OOTD: The Little White Dress

Since Audrey Hepburn appeared on the silver screen dressed in that fitted black cocktail dress in Breakfast At Tiffany's, the Little Black Dress (or LBD) has been heralded as the must-have garment for every female's wardrobe. Suitable for all occasions, timelessly elegant and super stylish, the LBD has it all. Well, maybe it's time for the LBD to step aside and let its younger sister, the Little White Dress (or LWD, if you wish) have its moment.

Much like the LBD, in my eyes the simplicity of the LWD oozes elegance and that classic, effortless style that these pieces are so known for. Basic, understated dresses which speak for themselves are the best, let alone incredibly easy to wear.

This Primark number is one which has recently appeared in stores, although like always, it only seems to be in some and not others. I picked this up in the High Wycombe Primark, and am yet to find it anywhere else. I absolutely adore the detail on this dress; it is marked with a subtle geometric pattern which makes it that bit more interesting.

What I love most though is the two-piece style of this dress. It looks as though it is a top and skirt co-ord, but is in fact joined by a sheer fabric which becomes visible at the back. The split-open back is also to die for, and I think makes this dress extremely unique; it's definitely not your average style!

While the dress is quite figure-hugging, it is not unflattering. For me, the length is perfect- I can see myself wearing this loads on nights out! It is also incredibly well made; sometimes with Primark you can see a few dodgy seams or lop-sidedness which evidents why the clothes are so cheap, but this is not one of those pieces.

I teamed this dress with a stone coloured leather jacket I bought from a boutique aaggeesss ago (I can't remember which one, but know it was around the £30 mark). I love the lace detail on this as it makes the jacket really stand out, although am not too keen on the diagonal front zip. A classic pair of black Asos wedges and my trusty black quilted Matalan shoulder bag constitute the main accessories, with smaller details including my *totes adorbs* cat watch, my Great Aunt's necklace, and a chunky aztec style statement ring.

  1. Love this look! I think white dresses look so classy, and they're so delicate and feminine as well. Also love the shoes you've paired with it. I need a pair of black wedges, but I don't suppose ASOS still has them on the site. Will take a look anyway!
