Alessandra Ambrosio just proved that it's possible to wear an oversized graphic t-shirt in public without looking like you're in pajamas. The model has been in the spotlight lately for sitting out the 2018 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show after a 17-year run, and she's apparently traded her wings for leather and ripped jeans. Allow her perfectly edgy look to show you how to wear a graphic tee in an elevated way.
The 37-year-old walked around Los Angeles on Tues. wearing a vintage-inspired concert t-shirt decorated with the 1982 album cover of Michael Jackson's "Thriller." The Brazilian model tucked her oversized shirt into the front of a pair of high-waisted, straight-leg jeans with distressed patches on the knees and draped a black leather moto jacket over her shoulders. An edgy pair of basic black leather booties completed the rocker look.
Ambrosio's effortlessly cool ensemble is clearly the best way to take your oversized concert t-shirt from sloppy sleepwear to a street-ready look. Simply throw on an edgy biker jacket, your best pair of ripped jeans, the leather boots you probably already wear constantly, and call the retro combo a look. The mom of two accessorized her outfit with a basic Louis Vuitton handbag and aviator sunglasses.
It's no secret that the runway veteran loves her leather jackets. She even sported one in an Instagram photo with her kids Anja and Noah at Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in Culver City ahead of Halloween. Her off-duty look often includes graphic t-shirts and tennis shoes, too. She wore the same exact pants with another graphic t-shirt and white sneakers in Paris this past Sept., and a Ratt concert t-shirt with skinny jeans and Golden Goose's Superstar Sneakers over the summer.
The model's '80s-inspired street style is quite a contrast from the glitzy gowns and feminine lingerie she frequently sports on the runway. And lucky for you, it's an easy look to copy. The key is to pair your glam metal tees with other edgy pieces such as distressed jeans and an elevated leather jacket like Ambrosio's. Tucking the oversized tee into your denim and pairing a tailored jacket over it will help give its boxy silhouette more shape, too. Throw on your best leather booties or a chunky white sneaker for a more casual look, and there you have it: Alessandra Ambrosio's edgy off-duty style.
