Little White Dress Love

In life there are a few givens. Like Brits talking about the weather {good or bad, or anything in between} and drinking tea. Lots of tea.

When June rolls around and there’s a teeny spot of sunshine you know darn well that we are going to be reaching for a LWD. It’s a given. Every year we add to our growing collection of pretty white dresses, a Summer staple and we think everyone needs one in their wardrobe’s. Heres why…..

White dresses have a certain je ne sais pas,  just think of the iconic looks featuring them; Princess Leia, Julia Roberts in Pretty Women & not forgetting Marilyn of course. All such different styles but all equally powerful. That’s the thing about the LWD, it transcends trends so you know each Summer you’ll be pulling yours out of your wardrobe time & time again.

Whether you opt for a simple shirt dress, something a little bit bohemian or maybe more classic there’s a LWD to fit your style. Plus they are like a blank canvas ready to be adorned with whichever accessories you decide to decorate with.

And that’s not the only reason we think you need one.

It’s also the sort of dress that stands out but does not scream look at me. While we are fans of candy pinks, bright corals and vivid reds, white is simply….chic.

Just like it’s Winter twin the LBD, the LWD is perfect for practically any Summer event.   The jury is still out on whether wearing white to someone else’s wedding is ok or not nowadays {we’d say not} but that aside we think they work on most occasions.

If you need any other reasons to shop then let’s hand it over to the lady herself, Coco Chanel:

“Women think of all colours except the absence of colour. I have said that black has it all and white does too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.”

Who are we to argue?!
