Dress: Castle Black | Shoes: JustFab

Everyone's always showing love to the ever-popular LBD, but when it comes to key wardrobe pieces for the summer, our go-to just doesn't cut it. 

With all the boat parties and All-White events (thanks a lot, Puff Daddy) I get invited to in the summer, I'm always on the hunt for the perfect LWD; that's Little White Dress to you. 

When it comes to finding the perfect LWD, there are 2 words that immediately some to mind: Ethereal and Sophisticated. In my opinion, the All-White aesthetic is so delicate and light, it calls for a different approach to sexy. I always look to fabrics that are literally delicate and light, such as lace, silk, satin and cotton. In this case, satin was it.

This silky, double-lined satin slip dress is the epitome of summertime sexiness. In terms of cut and style, it's a pretty simple spaghetti-strap dress with a medium V at both the front and back. In actually, this is probably the sexiest dress I own. The light fabric feels great against the skin, and keeps you cool. It's also extremely comfortable, like wearing a loose, long tank all day.

When choosing a slip dress, fit is everything. I almost sized up with this one, and boy am I glad I didn't. The goal is to find a dress that fits looser on the top and around the waist area, but a bit tighter at the hip, then loose again at the bottom. You want your curves to be slightly visible, but elusive at the same time. 

What could possible go better with a sexy, slip dress than a sexy, strappy sandal? Remember, delicate and feminine! So a minimalist sandal or something with skinny straps and tassels are key! These strappy sandals are to die for, and they come in blue and yellow! You wouldn't believe the price, even if I told you...so I linked them ;)
