Besides ice cream, nothing beats the heat than a lightweight flowy skirt/dress and sandal combo. Here, Miranda Kerr showed us how to stay pretty and glamorous in this beloved summer ‘uniform’.

The two beautiful, eye-catching maxi skirts on her are definitely the centerpiece. The prints look like art, combined with the easy breezy sheer material, perfect for summer! The sophisticated color and abstract pattern make them great for any age. The best part? They are from affordable Topshop!

For the first look, a basic black top highlights the skirt, the halter neck design alone with T-strap sandals make the look cool and summery. An It bag that has been spotted on her countless times and a red lip dress up the otherwise laid-back outfit while keeping the color scheme sophisticated.

Add a blazer and a ballet flat or heel sandal, you can wear this to the office too. Deep blue color makes this skirt can be easily transformed for fall with a leather jacket and ankle booties.

Leather jacket is no doubt a timeless wardrobe staple. Among all of the colors, black and brown are the most flattering ones that worth the investment and will accompany us for many years. We already talked about classic black leather jacket here, today let’s focus on brown.

Compared to polished and edgy black, brown is more casual and effortlessly chic. Rich brown flatters almost all the skin tones. When the leather breaks down over time, the brown color will appear more attractive.

Above three looks are my favorite. The stars really brought out different sides of a brown leather jacket and showed its versatility:

Heidi Klum (above left)’s sneakers and boyfriend jeans give her brown leather a laid-back, casual vibe; Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (middle)’s skinny jeans and sexy ankle booties add urban chicness to the jacket; Clemence Poesy’s tough boots easily transform the look into an edgy, carefree off- duty outfit. Let alone the unexpected color combinations on them: brown with floral print, with lush green or vibrant red.

Which one is your favorite? And what’s your “secret” to spicing up your brown leather jacket?
