No more brrr nights! Watch your summer wardrobe unearth itself, piece by piece, as we transition to balmy weather. Back on the shelf go the heavy layers and deep, somber shades—and out come the breezy fabrics, bright pairings, and little white dresses!
An LWD (as this frock is concisely called) is a must-have when shifting to sunnier climes. It can be styled to suit any season, of course, but nothing tops the fresh factor of a white dress on a summer’s day. Clean, simple, and surprisingly multi-purpose, this dress can recharge any outfit and take your mix-and-match options to a whole new level.
Below, find 20 ways to wear this hot season staple. Remember, white is the ultimate neutral, so it goes with everything. A huge perk for the busy girl surviving on a limited closet!
