The old rule about wearing white only between Memorial Day and Labor Day is long gone. But head-to-toe white? Chances are you want to save that look for when it is actually summer—which is here! So why not channel Taylor Swift, who wore multiple shades of white while in Rome with new BF Tom Hiddleston, or Jennifer Hudson in tailored pieces? We've rounded up a bunch of different outfit ideas with the color in mind (we know, we know, it's not technically a color). Some are on the dressier side (see: Devon Windsor, Emily Tosta), others are the epitome of casual cool (Gwyneth Paltrow, Gabrielle Union)—but all are totally chic and easy to pull off. See for yourself!
Break up your whites by mixing different shades and materials. Irina Shayk's silky cami dress pops because of the creamy textured blazer she's draped over it.
Lipsy white cami sexy mini dress, $106; Aldo sandals, $80; Mango blazer, $60
If you love wearing your white jeans with a white tee, but also don't want to look like a blank space (see what we did there?), add some accessories à la Taylor Swift and her blush-toned bag.
Mother jeans, $188; Raye x Revolve sandals, $190; Michael by Michael Kors bag, $198
If you're aiming for an edgy all-white look, take notes from Emily Tosta and opt for a crop-top-and-skirt set and wear it with your baddest black booties.
Topshop top and skirt set, $185; Maison Margiela booties, $357; Bauble Bar ring, $34
Try layering a creamy lightweight top under a bright white suit to break things up—as seen here on Jennifer Hudson. Sure, it's only a subtle shift, but it makes the world of a difference.
Lane Bryant pants, $60, The Great T-shirt, $95; Michael by Michael Kors blazer, $158,
If you're headed out for the evening, consider wearing a pretty lace midi dress, like Devon Windsor's, and pair it with neutral booties and an envelope bag.
For Love & Lemons midi dresses online, $246; Rachel Comey boots, $248; Tory Burch bag, $295
Play it casual and sleek like Gwyneth Paltrow by tucking an airy white tank into a pair of white flare jeans. Sunnies also never hurt.
Torrid jeans, $65; H&M tank, $15; Adidas sneakers $75
