Supermodels Kelsey Merritt and Gigi Hadid swear by the button-up vest and tailored pants matching set for a chic and comfortable look. The SI Swimsuit alumnas donned matching lightweight cream sets a couple weeks (and several countries) apart.

Hadid, a mom of one, who shares her daughter with ex-boyfriend Zayn Malik, was spotted at the Max Mara fashion show during Milan Fashion Week on Sept. 21. She fastened only the top two buttons of her V-neck vest top to reveal her toned abs and let the matching tailored pants hang low on her waist. She accessorized with a dainty gold chain necklace, baby yellow micro purse and a cardigan made of the same material as the two-piece, which she held in one hand and draped over her shoulder.

The Guest in Residence founder’s long blonde locks were styled into mermaid beach waves and the 28-year-old rocked her signature simple no-makeup makeup look, including feathered brows, a dash of brown eyeliner and a glossy dark nude lip.

Merritt sported her version of the quiet luxury-inspired set during New York Fashion Week as she attended an event with Dior and Jean-Michel Othoniel at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens on Sept. 7. The 26-year-old sported a longline vest, fully buttoned and hanging over the waistband of her wide-leg tailored pants. She opted for a full monochrome look with strappy white heels and a white Dior saddle bag. The Instagram fashion icon accessorized with a statement chain necklace, and a single bracelet and opted for a sultry makeup look featuring dramatic lashes, terracotta blush and a glossy brown lip. Her long dark locks were smooth and freshly blown out.
