According to Gywneth Paltrow's latest GOOP newsletter, the little white dress is at the top of her spring must-haves: “The little white dress, in all its incarnations, is the perfect piece to pack for all your summer getaways." The actress is no stranger to the versatility of this feminine frock, as she's been spotted in many versions of the spring staple (from far left): Paltrow threw a tailored black jacket over her ruffled Valentino dress for a touch of sophistication, and a strong-shouldered white Balmain blazer over a Calvin Klein sheath for a monochromatic look. The fitness devotee showed off her killer legs in Proenza Schouler's long-sleeved minidress and Stella McCartney's uber-short strapless number. To update your LWD this season, Paltrow recommends you "balance the innocence of a simple dress with a chic, oversized cape or anorak in tan and camel.” See more of Paltrow's spring fashion picks on
