Selena Gomez works the Little White Dress trend

Selena Gomez works the Little White Dress trend

The little white dress could be set to replace the little black dress as every girl's wardrobe must have. Even some of our newest style icons Selena Gomez and Michelle Obama have been favouring white to make an impact.

We know you love your LBD's but sometimes a girl needs something different and a LWD will draw more attention in a room full of black dresses. White emphasises a tan so you'll look great and not need to slap on as much St Tropez before a night out.

Don't take our word for it though, the celebrities are loving the white stuff now. Everyone from Hollywood's Chloe Sevigny and Ginnifer Goodwin to our own Nicola Roberts have been sporting Springs coolest shade and designers Versace, Balmain and Alexander Wang have used little white dresses in their shows.

Our current style crush Selena Gomez shows how you can keep a LWD looking young with silver jewellery and tousled curls that she debuted at the High School Musical 3 premiere.

Ginnifer Goodwin worked a host of trends in the tiered Camilla and Marc dress she wore to the premiere of the third season of Big Love. She ticks the white, lace, monochrome and asymmetrical look and looks great.

She keeps the look from been too demure with her vampy make up.

The little white dress looks perfect with leg lengthening nude heels and a stack of bangles. You can keep it girly with pearl jewellery or give the look an edgy style with gold or silver jewellery. If you're not keen to flash the flesh pop on a pair of opaque black tights and work the classic monochrome look.

If you want to try the tiered look try this French Connection dress, £110. For more of a vintage look we love this lace dress, £45 from Lipsy. Finally for a Grecian take on the colour we love this Boohoo dress, £25, with twisted straps.

French Connection dress, £110; Lipsy dress, £45; Boohoo dress, £20.
