Spring and summer are the perfect seasons to wear white dresses. Some consider the LWD (little white dress) as necessary as the LBD (little black dress). I don’t agree. I think the LBD is much more necessary than the LWD and not because I’m biased when it comes to my favorite color, black.
It’s undeniable, anyway, that a white dress with the right accessories can provide a perfect show-stopping outfit.
I’m sure some of you (or maybe many) think “mhmm, beautiful but so easy to dirty” at the sight of a white dress/top/pair of pants. I do! But if you’re not afraid of spilling wine, grass, dusty chairs (sometimes having dinner or just drinking a cocktail outdoor is not clothes-friendly) a white dress, being it “little”, mini or maxi, is a good idea.
As a person who believes that “less is more” is often to keep in mind when you have to create an outfit, I think a white dress needs a simple styling. No over accessorizing.
When it comes to shoes, metallic ones are always a good idea. A white dress is perfect with metallic shoes, that maybe are perfect with almost every outfit! But with all the colorful shoes available, a pop of color would let your white dress stand out. I’m not crazy about white dresses and clothes styled with black accessories. I saw this photo of Natalia Vodianova and she looks so chic, but I’m biased when it comes to her, so I would definitely ditch solid black accessories, anyway.
I’m Italian so matchy shoes and bag are not in my “fashion DNA”. With some very few exceptions, the shoes and the bag should be complementary, not matchy-matchy. I wouldn’t carry a wicker bag and wear studded shoes at the same time, for example. This is probably the worst example I could find, I know. Is there somebody who would choose such different styles for an outfit?
These are 10 white dresses I chose for you. I considered many possible occasions to wear them. Daytime, nighttime, work, holiday… I’m sure among them there’s a white dress right for you.
