Trend-Spotting: Little White Dress
Check the bevy of beauties featured in today’s Trend-Spotting: Gwyneth Paltrow, Kim Kardashian, Michelle Williams, and Camilla Belle. This glam and gorgeous quartet of style stars work several variations of the little white dress with seemingly complete ease. And even though you may not have your own personal stylist, replicating your favourite star’s style isn’t really that hard (all you have to do is stomach the cost of a Monique Lhuillier cut-out dress, *gulp*). What can prove difficult is finding the right shade of white for your complexion, and the right white dress for your shape.
If dressing in white — in the winter months, no less — puts you in a panic, take heart and consider these simple rules:
- Snow white wears best on women with tanned skin and darker hair; winter white and ivory wear best on women of a fair complexion.
- Remember: Blue eyes or brown, wear white on the town; green eyes, not blue? It’s ivory for you.
- Keep the look soft by accoutring your little white dress with a neutral-coloured clutch and shoes.
- Jewelry should be understated: Wear simple earrings and one necklace or bracelet (not both).
