Style to Steal: Alana Zimmer

Alana Zimmer has walked for basically everyone. From Alexander McQueen and Louis Vuitton to Banana Republic and Lanvin for H&M. And not only does she rock amazing outfits on the runway, but she shows great personal style off the runway. Here is your way to steal her great style. 

You can't really tell what she is wearing underneath that great double-breasted coat, so I've put this outfit with a white tunic top. If you're going to wear skinny leather pants, or what I've featured here as an inexpensive alternative - the American Apparel nylon tricot legging - I beg of you, wear something on top that covers your butt. It just looks more appropriate.  

For the coat, look for a double-breasted one with menswear tailoring. Like I said, wear a long white tunic top, and a printed scarf like this fun one from Topshop. Wear short flat boots like these from Sam Edelman, black leather gloves, and carry a black quilted bag with a long gold chain to imitate Zimmer's style.
