Move Over LBD…Make Way for The LWD!

Now that summer is in full swing, we are embracing white dresses. In fact, we would even go as far as to say that they are a summer wardrobe essential. And if you’re looking to dress appropriately for Independence Day, you can easily add some red and blue accessories to celebrate the holiday in style.

The color white represents freshness and elegance. The style can be rocked everywhere from high end summer cocktail parties to relaxed BBQ’s, and they can be accessorized to fit every girl’s personal style. In fact, we are loving white dresses so much that we are wondering why the LBD is getting all of the attention. I think it is time for the world to set their sights on the LWD. Here are our favorite variations of the Little White Dress, all of which are available at Chesterfield Mall.

The cutesy flared style of this skater dress is perfect for the spring and summer months. The collar detail adds an unmistakable element of sophistication. This look is perfect for fun summer gatherings such as barbeques, picnics, and even the Fourth of July. Although this dress has a strong preppy feel to it, you don’t have to have a preppy style to be able to rock this look.

Eyelet is one of the quintessential fabrics of summer. Eyelet styles are always ladylike, but they also have a very relaxed vibe to them due to their breezy texture, which makes them perfect for the warmer months. The delicate embroidery and subtle cut outs will have you looking dainty and elegant.

Don’t underestimate white, it can also be very sexy. For example, take this simple yet gorgeous bodycon dress from Forever 21. Oftentimes, little details can take a simple dress and make it amazing. In this case, the ribbed knit pattern and the seam-stitched detailing take this look up a notch. Also, it is important to note that you can get this look for only thirteen dollars.
