Maggy London’s 2015 Summer Look book can best be descried as inspiring. With a collection of emerging floral prints contrasting from a classic fit & flare style perfect for an afternoon of play. The LWD better known as “The Little White Dress” a style in current years that doesn’t abide by the rudimentary rule, “no white after labor day” there’s no surprise that this jacquard textured cocktail dress displays such poise. With an embellished jeweled neckline displaying rhinestones and pearls offering a touch of modern appeal yet conveying playful style.The Little White Dress is an effective way to differentiate one among others, as many stay within a typical color palate of gemstone hues. Rarely do women visualize white as an investment, what many are missing is the versatility it possesses for all skin tones. A preferred fabric choice I’d recommend would be jacquard, as it applies to all weaves creating a lift, displaying a soft yet draping appearance. With a fabric that is commonly mistaken with damask, Maggy London produces a variety of styles, which in return presents a design that is fluid and precise as the designer itself.Embrace the versatility of Maggy London and arrive in style this Summer by viewing new arrivals daily here.
