Replace your LBD with a LWD for summer

Every girl knows how important it is to have a go-to little black dress (LBD) in her wardrobe. With temperatures rising and spending more time outside under the blazing sun, it's definitely time to switch out your LBD for a LWD (little white dress) for summer. Look for this style at your brand name clothing store to get the look for less:

A white-eyelet dress is the perfect way to keep cool at your summer barbeque. Look for a dress made with a high cotton count to help keep you cool. If the eyelet design leaves little to the imagination, make sure to add a slip underneath to act as a barrier between the material and your skin.

Up the ante on your next date night with a pretty, white cocktail dress. You can dress up a spaghetti strap chiffon number for an evening filled with good eats at your favorite restaurant by adding a pair of colorful heels and a bright clutch to your outfit. Tone down the formality of your dress for a night at the carnival with a pair of cute Grecian sandals and a neutral crossbody bag to hold your camera, money and phone while riding the ferris wheel.

Keep in mind that although an LWD is a summer essential, it is a fashion faux pas to wear a white dress to a wedding, so make sure to swap out your LWD with a colored dress for any weddings you'll be attending over the next few months.
