Click through to see what we learned from Miranda Kerr this year!
Take note: Kerr is a thigh-high master. She's pulled off the boot of the season, all season, by pairing it with skinny jeans and sharply tailored overcoats.
Balmain Suede Thigh High Boots ($1524)
Tossing a coat over your shoulders can make anything look cool, even the most feminine of floral dresses.
You can take a red-eye in style. A tailored jacket gives instant polish to skinny blue jeans and slip-on flats.
On Kerr: Ellery Blazer; FRAME Le Skinny De Jeanne Jeans ($200); Carven Top; Dior Sunglasses; Miu Miu Flats; Viktor & Rolf Tote
Stripped down can be dramatically stunning. Here Kerr accessorizes a leopard print shirt dress with nothing but natural leather K. Jacques sandals.
On Kerr: Equipment Shirtdress; K. Jacques St. Tropez Picon Sandal ($255)
Juicy Couture Silk Leopard Shirt Dress ($228)
The key to mixing whites after Labor Day is textures and proportion. Then add a wildcard, such as an oversized quilted satchel.
On Kerr: Chanel Jacket, Sunglasses and Bag; Stella McCartney Dress; Manolo Blahnik Flower BB Pumps ($399)
Tie-dye tops don't have to be sloppy. By surrounding this print with a draped black skirt, studded boots, and polished bag, it instantly ups the elegance factor.
On Kerr: Proenza Schouler Tie-Dye T-Shirt ($245); Helmut Lang Asymmetric Skirt ($140); Chloe Susanna Studded Leather Boots ($1345); Givenchy Antigona Medium Duffel ($2125); Stella McCartney Sunglasses
There is a ladylike way to do sheer - stick to long sleeves and a knee-length skirt.
On Kerr: Martin Grant Top and Skirt; Casadei Shoes
Mixing shades of gray is truly sexy. A slouchy v-neck pullover, ruffled mini and menswear-inspired overcoat create the perfect storm of daytime bombshell.
Being clad in all-black isn’t mutually exclusive with goth girls and dark clouds. Kerr manages to keep it sunny with cropped leather leggings, a structured bowler tote, and sleek court shoes.
Mackage Samantha Coat ($675)
There is an art to the model-off-duty look. It’s about layer management, mixing stripes and prints, and rocking a pair of Velcro-tab wedge-heel high top sneakers.
Military jackets aren't just for fashion war zones. They create balance when added to a silk blouse and miniskirt combo.
On Kerr: Lily Aldridge for Velvet Ruby Jacket ($150); Josh Goot T-Shirt; Balenciaga Skirt; 3.1 Phillip Lim Ryder Satchel ($895); Miu Miu Glitter Infused Cat's Eye Sunglasses ($395); Isabel Marant Dicker Boots ($650)
