Close followers know that in my blog, I mainly focus on wearable outfit ideas from style savants, especially when their looks incorporate recycled pieces or wardrobe essentials, like the chambray shirt on Miranda Kerr featured above.

There are countless ways to style a denim shirt/jacket. Among them, the denim on denim look is the trickiest: If you pick the wrong shade (too dark or over blenched), the wrong accessories (say a crystal belt), the ensemble will look unfashionable and dated. Here, Miranda Kerr showed us how to play this resurgent trend in a modern way:

Pick two pieces in different hues, extra bonus for those with different “characters”: A simple, minimal embellished top paired with a deeply distressed skinny or right-on-trend patchwork denim shorts for example.

Use accessories to keep it current: compared to menswear loafers or studded boots, metallic ballet flats and suede/satin slippers are equally chic while adding a luxe and feminine touch.

Keep the rest sleek and clean: Instead of wavy hair, hoop earrings, stacked bracelets, try a modern updo, dainty everyday jewelry and structured handbag in a sophisticated hue, like this understated suede grey tote or this modern black satchel.
