A minimalist base, a bit of grunge, a touch of vintage and something leather — what models wear off the runway is often totally different from what they wear on the runway. Usually dressed in something black or oversized, off-duty model style gives off that effortless, slouchy-chic je nais sais quoi. We compiled a list of statement pieces that will have you looking like you just walked Marc Jacobs — and not care that you did.
Check out our favorite versions of the best model street style essentials of the season, shot by Guerre.
The Moto Jacket
Durable, easy to throw on and a classic — the moto jacket is the fastest way to put some badass chic into your outfit.
The Knit Pullover
Comfy, warm, and it goes with anything — a quality solid-colored knit is understated yet sophisticated.
Try: Free People
The ultimate closet staple, black skinny jeans will instantly add polish to your outfit with minimal effort.
