The SWD

17

It’s the beginning of summer for some and some of you are right in the middle of it. Let’s forget the trends and go back to the basics, shall we?

Yep, am talking about the SWD: Summer White Dress. It is must have in every wardrobe. And the best part about the SWD is that you can create many looks with just this basic. Pair yours with gladiators (a la Katrina) for a uber casual look or wedges (a la Barbara) for a more glam one. Finish off with a denim jacket or a colorful cardigan to stay warm at nights. The possibilites are endless. With this one item in your wardrobe, we guarantee you, summer won’t be so “cruel”. :) (Yep, I’ve got Bananarama in my head right now.)

  1. Deepika looks the best hands down!!
    And thats because she’s the only one who looks natural in it. She’s the perfect age to wear this dress, the other three are just wanna bees! Plus, she looks very natural, like a college going girl, and the rest have lots of makeup on!
    i;m going for the all-natural look, and thats why Deepika!!!

  2. its called the Little White Dress(LWD). on today’s show, the fashion stylist called it just that. and she said yes the wardrobe staple the LBD(Little Black Dress) has now been converted to LWD!

    • I am sure P&P know that it’s famously called LWD,but just like anything else that you get here they always add a lil tadka to the posts :) Isn’t that why we love this site?

      Btw,like all versions,it’s hard to go wrong with this summery dress.Esp,loved Aish,she looks good(and relaxed) after a long time.

    • exactly! Given how closely they follow the Fug girls and every Hollywood style blog, this effort to sound different falls completely flat. Especially when in India it’s almost summer-ish all year around. Tacky copy writing again.

  3. I absolutely loathe Aishwarya’s dress. Looks like she forgot the salwar! But seriously, awkward length, horrendous shoes and earrings, and a nail colour that dates from the 1990s.
    Like the Katrina’s look the best- laidback with nice shoes :)

    • I would try Mango, French Connection. I hear Zara is opening up too. You might also want to check out AND (by Anita Dongre).

  6. Katrina’s and Barbara’s outfits look like camisoles / singlets you would wear under a LWD!

    Deepika wins this one by a mile!

  8. really? and no words of advice for Aishwarya? She looks again like she’s trying too hard. So tired of her.
