Street Style Evolved
I think many of us have noticed a slight change in Freja's choice of street clothes lately. She's definitely going along with de rigeur model staples of black, leather, and skinny pants. And she also has an "it" bag in her studded, black Balenciaga. However, Freja keeps it simple and a little bit more masculine as she eschews the feminine blouses and killer 6-inch heels for neutral colored t-shirts and flat shoes. This is one of the things I admire about her. She seems to dress the way she wants to and not how she thinks a model should dress. There are no pretensions, and while her style has evolved, it still conveys who she is. It's this relaxed, insouciant vibe that is so captivating it leaves us wanting more. It's a pity she doesn't seem to like hamming it up for the cameras off duty, or else we could get more of these types of pictures.
For old time's sake, here is a look at the items that used to comprise Freja's old street style:
Trusty black and white Keffiyeh scarf? Check!
Black leather jacket? Check!
Ksubi Jeans? Check!
Brown Burberry bag? Check!
White Kawasakis or black Puma shoes? Check!
And the final, perfected look from head to toe.
