My closet is full of color, solids and patterns alike. I have a keen awareness of which colors look best on me (red and black) and what colors I should avoid wearing too often (gray and purple).
But little did I know my closet was missing a dose of an essential shade up until last week when a gift arrived in my mailbox. Wrapped inside the box was a little white dress. This is not nearly identical to a little black dress, which stereotypically refers to a knee-skimming sheath. Instead, the little white dress (LWD) is for adventures at garden picnics, backyard butterfly chases, and late afternoon beach strolls. The dress looks best in a bright white hue, possibly with eyelet detailing or a sweetheart neckline. If you are feeling extra trendy, it will look beautiful with wedges and a wide-brimmed sun-hat, maybe even a piece of turquoise jewelry. Purchase one of these and it will make your summer days that much sunnier.
