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!

Sheer and mesh fabrics are currently trending on my radar as not only do they add a little touch of sexiness to your outfit they are very breezy in this summer heat. Whether you want a head to toe sheer look or just a hint of it in the back or arms sheer is a versatile and easy trend that anyone can interpret in their individual way.
However, take note: sheer can look like lingerie! So don’t wear a sheer slip and pair it with your lacy black bra and undies underneath because you will end up being the topic of every by-standers conversation and looking like you should still be in bed! Instead, wear a bralette underneath (we’re loving the new One Teaspoon) or opt for a piece that isn’t sheer across the bust. This trend is sexy, effortless and oh so cool so rock it in your own way because we’re loving it here at SurfStitch HQ!

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.
