The new Victoria’s Secret Angel Josephine Skriver trades in her sexy lingerie for comfortable tomboy chic on her off-duty days.
The Danish model Josephine Skriver has been a mainstay on the runways for the past few years, with shows like Alexander McQueen, Chanel, and Givenchy under her belt. The newly minted Victoria Secrets’ model has gained a following for her work as an LBGTQ activist and being open about what it is like to grow up with her gay parents.
But what really caught our eye is her tomboy take on her off-duty outfits and how she makes everything look so effortless and yet sporty and chic at the same time. Shriver pulls off her tomboy style by wearing designer clothing with casual appeal, pairing them with offbeat clothing and accessories to make it her own.
Skriver has recently made the fashion world sit up with her own spins on the highly coveted and sold out Vetements Titanic hoodie, first by swapping the pants with knee high boots for the punk rock style look and then upping her street cred by throwing on an oversized denim jacket over the hoodie. You don’t want to look like a bad 90s hangover in that denim jacket and oversized hoodie combo, so consider this a masterclass in how to do casualwear. Match a well-cut, artfully distressed jacket with a fun statement sweater and you’ve got a look that’s as fashion-forward as it is comfortable to jive with the star-crossed movie couple.
Ultimately the real secret to selling her tomboy style is her confidence that she rocks it with all her looks. That’s an absolute favourite in our books because there’s nothing sexier than confidence. Even when she’s keeping it simple in skinny jeans and bomber jacket over a cropped tee, Skriver still manages to make things just a little sultrier than normal by channeling her inner sexpot. Looking through her popular Instagram account, she is just as comfortable in sexy lingerie and lacy barely-seen dresses as she is rocking her tomboy fashion pieces of sweatshirts, basketball jerseys, cropped t-shirts and jeans.
Josephine Skriver has indeed mastered the art of pairing sexy with the swag and we can’t wait to see what she can come up with next.
