Is it possible to have more inspiration than you need? We think not, which is why we have made it our personal mission to arm you with yet another batch of fresh outfit ideas that will see you through fall in style. In today’s Model Style story, we are shining the spotlight on four of our favorite model muses—Miranda Kerr, Heidi Klum, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Alessandra Ambrosio—and exploring what they wear on chilly fall days and how they wear it! On that note, we suggest you grab a mug of hot chocolate and read on for all the must-know details!
Last month, Miranda Kerr was spotted arriving in Paris, ready for a week of runway shows. Not only is her ensemble spot-on for traveling, but it is perfect for a fall day out and about in a city like Paris. Why does it work so well? Each piece is lightweight but offers a decent amount of coverage, which makes them cool enough for an unexpected glimpse of sun, but cozy enough for when the sun goes down. To try this chic fall look for yourself, pick up a blouse like Free People’s Floral Button-Down ($88) or Zara’s Polka-Dot Blouse ($39.90) and pair it with Current/Elliott’s High-Waist Jeans ($198) and Rag & Bone’s Floppy-Brim Fedora ($150). Then, simply add J Crew’s Cece Ballet Flats ($138) and you’re all set.
In fall, you probably find yourself turning to a few basic pieces—specifically, sweaters, jackets, and ankle boots—time and time again, but how do you put them together? For some fresh ideas, take a look at Heidi Klum, who was spotted out and about in Brentwood earlier this month wearing a dog-print sweater, jeans, and fur-trimmed booties. We like Heidi’s cool yet casual ensemble. The dog motif gives the sweater a surprising twist, and the boots add just a hint of luxury to the outfit. To make this look your own, pick up Heidi’s exact sweater—the German Shepherd Sweater ($925) by Balenciaga—or try Zara’s Feather-Print Sweater ($59.90). Then, slip into your favorite skinny jeans before completing your look with Tory Burch’s Sebastian Fur-Trim Booties ($450).
References to the 1970s have been popping up everywhere for the last year, so it is no surprise to see that the decade is influencing the fall wardrobe of one of our favorite models: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Rosie was spotted out and about in London last week wearing an oversized striped sweater, skinnies, over-the-knee boots, and a felt hat. We like the way Rosie’s outfit balances 70s-inspired pieces with a modern sensibility; the outfit feels totally fresh, not dated. To try this boho-chic fall look for yourself, start by picking up Free People’s Spun Pullover ($168) or Nasty Gal’s Shredded Rainbow Knit ($58). Then, slip into some sleek skinnies—leather or denim—and finish by accessorizing with Brian Atwood’s High-Heeled Boots ($640) and Catarzi’s Floppy Hat ($55.87).
A fur vest is a great way to walk the line between fall and winter, as evidenced by Alessandra Ambrosio, who wore a colorful Isabel Marant vest out to dinner in Los Angeles last month. The pieces she paired her vest with—specifically, a khaki button-down, black jeans, and brown knee-high boots—also toe the line thanks to their lightweight fabrics but covered-up silhouettes. The result? An ensemble that will take you all the way through from early fall to winter. To put together an equally effortless look, pick up Equipment’s Aces Shirt ($115) and Juicy Couture’s Natural Polar Vest ($270) and pair them with a pair of black skinny jeans. Then, throw on ASOS’s Charlize Leather Knee-High Boots ($261.90) and head out the door.
