Came across this lovely photo of Miranda Kerr who I absolutely adore. I decided to recreate her look. I have a long black maxi dress and a jean jacket, and that’s really all there is to it. Which is why it’s great. I love the simplicity of it. For some of you this outfit may be more appropriate for Spring or Summer. So to those people…I hate to rub it in, but I wore this today on January 12th because… well…it’s 77 degrees in LA! Don’t hate. But keep this outfit in your back pocket for when Spring arrives.
It’s effortless style like this that models like Miranda Kerr are all about. I can only try to embody that vibe. You don’t have to be a Victoria’s Secret model to feel sexy and casual. A black maxi dress will absolutely do the trick for anyone. It’s slimming, flattering, elongates your body…etc. If you’re short, wear a maxi dress with wedges and it’ll help the feeling like you’re swimming in it.
Now on to my own personal touches. Accessories. My blush leather handbag from J.Crew. This was a splurge Christmas present for myself. As I’ve said before, I believe handbags are not something to skimp on. I love this bag as it can be a shoulder bag or a cross body. The leather is very strong and soft and the color is a new trend this season. It’s unique yet neutral.
Cat eye sunglasses from Ralph Lauren. These are so fun. The front part is purple and the sides are tortoise. I never thought I’d wear purple sunglasses, but I like how you can only tell in the sunlight, otherwise they look black.
Lastly, my every day gold and horn watch by Michael Kors.
