A must-have for spring break: The LWD

With spring break quickly approaching, we all can’t help but dream about the days when we will be living it up on warm, sunny beaches. However, I’m sure, like me, you are probably asking yourself, “What am I going to wear?” 

Fear not. I give you the LWD, otherwise known as the little white dress.

The LWD was shown up and down the runways for spring as the new little black dress. It is the perfect blank canvas piece that can be styled in numerous ways for an assortment of adorable looks. They come in a variety of textures and patterns, so you’re sure to find one to fit your style. Contrary to popular belief, white can be just as flattering as black. And, of course, it accentuates your tan! Whether you are going to Cancun, Miami, Nassau, Punta Cana or Myrtle Beach, the LWD is a perfect day or night option. Dress it up or down, with beachy wedges or fierce heels, for a guaranteed hot and stylish outfit.

Tips for wearing a LWD…
1. Choose one that fits well
2. Make sure the dress is not too see-through
3. Wear a nude bra and panties
4. Don’t be afraid to pile on accessories!
5. Make sure to have a Stain Stick on hand (accidents happen!)

Here are some ways to wear your LWD …

1. Add an edge
Pair your LWD with a cool leather jacket, heeled booties and tough jewelry for a rocker chic look.

2. Add a pop of neon
Liven up your LWD by wearing a skinny neon belt, fluorescent bangles or colorful sandals. (J. Crew has some great skinny belts in stores now.)

3. Go Greek
Wear your LWD with a pair of gladiator sandals, gold bangles and a braided updo for a look that is chic and not too toga party.

4. French Riviera
For an effortless look ,pair your LWD with espadrilles or wedges and a pair of great sunglasses.

5. Boho-cool
Go for a flowy LWD and pair it with a thick brown belt, lightweight scarf and earthy sandals for a cute, laid-back look. Try a maxi dress if you dare!

6. Au naturel
Let the dress speak for itself and wear it with simple jewelry and nude pumps.

7. Body-con
For a perfect night out option, wear a form-fitting LWD with cage heels.

8. Western cute
Look classic and casual and wear your LWD with a distressed denim jacket and your favorite cowboy boots.

9. Dress it up
Pair your LWD with a fitted blazer, statement necklace, pumps and a clutch for a more sophisticated look.

10. At the pool
Wear a cotton LWD as a cute alternative to shorts with a pair of simple sandals.
