The Little White Dress & How To Wear It

If I had to choose only one item of clothing to wear all summer long, it would be the little white dress. Little white dresses are the fabulous opposite of little black dresses, and they are very appropriate for day and night appearances during spring and summer (except for weddings of course).

How to wear a little white dress by Stella Asteria | Fashion & Lifestyle Blogger

Those of you who follow me on Instagram, see me wearing them very regularly, as it’s my go-to. This one from Zadig & Voltaire is my favorite little white dress, as due to the casual style code in Mykonos, I can wear from the beach to work and anything in between with the appropriate styling. Definitely not the type of girl who is afraid to wear the same dress or outfit twice (exhibit A, exhibit B). 🙂

How To Wear A Little White Dress

Quality fabric

The quality of the fabric always matters, but I pay even more attention when it comes to white clothing, as they are less likely to be see-through. Make sure to test it in different lightings to make sure it’s not.

#1 Consider your accessories

Styling a little white dress is like working on a blank canvas. You most probably already have the shoes and purse that go perfectly with your little white dress, and maybe more than one choice.

#2 Keep it simple

While accessories are the key to the final result for any outfit, remember that the beauty of white is in simplicity. You’ll notice that although my accessory choices were bold, I kept them to just a few key pieces.

#3 Add layers

You can play with layers by adding a scarf to keep it dressy (for me it was too hot so I tied it in my bag instead), or add a denim jacket tied around your waist for an edgy touch like I did with this little white dress here.

#4 The power of what’s underneath

Be careful with the undergarments as they are the foundation of an outfit, especially a white one. Choose skin tone underwear instead of white, which can really pop.

#5 Envision a vibe

What kind of outfit are you going for? Could it be an elegant evening look, a sexy date night look, a casual day look, or an edgy look for a girls night out? Let this dictate your choice in dress.

    Oh, Stella, what a lovely post. And those photos are stunning. And your dress is soo dreamy looking, too. My favourite LWD of the 25 is No9 Closet. It’s not fussy and am sure would look rather pretty on.
    Kisses, Jo

    I can’t believe that this time tomorrow I will be in Italy. I am busy packing my case, and still changing my mind as to what to wear in the evenings. I like to be individualistic, but not stick out like a sore thumb. So far, a colourful array of crisp whites, blues and pinks, but no lwd. And, of course, making room for a hot water bottle. Kisses, Jo

    Yes! A LWD is definitely my favourite Summer piece too! It is just so versatile and soooo chic! I love your floaty boho dress here, perfectly accessorised with the little pops of pink!

    Would love to be able to pull off the white dress as well as you, beautiful Stella! Alas, with my ultra pale skin, white is not usually my go-to colour 🙁 I love your LWD from Zadig & Voltaire, it has that boho vibe to it but I see you can dress it up quite easily. I am also obsessed with those earrings! ♥ Hope you are having a fabulous time in Mykonos, dearest
    Sending you love from not so sunny England

    You look so chic in this little white dress, they really are so flattering to wear especially during the Summer months.
    This little LWD is very flattering on you, and like the way you have styled it with the pink Chanel and colourful shoes!

    What a beautiful post.
