Move over, LBD, the Little White Dress is taking over for spring. 

Take notes of how Topshop styled this dress because we wholeheartedly approve. 

This perfect dress has criss-cross straps that take it to the next level. 

This fun print is an instant mood booster, and the midi length makes is extremely practical for work. 

If this doesn't scream summer picnic, I don't know what does. 

Pair this easy-breezy dress with flat sandals and a wide-brim hat and you're ready to conquer spring. 

Team this dress with a wicker or straw bag and you've got yourself a very chic look.
