We willingly admit that we have a considerable style crush on Belgian model Hanne Gaby Odiele. Both recently engaged and celebrating ten years on the catwalk this season, her charmingly quirky, oddball sensibility has had us Hanne-hooked for years. Notorious for marching to the beat of her own drum, the supermodel has an innate sense for putting together unexpectedly cool outfits that come off totally effortless and invariably chic—a well-documented look by street-style photographers and the fashion crowd alike. While the secret to Odiele’s style might be the product of her lighthearted personality and decade-long modeling career, we’re finding ourselves inspired by her experimentation with cool proportions, bold colors and kooky pattern play. Here, a few of our favorite looks from the infamous style star, plus selects for emulating her trademark look this fall.
