The LWD (Little White Dress) is one of those wardrobe staples that gets a lot of mileage during the short summer season. Boasting the same easy-to-wear status as its darker counterpart (the little black dress), the LWD is totally versatile and can be dressed up or down for nearly any summertime occasion. Except, of course, if you’re a wedding guest (that’s a big no-no!). But seriously: cocktail party? Wear your LWD with bright pumps and a lightweight embellished jacket. Baseball game? Toss on a zip-up hoodie and Chuck Taylors. Brunch? Keep it simple with an unbuttoned chambray shirt and leather sandals or flats.
The LWD I’m wearing here is super stretchy and textured – and the skater style (i.e.: fit and flare) is almost universally flattering. A tropical floral print clutch (with pops of neon) and pink sandals add a girly touch, while the vintage-feeling leather jacket helps offset some of that sweetness. If you’re searching for the perfect LWD this summer, I rounded up a bunch of options (for any budget) in the “shop the post” section below. Check it out!
