Editor’s Note: The color white: it’s been a summer mainstay for generations, capable of being dressed up or dressed down to suit a variety of occasions.

From romper to off-the-shoulder dress, white is the perfect color to showcase the season’s trendiest silhouettes — and show off your summer tan.
White and lace may seem a conventional, conservative combo, but the fringed hems add unexpected edge.
A sheer, sleeved tunic over white denim shorts takes the color from buttoned-up to beach-y.
Pairing a black bra with a backless number adds some devil-may-care contrast.
