When you’ve become accustomed to living day in and day out in your most comfortable loungewear, getting dressed — that is, putting on clothes that aren’t your sweats — is an occasion in and of itself. That said, just because you’re wearing a full ensemble for a moment out of the house doesn’t mean you have to forego your comfort entirely. And if you’re looking for an easy way to add a put-together feel to your outfit, take a page from a top model’s book and see how Kaia Gerber styled her Brandy Melville skirt.
Throughout her time in quarantine, Gerber’s been maintaining a regular uniform of coordinated workout sets and athleisure staples. However, the 19-year-old model opted out of her tried-and-true activewear to sport the $28 Jessie Skirt from Brandy Melville with a crop top. Typically speaking, these two pieces together create a summer-ready outfit — but thanks to Gerber’s easy styling trick, her ensemble was ready for fall in seconds.
The model shared her weekend look in a post on Instagram on Sept. 12, pairing her affordable skirt with the $135 Los Feliz Blazer from Emily Ratajkowski’s fashion line, Inamorata. Gerber finished off her outfit with Celine Ava Bag, $1,250 and Dmy by Dmy Valentina Oval-Frame Sunglasses, $155. The end result? A transitional weather look that feels casual, polished, and comfortable.
If you got in on the tennis skirt trend that was everywhere this summer, Gerber gives you a lesson in how to take it into fall. The LA-native’s black blazer — an undeniable staple in anyone’s wardrobe — offers a structured update to her low-key fashion moment. And if you’re looking for a way to dress up your everyday staples — from mini skirts like the model’s to your favorite jeans or leggings – this is it.
Those of who you keep a tab on Gerber’s sartorial decisions will notice that she regularly turns to the blazer for her off-duty outfits — but she isn’t the only one. Earlier this summer, Hailey Bieber sported an oversized blazer with a pair of denim cutoffs, giving her warm-weather look a cooler spin. EmRata recently wore a leather style with Ugg boots and a neon hoodie.
