It is just as important to own a little white dress as it is to own as a LBD. Think of it as the spring/summer version. While some are deterred from white, because it can have the opposite effect of a slimming black garment, I beg to differ. Here is how to pick out a LWD that is right for you.
It’s not fair to generalize when discussing white garments. Just like any other color, there are slight variations in shades of white. Think about your complexion and choose a contrasting hue. If you have fair skin, go for an off-white or ivory. If you’re tan, the whiter the better.
The shape of the garment is an important factor to consider when you’re working with white. If you have an hourglass figure, avoid shapeless dresses. Instead, gravitate towards dresses that accentuate your upper or lower half. If you’re pear shaped, consider an off the shoulder neckline and an a-line skirt. For rectangular shaped figures, create feminine lines with a halter neckline or fitted bodice.
The length of the dress sets the tone for the occasion. Think of a bride stunning her guests as she walks down the aisle in a floor length gown. Well, a mini dress is flirty and fun, and appropriate for a summer night soirée. A midi length dress is chic and elegant, suitable for a daytime affair.
The featured dress, courtesy of Current Clothing, is flattering for an athletic or shapely frame. The v-neck and fitted bodice will accentuate your goods in all the right places, and the short length allows for a lot of leg action.
Carefully consider the color, the silhouette, and the length when shopping for your next little white dress. In the meantime, find this dress at Current Clothing (text 415-980-4772 to order), or shop my spring favorites and cutout shoes below:
