What to Wear with Your Little White Dress Now

Hi Everyone,

Spring has finally come to visit us with temperatures even scheduled to reach 20° next weekend! Wonderful, perfect for getting out that little white dress and really getting into Spring mood. The tricky thing at this time of year though is that despite warmer temperatures there is often still a little chill in the air. Don’t let that stop you from wearing your little white dress though!

Keep reading to find out a few tips for what to wear with your little white dress now!


What to Wear with Your Little White Dress Now

Over the knee boots are perfect for this time of year. They enable us (yes even those of us over 40), to wear shorter dresses and still look great. Potentially wrinkled knees are hidden and no one will register the lack of tan either.

Go for a pair of stretch slimline boots to make your legs look slimmer – always great teamed up with any shorter dress or skirt!

Another favourite staple for early Spring is a short leather jacket. Love going for red to really get the black out of a Spring look. Plus red and white always team up fabulously.

Shop Now:


If over the knee boots are not your thing – why not simply team your little white dress with a pair of black skinny jeans.

This is such an easy outfit and teaming it up with black booties will put added length into your legs…

Shop Now:


To brighten up the black and white look I decided to team this outfit up with a bright green metallic shopper. Handy for hiding any surreptitious purchase too – smile! (available online here)

This white dress is from Esprit.

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. I love your white Dress or better said any white Dress because it is so versatile and you can combine it with any colour lovely

  2. Dear Yvonne. Great tips as always. I had to smile a bit when I read about 40+ women and wearing short dresses. I am over 40 and love wearing short dresses, even though I read again and again that it may be wiser over 40 not to do so anymore…I make sure they are long enough for the classroom and as long as my own teenagers keep giving me compliments I think I am still on the safe side! I am sure you can wear this pretty dress without over the knee boots too. You look very youthful and have an amazing figure! Love, Lieske

    1. Hi Lieske – you MUST keep wearing short dresses – they look amazing on your cute little figure!!!
      As for me – I just need a tan before I wear the cute dress without boots 😉

      Love Yvonne xx

  3. You are utterly chic and fabulous Yvonne!
    I love how you’ve styled this dress…. especially with the OTK boots and the little red jacket.

  4. I really love this post! That first look is so cute! The red leather jacket makes it all pop! I also love the over-the-knee boots idea. I will have to try it. Thanks for linking up with Nicole and I today!
