THT- Favorite White Dresses for Summer Heat


Nothing like white dresses that say, “fresh” for summer.

Hi friends,

I hope you had a good weekend! I am starting the countdown until we go to Isle of Palms for my mom’s 80th celebration. 11 more days!

Staying at a house, I am beyond ready for an escape. Soon, I will be thinking about packing, which is always loads of fun, am I right?

Well, I may bring one white dress to Charleston, but while I was searching, I thought to share some of my picks with you.

If you feel white is too stark for you, there is also off-white choices. In addition, you could:

  1. Wear a thin wrap- I have a cashmere light wrap in orange, and you could wear that as the color around your face.
  2. Wear gold jewelry to warm up the look.
  3. Take the focus off the white with a warm colored necklace  or wear a colorful silk neck scarf.

I’m in love with this dress from Mango. It does have an open back, so the pasties another bra will have to work. Just love the style.

Petal and Pup linen dress. A little cut out goes a long way with this maxi dress.

If you don’t want to show your shoulders or arms, a light wrap will do as well.

This Steve Madden cotton midi dress is under $40, and looks perfect with its straps thick enough for a regular bra and its tiered style.

This off white midi dress is in linen and I have it in a print. If you want to see the style on me Click HERE for the blog post

It is classic, on sale and will keep you cool all summer!

A linen slip dress for under $30! Thats a win! You can pair it with rattan acessories and you have a lovely summer look, or try a mix of black and white.

This dress is under 50 and has some detailing that makes it stand out.

Perfect poplin dress. The right length and pockets! Another great material besides linen to wear in the summer.
From Chicos- They have a buy one get one 50% off sale.

Lace cami dress from H&M, is flowy, a light sundress with some fabulous detail. Part cotton it will keep you looking good and cool.

My style for sure, this Ralph Lauren linen shirtdress has a wonderful tie to accentuate the waist. I love the clean lines, making for a classic look

A quality piece from Talbots this dress is 40% off ( as of 6 /10 ). I love the cut out embroidery on this shirt dress.

This dress caught my eye straight from the get go. The detailing on the dress is beautiful and it screams Summer. There are a few sizes left, and it is 40% off.

This pretty ruffled dress in cotton from Belk is on sale under $35.

These are just some of what you will find searching for white dresses.

How you Can Style Them

Now, if you didn’t check out yesterday’s post, I have many shoes (in different categories) that I am loving that would go fabulously with a white dress of your choosing. I always love them paired with neutrals or raffia shoes and accessories. Perhaps you like a pop of color in your accessories, I have that covered with some red and pink heels.

They certainly can be dressed down with sneakers if you like that modern and youthful look.

Tell me, are you a fan of white dresses and where do you wear yours? Let me know in the comments.

    What a timely most!! My white eyelet dress bit the bullet this summer. The elastic in the smocking gave up the ghost. I think it is about 15 years old and in this dry summer heat, my faux leather cracks and my smocking dry rots!! I have a tab open for the Amazon dress you’ve featured and for the Madden dress, too. Thanks for doing the shopping for me!!

    A white dress with a tan looks fabulous! I’ve always steered clear of white because of potential spillages but I’m tempted to buy a white floaty dress for my next trip to Madeira. I hope you have a fantastic trip!

    A propos! I chose styling white dresses or skirts for the Ageless Link Up for next month. To change it up, we will pair them with brights. I have 3 white dresses in very different styles in my closet!
