While the LBD (Little Black Dress) is the ultimate fashion staple, the Little White Dress deserves its own spot in the fashion hall of fame -- at least, in the summer months. This staple gets its best wear in warm weather, so take advantage now before cooler temperatures have you stashing your sundresses.

There are hundreds of cute little white dress styles to choose from and no matter what you choose you'll look fab enjoying the warm weather... while you can. 

How to Style a Little White Dress for Class:

Little white dress outfit idea for daytime -- college outfit idea: White t-shirt shift dress, navy suede backpack, cute rose gold notebook, navy blue tassel earrings, cobalt nail polish, silver slip-on sneakers

Products: Dress - Everlane, Shoes - Nordstrom, Backpack - Saks Off 5th, Notebook - Bloomingdale’s, Earrings - Shopbop, Nail Polish - Macy’s

For class, this white Everlane shift dress is perfect. It finds its calling in an academic setting, as it's lightweight and comfortable, yet appears put-together -- perfect for sitting through drawn out lectures. 

Since fall is soon approaching, let's pair some autumn pieces with our summer dress. This navy suede backpack is the perfect transitional piece. The suede material definitely brings on all the fall feels. 

While our focus is our LWD, we have a major opportunity to allow our accessories, or even a manicure, to stand out, so let's introduce more blue to this look with tassel earrings and a cobalt nail.

Don’t forget your notebook -- remember we want straight A’s this semester! But we don't want any old notebook: This one from Bloomingdales is anything but basic. 

How to Style a Little White Dress for a Night Out:

Little white dress outfit idea for night -- party outfit idea with white t-shirt dress, printed single strap heels, Naked 2 palette for smokey eye, hoop earrings, envelope clutch

Products: Dress - Everlane, Clutch - ShopBop, Heels - Lulu's, Earrings - Revolve, Makeup Palette - Nordstrom 

While this dress has less structure than a typical dress you'd rock for a night out, we can easily make it nighttime-appropriate with our accessories. To keep things cohesive, we're going to continue with navy as our pop of color. 

Our clutch, like our backpack from earlier, has a suede fabric that brings in a fall vibe. Heels are always an option to transform a look, and these bold patterned ones are total statement-makers. Don’t forget to add on a killer pair of earrings to finish off the outfit.
