Why every woman needs a white dress

Dress - Rusty (The Iconic)
Shoes - ASOS
Inspiration - Cecilie Bahnsen Copenhagen Fall 2017

Everyone always talks about the little black dress or the LBD but perhaps the most underrated item in a women’s closet is its fairer cousin – the perfect white dress.

Your white dress is the perfect summer pick-me-up.

Beach parties? Check.

Long weekend brunches? Check

Picnics? Check.

And, let’s talk about versatility for a second. In summer, it’s your perfect take-me-from-the-beach-to-the-city dress. In winter, throw on a funky leather jacket and some boots and you’re ready to hit town -- or the office.

While the ideal black dress will transform your figure into a slimmer, classier and more Chanel-esque version of yourself, its white counterpart will instantly add a youthful vibe, at every age.

The white dress is also more personal and I don’t mean this in a matrimonial sense. Black is perfect for hiding flaws and suits almost everyone so it’s easier to experiment with and go out of your comfort zone. But while white dresses can be a little less forgiving, this makes them the perfect choice to show off your own taste and celebrate your body, at every size and shape.

Granted, you need to pick a style that’s flattering for you, but that’s what makes the white dress the perfect embodiment of you. Whether you go for a bohemian maxi, a short embroidered version, maybe a ruffled mini, or a more elegant wrap dress, pick the one that looks best on you and own it. It is what you will wear when you want your personality to shine and not hide behind the perfect preened version that you think you should be.

So here’s to the white dress, the one that makes you feel like it was made for just for you!
