Holiday Staple: Little White Dress

Summer Wardrobe Essential - Little White Dress - LifestyleFashionista

Forget the LBD! Now it’s the perfect time to wear the LWD (that’s the little white dress). The summer staple not only feels fresh and modern compared to its sombre sisters, but it can also be thrown on for myriad occasions – summer holidays, engagement parties, christenings, outdoor parties – basically just about anything that’s not someone else’s wedding. 

The little white dress is perfect holiday wear. I even would say a white dress is to summer, what a fur gillet is to winter. It’s such a versatile piece – paired with pointy pumps and statement sunnies at the office and sandy feet and a straw bag on holidays will make you look absolutely absolutely fabulous. Also what else would you wear when you want to show off your beautiful tan?!

So obviously I packed it to my recent trip to Ibiza. I  am absolutely in love with this dress and I hope the weather in London will finally warm up that I could wear it not only during my holidays. The silhouthette is so flattering and the fabric keeps you cool even during the hottest day.

Where to wear it?

I wore it to Ses Salines beach in Ibiza which is probably the best Ibiza’s beach. It’s backed by towering sand dunes and patches of sabina pine woodland. Here you will find celebrities, Spanish footballers and party poseurs.

White dress is beach holiday staple and you can wear it everywhere. It creates that effortless chic vibe. LWD is again one of these pieces which look great during the day and evening which is perfect if you don’t have time to change before dinner or cocktails. You can also create many different looks by choosing different accessories. Any white dress can switch its style in a second with the help of shoes. Wedges or ankle boots will create a boho chic vibe, sandals are perfect for holiday and killer heels will make it very cocktail appropriate.
