Having a LBD (little black dress) is an unwritten rule for one’s capsule wardrobe. From time to time, there is a need to have one on hand that is appropriate as well as fashion-forward. Another staple that exists, though at times is often forgotten, is the FWD…the fabulous white dress.
Grad season and family photo sessions at the beach are upon us. The need for a crisp white number that hits every fashion high note is imperative. Per usual, our buyers are ahead of you.
Options for a white dress that suits the present but withstands the test of time is what e.Allen has in mind when at market. Let’s look at some of our favorites of the season….
- The Tailored Classic: Monrow nailed it with the Poplin Maxi. The tiered bottom of this dress is a subtle addition to it’s overall simplicity. Topped with a denim jacket for fall or standing on it’s own with a neutral sandal for now, this dress can be worn now as well as into seasons to come. The Marlena by MISA is a crisp, traditional show-stopper as well. While this brand typically is known for florals and color-heavy patterns, white can now be added to MISA’s rave reviews!
- Effortless Boho Chic: Xierena’s balloon sleeve and smocking detail at the bustline make the Chiara dress super special. Paired with flats for everyday, casual wear or elevated with a platform, this dress can be as originally-worn as needed. S’edge’s Lilou is another white number carrying the peasant vibe. The shorter length makes it a great option for younger women for sure.
- Summer Lovin‘: Get those toes in the sand…and look good doing it! While French Connection’s Appelona Anglaise’s dress can’t be worn during winter months, the style is SO very fashion-forward and the details are superb. The midi length makes it suitable for almost any age and the fabric is super breathable for the heat. Made out of double cotton gauze, the Etta is a summer staple. With a slight rope tie waist, your figure will be slightly highlighted, yet your overall feel super comfortable.
