Miranda Kerr Style For Less

Miranda Kerr I love it when celebs have their own unique style that they stick to instead of wearing anything and everything that is has been dubbed “on-trend” at the moment. At the top of that list is Miranda Kerr. When she’s not modeling bikinis or unmentionables, she tends to go for simple, versatile basics that create a statement-making look when paired together.

I love the idea of throwing a long black blazer over a simple striped dress and casual flip flops. The final element, a quilted black purse with chain accents, adds just the right touch of sophistication to the look.

I’ve reached the conclusion that black will forever be the most versatile color there is. There is simply not other color that can be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion you are dressing for. When shopping in this economy, black pieces seem to be an increasingly smart choice. And many designers appear to be of the same opinion. Calvin Klein is no exception.

I pulled  this look from the Calvin Klein Fall 2009 ready-to-wear line.I love the idea of throwing a feminine blazer that has ruffled details over a simple, one-shoulder LBD and then completing the look with boots, as opposed to pumps, for that urban warrior vibe.

If your office environment is not all about conservative suits, I think this outfit  would be great for work; it’s sexy and sharp without being overly revealing. This type of simple black outfit outfit is also perfect if you are always dashing straight from work to a party, dinner or other event; you can just take off the blazer, throw on some funky jewelry and maybe a scarf, and you’re ready.
