1 Item 5 Ways: Little White Dress

Since we told you The Little White Dress will be a basic you can't live without this summer, we thought we'd show you five fab ways to rock it! Since it can take place of your LBD on almost every occasion for the next few months, you need to be able to rely on it from running errands to cocktail parties all summer long. When you're not wearing your maxi dress every way imaginable and the situation simply doesn't call for your crop top, try whipping out your trusty LWD and sporting it one of these five ways.

With Sneakers
Yes, the perfect LWD looks just as great dressed up as it does dressed down. It really will become your best friend this summer because it is just such an easy option. This look is perfect for running errands, hanging around all day, or a super casual day at work! We love the contrast of the feminine LWD against such sporty accessories.

With a Blazer
For those more typical work days in need of an outfit, throw on a blazer over your LWD! This will immediately add that needed professional element to your look, and to totally ring in the season, try a more colorful piece. With such a blank canvas as your base, it can be so fun and so simple to add a pop of color to make your look totally you.

With a Jean Jacket
We absolutely love this look because it is totally perfect for those tricky, dressier daytime parties and outings that often take place during the summer. A denim jacket really is another summer must-have because it will end up being your go-to piece when in need of another layer. With this look, you are totally safe going with a light or dark wash denim, and of course, don't be afraid to add a funky necklace for personality and pizzaz!

Dressed Up
A classic special event look. We love this look for date-night, a company cocktail party, or even a bride to be! We chose to keep the accessories neutral with this look to give it a more demure and sophisticated appeal, but a neon heel or bag would totally do the trick as well! It all comes down to you feeling your best and most beautiful. :)

With a Button Down or Sweater

Another more casual way to rock this summertime trend is with a cardigan or sweater. When tied around your waist, you will achieve the ultimate relaxed, chic appearance. When shopping and running in and out of stores, having this light layer handy will be great when dealing with the cold of mall air conditioning to the heat of the sun. Pair it with your little satchel, another summer essential, and your best walking shoes and you are ready to concur your busy day!

No matter what you're up to during these few sunny months, you know you'll be able to count on your LWD (your new favorite basic) to get you through. Heck! You might end up loving it so much that you continue wearing it into September (who needs rules, anyways... are we right?)
