It's a little cruel that the season of outdoor barbecues, melting popsicles, and picnic lunches coincides precisely with the season we feel the greatest urge to wear white from head to toe—but here we are again. It's early June, and we can't help but heed the siren call of clothing that's basically an open invitation for stains.
And can you blame us? Just this week, Priyanka Chopra stepped out in a white Zimmermann crop top and ruffled midi skirt—a cool-girl look we're bookmarking for our hypothetical future bridal shower. Kendall Jenner made a case for ultra-flirty broderie lace in a minidress by Daisy and a baby-pink (and baby-size) fur Fendi bag, while Rihanna styled an XXL men's shirt as a minidress with her currently signature off-the-shoulder neckline.
In sum, all the cool kids are doing it. And we certainly aren't going to be left behind when the resulting outfits are this good—even if it does mean we have to be a little more cautious around the Cholula.
Below, see how eight stars are styling all white for summer '17, and shop clothing and accessories to complete the look.
