While we're all for achieving monochromatic wardrobe perfection — whether it be head-to-toe black or chic white separates — there's nothing like an unexpected, but well-executed, pop of color. From a bold orange tribal-infused collar necklace to amp up the vibrancy of Emma Stone's Dolce & Gabbana outfit to a bright gem-encrusted gold cuff meant to offset Michelle Williams's ultrafeminine Alexander McQueen gown, all you really need is a strategic burst of accessorized color to keep all eyes on you. We've rounded up five chic celebs (donning all white, of course) and pulled our favorite pumps, blazers, necklaces, and more to style against these supersleek, albeit blank, canvases.

If you're searching for Winter white inspiration, look no further. We spotted a bevy of gorgeous celebs rocking their head-to-toe white looks in the form of fancy gowns, whimsical dresses, and sleek separates. We love the idea of donning a pretty LWD — just look at Sarah Jessica Parker in frothy Louis Vuitton and Kate Beckinsale in a Tadashi Shoji mini — to a holiday party, and if you're feeling especially daring, look to Angeline Jolie for inspiration. We can't get enough of her super chic Stella McCartney silk suit. Just click the slideshow to see even celebs working it in their wintry white hues.
Who said it's the season for dark colors? Recently, we spotted a number of celebs wearing gorgeous white dresses on the red carpet. Just yesterday, Solange Knowles channeled '70s glamour in a beautiful pearl-embellished Alessandra Rich gown paired with a bold statement cuff and clutch. Freida Pinto opted for a more minimal Calvin Klein calf-length white sleeveless dress accessorized with a standout necklace and Marni shoes. Finally, Kirsten Dunst absolutely wowed in a classic off-white Derek Lam Spring 2012 dress that was as simple as it was statement-making. Just more evidence that you too, can wear white in the Fall and Winter. Want to find your perfect white dress? Just click the slideshow to shop our picks.
The white dress is fashion's easy solution to staying chic and cool during Summer, and we've seen them in all variations as celebrities have been spotted wearing the LWD on the streets, at movie premieres, and at swanky soirees. Mila Kunis recently donned two white dresses for her latest Friends With Benefits premiere in Russia, while Sarah Jessica Parker played with shades of cream in lace and chiffon, and Jessica Alba looked flowy and relaxed in a creamy maxi. These are our favorite white dresses from Summer; click to see more celebs wearing the trend and view our suggestions to shop similar items.
White takes precendence over every color this summer, and not only are we wearing it, we're wearing it all over! Chic and easy pieces in soft, billowy silhouettes are what makes the white-hot trend one of the freshest takes on minimalism. Forget adding a pop of color, play with textures instead. Mix a white lace blouse with a white chiffon maxi skirt, or opt for an oversized white button up mixed with a billowy white skirt. Don't forget to add a pair of white wedges and a few girly extras, like a bow headband or wide brim fedora.
First, there was Hailee Steinfeld looking fresh and crisp in a Tommy Hilfiger short-sleeve silk crepe pleated dress; then Natalie Portman showed up to a Vanity Fair party in a babydoll dress from H&M's new Conscious Collection with gorgeous floral lace applique. With Spring shopping season about to commence, we're looking for a perfect hybrid of the two: white, a little bit fitted but still a little flowy, crisp, but with feminine details. After combing the market, we came up with not one but 12 perfect dresses. Our favorite is the Temperley dress with ornate lace. Happy shopping!
