Spring's Blank Slate

It's ironic that at a time when all the magazines are screaming color and all the stores have special showcases of brights, that I -- a color queen -- would be so excited about white. With so much neon and so many patterns and so many bold accessories being on trend all at once, I feel white provides a calming tie to what could be a very noisy, Salvador Dali sort of look. In case you're craving white dresses after last week's style post, here's a helping of blank slates to pile your trends on. (And they're almost all cotton, so you can clean them with Oxi or bleach in the event of living.)

Top: full-skirted shirt dress, Lauren by Ralph Lauren at Nordstrom $158
cotton kimono sleeve dress, H&M $17.95
pleated dress, Adrianna Papell at Nordstrom $178
Bottom: loose cotton frock, J. Crew $69.50
t-shirt dress, Target $18
bra-top maxi sundress, Victoria's Secret $88
textured cotton sheath dress, Calvin Klein at Nordstrom $128

as much as i love the white dress trend and found a perfect one @ h&m that i loved to pieces, i returned it because they are just so much work and it didn't have washing instructions. i suppose i'll have to wait around for the right cotton one maybe? or my wedding dress ha

I've had a white cotton sundress for years. It even had tomato sauce splattered on it at one point, but it's always cleaned up nice. Fabric choice is very important with white dresses.
