Trend to Try: Little White Dress (LWD)
We all know that every woman needs a little black dress (LBD). But, do not forget about the LBD's bright sibling: the little white dress. It's a summer wardrobe essential that looks great on most skin tones and looks universally appealing on every body type.
On the Spring/Summer runways, the little white dress was a must-have piece in variety of lengths, styles and shades. Givenchy showcases the LWD with a peplum silhouette while Jason Wu and Marchesa used feathered embellishments to make their white dresses stand out. Versace decorated the little white dress with shiny studs.
The LWD is a garment that can easily work for the day and night. For a daytime casual look, a simple white dress paired with a blazer, flats and a colorful belt can work for the office or for an outdoor weekend event. You can even opt for a bohemian style with a crocheted maxi dress paired with a tribal printed handbag.
For a nighttime look, a form-fitting white dress paired with dangling earrings and a sparkling clutch can work for a fun night out with your friends. Try to go classic with a white sheath dress paired with a statement necklace.
1. Select a solid and opaque white dress
White fabric tends to be see-through. Therefore, you have to check the transparency. Place the dress up against the light or place your hand underneath the white fabric to see how transparent it is.
2. Select quality fabric.
Look for dresses that are lined such as ones made from linen or heavy cotton.
3. Wear underwear that is the same color as your skin.
Do not wear white underwear.
A solid white dress gives you plenty of room to play with stacked bracelets whether they are varying in size, color, or texture. To create a chic contrast, try pairing your LWD with a black or printed jacket. Accessories with a tan hue or metallic accents are perfect for white dress. To make a LWD more casual, wrap a patterned scarf around your neck. Belts in bold color schemes look great on a white canvas. Chandelier earrings and long body chains serve as a focal point when wearing a little white dress.
The LWD is summer's hottest fashion trend because it is so versatile. Ladies, will you try it out this summer?
