No one can deny the merits of the trusty LBD, but here at Little Spree, we fall time and time again for the white version (the LWD). For the Summer (Summer??) you can’t go far wrong with a gorgeous white dress and a pair of flat tan sandals. And don’t think that a white dress is a no-go if you don’t have a size 8 body to put it in either! It’s all about finding the right style for you. The LWD can be every bit as flattering as its dependable alter ego – it just takes a bit longer to find the perfect one. Here are a few (many of which are now on sale – bonus!) we’ve rounded up that we think are definitely worth a look (for all shapes and sizes)… Oh and size-up – this is definitely not a body-con situation – your LWD should be cool and loose…
Mango, Marje pleated chiffon, Iro broderie anglaise, Mango embroidered smock-style, Isabel Marant Étoile ruffled, The Great billowing (love this!), M&S maxi, Vanessa Bruno prairie (want!), Isabel Marant Étoile denim, French Connection crepe maxi, The Jetset Diaries open-back, Melissa Odabash crochet and voile, Mango lace panelled (this is on my ‘to try on’ list), and Urban Outfitters crochet (great for the beach). And for you gorgeous curvy mamas out there, we love this and this one, both from Mango Violeta.

ps: but having said all that, how gorgeous is this white and black one (just ordered – SC)?
pps: and also remember, a white dress can look so great with a tee/sweater/sweatshirt worn over it – so don’t discount any with spaghetti straps, thinking they are too bare or not possible without a bra.
