I have no will power when it comes to finding pretty white sun dresses. I’m a sucker for dainty details, eyelet patterns and embroidered touches. Because of my weak spot for pretty little shifts, a good chunk of my wardrobe is now made up of them. While I most definitely find myself reaching for them year-round, there are some days, seasons, months that require my feminine favorites to play a different part. Here’s how I work the white dress…

Side note: Shopbop is having a Friends & Family Sale, which means 25% off your entire order when you use the code: INTHEFAM25. Ends tomorrow so don’t miss out!

That’s one of the things I love about a white dress, it’s like a blank canvas that can pretty much go a number of ways depending on what you stye with it. A pair of black loafers can instantly change things up. I can’t seem to get enough pointy toe black loafers this year. There’s an edge to them that mixes perfectly with something sweet and feminine.
