Models-off-duty: the trends of the moment

Our cup runneth over with fascination for off-duty style this season, so we’ve rounded up some of our favourite model trends of the moment. From the ever-versatile, under-appreciated cardigan, to a statement pair of sunglasses that can add individuality to any minimal outfit, our picks focus on form, function and, importantly, fun.

The Cardigan

What was once considered a frumpier outerwear piece (think: grandma’s hand-knitting) has been repurposed for a more flirtatious affair. Unsure why it’s taken us such a long time to view this style in a sexier light – it makes perfect sense for a trans-seasonal wardrobe staple (à la Bella, Jeanne and Devon). Wear with nothing underneath to expose a clavicle or shoulder, or layer over a tank for both warm and cool days.

The Coloured Lens

Think Fear and Loathing meets 90s supermodel. Citrus, blue and pink tinted shades add an element of fun to any plain look. We like the idea of being able to see the wearers eyes through colour (as opposed to black), providing a less harsh option for your avid shade wearer.

Tank Tops

Question: is there anything more unassumingly sexy than a well-fitted white ribbed tank? The air of masculinity that is evoked when one wears a tank is undeniably attractive. Best paired with a ‘give no f*cks’ kind of attitude, the tank is a simple and enduring staple – the gift that keeps on giving, both literally and figuratively.

Combat Boots

With autumn well underway in the northern hemisphere, the arrival of the chunky combat boot has filled our feeds, and we are in no position to disagree. From Bottega Veneta to Prada, a knee-high lace-up silhouette with a heavy tread could make even the least organised person feel like they’ve got it together.
