The little black dress is the epitome of sexiness, but you can’t forget about its sister the LWD, Little White Dress. The perfect basic for warm months, nothing is more versatile than the LWD.
After a long day of lounging by the pool or laying in the sand, the best thing to compliment your tan is a crisp, white dress. It’s not hard to find the perfect LWD for you, I found mine at Nasty Gal and can’t imagine life without it. Another great place you can find white dresses is on LuLu’s. Once you find the perfect one for you there are millions of different ways to dress it up or down, and what a perfect excuse to buy accessories because almost ANYTHING will match.
A loose style white dress is easiest to wear casual, throwing on a statement necklace or layering accessories will change the whole attitude of the dress! The LWD is the easiest piece this summer to personalize, just have fun with it!
A rustic look, so easy for summer nights, is very popular right now. My favorite way to get this look is by adding my blue jean vest, from Forever 21 and chunky western boots (pictured here are Frye Harness but Target offers a more budget friendly version). An over sized clutch is great for day or night pulls the whole outfit together, this straw one I luckily stumbled upon in a antique store here in town.
Light weight, summer scarves are a perfect way to diversify your LWD. Since Fourth of July is right around the corner, who isn’t trying to stock up on their stars & stripes apparel? Adding this American Flag scarf is adorable, now or anytime of the year. Find this scarf on Anna’s Armoire, by liking them on Facebook or following them on Instagram.
Head scarves are your best friend on a bad hair day, but they can also be your LWD’s BFF too. Easy on the wallet and even easier to throw in your hair this Free People Wire Headband. I usually end up taking these head scarves off my head half way through the night because they are so hard to stay on, but this one has a flexible wire inside that really keeps it on your head. I love pairing mine with large thin hoops and a structured brown bag for the perfect retro mix.
Nothing is more elegant than a structured white dress. Plain or detailed you can’t go wrong, I’ve been obsessing over peplum this season so when I found this LWD I died. This dress is perfect by itself, but it’s so fun to play dress up with accessories. I focused on the femininity of the ruffles on the dress by adding dainty dangle earrings and a simple clutch.
You can transition this same dress to day by adding a blazer and fun flats or sneakers. I am loving the neon trend so I pair it with this bright blazer from Forever 21 and neon Keds from H&M. The messy top knot is an effortless way to polish off the outfit.
I think the biggest reason I love white dresses is because I am an accessory hoarder. The LWD is a blank palette for whatever look you want to try out. Always in style you and you can completely express yourself.
