Nothing says "I'm celebrating the summer" more than a whimsical, light, layered, and lace white dress. This season, white has taken over as the ultimate summer staple, and so I would be remiss if I didn't share with you the favorite white dress in my closet. Although the white dress may seem beholden solely to warm temperatures and tan skin, I disagree. When it comes to transitional dressing, there is nothing I like more than a summer dress thrown on over slouchy fall boots. Layer on a sweater, a leather, denim, or motorcycle jacket and you instantly look like a street style icon. Looking for a white dress in all those fabulous end of summer sales? Or even a transitional dress to get you through September? My tip is to choose a 60s silhouette. A swing dress, smock dress shown above, and even a baby doll shape is ideal to pair with tights and booties, soft over the knee boots, or a great jacket. The ideal length is short; above the knee and rising... AND the 60s silhouette was ALL that was seen on the Fall 2014 runway, so you'll be transitioning in trend.
Enjoy this unofficial last week of summer, and again thanks for reading!
