JENNI KAYNE TIERED SEERSUCKER DRESS
The Jenni Kayne Summer Dress is my go-to favorite white dress for summer. Lightweight and flowy it’s the definition of easy breezy and ideal for hot summer days and nights. The seersucker fabric means no ironing or steaming … making it ideal for travel. It was in my suitcase for our recent trip to Italy.
Another white dress from Jenni Kayne that I love.
RAILS AVRIL DRESS
Rails is one of my favorite brands for dresses and their Avril dress has been on my radar. Made of a crisp cotton, this tiered, midi-length pullover dress screams summer.
Their Lucia dress is another universally flattering classic.
J.CREW VINTAGE HIGH-NECK TANK DRESS
I love the neckline and cutaway shoulders on this J.Crew tank dress … it’s such a flattering style. With ribbed bodice and tiered skirt this is another easily wearable go-anywhere summer dress.
This gauzy white shirt dress by J.Crew is fun for a casual day or pool coverup.
THEORY A-LINE LINEN BLEND DRESS
It was love at first sight. Seriously. Theory’s A-line linen blend dress was a last minute addition to my Italy wardrobe and by far the favorite dress I wore on the trip. A little more tailored and polished, it’s an ideal dress for the office too. Does anyone still go to the office? I’ll be wearing this dress well into fall, with this linen-blend jacket I bought to pair with it. This dress is a timeless classic that will be out of style. Update: This dress is 30% off right now at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!!
This cross-back white dress from Theory, also a linen blend, is chic, chic, chic.
J.MCLAUGHLIN ELANA DRESS
J. McLaughlin’s Elana dress is a beauty for a fun occasion. With a nice capped, flutter sleeve … for those of us who aren’t excited about sleeveless.
There’s also a nice 3/4 length sleeve on the linen Riviera dress … a good everyday summer run-around-town dress.
BANANA REPUBLIC RAMIE PINTUCK DRESS
Talk about easy breezy … and a little bit romantic … and it has 3/4 length sleeves!
I’m also a fan of the Isa cotton dress. If you’re hesitant about the cut-out trend (like me) this is a great option to tip-toe in.
MANGO BELTED LINEN DRESS
Mango’s belted linen dress is so elegant. And look at the back!
I also like their Textured Skater dress, which is along the lines of the Jenni Kayne and The Drop tiered styles.
LOFT FLUTTER SLEEVE BUTTON MIDI DRESS
The Flutter Sleeve Button Front Midi dress by Loft reminds me of a popular Rails style … at a fraction of the cost.
Their Striped Flutter Sleeve Swing dress is another fun, shorter option.
ANTHROPOLOGY SOMERSET MAXI DRESS
Anthro’s Somerset Maxi dress is legendary, right? Everyone raves about it … including me. And now it comes in white eyelet. Summer perfection.
Leave it to Anthro to hit it out of the park with another eyelet number. I need an occasion to wear their Vineet Bahl Eyelet Halter dress. Stat. Oh my gosh, so good!
UNIVERSAL THREAD A-LINE MINI LINEN BLEND
My niece bought this dress a couple of months ago at Target and I shared it on the blog. It’s the most popular piece of clothing I’ve ever posted. Talk about versatile … running errands or at the beach, it’s just so light and easy to wear. It comes in several other colors. Yes, it’s on the short side. But unless you’re a super tall, willowy model (if you are, I like you anyway) it falls at a nice length.
This Linen-Blend Midi Sundress is also from Universal Thread.
So there you have it.

Ideas for Accessorizing White Summer Dresses ~
Truth be told white dresses run the risk of looking a little nurse-uniform or first communion. So accessories are important. I lean towards textural materials, like woven and cork.
And I like gold and textured earrings.
Black accessories are super chic too.
For chilly summer evenings, a denim jacket is always a good choice. For dressier occasions a light-weight wrap. And how about a black leather jacket to elevate the chic factor?!
As always I appreciate your visit and welcome your thoughts in the comments below.
I’ll be back Saturday when I join Kim and Elizabeth for our weekend inspirations.
Until then, cheers from Snowberry!
