I'm Not Getting Married, But I Can't Stop Eyeing These Stunning White Dresses



When it comes to shopping, what attracts us the most to a garment is its color. More than fit, silhouette, or style, color is the key. We all have a select set of colors that we tend to gravitate toward when it comes to our personal style. Some love chic, minimal, neutral tones while others prefer bold colors and have a little bit more fun when it comes to experimenting with a color palette. For me, I’m a mix of both.

I’ve always said that my mood determines how I dress. Some days, I go for a ‘90s New York City fashion critic look, with strong black pieces that emphasize great tailoring and convey an aloof sense of luxury. On other days, I prefer to stand out on my commute with fun colors, fabrics, and silhouettes that say "I’m not afraid to take risks.” But there’s one color that always catches my eye: white. There's something about a great white shirt with the perfect pair of jeans, and every year, I eagerly await the change to break out my favorite white jeans and linen pants.

Recently, while researching spring and summer dresses, I realized that almost everything I liked was white. As I scrolled through the mountain of dresses in my online wish list, I couldn't help but think "This would be perfect for a bridal shower," "This would look amazing at a bachelorette party," or "I'll save this one for my own rehearsal dinner." I'm not even close to walking down the aisle, but I am an expert on white dresses, and I don't believe in gatekeeping. So, I've put together a list of the chicest white dresses out there, from the coolest Coperni look to the most romantic Reformation dresses, to help future brides-to-be find their dream dress.
