Kaia Gerber Just Served Up A Lesson In Nailing Transitional Dressing On A Budget
It's no secret that the celeb set has access to just about every designer piece on the market. They're usually the first to sport the latest big-ticket items to make their way down the runway and likely have a wardrobe filled to the brim with luxury staples you could only ever dream of owning. While this might make it seem like emulating your favorite tastemakers is, well, quite difficult, you'll be happy to know they have plenty of budget-friendly pieces hanging in their closets, too. One such essential is Kaia Gerber's floral-print wrap dress, which makes for an affordable one-and-done outfit that transitions into fall seamlessly.
Gerber has worn some pretty lavish pieces in her time — after all, she's walked the runway shows for industry icons like Chanel, Versace, Calvin Klein, Prada, and Marc Jacobs. But when it comes to the 17-year-old's off-duty style, casual-cool is the name of the game. That means cutoff shorts, black high-top Converse, jean jackets, and easygoing frocks are her go-to when she's strolling around the Big Apple or grabbing lunch with friends in L.A. Better yet, many of her favorite essentials ring in at under $50, which makes it super easy for you to recreate her sartorial moments at home.
On Aug. 6, Gerber was spotted out and about in New York City, wearing yet another down-to-earth look that's guaranteed to be your new favorite outfit formula for the end of summer — and it's one you can carry with you into fall, as well. The hero piece in the model's look was a $38 floral-print wrap from Brandy Melville, a brand she shops quite frequently.
The mid-length frock hits right at the knees and features a V-neck front that's perfect for showing off your necklaces. It pairs well with sneakers and flats, but Gerber reached for the shoe style every model has been wearing this season: combat boots.
That's right, Gerber upped the edge of the sweet frock by pairing it with black, lace-up boots by Prada. She added in a leather shoulder bag and cat-eye sunglasses, also from the Italian fashion house. An effortless ponytail, styled with a few face framing strands, rounded out her off-duty look flawlessly.
As fall approaches, it's time to think seriously about your cold-weather wardrobe. Luckily, there are plenty of celeb street-style moments that you can draw inspiration from — and Gerber's wrap dress-and-boots combo is one must-try.
