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!

Party Looks: Sweet Day or Seductive Night

What comes along with our full-swing social calendar is the constant conundrum: “what to wear?” Today, I picked two glamorous party-perfect outfits that are great for most warm weather events: sweet and demure for daytime, sexy and seductive for night-time.

Miranda Kerr has the ability to seamlessly blend hot trends with her signature glamorous style. I think the key is mixing new with old, mixing unexpected things with familiar elements. For example: choose a mirror floral print or embellished lace dress that’s in classic, sleek sheath or slim pencil silhouette; offset bold, bright pieces with quiet, classic items like a black bag or simple pump.

As always, balance is key. Take a hint from Miranda Kerr: If you already choose a printed dress and bright shoes, keep bag neutral and jewelry to a minimum for a fresh yet sweet daytime look; If you want to go bold for night, like the above right look of Miranda Kerr, opt for a bold dress, statement jewelry and scarlet lip, then keep the color palette simple and sophisticated.

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!
