Look For Less: Miranda Kerr’s Sky High Boots

If there’s anything we can learn from Miranda Kerr, it’s that the runway isn’t the only place you can strut your stuff in all the latest trends. Does this girl ever have an off day? Even her two-year-old son Flynn is dressed better than most men out there. The Victoria Secret model made a dramatic exit from her home on the Upper East Side in thigh-high boots and an oversized coat proving that the sky thigh is the limit when it comes to this seasons boot trend. Thigh-high’s are the perfect way to add a little edge to flirty skirts and dresses while keeping your legs warm on cooler days. Keep things simple on top with neutral tones and a comfortable knit sweater for an everyday look that will never fail to turn heads.

Look For Less: Gisele Bundchen’s Statement Sweater

Comfy sweaters are the one clothing item that pretty much everybody owns. You just can’t make it through a cold, winters day without one!

This year, designers such as Givenchy and Kenzo have turned the simple trend into more than just your go-to item for those days youdon’t plan on leaving the house… or the couch. The chic fashion sweatshirt not only provides comfort, but can also be incorporated into any trendy look. You can pair it with distressed jeans for a laidback approach or even a cute skirt for a unique, girly look.

Get some inspiration from supermodel Gisele Bundchen, who was spotted wearing Kenzo’s eye-embellished sweatshirt while shopping in New York City. She paired the trend with black distressed denim and leather ankle boots, giving the eye-catching sweater a laidback cool-girl vibe.

Look For Less: Taylor Swift’s Bold Beanie

With December comes the type of weather that makes many of us want to curl up and hibernate for the rest of the winter. This means it also brings us girls the conflict between wanting to look good, yet stay comfortable at the same time. Taylor Swift teaches us a thing or two about looking cozy-chic while out in New York City, using two of my favourite winteressentials. For starters, a good Starbucks drink is key for keeping warm on cold days, while a bold beanie adds the cherry on top of a cozy, winter look.

The singer kept things simple with a dark navy jacket, preppy polka dot sweater and brown corduroys, making her bold, oxblood beanie the center of attention. This is the perfect look for a casual day of studying, or simply for hiding the fact that you may be having a really bad hair day.

Stay casual, yet chic like Taylor Swift with these pieces:
