The Little White Dress

 My latest obsession is the Little White Dress. Forget the Little Black Dress - right now, its all about the LWD. Whether you're pairing it with flats and a fedora this summer, or black tights and wedges this fall, its an incredibly versatile piece to have in your closet - and with all the options and styles out there right now, you could even have more than one option. Besides, what looks better with sun-kissed skin than a crisp, fresh white dress?

Dress it up with heels or down with flats, the LWD makes it look like getting dressed was easy, breezy and effortless - doesn't it just give off a cool, laid-back, free-spirited vibe?

Truly, I could fine a place to wear each of these dresses. The floaty and romantic Nanette Lepore would be perfect for a bridal shower. The minimalist short-sleeve number from A.L.C. would be just right for a day at the office, and the hot little one-shoulder dress from Torn by Ronny Kobo would be the perfect thing to wear dancing on a summer night with the girls. If only wishes came true...

I love that each of these lovely ladies paired her LWD with a great jacket - it really makes the outfit, don't you think? A cropped black leather jacket to make it a little tougher, a little more rock-n-roll, a green military jacket to keep it casual, or a tan leather jacket for a more bohemian feel.

And as if the white dress options above weren't enough to captivate your mind, here are a few more gems!

A Little Black Dress will never go out of style, but this summer, its taking a back seat to the LWD in all its forms and styles. Which one would you pick?
I will take one of each please, thank you.
