the little white dress

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Put your little black dresses in the backs of your closets ladies because the little white dress is taking over!  Celebrities have been spotted all over wearing them and they are perfect for summer.  Casual or dressy; anything goes with these!

White dresses look great dressed up.  How old Hollywood does Kate Bosworth look?  A shiny bag and heals make it even more fancy (we give you permission to leave your fur at home).  Just remember, no white dresses at weddings unless your are the bride!  You know this, right?

Taking things from your hubby/boyfriend's closet is a huge trend although we don't generally condone literally doing this.  Instead take a cue from Vanessa Hudgens and wear a white shirt dress.  Add a belt to give it some shape.  In a more conservative shape, this can be a great office look.

White dresses look just as great dressed down.  A pair of flat sandals, a hobo bag and scarf (or other accessory of your choice) are all you need!  So easy and so summer!
One of the great things about a white dress is that it gives you a blank slate to work with.  You can choose to go the neural route with black or nude or you can add pops of color in your shoes and accessories.  Check out Cameron Diaz adding color with a red belt and heals.  

Nobody does it like Carrie Bradshaw!  She takes a fairly simple jersey dress and adds her Louboutins and mirrored sunglasses which make it so Carrie.  This is a great example of how you can make a piece your own.  This dress would also look fabulous worn casually but we have to pay our respects to Ms. Bradshaw (or Preston now).
