Summer Essentials: The LWD
With temperatures hovering in the 70s, and reaching the 80s in some parts of the country, spring is on its way out and summer will soon be here. Nothing is more appropriate for the slew of cocktail parties, rooftop events, and summer soirées that fill your calendar this season than the LBD’s cooler step-sister, the LWD or Little White Dress.
Just like your trusty LBD, the LWD can take you from the office to cocktails with the girls after a quick accessory change and is the perfect first date dress when night time temps are still well into the mid 70s. With designers still in love with this crisp, summer alternative to everyone’s favorite cocktail dress, finding the ideal LWD for your figure and skin tone is easier than ever. Although color is all the range this summer, nothing screams chic like a woman in head to toe white without a single drip, spill, or smudge soiling her appearance.
Whether you prefer a strapless number in ivory, an ecru A-line, or a pure white lace dress, designers from Alice + Olivia to Alexander Wang, are putting their stamp on this new staple. Now if only you had something to wear to those weddings you were invited to.
