We’ve all been there–stuck outside in 100 degree heat in a fabulous silk outfit which is now sticking to our bodies, while our mascara melts off our lashes–not a good look.

To stay cool, be smart about the outfit you put together. Simply put, there is no better staple to acquire then a little white dress, as proven by Olivia Palermo‘s (pictured above, left) casual summer ensemble, and the LWD Victoria Beckham sent down her spring/summer runway (pictured above, right).

You can pick a delicate eyelet made for the Hamptons, or try a sleek trapeze shape, perfect for a city stroll. Either way the LWD is forever a classic well worth spending a drop more! You can justify it by recycling it next summer by simply changing up your accessories. Which brings us to #howtowearit this year – keep the look current by pairing with clean accessories in silver, black, or red. Or if you want to really make statement go monochromatic with a white sandal and pedicure. Just remember the Tide stick!
