After all the colour pops of autumn and pattern clashes, I’m quite happy to slip into a calming, minimalstic white dress. For summer 2013, most designers opted for innocent whites: Romantic in broderie and lace as seen at Stella McCartney and Valentino or structured and sporty as seen at Chloe. A LWD Little White dress  is a summer staple.

I like white teamed with simplicity: Above I am wearing a white dress made from waffle Piqué for a structured shape and white piping paired with a black grosgrain belt. White is like a canvas so you can play with colourful belts, blazers and shoes or  stay in the white colour family for a cool white on white style.

What are your favourite Summer Whites? Are you a romantic lace girl, a classic shift dress gal or a sporty Chloe-esque fashionista?

LWD – Little White Dress

Romantique

A great way to show off the rest of the summer tan before it’s time for hiding in darker colours and opaque tights is the LWD.

White suits every skin tone as it comes in different shades: From a clean crisp white to darker-shaded off-white. Lace and eyelet embroidery details look especially feminine and elegant on white. I’m wearing a white summer dress with eyelet embroidery.
