The Little White Dress

by Jill Manoff

We dress it up, we dress it down, we throw it on again and again. The little white dress is summer’s answer to the LBD, and—thanks to all the new styles—it’s among the current musts. There are fuss-free sheaths just asking to be accessorized, cute-as-can-be shifts topped with layers of lace, a number of standout takes on the trend—all in fresh shapes and with details to match. Love the look? Just take your pick (You can’t go wrong!)—and wear it through Labor Day, whatever your plans. We’ll show you how:

LWD For Work

For Work
Streamlined pumps and a structured bag will keep your LWD from tending too casual. Hint: Neutral extras will work every time. For a bit more polish? Top it all off with a blazer.
Your best bet:
A sleek sheath

LWD For Cocktails

For Cocktails
For a night on the town, the possibilities are endless. We like to start with strappy heels in a metallic or neutral, then add a color pop with our earrings or clutch.
Your best bet:
A body-con dress

LWD For Brunch

For Brunch
Mix in any and all of your fave casual-chic extras—like flat sandals and a fedora or a denim vest and scarf.
Your best bet:
A breezy sundress
