The season’s most pristine looks are also its edgiest... literally. White dresses and tops with slanting necklines and asymmetric hems don’t simply challenge that prim notion about wearing white after Labor Day—they positively deconstruct it. Here, Gina Rodriguez sports an off-the-shoulder Lavish Alice dress with a deep slit at The CW Upfronts event in New York City. The star’s nervy undercut emphasizes her dress’s crisp, origami-like design, while blush-toned Kurt Geiger pumps add structure and softness. All proof that a spotless look can still boast plenty of sex appeal.
True to form
This strapless, body-hugging dress from Hervé Léger by Max Azria combines sharp lines with surreal curves (yours).
A cool twist on teardrop earrings, these edgy gold Makko spears are long on style.
Walking the line
With toes that taper to precise points and stiletto heels, these Christian Louboutin Pigalle Follies pumps in buttery, blush suede are anything but goody-two-shoes.
With its shoulder-exposing cutouts and long, fluted sleeves, this BCBG Max Azria sweater is the ideal antidote to bulky winter knits.
This BCBG Max Azria pencil skirt that hits just around the knees is so slim and spare, it borders on startling.
Black liner is the perfect counterpoint to an all-white look. The soft tip on L’Oréal Paris’ Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner deposits a fluid stroke with a glossy finish.
Punctuated by a single white diamond baguette, this Tate gold ring with a satin finish is emphatically elegant.
A cut above
A horizontal slit above and thick, vertical fringe below give this fitted Hervé Léger by Max Azria dress a swingy, shapely appeal.
