The dress of the season: the little white dress

I’ve already blogged about the gorgeous white, lacy Dolce & Gabbana dress which appeared on the cover of Vogue Paris’ April cover, but it seems that this dress is a favourite with editors as it’s scored it’s fourth cover slot! It’s worn by Constance Jablonski on the cover of this month’s Greek Vogue and it has already been seen on Spanish and German Vogue too. I can certainly see the appeal, the LWD should be a wardrobe staple for summer and this particular one is so versatile as it’s both sweet and sexy at the same. I’m not actually a fan of the cover, it’s very summery but Gisele shows the dress off much better on the Vogue Paris cover.

Surprisingly, the high street has been a little slow to pick up on this super dress, I’ve scoured tons of websites and have yet to find something which perfectly captures the essence of the gorgeous D&G version. I’ve found some pretty sweet LWDs, the Topshop Boutique version is probably the closest to the Dolce vesion as it’s sheer with embroidery over the top but my favourite is actually the Monsoon Fusion dress.

    I love white dresses for Summer, they really show off the tan and capture that Virgin Suicides dreamy feel. I wish there were more D&G inspired dresses on the high street although I am loving that Urban Outfitters one you picked out. x

    I saw a hot white dress in the window of Versace today!
