How to Dress Like An “It Girl”

If there’s two things “it girls” know, it’s comfort and cool. No matter what, they always seem to look so chic and put together, even if they’re rocking sweats and sneakers. But how? Scroll on.

One of the fast rules of fashion is pairing tighter bottoms with looser tops, and vice-versa. To get the off-duty model look, try pairing a baggy sweatshirt or t-shirt with biker shorts, or a tight tank top with some loose cargo pants.

Keep It Basic

Whether it’s the shoes, a skirt, or accessories, it girls always have some sort of statement piece. The key to styling the piece though, is always good basics. Some it girl favorites seem to be Brandy Melville, Urban Outfitters, and Aritzia.

Never Get Too Girly

Even in a skirt and heels, keep your cool. Add a graphic sweatshirt, edgy accessories, menswear, or a leather jacket to keep your look model-esque. You can also dress down a skirt or dress with cool sneakers (think basic white Nike Jesters or neon Adidas).


That being said, lots of model off-duty looks are more athleisure-based. Try styling joggers to a basic white tank or graphic tee, and add lots of jewelry. Pair with cool sneakers and neon sunnies and you’re good to go!

Keep Your Hair Minimal

Remember, the main point of the look is the outfit. It girl favorites are a slicked-back ponytail, a low bun, or a sleek, straight lob. Because my hair is on the frizzy side, I usually opt for the low bun or a textured lob.

Always Accessorize

You’ll never see an it girl out and about without some bling. No matter if you’re rocking sweats or a dress, add some cool jewelry like chains or chunky hoops to complete the look. Don’t forget some cool sunglasses!
