Yesterday, Sophia accused me of hating summer in preference for winter (while she’d be happy to be at the beach all year), but that’s not the case! I love the sunny, relaxed, and oftentimes sweltering days of summer, but I’m a planner. And right about now is when I’m plotting out my must-have fall purchases and how to make my summer pieces transitional.
Florals can sometimes be particularly tricky—one hue too light or one print too whimsical and it looks like you’re wearing your summer dresses one season past their expiration date. But leave it to Miranda Kerr to show us the perfect way to invest in florals in late July and wear them way past September.
While gracing the Escada Joyful Event in Munich, the supermodel paired a lightweight floral Sorpas cardigan with a matching Rava pencil skirt, all by the German design house. The lush hyacinth prints and warm shades are made for summer, while the lightweight knit and and longer lengths are perfectly fall appropriate. She complemented her flawless transitional look with edgier Dior pumps in a purple metallic and a super chic Escada croc-embossed clutch.
