Bold colors can really make women shine, especially the classic red. Like the LBD, there is a perfect red dress for everyone. With subtle differences in hues and details, red dresses can reflect many different personalities.

As you can see from today’s featured looks above, by paying attention to details and accessories, these two stars took the right-on-trend fit and flare silhouette to the next level. Miranda Kerr chose one with mesh stripes and beautiful neck design, the peek-a-boo effect along with her scarlet lips adds sexiness to this girly sweet sundress.

Amanda Seyfried’s take on red is more edgy and mystery. The abstract print and front zip on her dress and the shark tooth closure on her heels add a nonconformist touch to her look.

Both outfits are great for weddings, graduations, and countless summer parties. The fit and flare shape flatters many body types.

Denim jacket is truly a trusty staple piece that we can throw on and go. Here I featured two looks to share with you how to team it with some of the newest trends this season and look effortlessly chic. The best part? With some minor change, women of any age can rock these looks beautifully!

The center piece of this look (below) from Jessica Alba is definitely her watercolor printed jeans. To highlight that, she kept every else simple and neutral: A grey denim jacket along with white tee, grey strappy sandal and neutral crossbody bag created a perfect canvas. A delicate necklace brought out the blue in the jeans.

From Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s look below, we can spot several trends: leopard bag (yes, this spring/summer, you can carry your favorite leopard bags, a bright hue is better!), midi skirt and ankle cuff sandals. Since midi skirt and shoes with thick ankle strap can make our legs look shorter, take a hint from Rosie Huntington, choose a body-hugging, high-waisted pencil skirt, team it with a cropped jacket. This light wash denim jacket on her really brought freshness to her monochrome look, along with cool aviator sunglasses, it balanced the feminine and formal vibe of the midi.
