It can be mini, midi or maxi. With transparency, embroidery or just plain. The white dress, which is so well-known for being the bet ensemble for the holidays, has been gaining fresh and super-fashionable versions on the runways of various brands – and fashionistas are already choosing their favorite styles. They may have a rocker, romantic, classic or modern feel. Here, Camila and I opted for white dresses with completely different aesthetics, but following the maximum of lightness and sophistication. She invested in the shape with a closed neckline, but with cuts in the region of the bust and sleeves. To cast off, she added a black leather belt overlay to further mark the waist. As for my look, I chose the long version with cutouts and lace, which plays with transparencies throughout the piece – and is a perfect item to wear on occasions during the day.
In international collections, a series of inspirations full of style, femininity and sophistication. For Chloé’s Spring 2019, designer Natacha Ramsay-Levi combined a fluttering modeling, ruffles and materials in a midi proposition that brings a chic boho vibe. Brandon Maxwell presented the satin white dress that follows the shapes of the body in such a refined and youthful way, with a “cape” effect on the sleeves.
In different proportions, transparency and cuts were the points chosen by Zimmermann and Zadig & Voltaire. While the first worked with geometric shapes centered on the dress and the hemline, the second brought small eyelet details throughout the piece.
Among the creations composed by the lack of cleavage in evidence and with long sleeves, two styles to keep an eye on and plan to have in the wardrobe. That’s because they are versatile and, depending on the styling, they can be worn year-round. Alexander McQueen presented a volume-built piece in the skirt and detachable sleeves, which goes well with both a heavier coturnal boots and with thin, open sandals. In Carolina Herrera, the handmade details were the highlight of the dress, which mixes leaked motifs of varied shapes.
