold accessories to a black and white look is my favorite way to make an outfit more feminine. Depending on your skin tone, rose gold can bring out the warmth in your coloring. I added my favorite necklace and a watch. Don’t be afraid to add strappy bras under flowy blouses like this one. It gives a sex-appeal to an otherwise business casual blouse.


Lastly, the look is not complete without your coolest pair of kicks. This is the piece to use to really make your outfit stand out. There are so many different options for cool sneakers nowadays that you should have no trouble finding the perfect pair for you. I love these Nikes because of the grey, black and white knit threads they are woven out of. Like most fashionistas my two favorite colors to wear are black and white, so naturally these sneakers pair well with my entire wardrobe.
