Move over, little white dress, the little white sweater is about to give you a run for your money. We're not asking you to ditch the wedding dress all together, like Olivia Palermo famously did with her sweater-skirt combo, but we do support trying the look for your bridal shower or rehearsal dinner. Here are five bottoms to pair with your favorite white sweater. (We also found the perfect LWS in case you're in need of a new one...)

1. The Sweater
The trick to chic sweater dressing is to pick a slightly cropped style so it doesn't overwhelm you. This slouchy, soft knit is perfect un-tucked and paired with a variety of high-waisted bottoms so you don't bear skin. "Terry" crop top, $265, Alice + Olivia.

2. Your Something Blue
A loose sweater allows you to show a little leg in this blue-and-white embroidered bubble skirt. Embroidered full skirt, $350, Cynthia Rowley available at Shopbop.

3. Show Some Leg
Have some fun by pairing a casual sweater with an organza waterfall skirt. The two worlds collide seamlessly to create an original, cool look. Organza high low skirt, $100, ASOS.

4. Go Subtly Sexy
An extra long pencil in soft pink manages to stay sexy with a peek-a-boo hem and curve hugging fit. Take the va-va-va-voom down a notch by softening it with a white sweater. Pink zip front maxi pencil skirt, $60, River Island.

5. Channel Your Inner Boho Bride
Look downright heavenly by wearing your sweater with a floating, floor length pleated skirt. Long pleated skirt, $695, Tess Giberson available at The Dreslyn.

6. Take a Cue from the Guys
A clean wide legged trouser with a slouchy sweater screams old Hollywood glam. Push back the sleeves to show a little skin. Wide leg trousers, $169, P.A.R.O.S.H available at Farfetch.
