We love a styling tutorial when it comes to putting together trendy and cute looks, but are particularly interested when the lesson comes from one of our very own SI Swimsuit models.

Hunter McGrady delivered with her Feb. 22 Instagram post, in which the 30-year-old model and mom shared five different ways to style a sweater vest and pair of trousers. The five-time SI Swimsuit star even shared the exact base items she was wearing so you can recreate the look.

McGrady styled the two pieces into the following outfits:

  1. Vest and trousers with a sweater thrown over her shoulders, along with sneakers, glasses and a necklace.
  2. Vest and belted trousers with a long, black jacket and pointed-toe heels for an elevated look.
  3. Vest and trousers with a white button-up underneath, pointed-toe heels and pink-rimmed glasses for a studious vibe.
  4. Vest and trousers with a white T-shirt underneath, sunglasses and white sneakers for a casual aesthestic. 
  5. Vest and trousers with a jean jacket thrown over top, a crossbody bag, sunglasses and white sneakers for another laid-back option.

Tons of McGrady’s 693,000 followers on the platform chimed in to the comments section with praise for her various ensembles.

“Yessss these fits 🔥🔥🔥🔥,” 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie Lauren Chan applauded.

“Classy, cool, gorgeous❤️,” someone else added.

“Loooove 😍 all of the looks are perfect,” another fan gushed.
