The White Lace Dress

There is something so quintessentially summer about a white lace dress. Clean, easy, versatile, the little white dress is easily my favorite summer wardrobe staple. It truly is the summer season’s answer to the colder months’ little black dress.

Why do I love the LWD so much?

1. Versatility

Dress it up with heels or dress it down with flat sandals. Throw it on over a swim suit to go to the beach, or glam it up with lots of sparkly accessories. The options are endless.

2. Keep it Cool

Currently, the midwest is having the first of what’s sure to be many heat waves this summer. White, along with other lighter hues, are just more comfortable during the summer months. White reflects the sun, keeping you cool and giving you great flexibility with your fabric choices.

3. Brighten Up

I tend to live in white in the summer. It brightens up any outfit without adding color and makes even my fair skin feel like it has a hint of color. And although I definitely subscribe to the school of thought that white is appropriate year-round, I tend to wear it a lot more during the warmer months. 

4. The Perfect Backdrop

White is also the perfect clean backdrop if your looking to sample some of spring and summer’s biggest trends like embroidery, lace or ruffles. White also lets your accessories take center stage.
