Statement buttons and soft ruffles look chic against complementary tan accessories.

Just add a vibrant handbag and statement earrings to an effortless white maxi shirtdress. 

A ruffle minidress exudes sophisticated charm. Pair with nude sandals and a Jane Birkin–esque basket bag.

For a sophisticated summer work look, opt for a white tweed dress with contrasting black accessories.

The simple embroidery technique of smocking is huge this season. As are puff sleeves. Combine the two in a white dress and you have a match made in heaven. Add a cluster of stacking rings, necklaces, and barely there strappy sandals to finish your look.

Nothing looks more romantic than a white lace dress. Dress it up with nude heels and a striking purse or dress it down with flat sandals and a shoulder bag. Either way, you’ll look stunning.

A versatile button-down dress with puff shoulders can take you from work to weekend in a flash. Just add summery straw accessories for a more laid-back look.

Nothing compares to the ease and sensuality of a white slip dress. Keep the look sleek with neutral accessories.

Nothing exudes the summer season quite like a crochet dress. Dress up the casual fabric with bold earrings and a chic handbag.
