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.

A topknot pairs perfectly with everything from denim on denim to a breezy sundress. Plus, you’ll love this easy, out-of-your-face ‘updo when juggling two or more dogs.

Lightweight layering makes your warm weather outfits feel effortless, and it’s as simple as throwing a worn-in vest over a relaxed t-shirt.

No need to change post work, a menswear-inspired office outfit works for walks too.
