A white dress is the epitome of summer style; be it linen, seersucker, or cotton, there's an abundance of timeless styles available to suit everyone right now. What's more, the versatility of a white dress should never be underestimated, from beach to bar, shopping to dinner out, a simple white dress can take you effortlessly from day to night with just a quick change of shoes and accessories.
There's something about a warm summer day in this country, whereby as soon as the sun comes out, it makes you want to reach for that crisp white sundress. Perfect
to throw on with chunky sandals, a straw bag, or even this summer's crochet bucket hat for a walk in the park, a white dress is undoubtedly a timeless summer staple. Invest in a good one, and you'll wear it for years to come.
Wearing white does, however, come with a warning; some lightweight fabrics are known to be on the sheer side, especially on a bright sunny day, so protect your
modesty in unlined styles by wearing a slip underneath for extra coverage or some no-VPL underwear. Neutral colours to match your skin tone is the best option under white as it blends rather than offers a stark contrast to the skin. Seamless styles are more favourable under thin fabrics such as silk and satin for a smooth, streamline silhouette.
Whether you're looking for a midi, maxi, mini, or anything in between we've found the best 14 white dresses to buy now and wear forever. Just be careful of spilling drinks in pub gardens!
