Dress of the Day: La Petite S*****’s belted stretch linen-blend dress

La Petite S*****’s belted stretch linen-blend dress, £695

Last week, we talked about how white is being touted as a “hot trend” (cringe) for Spring 2013. Bright white dresses aren’t the easiest things in the  world to wear. They’re dramatic. High-maintenance (especially if, like us, you have a fondness for red wine, but a complete inability to drink it without spilling some…). They can make you look a bit like a nurse, or someone from a sci-fi movie.

When it’s done right, though, white can be jaw-droppingly awesome, and we think this dress is a great example of white done right. The key here is in the simplicity. This dress is totally classic, and very “basic” in design, but it’s made so perfectly it just works.

That’s probably why it sold out at Net-a-Porter in less than a day, even although it’s £695. We’re not worried, though: it’s not like we could’ve afforded to buy it, anyway…
