Off duty quirky: on the street

Slick, wet look hair, a 1990s inspired choker, and a chilled pair of sneakers: already this outfit is sounding like pure off-duty model chic. Add to that the bag and sweater – both festooned with crazy cartoon eyes – and it’s a cool and quirky look indeed.

Preppy, sporty, sexy, cool: in Paris

Leave it to an off duty model to nail a mix of preppy, sporty, sexy and cool with such effortlessness. A tartan skirt baring upper thigh is the realm of the young, but it carries a certain nonchalance when pitted against sneakers and sporty knee-high socks. A slick ponytail keeps it simple and chic.

Slipping in a hint of silver

A staple of the ’90s revival, the slip dress is one of those utterly effortless ways to look chic on the street. Worn the off duty model way, it’s best served with a hint of rock-chic: like some shiny silver ankle boots.

A pair of masculine flats kept the whole…

Gingham checks made effortless: in Lisbon

Her ballerina-like topknot and glossy red lips may have been the beautiful remains of a ModaLisboa show, but model off duty Alexandra Nefedova happened to also rock the perfectly on the street. A low-buttoned gingham shirt tucked nonchalantly into a pair of skinny jeans was an easy accompaniment to gold chandelier earrings and bold makeup.
