To everyone who thinks you can’t rock white or ivory after Labor Day, actress Melissa George proves you are absolutely wrong! The former Alias and Down With Love star was photographed arriving at the local St. Barths airport on Monday, December 26th, 2011 in a medium length white dress with a brown leather belt cinching her waist.
Other stars currently vacationing in St. Barths include Jon Bon Jovi and his wife Dorothea, Kimora Lee who was joined by hubby Djimon Hounsou, and Owen Wilson.
I love that Melissa is breaking the taboo by wearing this classic white dress on vacation since those of us in areas that welcomed the holiday season in 70-80 degree weather haven’t stopped wearing lighter shades. So if you are in a warmer area and feel comfortable rocking a pretty light colored dress this “winter,” check out some options below.
The Tibi ruched dress is about the same length as Melissa’s and could easily stand to have a belt added to really imitate her ensemble. It comes in at $416.50 but its a staple piece that you can wear all year long by adding accessories to change up the look.
Another option is the Alice + Olivia’s Cammie Trapeze Dress that would fit in perfectly in St. Barths or just about anywhere like Miami or Los Angeles. This piece also easily transitions into Spring/Summer and even Fall by adding a cardigan and other fun accessories. And at only $89 on sale right now, you can buy some really pretty pieces to add to this.
The dress I REALLY love is the Dian Von Furstenberg Juliette Dress (bottom left) available in sizes XXS-Large for $769.00 on sale. It’s definitely a splurge-worthy item but it will be worth it when you look like a Greek goddess!
Other affordable options include T By Alexander Wang Classic Boat Neck Dress with Pocket for $85 that would look great over a swimsuit or for a relaxing lunch with the girls. Also the Sunglow Mini Dress by Roxy comes in at $48 and can be used for just about any occasion.
