We're exactly one week away from the "official" start of summer, but we've all already dipped into our white wardrobes, of course!

Here are a few ways to wear white fashionably and fearlessly (like Eva Longoria!)...

The Little White Dress: If white is the new black, then no wardrobe is complete without a LWD. A sleeveless sheath is remarkably versatile - an almost literal blank canvas upon which to build your look.

The White Bag: A snowy purse is the sartorial equivalent of an exclamation mark. Unlike a dark version, which blends, white draws the eye and punches up your look.

White Shades: White-framed sunglasses have been big since the 1950s, when Grace Kelly popularized the cat's-eye. To balance graphic shades, pair with a bright lipstick!

Little White Lie -- White Shoes Are Tacky: Pale pink, nude and white pedicures are especially befitting this season's fashionable white foot-ware. Opt for strappy sandals and sleek heels! Steer clear of anything orthopedic-looking.

The Statement Suit: A classic pantsuit is anything but conservative in brilliant white. Bracelet-length sleeves and a shawl collar can make one feel modern, while linen cotton fabric transitions from day to night.
