Summer is finally in full swing and the ladies on this week's best-dressed list took full advantage of the beautiful weather.

Jada Pinkett Smith looked impossibly chic in a textured white dress, Kelly Rutherford chose a hue that really worked with her skin tone and Reese Witherspoon showed us that it's all in the details.

Check out our favorite looks from the past few days and let us know if you agree with our picks.

  • Play with texture if you're wearing a neutral dress.

    Jada Pinkett Smith in Ermanno Scervino: Smith is the picture of summertime chic. Her clean, white dress is a beautiful shape on her and the texture on the bodice and hemline adds visual interest. We also love how she opted for a strapless neckline to show off her dewy complexion.
  • Don't forget about your shoes.

    Reese Witherspoon in Mugler: This is the dress we want to live in for the next two months. It fits like a glove and has an interesting asymmetrical hem. We also have to applaud Witherspoon for choosing color-blocked shoes.
  • Metallics and whites go together like peanut and jelly.

    Lily James in Ralph Lauren Collection: Wearing a dress that hits below the knee can be tricky because it can easily truncate your legs and make you look shorter, but here, the "Downton Abbey" actress pulled it off by pairing her long skirt with a low neckline and high metallic heels.
  • Choose one focal point.

    Emilia Clarke in Balenciaga: Beads and fringe in one outfit can spell disaster, but Clarke made it work. The neutral color palette and her minimal styling helps to ensure that her dress remains the focal point.
  • Take risks -- no matter your age.

    Kiernan Shipka in Coach: This look right here is why Shipka is the fashion icon that she is. Many people wouldn't think to wear a bandana with a dress, but the 15-year-old actress did it with much success. The patchwork frock and the pattern on her scarf complement one another and make for one trendy look.
  • Certain hues can make your skin glow.

    Kelly Rutherford: That color is doing everything for Rutherford -- it is making her skin glow and her hair shine. And extra points for the belt; it really helps to define her shape in all that fabric.
  • Yes, you can match your shoes to your purse.

    Reese Witherspoon: If only we all looked like this while we were out running errands. Her printed pencil skirt, and matching purse and shoes make the star look put together (and slightly like Elle Woods) -- hey, we're not complaining.
