When I think of summer essentials, what always comes to mind is the white summer dress. Nothing says summer like the color white – crisp, clean and classic.
Each season I add at least one white summer dress to my rotation and I always feel like I’ve made a good investment because I wear them often. Just take a scroll on my IG handle from summers past and you will see a lot of white. I can not, will not, ever ever tire of this color. Is white even a color? I actually googled this and it said that even though white is not on the color spectrum, it is considered a color.
From coverups, and casual day dresses, to formal evening attire, there are endless white options to choose from.
While recently perusing the Love Shack Fancy site, I came across this white eyelet Victorian inspired midi dress. I love the bohemian feel to it and know I can get creative with how I style it.
For day, I can pair with a cute pair of sandals like these gold ones by Michel Vivien worn below. For evening I can add a low heeled sandal et voila – it transitions effortlessly into evening wear. I can also opt to open the bottom buttons and pair with tapered denim jeans for a more casual lewk.
I’m also considering removing the lining for a bit of a transparent ooh la la effect and use it as a beach cover-up. I still can wear it in the evening by pairing it with a nude bodysuit or nude booty shorts and bra.
Love Shack Fancy makes other fabulous white summer dresses like this Edie one. I literally wore it to pieces, so I recently had to buy another one to replace it. This Beth dress here is another winner, super flattering and always stays fresh season after season.
For a bit of va va voom, check out this mesh midi dress by Dodo Bar Or. This is a cover-up I’d wear on vacation as it’s probably too caliente to wear on the Jersey Shore.
Charo Ruiz is another great brand where you can snag a fabulous lace detailed white summer dress. I first discovered this brand in Capri a while back and remains a go-to for the jet set.

For daytime, I’m really into this linen midi dress by Mansur Gavriel. It’s easy, breezy for summer in the city or for causal strolls seaside. On the opposite end of the spectrum, this mini cotton dress by Madewell is the perfect no brainer throw on dress plus I always love a pocket detail.

Last but not least – evening wear. This cutout linen dress by Ephemera can make it’s way to dinner, party, or dinner party haha! Also loving this Audrey Hepburn – esque white midi shirt dress by Zac Posen – trés chic.
