Every woman owns, or should own, a little black dress. It’s a closet fashion staple and the peanut butter and jelly of style. But what about the LBD’s close and often overlooked sister the little white dress. The little white dress is a light summery alternative to the classic LBD. On the spring/summer runways of 2012 the little white dress made a delicate little splash, being showed by designers like Jason Wu, Marchesa and Givenchy.  Some designers chose to let a plain white pallet make a statement for them while other designers accented white dresses with shiny studs, feather embellishments and ladylike peplums. The best part about the little white dress is that you can wear it during the day or night time, depending on how you style it.

For a casual summer day little white dress look we suggest channeling a boho chic vibe and pairing a white sundress with an oversized earth tone tote and brown braided sandals. Finish off your look with coral and gold accessories and you’ll be looking like a fashion goddess in no time. For a more formal little white dress look we recommend a white cut out dress. This look is sexy and tantalizing because of the cut outs; however the white will add innocents and balance out the outfit.
