The LWD: It’s like the LBD’s cooler, cheerier cousin. And for summer, the little white dress’s light, breezy vibe and blank-canvas hue mean it’s just as insanely versatile—and super chic, too. Need proof? Witness a trio of our fave local bloggers rocking their LWDs in three completely different ways.
We love the surprise of crisp white for a nighttime look, and Kendal of Metropolitan Thread does it perfectly by glamming it up with a major statement necklace and gold clutch. Her pleated shift adds just the right touch of on-trend texture.
Steal her style: Erin Fetherston’s leather-and-chiffon dress ($152.75 at Last Call) mirrors the texture blending. Dress it up with a tribal-style bib necklace, like this one by Jules Smith ($120 at Couture Candy), and BCBG’s gold leather pouch ($55.25 at Last Call).
Hellooooo, vacay! Elena of Classy and Fabulous nails the nautical look with her airy strapless number, which she paired with neutral ankle-strap ballet flats and a structured satchel. Beachy waves and oversize sunnies complete the carefree look.
Steal her style: Try Express’ cotton voile frock ($47.94), plus lacy Steve Madden flats ($49.95 at Nordstrom) and a neutral two-toned bag, like this Rebecca Minkoff version ($329.99 at Zappos).
Krystin of Be Loud Be You puts a fresh spin on delicate lace with her feminine dress, which combines a dainty silhouette with sheer lace inset detailing. Lace-up sandals in a salmon hue add a dash of soft color and a trendy finish.
Steal her style: Try Sanctuary’s lace mini ($98 at Nordstrom) paired with Schutz’s lace-up stilettos ($220 at Shopbop).
