There is something so smooth and chic about a model's off-the-runway style. It's simple, it's put together, it's everything we all strive for every morning, and somehow they nail it without any indication of effort. Sure, you might say that they are simply dress to let their looks take center stage (and who wouldn't with that flawless skin?), but there's something else at play here. Models are learned from the style savvy designers they work with. Ever noticed that no matter what is put down the runway, over the top or under the radar, everything a designer wears in their day-to-day life is simple, casual and flattering? That's because the best fashion is the fashion that fits you, enhances your natural figure and can be worn season after season.
This week, take a cue from model Chrissy Teigen who keeps it simply elegant in a white, oversized and asymmetrical boyfriend blazer.
Ape Chrissy's all white and season appropriate style with this relatively plain white dress. Don't worry about it's simplicity - that's the key aspect of the look. This dress from Parisian boutique Cancan does just what it is supposed to do: plays up your natural beauty in a silhouette and color that lets your face steal the show.

If you're adoring Chrissy's asymmetrical hemline, ape the look with an oversized blazer cut to the same dimesnions. If you want to immerse yourself in her style, opt for a size or two larger than what you normally wear. This will allow the hemline to drop and create a mini-dress affect.

Finding the perfect silhouette is key to acing the simplicity look. Oversized works best when you cinch the style in a bit at your thinnest point, usually the waist (not to be mistaken for the hip!). Here, Chrissy's style cinches in a bit at this exact spot and this kimono will naturally do the same. Pull it a bit tighter to completely close the style and opt for a size larger than usual to create a dress out of the blazer.
