Favorite White Dresses for Summer

by | Style

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. Just as you should have a little black dress on hand, I recommend having a go-to white dress. Today, I’m sharing my Favorite White Dresses For Summer.

White Mini Dress / Merritt Wedges / White Handbag / Lapis Bamboo Bangles

The first is this white dress that I recently featured in my May Nordstrom Favorite Finds Post. This crisp shirt dress is flattering on lots of figures. This one is ideal for a dressier occasion where you need to be a little more put together. Here is a similar white shirt dress for less that I think you will like as well!

Another favorite retailer in the white dress category is Cabana Life. Pictured above is this more casual version of a shirt dress. The fabric of this dress is so soft and comfortable you will live in it this summer. I love that it has UPF 50+ sun protection. Other styles that are great for your white dress collection include the white terry tunic dress (available in sleeveless and long sleeve) and the new white french terry tunic. All of these are from my recent summer Essentials Collection.

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

Nordstrom is another great place to look for a white dress and has a ton of options. Plus, if it doesn’t work, they offer free returns. One of my favorite brands Nordstrom carries, Eliza J, has an adorable white dress with the eyelet sleeves right now. This brand has a great fit and is at an affordable price point. If you want more of a laid back, casual look, try this white midi dress or this three-quarter length sleeve mini.

White Eyelet 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 right now with so many styles to choose from.  makes a couple of different ones with the eyelet feature like this one and this sleeveless shirt dress with the eyelet trim that might be in my cart right now! This white one shoulder romper might also be one I have to add to my collection. It would be so cute with my new sandals, bamboo tiger’s eye bangles and a cute envelope clutch.

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.
