When it comes to street style, that beautiful and elusive creature, the model out in the wild (also known as the off-duty model) is in a class of her own. She’s usually far more understated than the Editor or the Blogger, and yet her style is well worth paying attention to.

From the most recent spring 2015 season of New York fashion week, here are 15 of the most stylish off-duty model outfits.

1. Gorgeous Dutch model Daphne Groeneveld gets minimalist chic down to a midriff baring art with this black and white ensemble.

4. Every single bit of this black and yellow situation is expertly done: the pop of colour, the voluminous silhouette, and the punchy accessories.

5. A summery printed jumpsuit, sneakers, and a statement Chanel bag. Caroline Brasch Nielsen pulls off something that’s smart, sporty, and summery all at once.

6. Counterbalancing a pair of wide-leg pants with a cropped shirt is one way to make them work, as demonstrated by Karlie Kloss.

8. Channeling one’s inner cowgirl is bound to result in good things. Just take this look of denim shirt, leather shorts, and a statement Western-style belt.

9. No-one can quite do relaxed, masculine-inspired femininity like Saskia de Brauw. It’s no wonder she’s always booked for the Chanel runway: she’s basically Coco incarnate.

10. An unusually-cut flowing skirt is easily matched by simple boots and a sweater, making for off-duty ease.

15. Ola Rudnicka’s glowing platinum hair is her best accessory. But the fringed sueded jacket certainly helps, too.
