By now your summer wardrobe should be in full swing, and even if the weather isn't quite as accommodating as we would like, your whites should be front & center (paired with a little jacket, or bright knits). White has also been a very popular celebrity trend, if we have profiled one white lace dress on the celebrity edition, we have profiled twenty! It has been the trend that keeps on giving.
If you work in an office, white lace may not really be your thing, but there are plenty of white dresses that look great for the workplace. My favorite right now is the minimalist trend, something chic and sleek, with few ruffles and no embellishment. Paired with statement pumps and a little jacket, you will be dressed perfectly appropriate for meetings - later in the evening you can lose the jacket and give it a kick with some gold jewelry.
It's those evening events and afternoon parties where you can indulge your love of white lace - and don't forget a very on-trend alternative to lace is Broderie Anglaise - there are some terrific examples of this traditional needlework to be found this season. Since weekend is where anything goes, you can have fun mixing your white dresses with funky accessories, fabulous not-appropriate-for-work-shoes or even some sheer treats!
