How to Dress Like an Off Duty Model

Sweats, trackers, spandex are not a thing.

After a hard day’s work, do you dream of returning home and pulling on your coziest, most unattractive sweats and finding solace in that one article of clothing that guarantees you respite from the demands of the everyday life? Well, stop that. The athleisure market is now a $97 billion industry and as far as models are concerned, there is no excuse for those mangy trackers. Squeeze on some funky spandex, throw on some bling, and slide into a stylish pair of sneakers (or heels!). There’s no reason you can’t always look and feel your best.

Polished off casual

An off duty model, is never off duty! Just as gym attire is no longer off limits to the reach of the fashion world, casual attire need not be slovenly either! An old pair of jeans, or a simple cotton dress is easily transformed by the right accessories and make-up. Models are constantly running from casting to casting and they know it’s all about presentation. At the end of the day, most of us are just wearing slacks and a shirt, but if you throw on a stiletto or tie a scarf around your neck, it makes a world of a difference.

Have fun!

Being the guinea pigs of designers and their lofty creations, models are constantly subject to the most unusual styling. If their eyebrows aren’t smeared in metallic paint, then Lego pieces are being glued to their face, or they’re carrying around bags the size of a coffee table. It is essential to their work that they never take fashion too seriously, and neither should you.

Show Some Skin

This may be a no-brainer, but models have incredible body confidence. They work hard to keep their figures toned and adhere to healthy diets to stay in shape. To reward themselves for their dedication they flaunt what they’ve got and feel great about it. Whether it’s crop tops or hot pants, models show-off their enviable physiques.
