Forget the LBD, Here’s How to Style a Little White Dress for Summer

Little white dresses are a hallmark of summertime. They’re as ubiquitous as backyard barbecues and as classic as poolside mojitos on a hot July afternoon. And just like the LBD, they’re universal. There’s not an age, shape or skin tone that doesn’t look picture-perfect in this shade. And if you’re avoiding white because of size, don’t. Take cues from the runway on how to rock the LWD.

The best part of wearing a white dress is that it serves as a blank canvas, ready and willing to adapt to whatever look you fancy. Want to bring out your bohemian side? Pair a peasant-style white dress with an elongated, suede vest like Alberta Ferretti. Feeling minimalist? Calvin Klein Collection has a pair of 90s nostalgic platforms that will get the point across in no time.
