This “Boring” Dress Is Set to Be Summer’s #1 Buy


Fashion decrees that everyone should consider owning a little black dress, but there’s an equally viable case to be made for the little white dress. Not that it has to be little (especially if you’re wearing your LWD in the city rather than at the beach), but as long as it’s crisp and bright white, then you’re good to go. There’s just something unapologetically summer-like and optimistic about this shade, be it lacy and whimsical or linen and minimalist. What’s more, the basic warm-weather staple was a pretty big deal on the S/S 23 runways.

“Much like the majority of the new-season collections, here we have another summer staple, but one that designers have reimagined in line with the ‘keep it simple but never boring’ mantra,” says Who What Wear UK’s affiliate editor Emily Dawes.

Below, you’ll find an edit of the best white dresses to invest in now that’ll see you through the summer. Before that, however, feast your eyes on the ways influencers wear their little white dresses for all the white-dress outfit inspiration you need.
