The Little White Dress
Everyone's heard of the Little Black Dress. You imagine Audrey Hepburn's character Holly Golightley in Breakfast in Tiffany's. It's simple, chic, something you can just thrown on, and it also fits like a glove. Well, there's a new "it" piece of clothing and it's the little white dress.
Perfect for low key and casual weddings, it's something that you as a bride can wear again and again and be reminded of your wedding magic. It's also fantastic for bridesmaids if you decide to follow the Kate-and-Pippa trend or if you choose to don a colored wedding dress.
The little white dress is usually tea length or shorter and has a hundred different looks and feels. For a retro-feel, a beaded white dress with cap sleeves is just right. However, you can go bohemian with a shift dress, or evoke a European style with an effortless wrap dress. You can even go completely outside the box with a simple floor length number.
The key thing about the little white dress (and what it shares with the little black dress) is that it celebrates you as a woman. It's not about current trends or must haves or themes, it's about looking fabulous.
