Style Crush, Style Staples: Miranda Kerr

As you all know, I am always looking for new style inspiration and lately I have been inspired by Miranda Kerr's style. What I love about the supermodel's fashion sense is that it is timeless yet current and fashionable yet never trendy. Throughout the years Miss Kerr's style has not veered far away from its classic, chic and, modern characteristics thanks to a few style staples that she has continuously worn throughout the years. You know what they say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" and that could not be more true when it comes to the multitalented model's outfits. When developing your own personal style it is first and foremost important to wear things that make you feel confident - it also helps to have a few items that shape said style. For Miranda Kerr the pieces that shape her style include, the skinny pant, prints, the classic neutral bag, the classic jacket and the denim shirt.

Scroll down to learn a little more about the style staples that make Miranda Kerr my style crush!

1. The Skinny Pant

The skinny pant is something that became trendy a little less than ten years ago and now it is safe to say that it has evolved from being a trend into a classic wardrobe staple, in part because of its versatility and figure-flattery. The super slim skinnies work seamlessly with just about every blouse, shirt and jacket while the slim shape helps to elongate the appearance of your legs and draws attention to the shape of them as well. Miranda Kerr has clearly caught on to the benefits of the skinny pant because it is one of her signature fashion pieces, whether it be a skinny light wash jean or a skinny leather pant, the skinny pant are an integral part of Miranda Kerr's style arsenal. The former Victoria's Secret model wears skinny pants stylishly with anything from a loose-fitting blouse to a boyfriend blazer. 

2. Prints

If you are ever looking for a quick, easy way to inject some whimsy to your outfit wearing a printed piece is an easy way to do it. A colourful animal print scarf for example, can take an outfit consisting of a striped top with jeans, from simple to fashion-forward. Miranda Kerr's fashionable and timeless outfits, normally consist of solid basics, except for when she occasionally juxtaposes the modest pieces with prints. If the lover of organic beauty products is wearing a graphic printed, flirty A-line dress with elbow length sleeves or a seventies print pleated above the knee skirt, there is no denying that prints add a fun and playful vibe to Miranda's classic style.

3. The Classic Neutral Bag

An outfit is not quite complete without a handbag and although floral printed handbags and metallic clutches are a hot trend for spring, Miranda tends to carry bags of the more neutral variety. The model is often seen toting medium-sized, neutral coloured multifaceted handbags that add a touch of practicability to her fashion looks and help shape her overall style.

4. The Classic Jacket

A classic jacket comes in many forms even if one of those jackets come in the form of a cropped denim jacket or navy blue coat. What makes a jacket classic, is its sense of timelessness and ability to look fashionable and appropriate with a variety of styles. The new face of Escada's fragrance, Joyful certainly knows how to wear a classic jacket. Case in point, the classic jean jacket in the above photograph looks very stylish and appropriate when combined with the above the knee flared skirt, white collared shirt and wide-brimmed hat. Her navy coat spells confident chic when combined with this purple and white graphic printed dress and softly coloured Prada bag.

5. The Denim Shirt

It seems that these days more and more clothing pieces and accessories are transitioning from trendy, of-the-moment styles to go-to style staples with the denim shirt being no exception. Once upon a time denim shirts were reserved for the wardrobes of country music lovers and one half of the Canadian tuxedo but those days are no longer. Denim shirts are now a part of most wardrobes and what fashionistas reach for when we want to look casual and stylish. Miranda Kerr wears the denim shirt well and often whether it is coupled with a skinny jean or cropped blazer.  The exposed zipper detail of the pocket on Miranda's denim shirt supplements its ability to look edgy and its loose fit is what keeps it comfortable.
