While the Little Black Dress is a timeless classic, it was also the height of of-the-moment fashion this fall. The return of the LBD to the top of the "trendy" list was a lot of fun, and sure made finding the perfect party dress easy, but come this spring it's going to be a whole new ballgame. C'mon, we knew it couldn't last. The fun of fashion it that is is always changing. The must-have dress for 2007 is-- drumroll please-- the Little White Dress.

That's right, white dresses. Stark white dresses were all the rage on the spring runways and the ready-to-wear designers have followed suit by producing LWDs by the barrel full. These new styles are just starting to trickle into the stores, so be sure to snap your spring staple LWD before the best styles are sold out. This will be your go-to dress throughout the spring and summer!

Want one of the LWD styles that sparked the trend? Be prepared to throw down some serious money. Our favorite of the lustworthy LWDs is the Valentino Roma Macrame Dress (above right). This sleek dress skirts the line between virgin and vixen with a level of high-fashion style that you only find from a label like Valentino.

Want the high fashion look without the high fashion pricetag? Sunner's "Florent" dress has a couture look thanks to a ruffle-edged super deep v-neck and low slung patch pockets. Thankfully, the price is low enough that we will still be able to afford the dry cleaning bill.

Basic white feeling a little too stark for you? Break up the field of solid white without straying from the monochromatic trend by choosing a dress with subtle metallic details, like this Metallic Dot Dress from Arden B. The simple silver dots add a little something extra to an otherwise simple white babydoll dress.

For the nights when you are feeling especially brave, make an entrance in flowing white satin. This 100% Silk Satin "Charm" dress from BCBG Max Azria is an attention grabber in the style of 1940s Hollywood starlets. Pair it with super sparkly diamonds, spare high heel sandals, and yards of dewy bare skin.
