Why You Need A Little White Dress This Summer

little white dress

We’ve all heard about how a little black dress is a wardrobe staple. And it is true, it is a classic piece that can be styled in many ways. But what about a little white dress? If a little black dress is the staple of cold months, a little white dress is perfect for summer! Bright colors are great – you know my love for them – but white is just as nice! And it keeps you fresh when it is boiling outside!

The good thing with a little white dress is that it is super versatile. Dress it up or down, go from day to night, style it with a blazer or a biker jacket, wear stilettos or trainers, it can be worn in so many different ways. It is almost like wearing a different dress each time. Accessories are important, you got it.

I don’t own that many little white dresses though. Actually just one. That one. So you get why its versatility is so great. Paired up with green velvet heels and my Furla Toni Mango cross-body bag, I wore this dress to my cousin’s wedding. Yeah, considering how hot it was (37°C), I decided that the midi dress I had previously chosen would not work!

For an eddy look, I paired the dress with this black cardigan, colorful bamboo bag and burgundy heels. I love that bag! But I am not short of styling ideas just yet. Pair the dress up with a denim jacket, a straw bag and flats and you’ve got the perfect romantic look.

And so many other ways to style it.

This little white dress is going to be a summer staple for me. At work, in the city, on holiday, you can be sure I’ll be wearing it often!

    That’s such a nice dress. Wish I felt confident enough to wear a white dress but with my pale skin it’s a no go!

    Such a style statement on it’s own! I really like simple subtle looks that ooze fashion with out trying so hard and you accomplished that by pointing out the need for a little white dress. Nice work!

    That’s such a cute dress, so light and perfect for the summer! I love how you have styled it with the black cardigan. I imagine this dress would work well with any accessories, especially a demin jacket. Great post Corinne, thanks for the inspiration ? xx

    That is such a lovely dress! I am loving the wrap around detail at the neck of the dress ? It’s such a summery dress that would look fab with a wide range of accessories. I’ve always been a bit nervous to try a white dress, might have to go try one on now!

    I’m always in awe of your style and outfit photos, the location for these images is particularly stunning as well, I love the pink wall! I can’t wear white much because I’m so pale I just look like a ghost floating along but you pull off the colour so well with your gorgeous skin tone x x

    This is such a cute white dress. I love how you styled it with the jacket!!!

  14. July 19, 2018 / 10:03 pm

    You’re so right. I have a few little white dresses actually and I haven’t worn any of them yet this year. You’ve got me seriously questioning why when it’s been so nice out x


  15. July 20, 2018 / 2:48 am

    Very cute. I have a few little black dresses but none white. I’m going to need to expand my closet with a few white ones 🙂

    I think you need to do a post on how you keep that white dress white because I only have ONE white anything in my closet and I haven’t worn it for 2 years because of dirt. I cannot stand white items looking grimey and gritty. The dress is cute and I agree, I think a LWD is a great staple. But dirt!!

    This dress is very cute and you look cute in it!

  23. July 20, 2018 / 7:27 pm

    The idea of wearing white terrifies me. I’ve always stayed away from it despite how beautiful it is.
    It’s gives such a fresh vibe and is so versatile. Still terrifying though…

    I’ve been trying to find a suitable white dress for myself for the longest time with no luck! I think they’re so pretty and summery and I love the marilyn monroe vibe of them with red lips too. Hoping I find one that suits me soon as some of them can be so see-through too!

    This outfit is stunning! I don’t actually own a white dress, but I think something like this would, as you say, be perfect to dress up or down. I wish I had worn more summer dresses this season, make the most of them while the weather is so nice! Great post x

    I am a fan of white clothes whether dress or a basic tee in Summer. They are so versatile that they can be mixed and matched with almost anything. Keep rocking it.

  29. July 21, 2018 / 3:34 pm

    This is so true, everyone needs a little white dress in their life, especially for summer! I love that you paired it with the splash of color with the shoes and purse. It looks great! Thanks for sharing!

  30. July 21, 2018 / 6:02 pm

    You look very beautiful and confident in the white dress. White dress is the forever trend. It will be more beautiful if we match it with colorful accessories.

  31. July 22, 2018 / 10:31 am

    You look adorable! I’ve been looking to buy a little white dress for a while, and this has convinced me I need one even more!

    This is such a pretty dress, everyone should own a little white dress, it’s definitely as versatile as the black version.



  33. July 23, 2018 / 3:56 am

    That is such a super cute dress! And I love the shoes you’re wearing with it too! Super cute for the summertime!

  34. July 23, 2018 / 9:05 am

    Such a cute dress! White is definitely good for summer, it can even make my very pale skin look like it has a bit of colour haha xx

  35. July 23, 2018 / 11:57 am

    White dress is a must in any girl closet. Love how you match it with black furry jacket. So cute and fashionable. You nailed it.

  36. July 23, 2018 / 1:11 pm

    White looks good on so many people, but I feel like I’m so pale it wouldn’t even look remotely good on me. You pull it off so well! You’re gorgeous and I am loving your style.

  37. July 23, 2018 / 4:30 pm

    That’s such a gorgeous dress & you look absolutely amazing! I just bought my first little white dress earlier this summer and I’ve been absolutely in love with it.

    lots of love, Jasmin

    That dress is beautiful, I love the neckline. I agree that a white dress is a summer essential as it’s so light and fresh.

  39. July 23, 2018 / 4:48 pm

    Such a cute dress! I also agree that an LBD is for the winter months and a white dress is for summer. I’d pair this with some trainers and a leather jacket personally!

    I really like that little white dress it’s simple and summ-ish! Accompanied with red and blue for July 4th, pink for a women’s event really it could be changed up for almost any occasion.

  41. July 23, 2018 / 7:19 pm

    White is a fun summer color. Love the style of that particular dress!

    What a beautiful white dress, looks perfect for summer. I agree, white dresses are much lighter in Summer heat.

  44. July 24, 2018 / 11:52 am

    You rock that jacket it looks amazing on you. I would be so nervous about pulling that off myself but you do it so well!

  45. July 24, 2018 / 6:18 pm

    White dresses are so cute. They remind me of how young and innocent we were/are!

  46. July 24, 2018 / 6:49 pm

    That’s such a great dress and you look so amazing in it! It looks nice and light too and with the summer being as hot as it has been here, I love anything light or breathable lol! It’s also something you can really dress down or up depending on the occasion, so versatile. Plus any excuse to go shopping is a good one lol!

  47. July 24, 2018 / 7:20 pm

    I’m not sure I’ve ever worn a white dress in my life. I think I’m just too fair skinned to pull it off.

  48. July 24, 2018 / 8:52 pm

    I have to confess, I do not have a little white dress, but looking at your fab photos I now wish I have one just like that too

  49. July 25, 2018 / 7:04 am

    This dress is so cute girl! I love it!

    I always keep light sweaters and jackets that will layer over a summer dress. It cools down fast here at night

  51. July 26, 2018 / 5:37 pm

    You look gorgeous in that dress! I’m looking for the perfect little white dress haha. And how cute is the bamboo bag?!

  52. July 27, 2018 / 7:18 pm

    You look amazing. I love that bag that you paired the dress with. It’s been a long time since I’ve owned a white dress.
