Obviously, not every woman can wear what a model can wear, on or off the runway. But the girls who deliver the style of designers while on the job can definitely inspire us while wearing their own combinations and creations. Even if these entire looks are a bit over-the-top for your everyday life, take the high points to influence your own purchases and pairings.
Tanya Dziahileva at 3.1 Phillip Lim
Looks to take with you: Metallics. Try this trend in small doses in an accessory if you can’t stomach making it the focal point of your outfit. Layering. Working two (or more) tops together is a look that can flatter a woman of any size, not just a pin-thin model. The cropped jacket. As Spring heats up, you can wear the cropped jacket strictly to accent your ensemble since you don’t need it for the warmth.
Lindsay Ellingson at Badgley Mischka
Looks to take with you: The Classics. A simple white western shirt with a broken-in pair of jeans can be endlessly chic on anyone. How to make it work like this model? Her tight tuck on the shirt and her pristine dark manicure keep the look neat, prim, and full of attitude. It’s in the details.
Agyness Deyn and Chanel Iman at Michael Kors
Looks to take with you: Well, definitely not the furry muppet-looking sweater that Deyn is rocking. Something better? Hats. Whether it’s a straw Panama, a fedora, or one of the floppy numbers that have been circulating, protecting your skin (and your highlights) with headgear is cool. What else can you take from these wild women? Their smiles. You can wear these bright colors, vintage pieces, and crazy patterns, too, if you wear them with a confident grin.
