Though little black dresses get all the fanfare, we are particularly taken with little white dresses (or LWDs) when the weather warms up. Whether worn with sun-kissed skin at the beach or sneakers at the flower market, there is a certain effortlessness that exudes from a breezy cotton frock.

Case in point: This embroidered Dôen dress ($280; shopdoen.com). Crafted from crinkled gauze and accented with flowing tassels, this number is meant to be worn loose and free. It almost resembles a dress that is found in a far-flung market, so we’ve styled it as such with a gold-plated horn and leather necklace, embellished pom-pom clutch, hand-crocheted rafia wedge sandals, and chic oversized shades. Shop the look, below.
