Ali Ro Ruffled Cap Sleeve Dress

The perfect style choice for a hot sunny day is the fun, fresh and feminine white dress. Nothing says summer like a white dress and it’s perfectly classy and stylish—just like its counterpart the little black dress. White is such a simple, refined shade and instantly creates a crisp, fresh look that will have you feeling beautiful and sophisticated. Dressed up or dressed down, the breezy white dress is a classic fashion option for the summertime that can suit almost any occasion.

DKNY Ruffled One-Shoulder Dress

White dresses are great fashion pieces to own because they’re so versatile. Whether you prefer something sleek and form-fitting or looser and flowier, the classic white dress is a heavenly choice for a casual day out, a formal summer occasion, or a night out with friends. They were plentiful during this year’s spring runway shows as designers from Dolce and Gabbana to Ralph Lauren took their idea of the white dress and created either simple yet stunning pieces or added details and embellishments to make the dress look edgier and with an antique vibe.

The white dress can be worn with little to no accessories since it is a statement piece on its own, but it is always fun to dress the look up and create a style that is fitting and attractive on you. The easiest way to glam up your white dress is to pair it with a sexy pair of shoes—whether its heels, wedges or sandals. You can pair your white dress with nude heels and neutral accessories for a classic look or choose to be more adventurous by wearing colorful, printed accessories in green, blue, and other colors. Throw in some neon for an even bolder look. Mixing bright whites with metallic silvers and gold or platinum is also an eye-catching solution for the transformation of a little white dress.

ASOS Dress with Cut-Out Bust

You can accessorize your dress with black to create a contrasting look that is classy and adds some sophistication. For a more seductive look, lacy white dresses are a great option that still looks soft and feminine. Geometric cut-outs are also fabulous and provocative ways to spice up a plain white dress. If you want your dress to skim over your curves, add some shape by wearing a slim belt. Blazers and cardigans are smart layering pieces that can make your dress look chic and well put-together.

Finally, do your makeup minimally with a hint of nude, smoky or sun kissed colors for a smoldering summer look. Try red or coral lipsticks for an extra pop or a sultry nude gloss with a tint of pink. Go for either minimalist and feminine or daring and sexy in your white dress ,but just remember the key is wearing a flattering style.

Set aside your little black dress and stay cool this summer with something a little lighter and brighter— the white version. It’s sensually sophisticated and instantly offers a fresh, chic look that’s incredibly versatile. Whether you wear a soft, fluid shift for the daytime or opt for something more risqué at night, the white dress is effortless and impeccable and creates a smoldering, feminine appearance. Simplicity and elegant minimalism combined with a touch of youthful spirit and romanticism defines the white dress and makes it your go-to summer wardrobe staple.
