The ‘off duty supermodel’ aesthetic has long been one many have tried to emulate, but right now, celebrities are embracing the ‘comfortable is key’ approach to dressing with gusto.
Think pants made to go from couch to club, the all-weather jacket once only reserved for hiking trips, or boots that are practical and pretty.
Right now, celebs are rapidly turning traditionally un-cool pieces into wardrobe must-haves, and we can’t get enough.
1. The Low-Rise Cargo Pants
Y2K dressing is back in a big way, and with it, comes the return of the low-rise pant.
Thankfully, the 2022 version oozes a much more relaxed vibe, with a wider, slouchier fit.
The updated proportions are more accessible than their skin-tight noughties sisters, thanks to a much lower inseam and inclusive fit.
Up the comfort factor by pairing with a slouchy knit, or channel Hailey Bieber with a sporty crop, chunky sneakers, and pair of sleek sunglasses.
2. The Practical (But Stylish) Boot
Boots are a winter wardrobe must-have and right now it’s all about chunky-style Chelsea boots that have a little bit of edge, with the likes of Gigi Hadid, Rihanna and Selena Gomez all counting them among their favourite footwear.
Sophisticated and polished, yet still cool and casual, this style of boot is adaptable for any season.
Crafted in smooth, full-grain leather in black or limestone, ECCO’s Modtray Chelsea Boot is an edgy update on a classic style, with chunky heels made for walking and rubber outsoles made from innovative TRAYTECH™ shoe form, which provides stability and hardwearing grip for days when the weather is unpredictable.
Minimalist yet modern, they’re the streetwear shoe made to get your noticed.
3. The ‘Gorpcore’ Jacket
Hear us out: ‘Gorpcore’ is the trend of the moment. Named after a slang term for trail mix—“good ol’ raisins and peanuts”—it’s about wearing ultra-functional clothing made for the outdoors as part of your regular, everyday life.
Combine the fashionable with the functional, like Bella Hadid, who recently rocked a ski jacket and hiking boots for a trip to the supermarket.
4. The Winter Crop
Emily Ratajkowski is one stylish star showing us that the crop top has a place in the colder months, too. The perfect pairing to low-rise and loose-fitting pants, stay warm with a boyfriend-style tuxedo jacket or chunky cardigan on top.
Versatile layering pieces, the winter crop can be dressed down for a chilly morning coffee or styled with heels and a matching midi-skirt for a more sophisticated look.
5. The Undone Vest
Look your best in a vest, á la Kendal Jenner.
Go one step further than the ‘shest’ (vests worn as shirts) trend and leave a few buttons undone or go for styles that have a minimalist button design.
Mix and match your vest to suit your look—pair with chinos or a plaid skirt for an academia-inspired outfit, or go minimalist with low-rise, relaxed-fit denim.
