SPRING Must Have: The Little White Dress

"It somehow combines youthful innocence with pure glamour -- and makes you feel like you should be strolling the cobblestone streets of Europe." 
- Jen Ford of Lucky Magazine 

     For as long as Coco Chanel has been around, women have been programmed to reach out for their LBD's (Little Black Dress) as a go-to option that will always guarantee a very effortlessly chic look. But what about some daytime monochromatic, on-the-go options? Problem solved ladies because this spring season the Little White Dress has finally caught the attention of so many designers! Year after year, I'm always in search for the perfect white day time dress, but time and time again, I'm always disappointed at the quantities of options on the rack or more like the lack there of.  So I was more than thrilled when numerous little white dresses came down the spring runways -- finally there's, a white to my little black dress, a yin to my yang when it comes to dresses [figuratively and literally.] 

     Why all of the excitement? White is the perfect canvas to your spring and summer wardrobe. Just like a blank canvas for painting, there's an 'anything-goes' rule for a little white dress. It's the best color to accessorize with! You can pair it with a chunky statement necklace in any color, a light and colorful scarf, a waist cinching belt in various colors and sizes, other playful jewelry like earrings and bangles, a current on-trend hair accessory or maybe even a wide brimmed hat or straw fedora -- the world is your oyster, if you may. Meaning, you have the ability to achieve anything you want! What's more is that it goes perfectly with your spring and summer shoe options like strappy sandals, ballet flats, wedges, and of course, espadrilles and raffia wedges! There are many more upcoming spring and summer trends to try out this season, but this is definitely the one that everyone should take notice of. It's simple, looks good on everyone, and it's goes perfectly with that new tan! There's something about a white dress that makes you look like you're glowing [with or without a tan.] So add a Little White Dress to your long list of spring to-do list  and check out some of my LWD finds and please make sure you lather up on the SPF lotion before spending a day under the sun!
