As versatile as it’s moodier counterpart, the little white dress transitions seamlessly from desk to dinner, and with well-chosen accessories, can channel uptown elegance or downtown cool. So if you’re short on ideas on how to style your LWD, here are 15 amazing ways that work for every instance this season.
1. With a leather jacket and trendy sneakers.
Throw on a cropped leather motorcycle jacket and a pair of trendy sneakers with your little white dress, and you’re sure to nail the feminine yet edgy look. A great outfit for casual dates and running errands.
2. Denim shorts and LWD
Make your look even more edgy and channel your inner biker chic vibe by wearing denim shorts and knee high lace-up boots with your LWD.
3. LWD+Lady like bag+Statement necklace+Pointy pumps
These are the ingredients for a recipe that screams women power. For those looking for inspiration, Olivia Palermo shows us just how to pull it off. You can switch the bag for a calf length white coat for the ultimate fashion girl look.
4. Layered over a collared shirt
Layer your favorite sleeveless LWD over a collared shirt and you’ll be giving a new life to your dress. The shirt can be short sleeved or long sleeved, it can be black or florescent green, the choice is all yours. Top it off with a fedora or a floppy hat.
5. With brogues and a bold red lip
If you want to create the perfect balance between androgyny and femininity, then pairing your LWD with menswear style brogues and bold red lips is what you should go for.
6. With gladiator sandals
There’s nothing more boho chic than gladiator sandals, be it ankle length or knee high. So if you’re looking for some boho flair, then it’s a good idea to pair a tunic style little white dress with these warriors. One of this seasons hottest trend ‘the bucket bag’ is a killer way to finish off this look.
7. With all beige accessories
Pairing your LWD with nude and pastel accessories brings about a truly refreshing look. It gives it a casual and natural appeal. The trick is to pair it with comfortable chic accessories like flat sandals, bracelets and even a fedora.
8. With statement scarf and pastels
Like I said earlier, pastels and nude are a yummy combination. For that much needed POP to your little white dress, you can pair it with anything from colorful scarfs to graphic stilettos. But keep in mind to select only a simple dress when doing this. After all, nobody wants to look like their trying too hard.
9. LWD + Denim jacket
Go free spirited and fun by coupling your dress with your best denim jacket and a wide brimmed, floppy straw hat. It also has a slight vintage look to it too, doesn’t it?
10. Black blazer and LWD
Put in your crisp black blazer and a metallic clutch with your LWD to obtain a look that easily goes from the office to happy hours.
11. With stacked bangles
A solid white base leaves lots of room to play with bracelets of varying sizes, colors and textures. It’s like an artist’s canvas out there. So you can go old-school with a simple yet chic stack of golden bangles or get inspired by Nicole Ritchie, who shows off her eclectic style with matching bracelets on each wrist and her arm.
12. With a bold belt
It could be to cinch a shirt dress around the waist or simply as a fashion statement. Whatever be the reason, a bold belt(especially ones in metallic colors) can up your style quotient in a jiffy. While Michelle Obama’s gunmetal belt takes her shift dress down a more contemporary route, Cameron Diaz uses her cherry red choice to perk up her girly number.
13. Long cute chains
If statement necklaces are bold, long chains are anything but girly. So wear your favorite charm as a stylish centerpiece to a draped or structured LWD. Take notes from Sarah Jessica Parker and Olivia Palermo’s style files.
14. With bright clutches
You don’t need any other accessory to give that extra oomph to your LWD than a simple bright clutch. It adds a playful element and almost every shade and design matches a white palette. From box to envelope clutches, you’ll never be short of options.
15. With chandelier earrings
Glistening chandelier earrings can serve as a focal point when wearing a shoulder-baring LWD. These earrings can be in bold, bright colors for a sassy look or you can stay classy with simple and elegant white chandeliers with a tad bit of shimmer like Selena Gomez.
It’s a long list, I know!
But a LWD is lot like a blank paper just waiting for you to start doodling. So all the ladies out there, style it like you meant it!
