You don't actually have to be a model to pull off this look!

There's actually no concrete or specific formula for a model-off-duty outfit, but once you see it, you can simply tell that it is the "look." Often, it comes with a plain white tee, a pair of denim jeans, sneakers or slides, sunglasses, and a statement tote. The go-to equation can be likened to lazy dressing, but still somewhat elevated. The question is, how exactly can someone (who's probably not a model) achieve the famous "model off-duty look"? Below, we show you how you can nail it down to a T!

1. Statement Sunnies

Had a long night? Feeling too tired or lazy to put makeup on? Don't fret! Happens to celebrities all the time, which is why they always keep a pair of statement sunnies in their purse to save the day.

2. Relaxed Top

A relaxed top doesn't just mean plain T-shirts. Remember that the key to the model off-duty look is to look effortlessly put together. You can even reach for a button-down shirt, a simple black turtleneck, an oversized hoodie, or a logo tee to achieve the same laidback look with a nonchalant aesthetic.

3. Cool Bag

A designer arm candy instantly injects a luxe feel into the overall look! That said, however, it doesn't literally have to cost you hundreds of thousands for your OOTD to look like one. A cool bag that brings character to your look will also do the trick.

4. Laidback Bottoms

FYI, jeans aren't your only options. You can go the sporty route and opt for trackpants; or, if you prefer a look that's a little more polished, consider a pair of black trousers.

5. Comfy Shoes

Sneakers and sandals are your best bets! But while the whole point of the model-off-duty look is to appear relaxed and laidback, if you feel like your plain T-shirt and jeans combo is in need of a little more oomph, like Kathryn Bernardo, feel free to slip into a pair of heels to elevate your look.
