Basics for a Bargain / 10/14/11 Darling of the Day: Miranda Kerr in Leather Bottoms & Casual T-Shirts!


Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr has been spied out & about in Paris during Fashion Week wearing cotton t-shirts & leather bottoms. Of course this isn’t a look that just anyone can pull off, but there are affordable options if you’re daring enough to take the plunge!

On the Victoria’s Secret store site, I found the same oversized tee ($39.50) pictured, modeled by Miranda herself.  Also, the other t-shirt ($8.50) from Old Navy is also sold in five other basic colors.

The bottom half is all about leather, but in our case, faux leather is the best option.  This includes leatherette shorts ($19.80) from Forever 21 & the (minus the) leather seamed mini skirt ($59.90) from Express.

To help elongate the legline, Miranda goes with closed toe pumps with either texture or a pop of color.  The fuchsia platform pumps ($24.70) from GOjane & ‘Shieryl’ pointed toe pumps ($33.74) from ALDO are the perfect way to add some sass & femininity to such a minimalst look.

For one final touch, a pair of black shades ($5.80) easily makes this look day-ready & all the more fabulous!  Pieces like leather skirts or shorts are the best way to change up the way you’re putting together an outfit.  It can be downplayed with an effortless t-shirt & still look like it was something all your own.
