We've all seen her in bedazzled barely there fantasy bras and superbly put together model off-duty ensembles consisting of jeans and a white T-shirt. But, Elsa Hosk's less-spoken about street-style staple and go-to everyday ensemble are her various renditions of a slouchy suit.

The particular style, over-sized in soft silhouettes, with dropped shoulders and swathing fabric is an undeniably Scandinavian take on suiting. Paired with relaxed garments, such as a white T-shirt or a tank top, and sporty accessories like baseball caps and sneakers, the Nordic's sartorial flair steps away from traditional tailoring.

And Hosk has honed her skills in styling soft suiting. Below, we've gathered 15 times when her ineffable ensembles has inspired us as well as the best slouchy suits to buy now:

15 times Elsa Hosk's slouchy suits and styling chops have inspired us:

1

A lesson in layering, this charcoal grey suit worn with a beige coat is the perfect combination for transitional dressing – made even better with an orange pop of colour in the cap and shoes.

2

Havre Studio is a fast favourite of Hosk. The Danish brand is upcycling vintage suits, here an old blazer has been transformed into a skirt and cropped blazer combo.

3

Tone-in-tone creamy colours makes suiting hot-weather appropriate. Here, Hosk transforms the wide-shouldered cut of her blazer into a casual ensemble with denim and a T-shirt.

4

Tailoring is a very traditional take on dressing, but there's no need to steer clear of innovative detailing. Here, a lace-up back lets Hosk decide on the fit of the blazer.

5

Sorbet shades are springtime personified, and what better way to celebrate the sun than with buttery yellows? Pull on your crew socks and comfy sneakers for a Saturday strolling through the streets – just like Elsa.

6

There are many perks in a slouchier silhouette and over-sized fit. For one, a blazer that reaches long enough down the thigh can stand in for the mini dresses in our wardrobes.

7

A power suit in dual aspects, both colour and fit. This lime green double-breasted suit is the perfect example on how to combine tailoring with dopamine dressing.

8

Soft tailoring isn't exclusive to a blazer, here the looser fit on the recently trending waistcoat paired with wide-slung trousers ticks all of our boxes for slouchy suiting.

9

As proven here by Hosk, just because a suit is meant to be worn as a set doesn't mean you have to. Pair your pin-stripes with solids and a chunky silver chain.

10

We never thought that we'd pack a suit for our summer vacation, but seeing Elsa Hosk sport this linen version with her black basic bikini has us squeezing one into our suitcase for sure.

11

We swooned seeing Elsa Hosk pair her oversized-beige blazer with a statement belt and knit trousers. Talk about giving your loungewear an upgrade.

12

Leaning into her Scandi roots, Elsa Hosk relies on layering when styling her suits. Here, a knit cardigan, ribbed crop top and light-washed denim makes a case for soft suiting year round.

13

Loungerwear doesn't necessarily have to be elevated, instead a tracksuit can take a blazer from dressy to casual. According to Elsa herself, this was her pregnancy uniform.

14

A strong sartorial statement, the combination of black and white is an undefeated duo. Here, the black suit and white top makes for a truly elevated ensemble.

15

Feeling bare when donning a mini? An oversized blazer can help combat the feeling of nakedness (although, as Elsa's proven there's nothing wrong in showing a little bit of skin). Here, the model pairs a black slip with lace details with a grey slouchy jacket.
