What We Can Learn From The New Model-Off-Duty Look

Let's take a trip back to 2007, shall we? When Scott Schumann hadn't yet met Garance Dore, and Jak & Jil was all about the YSL Tribute. Remember the revelation that was Model-Off-Duty style? With a slouchy white T-shirt, skinny jeans, suede moccasins, a Chanel crossbody, and a shrunken leather jacket (or an oversized blazer), anyone could achieve that effortlessly done look that simultaneously said "I get it" and "I don't care."
Half a decade later, Model-Off-Duty style has definitely evolved (as have Scott, Garance, Tommy, and the rest of the street-style scene), but we're just as enthralled with models' ability to still fuse those two ends of the glamor spectrum. (And, when your job involves looking good while working 14-hour days, and subsisting on a closet diet of fancy freebies and affordable buys, you'd look like that, too.) Check out the five new ways to do Model-Off-Duty — no platform pump, necessary.
