Discover all the ways to replace your year-round no fail little black dress with this season’s little white dress. It’s time to refresh your colour palette, ditch the dark tones and make room for brighter shades. The LWD, as essential as it is, never goes out of style and is our go-to option when getting dressed in the summer. Don’t get thrown off by the white color being too fragile for warm weather activities – all you need is to A. carry in your purse at all times a magical Tide pen, and B. not invest a heavy portion of your pay check on said dress. Because between unwanted green grass stains, the occasional sweat sessions in the midst of running between meetings, and feeding birthday cake to your godchild, the last thing you need is to send your LWD to the dry cleaner before a long weekend.
Thanks to a little thing called the Internet, and the current sales available on our favorite fashion e-commerces, we found a multitude of ways to look elegant no matter the occasion. Whether it’s from meeting to meet up, a picnic at the beach or a gala night, consult our guide of easy dresses to wear right up until Labor Day.
Starting with more modest dress codes, we’re all ears for cotton-poplin tiered pieces with a mid length, as well as tie-neck maxi dresses rendering themselves just as useful during the day worn with sneakers, as at night time topped with a pair of strappy sandals. Headed straight to the beach? Get your hands on a linen wrap dress, easy to convert into a coverup by flaunting your one-piece or bikini underneath. To stay in the trendy sphere, we recommend adding a silk-satin slip dress to your wardrobe – easy to transition from day tonight and from casual to a more elevated look. And in typical summer fashion, we’ve got a few off the shoulder, crochet and broderie pieces, as well as feminine lace draped dresses and the occasional ruched by bodycon genius Ronny Kobo. Lastly, rely on Scandinavian high street lover, & Other Stories for belted and sleeved LWDs to fulfil that summer daydream state of mind.
