    Models are masters of the two Cs: comfort and cool. Between endless fittings, being sewn into garments, and painful heels often in a size too small, when runway regulars are not at work, they simply want to be comfortable. And clearly, looking stylish is a non-negotiable. These two qualities make MODs the ideal style icons for lazy girls everywhere, which is why we rounded up the best tips and inspiring outfits to craft your own effortless off-duty look. Click through to start channeling your inner Delevingne on the double.

    Tip 1: Put Your Name On It.

    The monogramming trend has been spotted on models galore (and will only keep going, thanks to the monogrammed jackets spotted on Rag & Bone’s F/W 14 show). Make like Sam Rollinson and add your moniker to a bomber jacket for a downtown look.

    Tip 2: Layer Like You Mean It.

    If Anja Rubik managed to get an impressive four layers into her spring ensemble, we can at least swing three. Sheer pieces like Rubik’s mesh top and tasseled vest are key for a slim silhouette.

    Tip 6: Dr. Martens Are Your Friend.

    The signature chunky shoes are an easy way to add a punk touch to your outfit. Opt for the oxford version like Tilda Lindstam if the boots are a bit extreme for your taste.

    Tip 7: When In Doubt: Go For An Edgy + Alluring Combo.

    If the tomboy looks aren’t your speed, opt for a flirty combination of leather and a miniskirt like Joan Smalls.
