White Dresses for Summer

by | Style

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

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 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!

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 all last summer.  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.

This tissue-weight embroidered sleeve dress is another summer favorite.  Lightweight dresses are perfect for the summer heat!

White Dress with Ruffle Hem (similar)  / Cork Wedges

I just picked up this white dress from Veronica Beard a few weeks ago and have worn it several times already.  The clean style will be a classic in my closet for years.

White Dress / Similar Wedges

This is a classic white dress I’ve had in my closet for several years!  It’s a staple style for Veronica Beard.  The neckline is a bit different but the style and fit are the same.  I highly recommend this dress!  It’s so easy to dress up or dress down.

Soft White Dress (similar) / Champagne Gold Espadrilles / Wicker Clutch

This gorgeous soft white shift dress is destined to be a wardrobe classic for me.  Equally as chic with flat sandals for sightseeing and wedge espadrilles for dinner, this dress will stand the test of time.  It fits true to size and I’m wearing an XS.  I’m 5’2″ for height and length reference.

White Maxi Dress / Pink Star Embroidered Basket Bag (similar)  / Raffia Sandals (similar)

Avara is another excellent online destination for well-priced summer dresses of any color.  This white maxi is a go-to for me.  It feels so much more expensive than its $124 price.  Fully lined and fitted to perfection, it is a go-almost-anywhere dress with a change of accessories.

The first is this white dress that I recently featured in my Black and White Summer Styles from Nordstrom post. This crisp shirt dress is flattering on any figure.  Nordstrom is a great place to look for a white dress and has a ton of options. Plus, if something doesn’t work, they offer free returns.

White Rhode Dress

White Rhode Dress  / Cork Wedges / Wicker Clutch

I bought this dress for a beach party during Spring Break.  I’ve loved wearing it several times since.  The full skirt is fun to wear with the inset panels that create extra fullness and movement.

White Long Sleeved Terry Tunic Dress / Similar Silver Hoop Earrings / Sandals

Cabana Life is a great source for casual summer dresses.  This terry tunic dress and the sleeveless version are staples for me in the Spring and Summer.  They are also great swimsuit cover-ups as I shared earlier this week in the Best Swimsuit Cover Ups to Wear this Summer.

Similar White Eyelet Lilly Dress / Similar Wedges

If you need a classic white dress for any occasion, I recommend checking out Lilly Pulitzer. They have a full white dress shop on their website year-round with so many styles to choose from.  My mother wore a dress similar to this eyelet maxi to my daughter’s Italian Graduation Brunch and so many of you have purchased it, too!  It’s so pretty.

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.
