SUMMER MUST HAVE: THE LITTLE WHITE DRESS

The little white dress. It’s summer’s answer to the LBD. As the temperatures begin to heat up, it becomes my go-to wardrobe staple. (After all, the last thing I want to be wearing when it’s 103 degrees here is anything dark that might make it feel even warmer.) What I love about a LWD is how easy and effortless it is. Simply throw it on and add a necklace or two, and you instantly look put together. It’s a piece that can easily take you from day to night with a few accessory changes. For instance, this Tibi version would be adorable with simple leather sandals for the afternoon, but add a pair of wedges and some fun jewelry and you’ve got a whole new look for the evening hours. (I also adore this eyelet Pencey version. Crossing my fingers that my size will be available soon.) If you’re doing some summer shopping, look out for a great LWD. You really can’t go wrong with this one.
