OK, so maybe these boots weren't made so much for walking as they were for head-turning — that's exactly what Miranda Kerr did on her walk around Manhattan. The supermodel showed off a favorite cold-weather combination with a sexier twist, pairing a Alexander Wang sweater dress and a classic coat with statement-making boots and a luxe Givenchy bag in tow. Truthfully, it can look a little more intimidating than it actually is, but even if we don't have Miranda's mile-long stems or her experience on the catwalk, rest assured there are ways to channel the same cozy-meets-confident style.
- The trick to keeping the look from coming across too sexy is in Miranda's sportier knit dress. The marled knit and contrast stitching gives the look a more athletic-inspired style that helps to balance her bold boots. If you're looking to re-create this street-style moment, do opt for heavy knits with covered sleeves and a higher neckline, especially for day. Anything that's too bare is going to cheapen the whole ensemble.
- If Miranda's boots seem like a little much, there are ways to temper the bottom half of the look while still channeling the same standout feel. Add a pair of black tights to offer more coverage on your stems, or opt for a knee-high boot rather than the more fashion-forward over-the-knee silhouette. You can also temper any sexiness with a flat instead of a heeled-style boot.
- Lastly, any other Winter layers will help to divert attention from your boots and tie the look together. Like Miranda, reach for a cool, classic coat to lend more coverage, but you can also add in a scarf or a knit beanie to warm up the look and help ground your statement shoes with a more seasonal feel.
