White Mini Dresses

Alexander Wang | Suspension Fitted Tank Dress
Shakuhachi | Mesh Cutout Dress
L'AGENCE | Crochet Bodice Dress

Whether you're attending a day party or night party, a white mini dress is a fab option to get you noticed. Show off your curves in a svelte body-con dress with cut-out detail for a little edge. For a bit of sophistication, try a tweed bodice dress with a wide neckline and cap sleeves.

White Maxi Dresses

BCBGMAXAZRIA | Bijou Maxi Dress
Nightcap Clothing | Caletto Maxi Dress
Nightcap Clothing | Apron Beach Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are an easy and stylish choice for a vacation or social engagement. We love crocheted and laced details for a vintage-inspired look and ethereal touch. While a minimalist column dress with a deep V neckline has a modern elegance.

White One Shoulder Dresses

Herve Leger | One Shoulder Dress
Badgley Mischka Collection | One Shoulder Mini Dress
Shoshanna | Rayna One Shoulder Dress

A one shoulder dress is flirty, fun and a great way to flaunt your toned arms. For a show-stopping look, try a formfitting bandage dress. We also love a loose silhouette that cascades down the body. A bustier bodice with a voluminous skirt cinches the waist for a flattering shape.

White Strapless Dresses

Blaque Label | Sweetheart Mini Dress
Diane von Furstenberg | Sahara Eyelet Strapless Dress
Rochas | Strapless Dress

Nothing beats a bold strapless dress, especially on a summer's day. With a variety of styles and cuts, anyone can rock a strapless cocktail dress no matter their body type. From a bouncy silhouette to a body-con fit, rock the style that bests shows off your greatest feature.
