I’ve loved fashion forever, and let’s be real I’ve always thought about the possibility of being a model (any agencies out there, holla at ya girl!). But for those of us who aren’t supermodels, don’t worry because we can still dress like one!
During the summer of 2015 I got the opportunity to intern at the world-renowned clothing brand, Tommy Hilfiger, in New York. I had the greatest experience and one of my favorite parts of it all was (of course) the clothes! *insert heart eye emoji* And I couldn’t leave New York without picking up some fashion tips from the man himself.
Even when running from show to show during fashion month, models still manage to look impossibly stylish at all times. Especially Tommy Hilfiger models! They epitomize the American-girl next door feel and I’ve got their secrets.
“Classic American Cool” and “Modern Ivy-League Prep” are the mottos to live by in Hilfiger’s world.
Perfectly Placed Stripes
Stripes don’t always have to make you look like you just stepped off of a yacht in the South of France (although that wouldn’t be such a bad thing!). Choose a dress with a few perfectly placed stripes and pair them with some white sneakers for a cool girl’s take on this classic trend!
When you want to step the “cool factor” up a notch, color coordinate your outfit and accessories. Add a chunky heel with a skinny ankle strap and a colorful bomber to match your blue dress and you’ll look like you just stepped off the runway too!
If a dress isn’t floating your boat that day, take cues from supermodel Behati Prinsloo. Distressed denim with a silky bomber jacket and chunky heels give you the relaxed vibe you’re looking for.
Tommy Hilfiger has been a staple in the fashion world for decades and remains the symbol for the classic American cool look. Who wouldn’t want to emulate that?!
I hope this list helped give you the confidence to work it like a Tommy Hilfiger model and leave a comment below if you have any other tips to share!
