Avoid having your white look fall flat by adding subtle details that break-up the look, like a pleated peplum. June adds the perfect accessories into the mix: A Zara pearl choker, Christian Louboutin clutch, and Brian Atwood T-strap platforms to spice up this Suno dress.

If you're a petite frame like Sleepy Hollow's Nicole Beharie find a clean, form-fitted piece so you don't get swallowed by a one that makes you look shapeless in this shade.

White worn too tight can feel overly revealing, strike the perfect balance in a look that grazes, instead of hugging your curves like Angela Simmons. The metal and pearl accessories feel neutral but bold enough to pop.

Take notes on how First Lady Mrs. O topped off a super clean cap-sleeved, A-line Michael Kors dress with game-changing double buckle Alexander McQueen belt. Well done!

A jumpsuit always fits the bill and never fails to look fab, in fact, this style in white looks especially glam, channeling Bianca Jagger's days at Studio 54

White has never looked more fresh than Mrs. Kardashian-West's monotone tux. We'd steal this exact style for a formal event or even replace the pants with knee-length Bermudas on a more relaxed occasion.

If you're in the mood to show some curves, do it naturally in a not-so-skin-tight, slightly ruched number you can still move freely in. And do follow Hall's lead and rock a fun pair of fringed sandals to add oomph to the look.

Garcelle is always spot on with selecting pieces that straddle the line of sexy and classy. Take this cowl-neck number for instance, which can feel dated, but when combined with long sleeves and a midi hemline it serves more of a 70s silhouette we could have totally seen DVF rocking.

White does so well in billowy fabrics. If ethereal and angelic is the look you're going for don't be afraid to transform one of your fancy silk robes into a dress with a small gold belt and a pair of standout stilettos.

If you're on the opposite side of the spectrum like Rih-Rih at the MET Gala, and looking to wear white in a less virginal way a cropped top is your best best. No matter if you pair your midriff moment with a midi or maxi, it''s a no-fail fly style.

Zoe's Saldana's gown, is again, a prime example of how to add surface interest to white, and in this case it's with full-on pleats and a little embellishing.
