Meet your new wardrobe hero, the item that you will wonder how you lived without, the one that’s almost the opposite of that other perennial, the LBD. The white maxi shirt dress is a one-piece way to do smart, modern, simple, statement, feminine, puritanical… The list goes on, so that your shopping list doesn’t have to. Crisp and clean, it will bring a breath of fresh air to your look whether you take your cue from Gabriela Hearst and Petar Petrov and reach for an office-appropriate, classic-with-a-twist design, or turn to Jil Sander or Valentino for something more oversized and bold. Tanned bare legs and leather sandals are the obvious – and rightly so – pairing, but your WMSD will look equally good worn with ankle boots and tweedy winter coats. White is an all-weather option now, you know.
