Catwalk? More like dogwalk if you ask Chrissy Teigen, who can be seen regularly outfitted in some of the coolest off-duty looks while walking her adorable pup Pippa. Even better: not a single outfit involves sweatpants or flip-flops! Simply put: we could all (yes, even the cat lovers out there) learn a style lesson from the model. Here, we break down Teigen’s wardrobe rules to follow when walking the dog.

Of-the-moment pieces, like embellished sandals, a backpack, and a baseball hat, can quickly revive your summer basics. Note: these items shouldn’t get in the way of chasing around your pooch.

8. Come fall, swap your sandals for knee-high boots.
When the leaves start turning, it’s time to switch gears and opt for seasonally-appropriate footwear. Pair a long floral dress with tall boots for a stylish nod to the ‘70s.
On Teigen: 3.1 Phillip Lim boots.
