Lessons in Layering: The Supermodel-Approved Styling Trick That's Perfect for Unpredictable Fall Weather

by Fawnia Soo Hoo

Getty ImagesGetty ImagesIt's all about layering this season--especially when the weather is so up and down--so take advantage of the opportunity and try it the supermodel-approved way.


Of course Miranda Kerr has the lock down on a breezy, "oh, I just ran out of the house and look street style ready" approach to layers. But it really is that easy. She started with a light and versatile foundation of a slubby white tee and distressed denim skirt (which could just as easily be a weekend top and jeans or a work-friendly shift dress) then added on a fitted black blazer, and finally topped the look with a boxy, mid-thigh-length Givenchy wool coat in the same hue.

To avoid any bulky, bunchy lines and stay fashion editor-chic, Miranda threw the coat over her shoulders as a cape. This technique also serves a functional purpose for when it's kinda chilly, but not outright cold or you want to try out the cape-look, but aren't ready to fully commit. (Because it's actually kind of tricky to ride a crowded subway or drive a car while wearing a long cape. Been there.) Next lesson: doubling up, courtesy of Joseph Altuzarra's genius moto-jacket layered over a trench coat for his fall/winter runway. Obsessed with that one, too.
