Well summer is definitely upon us and although the LBD (Little Black Dress) is a timeless go to must-have, this summer is going to be all about the LWD-the Little White Dress. Ms. LisaRaye McCoy boasts a closet full of white clothes, from pants, skirts, and tops to dresses. Her trademark is wearing all white all the time. And I must say, she rocks it well. But honey, a little switch up every now and then ain’t bad for anybody. I mean, it’s not so hot to wear all black all the time either. Add a little color, live a little…but I digress…
Ms. McCoy says, “It’s not a method to the madness. It’s not because it’s religion. It’s because one day on the weekend I went out of town and realized I had all white outfits and they looked so crisp and clean. I said can I do this for a week, a month, a year? It’s been eight or nine years now. I feel like an angel.” So that’s the real reason she is so faithful in her white, just because it looks crisp and clean and she feels like an angel in it. I guess that goes to tell you, wear whatever you want. Wear what makes you feel like an angel, whatever makes you feel good about yourself so that you can live your best, most stylish life…to you. Whether it’s all white, all black, or the whole colorful rainbow.
Understated elegance for the summer will be, however, white on white. It’s for the woman who was born with a good taste gene. Spruce it up with some colorful accessories-turquoise, coral, canary yellow, gold or maybe even a beige/taupe color. All of these bright colors will definitely add the hint of color you need to look like a breath of fresh air on a hot summer day. Or just go traditional with black. Oh and, I know people get all confused about whether or not they are “supposed” to wear white before Memorial Day, well the answer is yes. You CAN wear white before Memorial Day, now I know the holiday has come and gone, but just so ya’ll know for next year. Wear white before Memorial Day and be happy in it.
So rock your white in a little dress, linen pants, a wide-leg jumpsuit, business suit, or long flowy summer dress. I love this dress from Bebe for only $119. It’s great for a Saturday catch up session with the girls at Captain’s Quarters or date night with your man at Eddie Merlot’s. Whatever you choose, please make the right underwear selection!! There is nothing worse than looking sophisticated in a nice dress and mess it up with undergarments that show through. Please select either nude, black, or brown so that they are not visible to the naked eye. Reds and stripes are NOT acceptable!! Thongs are preferable, if your dimples won’t show through. And please don’t rock white if there is a crime scene going on in your pants…Okay, have fun Little White Dress shopping!!
