Wear White Immediately -- We'll Show You How (PHOTOS)

The old adage that wearing white before Memorial Day is declassé has gone the way of the dinosaur. There's no reason that you can't take a page from celebrities like Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried and Jennifer Lawrence, who all just donned white at the Oscars. All it takes is a few pieces to winterize your look.

It's important to remember that white comes in different shades: you could try a cream-colored coat, an off-white cableknit sweater and eggshell leather pants. Our only tip? Carry that Tide pen for when your lunch misses your mouth. And these pieces are easy to transition to spring: Just lose the tights and the heavy shoes in exchange for sandals or ballet flats. The best part about wearing white after Labor Day is that it's a nice surprise when everyone else is wearing black. What's not to love?

Check out our take on wearing white in winter, as well as some tips on how to transition these outfits to spring:
