How to Style a Little White Dress
Watch as we style our Whenever Wherever LWD for casual Fridays in the office and date night. Then read on for tips on finding the most figure-flattering white dress for your shape.


A little white dress, or LWD, is to spring and summer months what the little black dress is to fall and winter....a tried-and-true wardrobe ESSENTIAL! And let's face it, sometimes it's just too hot to wear black. Luckily, like it's reliable cousin, a white dress is equally chic and can be just as flattering. The key is in finding the perfect fit for your body type and styling it once you've found the "the one."

Your perfect silhouette:

  • A fit & flare white dress (featured): This cut has a fitted waist and flowy bottom—the ideal fit for the busty or curvy ladies. The silhouette balances out your top and bottom by giving you that ever-coveted hourglass figure. Play with textured details such as cut-outs or lace to add interest and dimension to this classic style.
  • An a-line white dress: With a bottom that slightly grazes your body, this dress will be instrumental in concealing your midsection. So go on, have that second piece. Try a classic wrap dress for a super-chic timelessness. If you’re not comfortable in the all-white get-up, weave in some color with a bright chunky necklace or a bold color on your shoes—bonus points for a floral print heel!
  • A maxi white dress: The maxi is universally flattering on all shapes and super comfortable! Skip the casual fabrics such as cotton or jersey and opt for a dressier feel in a chiffon, silk or a poly blend dress. Silver or gold will add even more pop with a white background, so break out the sparkly accessories.
