There are always lazy days when I don’t want to think about my outfit, just gravitate towards some simple yet trusty pieces, like a basic black top and favorite skinny jeans or denim shorts.

For omnipresent combo like this, as always, we need to rely on accessories to make them stand out. As Rosie Huntington-Whiteley & Miranda Kerr showed here: a chic fedora, right-on-trend studded booties, eye-catching yet practical ‘It’ bags, fabulous sunglasses or even just a wipe of red lipstick can make a big difference.

Another trick learned from Miranda Kerr: if you are self-conscious about a certain back area like I do when wearing hot shorts (you know what I mean), tie something around your waist: a denim shirt, leather jacket, hoodies or cardigan, which will add details to an outfit while super practical when temperature changes.

In Chinese: 总有那么几天,出门前懒得去想该穿什么,习惯性地把手伸向衣橱里那些我最信任的单品:简单的黑白T和牛仔裤。但是要把这些太过于平常的搭配穿出彩,配饰总是必不可少的。就像今天的这两位街拍偶像示范的一样:无论是一顶绅士风格的小礼帽,一双大热的铆钉踝靴,还是抢眼又实用的IT包,都能瞬间提升即使是最简单的搭配。

一个小技巧:如果你也有和我一样的困扰,穿热裤的时候总是担心后面太短,那就像辣妈Miranda Kerr学习,系一个外套在腰间,不但可以增加层次感,当气温变化的时候也能保暖。

The power of investment worthy accessories gets approved here again on Miranda Kerr: the same bag and shoe were paired with different dresses, resulting two different but equally eye-catching and glamorous outfits. I love how she played with prints and colors for these two looks:

when wearing a printed dress, instead of adding neutral accessories, choose those that can pick up one color in your dress or, even bolder, pick one that is a good contrast to your dress. Here, Miranda Kerr paired a blue leather bag with blue printed dress (in the same color family) and an orange one (color contrast).

Mixing prints is also another way to elevate a look, making it fun and youthful. Accessories are always a great and easy way to start, like the leopard pump on her.

These two looks are Miranda Kerr’s recent airport outfits, but for most of us, they are great for many other occasions: baby/bridal shower, weddings, dinner or date. The length and prints of these dresses make them great for women of all ages.

As you can see from above, we moved from classic blue to crisp white today! How can we get through summer without a perfect pair of white shorts? They just make everything instantly summer-ready, even the dark black or warm brown.

The pure, clean color makes a perfect canvas for beautiful printed tops, be it a bold animal print version like the one on Heidi Klum (above left) or an tropical ombre shirt like seen on Alessandra Ambrosio (above right) which slightly dresses up the look, makes you stand out effortlessly.

Instead of wearing ankle boots that we usually do with blue denim, team your fresh white shorts with sandals: casual Gizeh version for a laid-back weekend or embellished strappy ones for hanging out with friends or a casual date.

To let all eyes focus on your top, pay attention to the accessories: they need to compliment your clothing without competing. The best way to do so is to keep them in a similar color family of your clothing, like the two stars did here: one chose earthy brown and warm gold to go with the white, another opted for cool blue and silver.
