This trend is white hot!
In a season where the spotlight has been on bold colors, floral prints, and statement stripes, one piece remains the undeniable must-have for summer—the white dress.
Year after year, as soon as the weather warms up we’ve seen the LWD reign on the red carpet, at the beach, and just about anywhere else the style-savvy can be found, and 2017 has been no exception.

No doubt inspired by looks on S/S 2017 runways such as Tibi, Rag & Bone, and Banana Republic, A-listers like Selena Gomez, Emma Watson, Demi Lovato, and countless other celebrities have been spotted in white frocks this season. Two of our favorites, Dove Cameron and Sophia Carson, killed it on the Radio Disney Music Awards red carpet in frocks by The 2nd Skin and Marc Jacobs, respectively, and then Carson changed into another LWD to host. And Rihanna is quickly becoming the queen of the LWD, dressing hers up with heels or down with baseball caps and sneakers.

Want to try the trend? You don’t have to be a celebrity to rock this look; there’s an LWD for every figure and every taste. Choose from crocheted, lacy, off-the-shoulder, one-shoulder, maxi, midi, mini, body con, or beachy—there are literally tons of options out there, so it won’t be hard to get your mitts on a white dress this season. And just like a blank canvas, you can totally make an LWD your own—dress it up or down, with as many or as few accessories as you choose. A few cute suggestions: pull your hair up into a ponytail and slip into a pair of Chuck Taylors; glam it up with layers of gold jewelry; or top it with a denim jacket and add colorful fringe sandals.
