The 4 Elements of a Perfect
The term off duty has become synonymous with the look models sport in between their castings and shows. Seemingly not putting in a ton of effort, but looking devastatingly cool nonetheless. And chic. Effortlessly chic. And aren’t those two simple words something we all strive to embody?
While nailing that je ne sais quoi may seem like an elusive recipe at times, the philosophy behind this style is in truth pretty basic: keep it simple!
The Striped Tee
Jane Birkin, Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot… they all recognized the casual elegance of a simple striped tee. Dress it down with jeans, or dress it up with a black mini skirt. The striped tee never goes out of style.
A Perfectly Worn-In Pair of Denim Shorts
A little California Dreamin’ for everyone. A vintage, worn-in pair of denim shorts (read, not too new, not too tight) worn the right way, are a California staple that always feel right and not just on the beach. A great pair of denim shorts is just as at home on a lunch date.
Lauren Hutton in American Gigolo, Meryl Streep in Kramer vs Kramer, Catherine Deneuve in Belle du Jour. Just a few examples (out of many) where the classic trench coat has made a small appearance with a big impact. This staple should be in every woman’s wardrobe and easily adds a feminine, understated elegance to any look.
