How and where to buy?
Look out Little Black Dress, there is a new player on the scene! Traditionally, ladies have been taught to have at least one of these in their closet at all times. It was just Fashion Basics 101. The black dress was always the classic party dress, and white was reserved for weddings, baptisms, Easter, and pretty much anything that happens in a church. However, women around the globe are finally seeing the Little White Dress as more than just holy formal wear. White is happy, fun, bright and excellent. It goes with everything, and as white has gained in popularity, top designers have spun the little white dress into a wide variety of elegant styles.White is no stranger to the spotlight, either. Celebrities from Taylor Swift and Beyoncé, to Emma Watson and Angelina Jolie have been strutting red carpets in little white party dresses. You don’t have to have a model’s figure or a private designer to look great in white, though. Every hair color stands out beautifully against white, which actually draws the eyes up to your face. Of course, tanned skin looks fabulous in every color, but even those of us with lighter complexions look more tanned in comparison to a bright white dress. As for the long held belief that black slims you, I can honestly say that as a plus sized woman, it’s all about the cut, not the color.
If you’re thinking about taking a little white party dress out on the town, you can do it without breaking the bank. NBD makes the Whoops Fit & Flare Dress which comes home for under $100, as does the AX Paris Boobtube Kick Out Dress. Both of those flirty frocks are short and fun, without being too revealing. If your willing to spend a bit more, you can try on the Scalope Eyelet Dress from Calvin Klein. It’s knee length, features wide shoulder straps, and comes in plus sizes. Best of all, it’s still under $200. Whether you’re getting together with the girls, or going out on a date, you’ll be sure to stand out in any of these little white dresses!
