It’s the season for sundresses and sun hats, but we can’t forget that it’s also the time of year when the little white dress reemerges out of our closets and makes a splash in our summer attire. It’s the most versatile of dresses and the styling possibilities are truly endless—the LWD acts as a blank canvas that can be dressed up or down with simple accessories. Keep it simple and sleek with minimal accessories for a clean summer look or dress it up with a bold necklace, a swipe of lipstick and a pair of pointy ankle strap heels for a night out.
When I spotted this Fashionista on a hot summer day, her crisp white dress stood out amongst a sea of black jeans and crop tops. She is rocking a sleeveless, button-down dress that oozes a bit of the mod ‘60s vibes with its swing dress shape. Best of all, this LWD has pockets, making it not only the ideal summer dress because of its versatility but also because of its practicality. It’s the perfect length—not too long and not too short—and she dresses it up with the right pieces for a hot summer day of strolling through art festivals.
A black, triangle shape cross-body bag adds some contrast and character. The bag really pops out because it is placed against a white “backdrop” and it’s such a cute and unique shape. She finishes her summer ensemble with a pair of white leather peep toe boots with a thick black sole. Comfortable with just the right amount of edge, the shoes balance out the entire look and pull together this adorable two-toned outfit.
How To: Achieving this look is simple! Look for any white dress—it can be midi length, above the knee or a maxi dress—in whatever style and shape you prefer. Keep it simple and the attention on the dress by pairing it with only a few additional pieces. You’ll be donning the perfect summer attire with a statement bag, some fun shoes and your LWD.
