Summer is tapering off in most parts of the world, although it is going to stay Summery here in Singapore until November! I have really enjoyed this year’s Summer fashion season as much as I do love Fall. So allow me to indulge further in this season’s personal picks for a while more.

As much as I adore vivid colours and prints, there is an air of elegance in the understated style of a simple white dress.

The Little White Dress is a staple in my wardrobe because it is perfect for Singapore’s perennial summer. It can be fun and flirty or it can be minimalist chic like this beauty I have on here. I was on the hunt for a LWD that would easily transition from workwear to a night about town and this dress works very well with a day or evening look.

Admittedly, I am a lot more accustomed to the LBD than I am with the LWD. Infusing some white into the wardrobe has been a refreshing change.

Minimalism does not equate to boring. It simply celebrates simple, clean structured clothing. Which is why I added pops of colour with my pink heels and that statement necklace.

The dress comes with the belt and it is detachable, which comes in handy if or when you’d like to improvise. The neckline is rather deep, even at the back, which I find adds a flirty vibe to this otherwise classy number.

I took some hair inspiration from fellow AP contributor Luanne of Weesha’s World, I am a dud with hairstyles!

Would you consider the LWD more of a Summer staple or would you wear in cooler climates as well?

Hope you’ve enjoyed this post, until next time!

Having struggled with ‘weighty’ issues most of my life, I made the decision to stop hating my body and to embrace it when I turned 30. Curves Become Her is where I talk about plus size fashion, being body positive, encourage female empowerment, and share personal anecdotes. 

I am a first generation Singaporean with Indian origins. My academic background is in psychology and psychotherapy. I consider myself a writer, feminist, and activist aside from being a plus size blogger.

    Thank you for this post! I used to have a lovely LWD that I wore all the time. Generally, I buy dresses to wear at weddings, so I’ve let the LWD fall to the wayside.
    I hadn’t realized a classic white dress is missing it from my wardrobe.
