I think we all can agree that wearing white after Labor Day is no longer a fashion faux pas. Why was that even a thing? I don’t know and I don’t care. White has always been elegant and lovely to me. And although Lisa Perry‘s 2014 ready-to-wear collection was slated for the spring, her pretty looks are season-less. She had little white dresses and long white dresses, in which case “LWD” could stand for both. Each LWD (long and little) was different and belonged in its own style category. The models wore neutral makeup and their hair was slick and neat. They looked as simple and pure as the dresses they wore. I also loved how there were a variety of shoes. In many runway shows, designers will have the models all in the same shoe. I love shoes, so it’s always nice to see more.
I definitely think the LWD has passed the LBD. The LWD is not typical and it still makes people turn heads. Don’t get me wrong, the LBD is classic fashion and should be in every Fashionista’s closet, but there is something about a little white dress that makes me want to wear it every day. My dress fits into Lisa Perry’s collection not just because it’s an LWD but because it has so much more to offer than being little, white and beautiful. It has pockets, and pockets make the world a better place. Well my world for sure. I originally wanted to keep my look very simple, but knowing myself, I had to add a statement somewhere. My neon manicure wasn’t enough, so I said hello to my floral flats with wrap-around ankle straps. To me, they added a nice pop to my white. They have also become my favorite shoe in my closet.
I started to suggest that everyone should “wear white whenever”, until I thought about an exception. To me, it is absolutely the rudest idea to wear white to someone else’s wedding. It’s not your day, but if you just have to stand out, wear something colorful or the hottest LBD you own. And don’t forget the perfect statement shoe!
