Anna’s Edit – White Summer Dresses

A simple white dress is a Summer staple due to it's versatile nature and timeless elegance, every wardrobe should have one...

How To Wear White

A white dress is one of those classic items that I believe every woman’s wardrobe should have. It’s the perfect Summer staple due to its versatility, ease of wearing and elegance – basically, you can’t go wrong.

If white isn’t a colour that looks great on you worn alone then adding pops of colour with accessories really helps to balance things out, in addition, we all know how amazing white looks with a tan so whether it’s a natural glow or fake tan, you can definitely find a way to make it work.

When it comes to styling a white dress you can go one of two ways; natural and neutral or bright and contrasting. Below I’d done an edit of three white dresses with some different ideas for how to style them…

Laidback Weekend – Ray White Drop Waist Mini Dress, Reiss

This dress gives me all the Wimbledon vibes, I love the ease and simplicity of it for everyday wear. I love this style for oval body shapes as it hangs beautifully and shows off your fabulous legs.

Outfit Formula

Pair with fresh white trainers for a laid-back look and a chic leather backpack for Summer in the city…

Country Chic – Filled Embroidery Midi Dress, & Other Stories

The looser style of this dress makes it perfect for those really sweltering Summer days and the shape is perfect for anybody who prefers silhouettes that skim and disguise the tummy area.

Outfit Formula

Add interest with natural textures and tan accents – these Dune sandals come in every colour you could think of and are incredibly comfortable, they’re a real Summer staple in my wardrobe. An over-sized hat not only protects you from the sun, it also adds the glam factor (woven styles allow air to move freely so your head won’t get too hot either)

City Nights – Coni Tank Dress, All Saints

I love a dress you can elevate with accessories as it gives you so many ways to wear it.

This little number from All Saints is a blank canvas and can easily be styled for daytime or an evening out. Adding colour pops to an all-white look really individualises it so if you’re feeling bold then look at accessories that will really pop.

Outfit Formula

Cinch your waist with a bold belt and tie the look together with metallic accessories to add the glam factor.
