THE LITTLE WHITE DRESS

with one comment

LBDs are always in, but what’s more in than the Little Black Dress? WHITE. yes, i know enough literature has been exposited on how white is the new black, but most times, people who wear white end up looking like one of the following:

– a bride

– a bridesmaid

– tooo washed out

– weird

so i’m gonna show you a few picks on white dresses i love, and what to look out for when you’re buying your new LWD

look for layering. avoid materials that are satin, or sateen, too many bridzillas in those materials, so probably try something else. this dress below is of crinkled chiffon and that texture adds to making the dress less formal.

the MINI WHITE DRESS with sharp tailoring. when you have sharp edges tailored into a mini dress, you call to mind the crisp white shirt. there is no way you can wear a crisp white shirt for your wedding can you?

 
mix different tones of white. if you’re thinking, how is that possible! white is white…fret not, there’s off-white, no? Pringle of Scotland, Gucci, Fendi, Osman, Calvin Klein and Yves Saint Laurent all began their runway shows with all-white ensembles. you can see how the different tones play out against one another here. throw a duller white cardigan against a shiny white dress to avoid blinding everybody’s eyes!
 
 
Deconstructed White: Fendi, Gianfranco Ferre, Jil Sander, Meadham Kirchhoff, Balmain, Roberto Cavalli, Yves Saint Laurent, what do they all have in common?
decontructed tops, skirts and dresses. better still, when it’s in white. decontruction dont really show in black fabrics and deconstruction works best when used in solid colours. that being said, what better way to look smart and dishevelled all at once? see below.
 
so now that you have a few ways you could spruce up that little white dress of yours without looking like you’re getting married that instance, or re-wearing that wedding stuff, arent you inspired to go out right now to get your little white dress fix? i sure am.
