Bolajo Fawehinmi, Nigerian Model and director of the fast-rising modeling agency Few models, has been killing it in the style stakes recently.
The “model off-duty” thing (which is basically what a model wears outside the catwalk) that super models such as Joan Smalls and Kendall Jenner do on a regular basis is what some designers are inspired by. Case in point: very recently, American designer Tommy Hilfiger tapped 21 year old super model Gigi Hadid to co-design a line of apparel inspired by her off-duty looks.
For Bolajo, her secret (save for her makeup-free face and nothing hair) is effortless ease and comfort. “I like a nice pair of jeans and a cool T-shirt. A comfortable pair of heels or adidas sneakers are my go-to shoes”, she said. For extra coolness, she adds a pair of dapmod shades.
Could a designer collaboration be in her future? Below are pictures of the 10 times she schooled us on how to dress like a model off-duty.
