As you can see, I’m obsessed with the color yellow now. It’s so endearing and uplifting, universally flattering and incredibly versatile. It’s also a color that is ageless and seasonless.

There are so many ways to play with it. Start with shapes, you can find flirty peplum, dramatic ball gown, sexy bodycon or sleek sheath from the top picks featured below.

This buoyant color also adds its own spin to our favorite materials: It infuses youthful exuberance to delicate silk, livens up the mature jacquard or tweed, tones down the sexiness of lace

Either wear it as a pop of color to your monochrome ensemble for a chic daytime look or team it with other primary colors or metallic accents for a glamorous evening look, have fun experimenting with your yellow pieces!

I want to dedicate this final part of our “Back to Basics” series to a spring/summer essential: the white dress. Like that special LBD, we all need a little white dress that can represent ourselves.

As you can see from the six outfits featured below, from Rosie Huntington’s sweet romance to Nora Zehetner’s subtle edginess to Jessica Stam’s modern simplicity to Stacy Keibler & Stacy Keibler’s sexy glamour, these fashion-conscious tastemakers stay true to themselves while nodding to the white dress trend that is spotted everywhere now, from the Cannes film festival to the streets.

A great pair of shoes is a perfect match for all these versatile knee-length or slightly above the knee dresses featured today. I handpicked eight of my favorites, from basic, functional neutral pumps to bright color sandals to arty, collect-worthy stilettos, they will surely spice up our LWDs! The best part? They won’t go out of style!
