Utility jacket + LWD

Who What Wear styling tip #2: "Transition a LWD with an army jacket."

Okay, pretty basic common knowledge. White lace dress plus army-style jacket, I got it. Now I'm good for summer.

All sarcasm aside, this is a great look. I love white for spring and summer, contrasting against bronze skin, and a lightweight utilitarian jacket is the perfect cover-up for chilly nights. WWW used Kate Bosworth's Nylon cover party ensemble as an example, and I think it looks awesome. Except for one thing... those fucking boots. I guess maybe this was okay for the specific event, but definitely not for everyday. I personally would style this look with sandals, wedges, or even classic tennis whites. Perhaps the boots wouldn't be so bad if they weren't so pointy. If you must go with boots, go for biker or combat style boots, à la Doc Martins or something. Keeps up with the utilitarian theme...
