Three ways to instantly update your white dress? You probably can tell from the looks above: add a pop of color with an eye-catching red box clutch, draw the eye up with a pair of exotic turquoise earrings; perfectly frame your face with a bold statement necklace. But not all three together of course.

Pay attention to the details when you are picking these outfit makers: for a sharp, modern black and white dress, Nicole Richie picked a red clutch with a whimsical antiqued golden clasp. The snake skin effect faux leather also echoes the edginess of her dress; Rachel Zoe balanced her innocent, sober dress with bold statement necklace and oversized bracelet. Since all of her add-ons are pretty bold, she kept them in a similar tone.

As you can tell from the three pictures below, Taylor Swift’s look is my favorite. Her curvaceous, ravishing dress fits like a glove, a perfect balance between sexy and elegant. The turquoise earrings are truly unexpected on red carpet. To steal a scene, grab the attention, red carpet dressing is all about the unexpected. That’s why a bold turquoise piece can easily beat expensive diamond (remember this look of Hedi Klum?)

We don’t have many chances to wear gowns, but today’s three simple tips work perfectly with your white sundress, maxi dress or sheath. Don’t forget to give them a try when you need to dress up for a night out, a fancy dinner or a formal event!

Pop of yellow on the street

From my previous posts (here and here), close followers may know how much I love yellow. I actually chose a yellow button-down for my first job interview and I was the only one who got the offer. I would rather give the credit to my yellow shirt. For me, it helps to convey the information that I’m easy-going, confident and optimistic which I think are very important qualities of a good team member.

I can’t think of a reason not to wear maxi dresses. Some petites friends may think maxi dress will swallow their figures. But trust me (I’m also a petite), by adding a belt to cinch the waist  and slipping on a pair of sky-high platform sandals or heeled booties, a maxi dress with lightweight material(which lets the dress fall softly over our body), sleek design (which won’t drew attention to our bottom half) and the right length (which almost graze the floor), you will look even more sexy and elegant than you are in your favorite minis.
