Front Row Lovin’: Get The Model Off-Duty Look

Front row lovin’: Get the model off-duty look

90's model off-duty look

Fashion month has landed and the echoing sounds of women despairing over their wardrobes can be heard ringing through the streets. But never fear, you don’t need to have won the genetic lottery or have the adoration of Marc Jacobs to achieve a natural, chic and uncomplicated off- duty look. Just pop down Carnaby Street, the proclaimed Mecca of understated cool or go on an online shopping spree with edgy fashion labels Firetrap and Uncut and you’ll be good to grunge!

Here is our guide to look like an effortless goddess off the runway:

Cara Delevingne off-duty look

Cara Delevingne rose to fame not only due to her big name connections, but by street style enthusiasts all wanting to emulate her easy looks. The age of the model beanie has begun. Cara’s 90s grunge look is cool, chic and comfy so of course we love it. We suggest pairing harem pants, we love Cheap Monday’s XXL Pant (available in their Carnaby store), with a tight slogan tee and Converse to recreate this look. And don’t forget that hat! We love Monki’s vibrant Lyla Cap for a pop of colour.

Get Cara’s look here: Last clean t-shirt, £21.00, Cheap Monday XXL pant, Monki’s Homies Cap, £20.00, Converse available at, £44.99

Karlie Kloss' off-duty look

Want a more feminine off-duty look? Victoria’s Secret model Karlie Kloss uses basics, wearing mainly denim, leather and neutral tones to emphasize her natural assets. Try a pair of classic skinny blue jeans from Scotch and Soda (located at 13 Carnaby Street), Cheap Monday’s crisp white Shelly shirt and an All Saints leather biker jacket to rock Karlie’s look. Feeling more glam than grunge? Channel Swedish blogger Angelica Blink’s look with Uncut. We love this sheer midi skirt, this PU crop top and this knitted bomber.

Snag Karlie’s look here: All Saints Leather Jacket, £358, Scotch & Soda Jeans, £97.95, COS White Shirt, £35.00, Rocket Dog Darye Boots, £59.99

Alexa Chung's off-duty look

The ultimate London girl Alexa Chung may not primarily be a model but from front row at Fashion Week to the cover of Vogue she is definitely one of our top style icons. Arguably starting the loafer trend in the UK and causing our obsession for Peter pan collars to go into overdrive, Alexa’s look is timeless, mixing feminine and masculine pieces (remember that Mulberry vintage briefcase). Scotch and Soda’s pink sleeveless shirt paired with high waisted denim shorts and Charlotte Olympia loafers are a brilliant combination for springtime.

Get the perfect off-duty is just a click away: Scotch & Soda Blouse, £57.95, Mulbery Alexa Satchel, £1100, Charlotte Olympia Slippers, £495, Topshop Trench Coat, £30
