    Even though chic is throwing the rules out the window, it seems like white is de rigeur as we enter the pre-Labor Day home stretch of summer.  Between WWD's Spring 2010 white lingerie round-up, Jennifer Aniston gallavanting around set in NYC in an all-white ensemble and Meredith Veira and Ann Curry evoking a pair of August angels in their summer whites on the Today Show this morning, the palest hue making quite the splash. 

    Amazingly, white manages to channel everything -- from innocent sexpot to preppy vixen -- and the crisp and creamy white that goes out in public can be downright glamazon day or night.  Some of our favorites include the Alexander Wang Crepe Cage Dress ($645), eDressMe's Candela Ivory and Gold Long-Sleeve Cocktail Dress ($370) and, as part of the bridal-gone-out-of-the-box phenomenon over at J. Crew, the Whitney Long Dress  ($395).

    Without a reliance on brights or prints, these dresses give the wearer a sophisticated blank slate for expression.
