With designer BFFs and all that fashion knowledge, who better to gather fashion inspo from, if not models?

These models don’t just look good on runways, but also on the streets – when they’re shopping, grabbing a coffee, or running errands! Here’s how to look ever fashion-ready, according to these fashionistas.

1 So-ra Choi

Sora Choi was the winner of Korea’s Next Top Model, Cycle 3. After the show, she went on to book international shows and editorials with names like Marc Jacobs and Prabal Gurung.  Just as successful off duty, Sora is a trendsetter with edgy-pretty monochromatic styles.

Wearing one colour from head to toe can look super chic and fashion forward. Take a cue from Sora and wear a matching lace and/or feminine top with a white bottom. Pair that with white sneakers (like Adidas Originals) for a perfect balance of feminine and sporty!

2Margaret Zhang

This enterprising model is also a stylist, writer, photographer, creative director, and student at The University of Sydney’s Law School. Talk about world domination. The beauty’s style is eclectic with a masculine-feminine edge.

A good way to experiment with the masculine-feminine style, is to try a boxy silhouette. Follow Zhang’s lead and layer structured blazers or coats over softer silhouettes like a blouse.

Time to take a trip to Zara or Monki to search for a structured jacket.

3Liu Wen

Liu Wen probably looks familiar, because her face is just about everywhere right now. The first ever East Asian model to walk the runways of Victoria’s Secret is just another notch on this model’s belt, besides major campaigns with H&M and Estee Lauder.
The supermodel from China’s style can be described as boyish and comfy.

Boyfriend jeans are a great item to add to your closet for a quick way to earn fashion points while maintaining comfort levels! Pair it with funky sneakers or preppy loafers to complete the laidback look.

A great pair of shades can really up your OOTD game. Sport embellished ones like Liam for an off-duty model look.
Topshop, Forever 21, and MNG are great places to shop for trendy pairs.

This super famous supermodel has appeared in a music video with the queen herself, Beyonce. Suffice to say, her supermodel status is solid.
Dunn’s off duty style is gritty, sporty, and original, which just screams top model quality.

To copy Dunn’s signature look, roll out in your favourite sweat pants or sports sweater! To avoid looking like you’re running to the gym, throw on a faux leather jacket or some sexy heels.
