It’s the hottest new must-have of the season. It’s suited to Summer, can work in the day or night, and it flaunts that sun kissed skin you’ve achieved in the hotter days. If you don’t have yours already, make sure you find your perfect LWD (Little White Dress).
Traditionally the colour that attracts the least heat, white is the perfect shade for the newest addition to your wardrobe. Check out some of our LWD inspiration and shop some of our favourite white dress styles on SurfStitch.
What to wear them with? For a casual day look, try some Birkenstocks or even a pair of Vans, and for a night time look try strappy sandals and a pale handbag or clutch.
Choose your white Summer staple day dress and make sure it’s comfortable, flattering and feminine!

My favourite look for my current long weekend when I spent the days on the sandy beaches and the afternoons in my white sundress with cocktail in hand. White is the colour of the season as it brightens up any outfit and looks great with a healthy tan! Carry a large bag for all your essentials and a cute straw hat and you’re set.
