little white dresses for spring & summer events
Davids Bridal Short Sequin V-Neck DressIf there’s one blog post request I’ve received most frequently over the last few months, it’s been for little white dress (lwd) recommendations! I promise I haven’t been ignoring you guys… Just was waiting for the weather to warm up a bit! 🙂

Y’all know that white dresses are no stranger to my closet. I’d much rather wear a bright color or a light neutral shade over black any day of the week. I know, that’s not very “New York” of me, but I think it’s obvious I’ve never really fit the typical Manhattan style mold. Needless to say, I’m really looking forward to incorporating more white into my wardrobe, especially now that spring and a few pre-wedding festivities are on the horizon!

I took advantage of the bare leg temperatures we had in New York last week and pulled on two new lwds I found at David’s Bridal. If you’re on the hunt for stylish, yet affordable white cocktail dresses I highly recommend checking out their selection! It can be a struggle finding good white dresses because many stores will only have a small number of styles, plus if you’re shopping online it’s nearly impossible to tell if the fabric is actually opaque.

Well I tested the two dresses you see here and I can fully attest that no one will be seeing your underwear if you decide to wear one of these to your rehearsal dinner, bridal shower or grad ceremony 😛

This short sequin v-neck dress is my favorite out of all the ones I tried on at the store! I didn’t think I’d ever be into a white dress with sequins, but the embellishments on this one are incredibly subtle and would work great even for daytime. I’m also obsessed with the v neck open back and sheer flutter sleeves. Bonus points that the length hits just above the knee too!

The vintage vibes of this tiered lace dress totally hooked me! I immediately fell in love with the high neckline. How pretty is the back too? It fits like a glove and is not too short, making it perfect to wear for special occasions with family.

My Aunt Jen has already started planning mine for this September (hopefully the weekend before my birthday!) so I still have some time to decide, but I’m already feeling so excited!

In formal gatherings such as business cocktail, luncheon or a meeting with clients, short white formal dresses are sure to make lasting impressions.

How to accessorize

The right accessories bring out the elegance and innocence associated to the white short dresses. Again when choosing the accessories one needs to identify whether the occasion is a casual or formal one. Here are some tips and guidelines in choosing the right accessories.

  • White goes well with black

To break the monotony of the bright color and through in the vintage feel of short white dresses, a black hat or gloves are included in the outfit. The hat can be white with a black ribbon or vice versa depending on the individual.

  • Jewelry

Dresses tend to emphasize the neckline, making one feels a bit awkward especially if not used to such. A necklace takes care of that void left by the dress’ neck line. The size varies depending on the occasion and also the type of necklace. A simple pearl necklace is best for formal events while beaded or metallic chain working best for a night out.

  • Get creative

For those who want to beat the monotony of white and stand out in an event, creativity has to be pumped in. Short white dresses can be worn with a leather jacket and black jeans to bring out a youthful look. Adding these clothing items emphasizes the sexiness of the outfit and drastically changes how the dress looks and feels.
