While the LBD is a timeless wardrobe staple, summer calls for something lighter and brighter, namely the little white dress. Stars like Diane Kruger and Angelina Jolie are on board with the style, and both have stepped out recently looking uber-chic in pale party frocks.
Not just great for showing off a (faux) tan, bright white is super flattering against pale complexions that can be washed out by darker colours. Versatile too, it isn't hard to make the fresh shade feel daytime appropriate—simply slip into flat sandals or sneakers and swing one of this season's rustic basket bags.
Below we've rounded up five of our favourite styles—shop them while the summer sun is still shining!
