You can keep on wearing your Little Black Dress straight through to the dog days of summer, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But wouldn’t the opposite end of the spectrum appeal with a freshness, a lightness, an easiness that’s the perfect counterpart for warm weather? Consider the Little White Dress and the many ways the LWD can engage your senses. Casual and gauzy for lazy weekend afternoons but still polished enough for your work week. Say hello to carefree comfort and pristine prettiness when you don the LWD. You’ll love the variety of ways you can wear white this summer.
Start off your basic wardrobe with a white blazer dress that will take you from day to night and become your favorite go-to LWD. Work meetings? No problem with low, block heel pumps. Change to lace-up stilettos (and throw on a smokey eye) and you’re ready for an evening out.
Or make your office staple a white sheath paired with a blazer, then switch to a statement jacket and suede booties that will take you straight through to happy hour.
Here’s one more office-ready idea. A white sweater dress works just fine for summer weather if the knit is thin, the style is sleeveless and accessories are polished. Think caramel leather tote, sandals and thin belt. Make this LWD more casual for the weekend with a backpack and high-top sneakers.
To make a preppy shirtdress less traditional and more playful, go with casual raffia flats and colorful statement jewelry.
White is the epitome of classy monochromatic dressing. It doesn’t matter whether you find a put-together coordinating set to buy or combine two separate pieces you’ve collected along the way. Keep the trend toward monochrome going.
A gauzy cotton sundress and easygoing mules can take the place of the shorts and tank top you’ve lived in all summer long, and the look is just as casual but oh, so much chicer.
