Chic cheat: The little white dress
The summer alternative to the LBD (little black dress) is an altogether more tricky affair. While the point of the LBD is that it can be worn to almost any occasion, the point of the LWD (little white dress) is that it can't.
In fact, most LWDs should be kept for sun holidays or the absolute sunniest days of the year. The dress is diaphanous and little-girly, so balance with a pair of chunky, flat sandals, as seen at Burberry, who paired their short, cutesy white-lace dress for this season with chain-embellished open-toed flats.
This embroidered-cotton dress from Mango, €89.95, is a good imitation of the look - nobody wants to spend Burberry prices on something so transitory.
