Miranda Kerr has been giving PEOPLE StyleWatch editors a serious case of fashion envy. The supermodel looks ah-maz-ing not just on the runway, but off duty, too! She’s mastered the art of looking chic, edgy and effortless — all at the same time. To prove our point, we’ve broken down how Kerr transforms an outfit from ordinary to pretty much perfect:

Denim shorts & shirt: No matter how hard we try we just never look this cool (left). Is it how she rocks mixed prints via her top and Balenciaga heels? Or is it her $825 Alexander Wang bucket bag that takes the look over the top? Whatever the reason, this is how we wish we look at Sunday brunch.

Maxi dress: Though maxis are a dime a dozen this summer, Kerr’s (second) is a standout. The seafoam color is gorgeous and her signature cateye shades are ultra glam, while her funky orange-and-pink Hermès bag keeps the ensemble young and fresh.

Floral pants: Proving the key to wearing prints is sticking with neutrals, the mom lets her Céline printed pants (third) shine by choosing nude pointy-toe pumps, a cranberry Louis Vuitton bag and a simple gray top.

Ladylike dress: Hello, Jackie O version 2012! The Victoria’s Secret model updates a classic ladies-who-lunch look in a fruit-punch red $429 A.L.C. silk dress (love that keyhole neckline!), her go-to printed Balenciaga platforms and a $564 nude studded Alexander Wang bag.

Thankfully summer is far from over, so that gives us more than enough time to try and recreate these looks. Tell us: Which of Kerr’s outfits is your favorite? Do you like her style?
