LINCOLN CENTER — With models surrounded by the latest styles and couture labels, their personal tastes often hint at what's next in fashion.

DNAinfo New York caught up with some models coming and going from shows at New York Fashion Week to get a glimpse of what they're wearing off the runway.

Stephanie Hall, an 18-year-old British model, went for comfort and style with trousers from River Island, a classic trench coat and charcoal ankle boots.  

"I like these pants because they are so comfortable," she said. "They feel like pajamas, but an acceptable type of pajamas."

Heading to the Naeem Khan runway show on Tuesday at Lincoln Center, Svea Berlie, 19, stuck with the national color of her native Holland — orange. She paired it with blue and black heels, a white jacket and an eclectic necklace from Lets Swim to the Moon.

"I'm not with black after five years," she said. "Everything in my wardrobe was black."

Sudanese model Ajak Deng, 22, showed the world her impossibly high legs with cut-off jean shorts and heels from Alexander Wang.

"It's amazing because no guy will bother you," she said, of living the high life.

Model James Smith wore a Burberry jacket, jeans and leopard-print Gourmet shoes on his way home from the J.Crew presentation at Lincoln Center Tuesday.

"When I see something I like, I just put it on," he said. "I don't intend to put anything together."
Frances Coombe, a 20-year-old model from Canada heading to the ADEM runway show, wore her staple outfit — tight jeans, Norma Kamali shades, oversized t-shirt and a Prada bag.

"You just need a great pair of sunglasses and a great bag," she said.
