Nothing says summer like a white dress. The end.
Seriously speaking, love me a lightweight cotton or better yet, a linen white summer dress any day and I am happy as a (white) clam. As most of you may know, I love dresses in general as they’re an instant outfit, and therefore effortless. A white dress is especially my jam come July and August. White is a universally flattering color and white dresses, in general, have a fresh, breezy, and light feel about them.
I’ve rounded up my absolute favorite swoon-worthy mini and maxi white dresses below which will surely keep you looking fresh this summer.
Nothing Beats A Crisp White Shirt Dress
Who knew that the white summer shirt dress was a thing? I got that memo as I was searching for the perfect white summer dresses.
The white button-down shirt dress is great worn as a cover-up over a bikini or one-piece swimsuit. You can dare to bare as little or as much skin as you fancy, and they’re simply cool and classic. The shirt dress also allows for one to have fun accessorizing with playful summer jewelry, a chic pair of sandals, and statement sunnies. If you are looking for some whimsical options, you can check out my recent post here.
For a white linen maxi dress option, it’s worth checking out this one by Enza Costa x Revolve and this one by Frank & Eileen. For those who prefer a mini, here is a cool oversized boxy mini style by R13. You can also style some of these white shirt dresses unbuttoned layered over a tank and paired with jeans. Lastly, you can also try wearing nude undies and a bra if the dress is not too sheer and wear it as a dress to go out for dinner dress.

Colorful Lives Are Led By Women Wearing White
Next is the midi/maxi dress. I am a big fan of Reformation’s linen midi dresses as seen here, here, and here. I find them to have a super flattering fit and the price point is summer perfect. They also happen to wear really well and are quite versatile… and by this I mean they can be worn out to dinner or a summer wedding.
I am obviously a big fan of this Mara Hoffman linen button-front midi dress that I am wearing in the photo above – a light n’ easy summer favorite. This instant classic white a-line dress by Staud is another winner with its scoop neckline and puff shoulder.

All White Mood
There are so many go-to white summer mini dresses to choose from this season. This feminine Charo Ruiz lightweight lace mini has me dreaming of summers in Capri. I’m also a big fan of Love Shack Fancy dresses and this white vintage-inspired mini with crochet trim is super cool. I would style this with a sandal for a romantic vibe or a combat boot for a bit of edge. If you are looking for a white dress that is a bit more dressy/formal, I am all for this Emilia Wickstead cloque mini dress. It just looks like the perfect fit.
