We don't subscribe to the outdated fashion rule that you can't wear white after Labor Day. (Wear it whenever you want!) However, there is a compelling case for stocking up on white clothes for the summer months. This hue absorbs less heat than darker colors and exudes a certain lightness. Simply put, white clothes in all silhouettes look and feel amazing in the summer. One of our favorite places to scoop up white clothes across all categories, from casual T-shirts to quintessential summer dresses, is Gap. The classic American retailer is known for its high-quality pieces with just the right touch of trendiness to keep them timeless.

Ahead, we've rounded up 15 pieces to consider adding to your summer wardrobe. From a matching set that makes morning prep a breeze, to a maxi skirt our editor adores, and a versatile "brami" you'll constantly reach for as the perfect base layer, these selections will define your summer style. We included both bright white finds and off-white styles, so you've got plenty of options. Keep scrolling to shop our picks.
