For example, Heidi’s skirt has a wide stripe, while her blouse has a thinner stripe, breaking the two pieces up and creating balance.Photos: Heidi Klum & Beyoncé Knowles; Courtesy of pacificcoastnews.comsplashnews.com.

Love something? Double it! Print on print, denim on denim, and now, stripe on stripe! Like varying the shades of two denim pieces we talked here, the key of mixing stripes is varying the sizes: different widths and directions of the stripes create balance while adding depth and modern vibe to the monochrome ensemble.

To take it to the next level, stars and trendsetters look for details. Today’s featured ladies captured the skin-revealing trend by choosing sheer blouse or cropped top. To rock this trend gracefully, remember two words: balance and peek-a-boo. Long sleeves and modest underwear balance the see-through sheer fabric; Midi length skirt or high-waist pants elevate a crop top.

Choose accessories that are anything but sexy ones, be it classic black pump, whimsical sunglassestomboy backpack, or menswear fedora. Make the juxtaposition unexpected and attractive, in a good and graceful way.

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.

Gemstone of The Peoples: The Charm of Turquoise

Without a doubt, my favorite jewelry piece in this year’s Golden Globe Awards is Heidi Klum’s turquoise necklace. Not just for its charm of this million-dollar necklace but also for the fresh contrast between her bold necklace and sleek nude dress.
