Move over, LBD — this is the season of the LWD. Amidst the bursts of vivid color that bring spring to life, the fresh brightness of white refuses to be overlooked in women’s fashion. White is a staple, showing up this season in crisp blouses, stretchy pants and leg-baring lacy dresses. Caution: All-white ensembles tend to go flat, and a head-to-toe whiteout can be jarring. So choose one or two pieces to anchor your ensemble, balancing them with colored or metallic jewelry and accessories.
