Tips to Pull-Off the Model Off-Duty Look

by Maria Azalea Florentino

Upgrade your style by pulling-off these top model-off-duty looks with the Model Weekend style capsule that lets you stay fashion forward even when not on a runway.

Imagine living a minimalist lifestyle but still look absolutely fab and fashionable with the latest trends that is possible with a capsule wardrobe.

Capsule wardrobe is a term coined in 1970 by Susie Faux, owner of a London boutique. A capsule wardrobe contains a few essential and timeless items that can be easily complemented with seasonal pieces. Hence, the capsule wardrobe is the ultimate closet purge. However, in order for a capsule wardrobe to work well, you’ll need to invest some time and money in purchasing high-quality items that do not require to be replaced every so often. Rest assured that your investment will pay off in the long run because you will be spending less time and money replacing and updating your items; therefore, it’s also less likely to make impulse purchases. Because a capsule wardrobe is about downsizing your closet size, it should include the basic staples, statement pieces, and investment pieces which you can easily incorporate with any given trend or season.

StyleGenie, in partnership with Zalora Philippines, recently launched its limited edition Style Capsules that make dressing up easy as pie. If you want to achieve the model-off-duty look, then get your dibs on the Model Weekend box.  

While it’s true that models have a team of experts, who make them catwalk ready, it’s also equally easy to pull off their camera ready presence and look like you just stepped out of a photo shoot or fashion mag.

StyleGenie gives you a run-down of basic pieces which you can easily mix-and-match with the items in your Model Weekend Style Capsule. With these hacks, you might even be able to catch a model scout’s eyes and help you land a spot on a runway.

Motorcycle Jacket

You’ll definitely score high in fashion with this versatile piecethe motorcycle jacketwhich is a favorite staple in every fashion model’s wardrobe. You see fashion models doing errands, hopping from one airport to another, or partying in a motorcycle jacket worn over a statement or graphic tee, summer dress, and even gym clothes.   

If leather is too much for you, then grab yourself a fitted jacket or a mesh shirt worn over a cropped top. Another option is a colorful striped button-down shirt under a cable-knit sweater.

A Dress or a Tee?

When models are off duty, they usually wear clothes that make them feel as light as air. Because comfort is everything, get yourself tees made of soft drapey materials often in solid and neutral tones. Grab yourself also a graphic or statement tee or something with a sloppy design. Do a half-tucked job of your shirt into your jeans by grabbing the middle front piece before tucking in down. Achieve that I-just-threw-this-in look by wearing your graphic tee underneath a dress. You can also bring out your dainty and feminine side with a whole dress paired with your chosen comfortable shoes.

 

It’s in the Jeans

Legs become longer and leaner all because of skinny jeans. This comfortable go-to piece of fashion models can be easily dressed up and down with almost anything. Dress them down by tucking them into boots. Glam them up with heels. Pair them with a simple tank, fitted tee, or cropped top.

A pair of leggings works just as well as a pair of skinny jeans. To achieve that casual look, pair your leggings with an above-the-knee shirt, an A-line dress, or a pencil cut skirt.

Wide leg trousers and ankle-grazing pants also give that additional leanness in proportion and stance.

Cut-Off Denim Shorts

Show off those legs with a pair of cut-off denim shorts. They ooze with comfort and practicality as they can be worn with a denim-to-denim combination, an oversized blazer, sheer blouse, hoods, baseball shirt, etc. Dressing them up or down depends on your footwear.


You need not own an entire clothing rack and do a wardrobe overhaul whenever the season changes. All you need is this nifty thing we call as capsule wardrobe. So go ahead and experiment with all the possible fashion combinations with the Model Weekend Style Capsule.
