The essential summer classic

Dresses/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

…is the white dress, also known as LWD. White is an ideal choice for every skin tone as you can wear the individual shade to flatter your skin tone from cold  crisp white to warm off-white and champagne.  It looks best to show off a light tan!

You can’t go wrong with a classic white shift dress as seen at Blumarine SS 2012. White is like a canvas so you can add accessories in your favourite colour.


This gorgeous, embroidered shift dress with black contrasting belt is from Max Mara SS 2012.



White embroidered dress from Max & Co. I added a splash of colour with yellow Pretty Ballerinas. Nothing is more feminine than a dress in broderie anglaise and this year is the season to buy it. Invest in a quality one to add a classic piece to your wardrobe that only gets better with time.
