No summer wardrobe is complete without a crisp, classic little white dress. Much like its dark-hued cousin (i.e., the LBD), the LWD acts as a blank canvas from which to build the rest of your outfit. In other words, there's a lot of room to let your creative side shine in terms of styling. If you're searching for an easy yet impactful way to dress up your favorite white mini, midi, or maxi, look no further than Jessica Alba's Salvatore Ferragamo bag — the small but mighty accessory that pops against an ivory base.
Alba has been hitting the event circuit more than usual as of late, serving up a major dose of outfit inspiration with each new outing. On June 22, the actor attended an event in Rome for the launch of her Honest Beauty line at Douglas Beauty Store — and she looked the epitome of summertime chic.
For the Fri. outing, Alba wore a romantic Self-Portrait number cut from an elegant ivory taffeta. The tea-length frock features voluminous, off-the-shoulder puff sleeves and a single shoulder strap for added dimension. The actor opted for just a few standout accessories, including large diamond earrings, brown platform pumps (the actor's go-to shoe of choice), and last but certainly not least, an ultra-mini Salvatore Ferragamo box bag rendered in this season's most popular color trend: a can't-miss slime green.
Color aside, Alba's poppy Ferragamo purse, dubbed the Boxyz Bag, is right in line with 2019's much-talked about micro-bag trend — styles just big enough to hold your daytime essentials, including keys, wallet, phone, and lipstick. The actor's find is certainly a bit bigger than some that have hit the fashion scene this season (looking at you, mini Jacquemus), but still has that covetable compact shape.
Although you might think you have to pile on the accessories when it comes to dressing up an LWD, Alba's latest ensemble proves the styling power of just a few small but mighty additions.
