Kaia Gerber's Off-Duty Outfit Formula Is So Easy to Copy

Kaia Gerber has been on our radar quite a lot lately, (and no, it’s not because she has been appearing on the runway in stunning bespoke looks at Haute Couture Fashion Week). In fact, it is the model’s off-duty wardrobe that has really captured our attention.

Much like her supermodel mother, Gerber has mastered the art of model-off-duty dressing, as the 18-year-old has managed to cultivate quite the impressive capsule wardrobe for herself. Evidently of the mindset that once you find your aesthetic, you should stick to it, Kaia’s casual looks are not only consistent but also refreshingly simple.

Kaia relies heavily on a few key wardrobe pieces and wears each over and over again. (We love a model who doesn’t mind outfit repeating.) High in her wardrobe rotation is a mix of Converse sneakers, straight-leg jeans, structured blazers and leather outwear. In the colder months, Kaia also chooses to add a series of neutral-toned beanies and bucket hats to her look.

With a base wardrobe of reliable staples that can easily be mixed and matched, we imagine Kaia has no trouble figuring out what to wear in the morning, which is likely very helpful for all those 5 a.m. modelling call times.
