With 3 months of summer and wearing that Aussie summer tan, white seems to be the most fitting color for Aussie women. Little white dresses or LWDs have emerged to be a fashion surprise as more and more designers and celebrities preferring this new and fresher look. These LWDs are also very versatile and stylish. The great thing about them is you hardly need any accessories to compliment the wardrobe. You are after all, going for that virginal and pure look. Putting on too much accessories will not do for it will only clutter and not enhance your outfit. White speaks loudly for itself.
Fairly recently we have seen a wave of celebrities donning this new and fresher look. We have seen a host of celebrities from young women like Hayden Panettiere and Mischa Barton to fashion icons like Cameron Diaz and Demi Moore with their varying versions of the little white dress. The runways also capitalize on this new fashion trend, hoping to create another fashion staple like Coco Chanel’s little black dress in the 1920s.
Although, fashion trends are in constant change, some articles of clothing do manage to stay in style through the years. Nearly all women own a little black dress, which can be worn in almost any occasion. Black is “in” for nearly a century now. It was actually the brainchild of Coco Chanel, but it was the fashion icon, Audrey Hepburn, who gave it the much needed hype by making the LBD her wardrobe staple. After almost a century, the waif-like look of Audrey Hepburn and her little black ensemble has been copied, accessorized and modernized by many fashion designers and various celebrities. Black has its many advantages perhaps its greatest attribute is that it makes you look slimmer. Moreover, there is no need to don uncomfortable and barely-there underwear. It is most practical as well for it can disguise any stubborn spots or stains from your previous engagement, where your dinner accidentally landed on your frock. Truly, the LBD has established itself in the fashion industry as an item that has stood the test of time.
However, nowadays more celebrities and designers have set aside their LBDs, not thrown mind you, to experiment on little white dresses. These LWDs are not only relegated to summer wear along with floral dresses, but have established itself as fashionable for various occasions. Local designers like Sass and Bride, Willow and Gail Sorronda have their beautiful LWDs as part of their new clothing line. There are also many new and upcoming designers capitalizing on this new trend, where you can find great looking LWDs, some that are body-hugging to show off your curves and some quite loose since white can add a few inches to your frame so it would be wise to go for comfort and avoid looking wider than your actual frame. In addition, you also need to be extra careful with your choice of underwear and in sipping your favorite red wine. True, there are some sacrifices for the sake of beauty in donning your LWDs, but women in general have accepted and adapted winningly to this fact that it hardly seem a task at all.
Fashion trends are forever evolving every minute that you can hardly keep up with it. Thus, it would be wise and practical to invest on a few articles that will not go out of style. Along with your LBD, it would be great to complete your wardrobe with a little white dress that fits your frame perfectly.
