>We’re all well aware that everyone’s work dress code is unique. We have some friends who never walk out of the house in anything but a corporate-appropriate blazer; others don’t really care what they toss on because eventually it will be covered in a pair of scrubs. But models—and certainly Victoria’s Secret models—don’t really have any HR-authorized rules for what to wear Monday through Friday. It’s no surprise, then, that when it comes to work hours, the sartorial results run the gamut. This was completely made evident when we spotted the following ladies attending a fitting for the upcoming VS Fashion Show.
>Snapped on the street of New York, the outfits below are a compilation of our favorite work (or play—depends on who you ask) looks from Adriana Lima, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, and more. For them, workwear means stunning over-the-knee booties, A-okay crop tops, and coats that look as warm and fuzzy as they do statement-making.
>Of course, we can’t say we’ll all be taking a cue from these ladies when it comes to our own interpretation of officewear (unless you will—then more power to you). But that’s not to say we can’t at least be inspired by their bold use of colors, rich texture mixing, and next-level footwear.
>Scroll down for our favorite “work” outfits from Victoria’s Secret models.
We absolutely love that the color of Elsa Hosk’s fringe-detailed buffalo-check jacket was mimicked in her patterned booties.
On Jasmine Tookes: Majorelle Daisy Crop Top ($120).
Ms. Fantasy Bra 2016 herself, Jasmine Tookes, showed us an outfit that relies heavily on our two favorite colors, namely black and gray. The game-changing style move: that super-fuzzy topper paired with a simple fitted cropped tee–and–skinny jeans base.
Neither Alessandra Ambrosio’s velvet duster coat nor her suede lace-up boots nor her micro-mini sweaterdress is for the faint of heart. But there’s no denying that this trifecta stunned.
Adriana Lima proved that two jackets are even better than one in a casual knee-length plaid style and a more glamorous furry topper slung over her arm.
On Lily Aldridge: Isabel Marant Etoile Dinky Verbier Sweater ($405), Frame Le Skinny De Jeanne Released Hem Stagger ($239), Paige 'Jenine' Studded Leather Belt ($145), Shauns Hoy Sunglasses ($295), Isabel Marant booties.
Sometimes a great striped knit is all you need to make an outfit pop. Ask Lily Aldridge.
