As you've already seen, we're pitting casual-Cali style against Miami maximalism to show two very different takes on chic, summer style. Helping us out are two very different bloggers — L.A.'s Ann Kim of Andy Heart and Brazilian import Martha Graeff of Around in Style. They've already shown their contrasting beach looks — thank you, ladies — but today we're leaving the surf and sand behind for something that would be more at home at your next garden party or patio-cocktail hour.
The LWD (little white dress) is the airy, chic staple of the smart, summer wardrobe. But even if your short, light, all-white favorite is a truly special and stylish piece, you'll still need to add a touch of flair in order to create a look that's 100-percent you.
To demonstrate, we've supplied Graeff and Kim with the same delicious LWD from A|X Armani Exchange along with the same choice accessories to show that a few colorful tweaks can create two totally different looks — even if they do have the same fashionable foundations.
