As you can see from the four looks above, today our featured item is the classic denim jacket, in particular the cropped, medium to dark wash version. This shade goes with everything and is great for year-round wear. The cropped length is versatile and leg-elongating!

During spring/summer, I especially love paring it with soft, delicate feminine pieces, like floral or lace sundresses on the ladies above. With comfortable walking booties or sneakers, the finishing outfit can take you from street to beach. With sexy stilettos and scarlet lips, January Jones even worn it to the red carpet!

This summer, wherever you go, pack your favorite denim jacket with you!

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.

Maxi dress is undoubtedly a wardrobe staple. Among so many choices, I especially adore the simplicity and versatility of a sleek black maxi dress. Last summer I shared three ways to style them. This summer, as a trend of this season, the color black takes the center stage. No better time to score your own black maxi dress and make the best use of it all the way through fall!

As you can see from the four looks of Miranda Kerr (above), with the simple silhouette and never-go-out-of style color, a black maxi dress can take us anywhere: Team it with ankle booties, studded tote and oversized sunglasses, you get an effortlessly chic “models off-duty” inspired look; Wear it with glamorous heels and fine jewelry, you are party-ready; Top it off with a denim jacket, printed crossbody bag and flip-flops, you are laid-back yet stylish; Pair it with a light weight scarf, leather jacket and easy walk shoes, you get a comfy yet polished travel outfit, the list goes on…

The best part of a black maxi dress is that you can transform it simply by changing accessories. Want an urban bohemian look? Wear a printed scarf as a belt, finish it off with gladiator sandals. Need a rock ‘n roll touch? Add a studded tote and killer booties

Of course you always have the option of wearing it as a skirt by adding a graphic tee, a chambray shirt or a military vest, as you can see from the looks below.

How will you style your black maxi?
