It’s official: The last days of Summer are officially upon us. That means it’s almost time for cozy sweaters, ankle boots, warm scarves–and, of course, breezy white dresses.
No, that wasn’t a typo.
Some might consider white dresses to be strictly for Spring and Summer. However, here at CF, we’re all about bending the fashion rules! This is especially true when said “rules” are (most likely) totally arbitrary and don’t take into account the awesomeness and flexibility of modern transitional dressing.
Therefore, I decided to scour the web in search of 10 of the chicest white dresses I could find that’ll fit perfectly into your summer and fall wardrobes!
Bonus: There are options for both straight and plus sizes, so no matter where you fall on the size spectrum, you’re sure to find something to suit your body and personal style!
Just keep scrolling to see them all–along with some styling tips for each!
1. Tie-Sleeve Shirtdress
You can’t go wrong with a white shirtdress. That’s especially true of this fashion-forward number, which features modern details like tie sleeves, a mockneck, and a defined waist.
Wear it now with wedge sandals and oversized sunnies, and later with leggings and white sneakers.
2. Embroidered Maxi White Dress
If ethereal, bohemian vibes are more your thing, then you’ll love this flowy embroidered maxi dress!
Lean into Fall 2019 trends by pairing it with Victorian lace-up boots and long, dangling earrings for an of-the-moment look that also gives a nod to the past.
3. Denim Dress with Ruffle
This pretty ruffled denim dress gives off a cute and innocent vibe, and is perfect for anyone with a feminine and laid-back sense of style.
Play into the dress’s sweetness with a pair of t-strap flats, or go for an edgier aesthetic with Doc Martens and scrunched-down wooly socks.
4. Puff-Sleeve Babydoll Dress
As I’ve pointed out here, puff sleeves are a super-fun trend that’s perfect for both Summer and Fall. And, this tonal striped puff-sleeve babydoll dress is no exception!
Because it reminds me of spending time in an idyllic countryside setting, I’d style it with simple-yet-cozy pieces like a wool coat, knee-high rain boots, and thick over-the-knee socks. (And maybe even a floral hair accessory for good measure!)
5. Oversized T-Shirt White Dress
Every fashionista’s wardrobe should include a solid selection of basics–including a timelessly chic oversized t-shirt dress with roll-sleeves.
The styling possibilities with this dress are pretty much endless!
However, I think it’d look super-cool with faux-leather leggings and black ankle boots. Add a black (faux) leather jacket and a plaid scarf for an edgy-yet-cozy vibe.
6. Denim Overall White Dress
’90s childhood staples are back and better than ever–including this denim overall dress.
This piece reminds me of the ones my ultra-stylish mom used to put me in when I was little. Back then, I’d wear them with pastel t-shirts, bucket hats, and jelly sandals.
And, while these pieces would still make for a cute outfit today, I’d also suggest pairing it with items that can be worn in cooler temperatures come Fall. Think: a tissue-thin turtleneck t-shirt, wool beret, gray tights, and riding boots.
7. Lace and Crochet Dress
Is it just me, or does this lace and crochet dress give off serious Country Taylor Swift vibes?
Go full country by wearing it with brown cowboy boots and a saddle bag. Or, if you’re more of a city girl, wear it with strappy sandals and an oversized tote for a combo that I’m sure modern-day Taylor would love!
8. Simple Mini Shirtdress
If you’re looking for a dress that’s perfect for all seasons, look no further than this simple mini shirtdress.
Pair it with gladiator sandals, aviator sunglasses, gold jewelry, and a straw hat in warm weather.
Once things start to cool down, swap out the sandals for lug-sole boots and the straw hat for a wide-brim (faux) wool one. Next, add a faux-fur vest for a classic look that’s both easy-to-wear and extra-fashionable.
9. One-Shoulder Eyelet Dress
This one-shoulder eyelet dress is on the fancier side. But, it can also be dressed down for everyday wear, both now and in the fall.
While it’s still warm out, I’d suggest styling it with flat espadrilles, a braided waist belt, and a distressed denim jacket.
For Fall, pair the dress with combat boots and add a cropped (faux) leather motorcycle jacket for extra warmth.
10. Button-Front Linen Dress
This cute button-front linen dress might seem like a summer-only piece. However, it can also be worn through the fall if you style it correctly!
To wear it now, simply add your favorite pair of sandals, cat-eye sunnies, and a trendy straw bag.
To wear it in during Fall, I’d recommend styling it with knee-high or mid-calf flat brown boots, an oversized cardigan, and a hobo bag.
