Local fashion bloggers show us how it’s done.

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.

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).

with neutral ankle-strap ballet flats and a structured satchel. Beachy
waves and oversize sunnies complete the carefree look.

neutral two-toned bag, like this Rebecca Minkoff version ($329.99 at Zappos).

Krystin of Be Loud Be
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.
