White is a colour some people believe they can’t wear, thinking it makes them look bigger, or drains their complexion. On the contrary, everyone can wear it, you just need to play around with it, have fun and be brave! It can be such a chic look. Add layers to give texture to the outfit or a coloured belt to cinch in the waist and a bold jacket and shoes. Be confident in playing around with this non primary colour, be daring and always think out of the box. Find the right style for you and run with it!
Spring and Summer 2019 has seen some amazing seasonal fashion but I for one have loved the number of fabulous white dresses that have been on the high-street. There has been a style for everyone and the ladies of Instagram have certainly confirmed this with so many stunning photos on their grids!

This beautiful linen dress from Aspiga is again a perfect dress for the Summer and holidays in the sun. With its gorgeously feminine smock style, ruffles and its luxurious linen it’d be a perfect, floaty investment for days when the temperatures are high. Its elasticated neckline makes it the perfect bardot style dress and as seen here on Joanna @lovestyle40 you can see what a beautiful investment this dress is and again is still available.

If an all white dress isn’t for you, one with a pattern is a perfect alternative, breaking up the block colour by finding one with another colour to add detail to draw the eye. This Baukjen Mia shirt dress is the perfect example and modelled here by Rachel from @fashionable_later you can see how the beautiful polka dot print adds the perfect amount of colour to break an all white look.
Below is the Marks and Spencers printed shirt dress which is also a perfect example of one with a pattern with its scarf inspired paisley print. Seen here on our real model Rachel @fashionable_later it fits around the waist beautifully and falls at a perfect midi length, a perfect dress for those of you that prefer a pattern to an all white look.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all my beautiful, real models who, you have to admit are perfect in their dresses! Thank you to Bev, Joanna, Emma, Maxine, Marianna, Adela and Rachel for getting involved in bringing you some perfect white dress examples to have in your wardrobes for many Summers to come.
