This summer, I am all about the LWD — otherwise known as the Little White Dress.
I dreamed about this silhouette from Aritzia (as I do most things) when I spotted it on the racks when it was still freezing in NYC. I decided to purchase and stay optimistic thinking one day summer may indeed come and I can rock this dress with open toe shoes and bare legs.
Finally – summer arrived and it’s insanely hot in NYC. The instant fix? This easy breezy dress that I can take from day to night.
I wanted to show you fellow Fashionistas the versatility of this dress by simple switching up your accessory game.
For a casual day look – I love this paired with a flat cognac sandal, turquoise jewelry and my new favorite tassel earrings. For the summer heat, I love the hairstyle that has been trending over your Instagram feed: the half bun.
This look is perfect for the office, brunch out with the girls, or a fun day date.
For the evening it’s all about your shoes. To add some edge, I paired this dress with my statement heels from Zara. The red gives that extra pop you need that elevates the look into night.
I literally “let my hair down” and embraced my natural waves to switch up my look. It’s important to embrace your natural texture in this season because no matter how much you may try to fight it — the humidity will win.
If you want to add more shape, this dress comes with an adorable rope belt you can tie for a more fitted look. However, I love this dress loose. It has so much movement, and the hem comes up just a bit on the sides to show-off a bit of leg which never hurt anyone.
Are you ready to rock this look day to night? (Cue Kid Cudi.)
