How To Style The Little White Dress

How to style LWD blog post

The little white dress is promptly becoming a style staple in everyone's wardrobe. This summer they seem to have taken over the high street as I see them absolutely everywhere; from shop windows to online shops. I don't really have that much black in my wardrobe as I like to keep my style bright and fun. I admit that I don't own a little black dress {I know!!} but the little white dress is definitely a piece that I can get on board with. I could've kept this look simple and classic but if you're a long time reader of ClionaHill.com then you'll know that my style is all about statement pieces and the little details.

   1. Choosing The Right Dress   


When I stumbled upon this dress on Missguided I knew I just had to buy it and if you follow me on Snapchat {username: clionahill} then you'll know that this dress was the culprit that motivated a mammoth haul *wink wink* I fell in love with the intricate lace and the peplum detail is a nice feature too. Speaking of peplum, I've wanted to get a dress in that style for what seems like forever so I was excited but also apprehensive as to how it would look on. But I needn't have feared because it looks well on.

Top Tip: Choose a versatile dress that will bring you from Summer to Winter. I usually stay away from light summer dresses as much as possible because we just don't get the weather for them in Ireland. You'll get a lot more wear out of a dress that can be worn during all of the seasons so you can justify your sneaky purchase ;-)

   2. Add A Splash Of Colour   


If you read my 3 fashion tips for Irish/Uk Summers blog post then you'll you know that I'm a fan of wearing bright colours. My style is most definitely not classic or minimalistic; I like to have fun with my style by adding colour and texture. A statement jacket {outfit post} is my favourite way to make an outfit more interesting and there are some beautiful pink and purple jackets/cardigans on the high street at the moment. I have my eye on a few of the bomber jackets down below ;-)

Top Tip: Pink and purple shades look the best with a simple white dress in my opinion and they look particularly great with brunette hair!

   3. Rose Gold Details   


You all probably know from my Instagram that I am rose gold obsessed: From makeup packaging to jewellery to homeware! Adding a few rose gold pieces to an all white outfit is a simple way of adding subtle colour. The rose-gold pinky hue looks really well against white and I think the jewellery stands out when it's paired with white.

Top Tip: You don't need expensive pieces of jewellery as there are loads of beautiful rose-gold pieces on the high street that are very affordable these days. My watch is from Parfois and that's where I get all of my watches from as they're affordable but very good quality.

   4. Tan Shoes   


A pair of tan shoes completes the look well and contrasts against the white which I think adds a lovely detail to the outfit. Mine were cheap from Penneys but sadly they were not cheerful. They're currently in the bin as they cut into my ankles leaving a nice big cut - The joys! Next summer I'll definitely invest in a good pair of plain tan pumps but for now, I'll stick to my Zara espadrilles from this outfit post and when the Autumn comes {not long now - Eep! Hello cosy nights in, oversized jumpers and pumpkin scented candles.....} I'll switch to my Chelsea boots which you can have a peep at in this autumnal outfit post.

Top Tip: You can trade your tan sandals or pumps for a nice pair of tan ankle or Chelsea boots - Paired with a cream or stone-coloured jacket would look lovely with your little white dress!
