The Off-Duty Model Look: Mastering Elevated Athleisure with Jessica Armstrong of Closet Intuition

In the world of fashion, trends come and go, but there's one style that is standing the test of time – the off-duty model look. Effortlessly chic and comfortable, this style seamlessly blends athleisure with elevated elements, creating a balanced and sophisticated ensemble that's perfect for any occasion. Today, we delve into the realm of elevated athleisure and learn from the expertise of Jessica Armstrong, one of California's finest fashion stylists, and the creative force behind ClosetIntuition, a go-to hub for exceptional style.


The off-duty model look is all about being comfortable while also being put together and showcasing some personality. The key is pairing athletic and leisurewear pieces with high-end or polished items, resulting in a look that's both relaxed and refined. A soft onesie paired with an oversized blazer, or a luxe textured sweatshirt worn with a flowing skirt are two solid options.  Start the day in a fashion sneaker and then change into a heel while staying in the same outfit and seamlessly transitioning from day to night. The key is to strike the perfect balance between sporty and chic.

At the forefront of mastering the off-duty model look is Jessica Armstrong, a renowned fashion stylist based in California. With an innate sense of style and an eye for unique combinations, Jessica has established herself as a trendsetter in the world of fashion. Her boutique, ClosetIntuition,houses some great options for achieving the off-duty model look such as her Oversized Blazer, Casual Onsie, Y2K Cargo Pants & Mega 1 sneaker.



The magic of the off-duty model look lies in the unexpected pairings. Establish an athleisure base of cargos, joggers, onesies & crop tops & mix them with elevated and tailored pieces. ClosetIntuition offers some beautiful elevated pieces such as The Manhattan Shoe & Bunny hat.


Jessica suggests experimenting with textures and fabrics to add depth and interest to your look. Combine a satin slip dress, such as our Champagne Dress with a graphic sweatshirt, or pair our statement Mega Sock sneaker with a flowy chiffon skirt & oversized blouse. Mixing textures not only adds visual intrigue but also highlights the contrast between casual and refined elements.



Accessories are the finishing touch that can take your look to the next level. Opt for statement pieces like chunky jewelry, a designer handbag, or a sleek belt to add a touch of glamour. Remember, it's all about balance – a few carefully chosen accessories can make a powerful impact.

Embrace these styling secrets and seek inspiration from experts like Jessica to effortlessly channel your inner off-duty model with confidence!
