Below I’m going to share with you how to wear a white dress for brunch, while transitioning it perfectly for spring, as well as offer you the opportunity to join Nubry at the Escada lunch we’re hosting later this week at Neiman Marcus. Many ladies tend to save their white eyelet and babydoll dresses for pool coverups or Memorial Day Weekend festivities, and brides-to-be reserve their sheath white dresses for the bridal shower; however, this doesn’t have to be the case. A white dress has a sophisticated, modern look – especially when it’s a sheath, shift, or peplum dress – and because of this, a white dress should be your go-to dress for brunch.
The white dress I’m wearing below is from Escada Spring 2013 collection (shop Escada here and white dresses here). See how Gretchen wears white pants here. Similar to the dresses that Victoria Beckham wears so often and comparable to the dresses Jackie O would have worn, this figure-hugging, white Escada dress is the perfect pick for brunch at ritzy places like La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, CA. My dress is layered with a black tweed jacket, also by Escada Spring 2013, and I’ve accessorized my outfit with Alexis Bittar gold accented bangles and gold cocktail ring (shop Alexis Bittar jewelry here) and a metallic gold DVF “Carolina” Lips clutch. I opted for an edgier bootie sandal in white, over the classic pump (shop B Brian Atwood Linscott Mesh-inset peep toe). Note: There is no reason to introduce color into this outfit since the color palette I’ve built upon is black and white – a huge spring 2013 trend. If my jacket had been a colored blazer, then a bright colored shoe or purse would have worked well.
