The white dress. An epitome of summer elegance.
You just cannot be without it whether you find yourself in a city, planning a holiday or dancing till dawn under the starlit sky. Whatever the situation, the little white dress is definitely one of the wardrobe must-haves.
This little darling isn’t just the light reflector on a hot summer day, but a statement of femininity, romance, purity, freshness and luxury.
Choosing the one may be a challenge, but fortunately for us, designers got it all covered. Sporty and athletic, prim and proper, bohemian and lady-like. Mini and maxi. Lace and jacquard. Silks, organza, cottons and linens.
You pick the dress that tells your story. And then start your summer journey in style. Best accessory to compliment your LWD? A touch of tan, of course.
