News & Runway


It happens every spring. After the long, cold days of winter where we are forced to bundle up in layers of clothing in dark colors, we break out into lighter, breezy fabrications in pastel shades. Perhaps symbolic of the seasons, black is always a prominent staple for winter, while white is its polar opposite for summer.


It might have something to do with the blaring sun beating down on us during those hot summer days, but when we start seeing white on the runways again, we know warmer weather is around the corner. Enter the little white dress. It’s been a popular new look for brides lately, but this trend isn’t just for those walking down the aisle. Polished white suits, unfinished sweet minis with ruffles, and sleek white dresses with cutouts will offer a plethora of looks for those summer days.

Sleek and chic in a Gucci cut-out dress will take you from a serious boardroom meeting to a sophisticated cocktail hour.

A picnic in the Hamptons? Not without this adorable Bottega Venetta dress.

A button up dress could double as a boyfriend vest by Akris. Sexy and serious, I see this look being a major staple to mix and match into your current wardrobe.

Ruffles, cutouts, layers and more. Givenchy showed off a fabulous designer little white dress for those fashion forward ladies.

Choose sexy draping for a date night out, or a casual sundress for a relaxed day at home. Just remember to keep it light, and store those black layers in the back of your closet for next fall.
