Cool White Dresses for Summer

by | Style | 0 comments

Do you follow the old rule of only wearing white between Memorial Day and Labor Day?  Not me! In Texas, once it gets over 75 degrees, white becomes a staple color in my wardrobe and as long as it’s HOT HOT HOT, you’ll find me in white also!  With that in mind, I’ve updated my Favorite Cool White Dresses for Summer….and beyond!

Just as you should have a little black dress on hand, I recommend having a go-to white dress or 4!  I love a great white dress anytime!  From eyelet to linen to crisp cotton, there are so many options for a great white dress!  I’ve shared inspiration photos below for styling ideas and a full boutique of beautiful white dresses for summer below.

Similar White Eyelet Dress / Gold Espadrille Wedges / Similar Straw Bag

This sweet white eyelet dress I wore in Spain is a favorite.  It is a classic style and was a best seller.  This dress is almost identical and just beautiful.  It will be a classic you reach for over and over.  I love the puff sleeve and tiny ruffle details.

Havana Mini Dress / The Essaouira Tote / Cognac Leather Alibi Sandals

You well know that the Brochu Walker Havana Dress is a staple for me in any color.  This mini Havana in Ivory (that is really white!) is something I reach for at least weekly.  I love the weight of this fabric and the fact that it stands up to heat well.  It’s such an easy dress to style, too.  Belted or unbelted with flats or wedges, you can’t go wrong with this one!

Veronica Beard Bell Sleeveless Ruched Stretch Poplin Dress

White Dress / Similar Wedges

White Dress with Ruffle Hem (similar)  / Cork Wedges

A clean style white dress like these from Veronica Beard have been a classic in my closet. I’ve had both of these for several years and still wear them. Veronica Beard tweak’s their shirt dresses every few years with a bit different neckline or ruffle. I highly recommend a white Veronica Beard dress!  It’s so easy to dress up or dress down and uber flattering!  I’ve linked several below.

Ivory Lace Up Sheath Dress / Dior Bag / Nude Mule Sandals

Equally as chic with flat sandals for sightseeing and wedge espadrilles for dinner, this soft white shift dress will stand the test of time.  It runs a bit small and I’m wearing an S.  I’m 5’2″ for height and length reference.

Parker dress with pleated detail / Miss Dior mini bag / Metallic Wedges 

Avara is another excellent online destination for well-priced summer dresses of any color.  The pleated details on this sweet dress are too good!  Available XS-XL.  It feels so much more expensive than its $108 price and is 30% off!

White Terry Tunic Dress / Similar Silver Hoop Earrings / Sandals

Cabana Life is a great source for casual summer dresses.  This terry tunic dress is so versatile for Spring and Summer and part of my What to Wear for July 4th round up.  They are also great swimsuit cover-ups.

I’ve shared more beautiful white dresses I own in the pictures below in addition to a boutique full of my favorite white dresses for summer.
