Ask most boss women, and you’ll find that they have a white jacket, skirt or dress in their closet for when the situation demands it. Crisp, clean and authoritative, sometimes wearing brilliant white is the ultimate power move.

For example, “It” brand Bottega Veneta’s gathered jersey shirtdress ($2,260) strikes the perfect balance. As does this sleek midi from Fendi ($1,980), which is incredibly slimming (we know, we tried it on).

Pair either one with this smart red Prada Ingrid shoulder bag ($2,490), or this Bottega Veneta Olimpia shoulder bag ($1,580). The brand even has red leather earrings ($620) that would pair beautifully with this look. Just add these silver and black leopard-print Plexi stilettos from Gianvito Rossi ($815).

Or go monochrome by accessorizing with Bottega’s Shoulder Pouch leather bag ($2,800) and Fendi’s logo-print patent leather Mary Janes ($950). And start a conversation with these hand-painted white gold-plated Beauvoir earrings from London-based artist Joshua Osborn x Peet Dullaert ($406).

2. The White Dress for Daytime Excursions

Museum exhibit, brunch with the girls, visit to the in-laws, or just running errands – there’s a white dress for that.

When refined casual is what’s needed, we love a dress like KHAITE’s Farrely midi dress ($1,120). It features dropped shoulders, balloon sleeves and a plunging neckline. Smooth and comfortable, it’s constructed from satin-backed crêpe with a side zipper.

Another option is Sarah Burton’s lovely silk-crepe dress for Alexander McQueen ($2,450), which is versatile enough to dress up or down for almost any weekend adventure. Pair it with the brand’s khaki-green leather belt ($990) to up the style quotient. We also love this sophisticated Mimosa Cutout Linen and Silk midi dress from Aje ($595).

Ground the look with white Lamsy ankle boots from Isabel Marant ($1,390). Or Ancient Greek Sandals’ Clio leather flat in olive green ($215). We’d pair those with Chloé’s Aby Day shoulder bag in the new “Honey Gold” colorway ($2,290).

You can also channel your inner Serena Williams with a sporty tennis-inspired jersey dress from Gucci ($1,980). Pair it with this roomy Cushion tote from Loewe in light caramel ($1,950) and tie this Matty Bovan scarf ($310) on the handle.

The Row x Oliver Peoples’ Brooktree sunglasses have rich brown frames and light brown gradient lenses, giving them a vintage feel ($420). And if there’s still a chill in the air, top it all off with this Lisbeth single-breasted faux shearling coat from Stand Studio ($294).

3. The White Dress for Apres-Ski

Hanging out around the fireplace with hot chocolate or a hot toddy and a cuddly white knit dress? Here on Team Snow, that’s our idea of heaven.

This ivory knit Moa dress from The Row ($1,150) or this sleek ribbed sleeveless knit dress from Jil Sander ($701) would do nicely. Personally, we love Theory’s felted wool-cashmere ribbed waist dress ($158). And this one from Vince ($425).

How to accessorize? We say have some fun! For example, you might bring along this Rick Owens baby blue Fat Bunny cross-body bag ($1,880). Or sling Anya Hindmarch’s navy Chubby Wink backpack ($381) over your shoulder.

For footwear, if you’re heading out Montelliana’s white Clara shearling-lined ski boots ($425) are adorable. Don’t forget your scarf – we love this soft baby blue Canada wool scarf from Acne Studios ($180).

If you’re staying in, consider these square-toed Glider slippers in pale gold leather from Emme Parsons ($395). Either way, Moncler’s navy fur-trimmed wool beanie ($350) is the perfect hair accessory.

4. The White Dress for a Beach Vacation

White dresses were made for warm weather and leisure, so the hardest part of this edit is choosing just one. So we choose two. Well, actually we found three that we really love.

Three Graces London‘s airy Dia white cotton dress ($660) and Matteau’s linen cropped top ($320) and gathered maxi skirt ($500) both make for the perfect serene and ethereal vacation look.

Looking for something more fun and flirty? We vote for Zimmerman’s Super Eight linen-blend mini-dress ($995).

We love these Sophie Buhai silver and pearl earrings ($675) to go with them. Ancient Greek Sandals’ Persida flats are vacation-perfect strappy lace-ups ($305). For slightly more polish, Christian Louboutin’s Noemia leather wedge espadrilles ($595) are braided with gold and bronze yarn that will shimmer in the sun.

This sunny yellow Le Panier Soleil tote from Jacquemus is handwoven in Spain ($460). Clyde’s Poppy straw hat ($314) has an extra-wide brim. These over-sized hexogonal Vlogo sunglasses from Valentino ($324) are the perfect finish.

5. The White Dress for Date Night

Valentine’s Day is not far away, and while many will be in little black dresses or romantic blush pink, why not go with a sexy white dress for your next big date night? J-Lo did it to spectacular effect at the CAA after-party following this year’s Golden Globes. We are SO in.

If you agree, Galvan is a great resource for fun and flirty dresses. And the brand’s Gemma chiffon dress ($1,595) is a beauty, crafted with transparent sequins. If you want a bit less bling, consider this white stretch jersey ruched dress from Alexandre Vauthier ($1,378).

The Attico’s white wristlet pouch ($1,212) is created with hundreds of wispy ostrich feathers and beading. Gianvito Rossi’s Poppy silver heeled sandals ($995) are made from leather with a metallic finish. We also love Christian Louboutin’s minimalist Jonatina leather sandals ($790).

Saskia Diez’s silver tone earrings ($359) are cool, and perfect complements to this Paco Rabanne silver sparkle 1969 bag ($1,184). We also vote for these whimsical oversized star-shaped Morpheus Dream stud earrings ($160) from Maryjane Claverol. Toss on Ganni’s new brocade wrap coat with crystal buttons ($340)
