Off duty style tips

I have three wardrobes - one for work, one for play and one for off duty.

Work is the slightly smarter office look infused with my sense of style that's classic and feminine. Play is what I'd wear heading out to lunch or dinner with friends, on a date night or a night on the town and is anything from a dress to pants and a top or a skirt.

My final wardrobe is off duty, casual and comfy - and no we're not talking active wear.

If you're like me, you put in a bit of effort when it comes to a workday look. I pick my outfit the night before, do my hair and makeup all before heading to the office. I feel good when I think I look good and that is when i am most productive. 

I look forward to the weekend when I can dress down a little in a pair of jeans, a t-shirt or jumper. Chuck on a collared shirt (white is always a winner) if you're after something a bit more structured. A jacket will also take your look to another level. Do what Kendall Jenner does and add a simple belt for an extra layer of style - and it's that simple.

It doesn't have to be all about pants on weekends. Sneakers are super cool right now and can be worn with a skirt and t-shirt or oversized jumper. 

Add a hat to accessorise, sunglasses are a model's off duty staple as is an oversized bag.

When it comes to makeup, keep it super simple - foundation, bronzer, mascara and a bit of lipstick. Put your hair in a top knot, add sea salt for some beachy waves or stick it all in an effortless pony tail.

Generally it's all about the neutral palette and keeping it simple but adding layers and accessories. 

Here are my off duty essentials.

  1. Flat shoes 
  2. Jeans 
  3. Black or white t-shirt
  4. Jacket - leather, bomber, blazer
  5. Handbag
  6. Sunglasses

Models and celebs do off duty best so here are some of the coolest street style looks.
