Move Over Black....The Little White Dress

Rachel McAdams and Uma Thurman
Cannes Film Festival 2011

Move over Little Black Dress...there is a new dame in town!  The little white dress has trumped the LBD for summer and we are loving the trend.  Such a fresh and crisp alternative for evening.  The LWD made its debut in droves at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

There was also plenty of white to be found in the spring runway shows, from lace to modern sleekness.   Why wait for Memorial Day Weekend to wear white... we've been wearing it all winter.  This year, white is the new black.

Ladies, you can still feel sexy...even vampy in white.  Perhaps you can pair an unexpected color or accessory with your LWD.  White goes with anything....If you wish to elongate your legs, choose a nude sandal or heel to sport with your dress.

Dolce and Gabbana

Lace can add a feminine touch without being too prim and proper.  These dresses are ladylike but modern.


This dress is a statement piece that says, "I'm Here!"  Paired with a perfect red lipstick and sleek hair, she's sure to turn some heads at a summer affair.

Banana Republic
This dress is a little bit more understated yet sexy and flattering.  It is modern and has that hourglass shape that looks great on most women. If you don't feel entirely comfortable with your arms exposed, drape your shoulders with a silk pashmina.  It also adds a lovely accent of color.

Do you have a little white dress in your closet?  Consider one for your essential wardrobe basics.   The little white dress is destined to become a classic...just like the LBD.  You may end up turning a few heads!
