The Little White Dress (LWD for short) is summer's hottest fashion trend. That's because it's so versatile--you can dress it down, or make it glam with just a few key accessories. To get Emma Watson's party-ready look, pair your LWD with some shiny silver pumps and layer on the bling.

A loose, flowy white dress like Ashley Greene's is the perfect way to beat the heat and look good while you do it. Billowy dresses tend to be a bit shapeless, so use a skinny brown belt to cinch in your waist and show off your svelte shape.

The key to pulling off a long white dress like Katie Cassidy's peekaboo lace number here? Make sure it's either textured or has some sort of pattern; a plain white dress might end up looking a little too bridal. Finish off this bohemian-cool style with tousled, beachy waves and you've got a summer look that's right for day or night.

Take a cue from fashion darling Rachel Bilson and wear your LWD with a brightly-colored blazer--the white of the dress creates a nice contrast against the vivid hue, giving you a hip, fashionista vibe. Keep your accessories neutral in order to avoid any color clashing.

An easy way to punch up a classic white sheath like like Nicky Hilton's is to pair it with a statement necklace. Since your dress is so simple, you can go crazy with your jewelry--try a beaded bib necklace in a summery shade like turquoise or coral.
