Best White Dresses for Summer

The little white cotton dress is my go-to for summer months; there is an entire section of my closet dedicated to them.

I often get questions about wearing white with my littles but candidly, I stock up on inexpensive white pieces each summer and just let it rip – if they get dirty, I was them. If they get stained, they might make it into the PJ drawer and at the end of the season, I donate. I’m not too precious with my summer clothing.

This white dress is one of my long time favorites and is actually a romper with built-in shorts. It is several seasons old but I’m showing you because I like the simple styling for a day at the park. I paired it with my bright blue crossbody bag from Leatherology and a gold headband I got on sale from Loeffler Randall. Casual and effortlessly chic but put together.

This little number on the left is perfect for a lunch date with a friend or a dinner at home with friends. It works well for expecting mothers but also has a fun, swingy cut for after baby. Here, I opted for a casual look with my new black crossbody from the Daily Edited.

The one on the right is a similar cut but requires a slip because it is a bit sheer. At the ranch, I often wear it with a bandana tied around my neck and swap into boots for night. Here, I have it styled with my ODP water bottle bag and inexpensive leather slides with a fun twilly tied around my hat. This similar option is under $60!

This eyelet dress sold out super fast, but I found a similar option on sale for under $50! Such a steal! I opted to add patriotic accessories to commemorate the Blue Angels flying over Dallas during the pandemic. I paired my favorite red heart earrings from Etsy with some strappy red sandals from the Banana Republic.

I’m sure if you’ve been following me for a while, this look has popped up on your feed a couple of times. This dress was the fastest sellout, but is still available in the black option and is under $100. I was able to find a similar white option from this year’s collection that is almost identical! I paired this chic dress with black patent booties and black cat-eye sunglasses.

Not so much *little* but still a fan favorite white dress. This H&M eyelet maxi dress was a big hit and a great bargain under $50! This was perfect for my friend’s birthday dinner and could also be the perfect beach coverup. I paired it with my favorite strawberry bag from Kate Spade and a strawberry headband to match.
