Czech model Karolina Kurkova has recently nailed look after look – her casual style is impeccably put together and she never fails to impress. Seen just running errands around NYC or even taking her young son to school, Karolina is always elegant, fashion-forward and still somehow relaxed and not too overdressed. The model mixes classic, well cut basics such as a white shirt, black skinny jeans, ankle boots or a good fitting blazer with statement pieces that make her stand out: printed dresses, statement shoes, a biker jacket or a brightly coloured skirt are all pieces she’s blended in to her off-duty wardrobe.

Karolina completes her chic looks with sunglasses, a luxurious designer bag or a pair of wedge trainers. She dressed down sharp tailoring to make it more relaxed or throws on heels with a more casual ensemble to give the look a sophisticated boost. Never going overboard, she strikes a balance and makes each outfit her own, layering pieces together flawlessly: knitwear with an open blazer, shirts worn under sweaters – her style is often slightly preppy but it never looks too sporty, she adds feminine touches or even rocks the look in a bold masculine manner.

Here is a peek at some of Karolina’s awe-inspiring street style looks from the past few months: does she ever look bad?
