Models actually wear the most simple and straightforward pieces. It’s the body that makes everything look amazing on them, but we aren’t going to dwell on that. Even the most curvy girls can dress like models. The trick is to own it. From leather jackets to tailored blazers and comfortable shoes, here are five pieces that models wear to achieve a cool and casual look.
1. A black leather jacket
A leather jacket lends the perfect amount of cool to any basic outfit. Pair it with light wash jeans and a white T-shirt. Stand out by adding delicate gold accessories to the look.

2. The ankle bootie
The height helps elongate the legs, while the chunky heel keeps the look very comfortable. I love a nice pair of ankle booties, they are flattering on any look, whether it’s with a pair of skinny jeans, a short skirt or a long and flowy dress. They are versatile and worth investing in.

3. The perfect skinny jean
We always try to look for a bargain when shopping for jeans but if you live in them the way I do, spend a little more and get something high quality. Take your time looking around and try on as many as you can. The perfect skinny jean should not be too tight or too lose and should ideally sit at mid waist. Go for a thicker material, because the so called “jeggings” tend to look cheap.

4. The chain bag
The current bag obsession. A smaller bag, with a long chain to wear as a cross body. The current fave at the moment is this gorgeous Stella McCartney Black Mini Fellabella Shoulder Bag. This particular one is made with super soft faux leather and a subtle shimmer, which makes it an effortlessly versatile choice for day-to-night dressing and a must-have wardrobe addition. The miniature style is the way to go these days. It works with both smart and casual look.

5. A graphic Tee you identify with
A T-shirt that fits well, looks good and works with anything is the goal when shopping for this graphic tee. Tuck it into jeans or wear it underneath a dress. Your graphic tee should be as versatile as it is cool.
