Little White Dresses For Fall: Are You Into This Trend?

Updated

We all have agreed to throw out the rule “no white after Labor Day,” right? A great pair of white pants or a cozy white sweater just works so well into the fall. But lately stars have been taking it to an extreme, wearing flirty little sundresses out and about with mere days to go before November. We’re divided on this trend, so we thought we’d put it up to a reader vote.

From left, you’ve got Emma Stone, visiting Good Morning America in a sweet, bow-bedecked Giambattista Valli number in a lightweight brocade. Thanks to her cool-girl sunnies and tan Valentino heels, we’d guess this was snapped in June if we didn’t have the date in front of us. Ditto Julianne Hough‘s white-and-blush lace Self Portrait separates, worn with stacked nude peep-toes, which would look just as cute on a boat in July as they did in N.Y.C. in October (for the record, it was icky and rainy Tuesday). And finally, Kate Mara showed lots of leg (and a little chest) in a sheer latticed ivory Vielma dress and tan heels (though she added a little weight to the look via a black Botkier clutch).

There’s no denying all three look adorable, but we have to wonder about whether these girlie little white dresses work in N.Y.C. (not even L.A., which is still jean shorts weather!) this late into fall. But we aren’t going to be the deciding factor – weigh in below and share your thoughts in the comments!
