This off duty model look – photographed in Milan – is one of those that you’d have a hard time faulting. There’s the pop of deep red in the form of a sleeveless winter coat. The printed long-sleeved tee peeping out from underneath. And the black thigh high boots that add a definite edge.

Maybe it’s the round sunglasses, maybe it’s the orange crop top. Or maybe it’s simple the ease with which she stands, thumb hooked into jeans. But this off duty model look definitely has the cool-factor nailed. The shot was taken in New York during fashion week.

American beauty Ondria Hardin may have been wearing dramatic blue eyeshadow after a show, but she managed to pair her glammed-up beauty look with off-duty cool. Denim shorts, a cropped top and sporty cap looked at home on her slender physique as she walked post-show in New York.
American beauty Binx Walton defies the cliche image of “prettiness” but instead has something much more powerful: a cool ‘it’ factor. Rocking an off duty model look of crop top, slouchy print pants, a leather backpack and wedge sneakers, she was impossible to miss between shows in New York.
It’s all pretty standard from the baggy black t-shirt to the relaxed cut cropped black pants. But then there’s this hint of toughness, fetish and femininity all at once: sheer, polka dot stockings showing at the ankles, a fetish-inspired collar around the neck. Leave it to an off duty model to rock a look like this.
