The LBD versus LWD: which do you prefer?

We’ve all heard it before. There’s nothing more versatile in a closet than the little black dress. You can never go wrong with an LBD and some good accessories. Though each dress shown above had a similar silhouette, their individual styles came out with some smart uses of belts, layered necklaces and some sweet headwear.

Then again, there’s the LWD, also known as the little white dress. I think this is the summer’s equivalent to the LBD. Are these abbreviations making your head spin yet? Above, a simple ponytail, shades and a belt ties it all together.

What about you? Are you more of a black dress or white dress lady in the summer months? What about year-round?
