Lea Michele and her Glee castmates filmed scenes for an upcoming episode in NYC, and Lea's character Rachel looked impeccably chic in a black-and-white ensemble.

Up top Lea wore a black tank topped with a crisp white Theyskens' Theory blazer ($675), while on bottom she donned short black shorts with black platform Marc by Marc Jacobs pumps ($295).

Kim Kardashian looked fresh as ever in all white while visiting the Children's Hospital in LA with boyfriend Kanye West. Her tan suede Celine bag and Balenciaga peep-toe booties lent just the right amount of color and texture to her look. Summer is the perfect time to experiment with an all-white ensemble, be it a white open blazer, white tank, and white skinny jeans like Kim; a white tee with white shorts and a white denim jacket; or a little white dress with a white cardigan. Although Kim's white BCBGMAXAZRIA blazer isn't available — here is the blush version ($201, originally $268) — you can pair any crisp white jacket with a white tank and white jeans to achieve her refreshing look.

Rashida Jones showcased the perfect Spring ensemble via teal Ann Taylor shorts, a crisp white J Brand blazer, and a floral H&M blouse after leaving the Today show in NYC. White is hot in Hollywood right now — especially white-hot pumps — and by adding a pop of teal, Rashida's look went to even more exciting heights. The actress accessorized her polished pairing with a crossbody Celine tote, black oxfords, and nude shades, then injected a bit of bling via Kara Ackerman diamond drop earrings and a Pamela Love ring. Score Rashida's exact J Brand blazer to work with your teal shorts for a sweet sunny style, then when it gets chilly, switch the shorts for a pair of teal jeans to continue the white-and-teal Spring affair.

Rooney Mara continues to amaze us with her understated yet powerful style. For her latest appearance at the Academy Awards nominations luncheon in Beverly Hills, the actress opted to mix way high with way low, pairing a black Asos jumpsuit with a sharp white Thierry Mugler jacket. For accessories, Rooney kept it simple with just a pinky ring. This look solidifies the fact that it's vital to have a stunning white jacket in your repertoire. Since the Mugler is super pricey, here are a few equally standout, less pricey options. This Miriam Ocariz jacket ($415) would look just as fabulous over a black jumpsuit or dress, this Allynil blazer ($108) has a similar flowy effect, and this European Culture jacket ($158) is just as unique. Now all you need is a wide-legged jumpsuit or trousers to achieve Rooney's fashion-forward look for your next special event.
We all know about the sweeping superstition regarding white clothing and whether or not you should wear it after Labor Day — but truth be told, we at Fab are not of that philosophy. No matter the week, month, or season, white can be a fresh, super-chic component to your look, and nothing says seasonal polish like a crisp white blazer. Just see Jessica Alba for a recent celebrity example: she ignored the rule completely by layering her all-black evening ensemble with a clean white coat and put a new spin on a classic look. All you need to focus on is warming it up with chunky knits, deep colors, and sleek patterns. We plucked this Elizabeth and James Emery blazer ($395) from Summer-style obscurity and styled it up five killer ways to prove that white not only can but should be worn come Fall.
