These fail-safe white dress outfit ideas= your Summer wardrobe sorted. Boom.
I’m not exactly Einstein (understatement of the year), but I certainly know that the white dress is at the centre of any style equation this Summer, or any Summer for that matter!
Whether you’re sizzling your way through the Australian Summer, or are keeping your fingers crossed for that little bit of sunshine, here’s the white dress outfit ideas that sizzle hotter than the flame emoji.
From casual the linen white dress style, to something a little bit boho and frilly, these white dress outfits will get you through scorching beach days, sunset cocktails and dancing under the stars.
Now, repeat after me: “e= mc chic”
1. White Midi Dress + Boho Belt+ Leather Bag
Dress, Bag and Shoes: All Next*
This Next* midi dress is a total dream, but I felt like I needed to give it my own boho twist. Enter the boho buckle belt! I added to the tan hues with this Next* shoulder bag and sandals, which match so well it wouldn’t be ridiculous to say that they were separated at both.
I added my trusty Ray-Bans, threw my sweaty hair (#toomuchinfo) into a half top-knot and I was ready for a day of cafe-shopping and boutique shopping in Port Douglas!
2. White Linen Dress + Basket Bag

Am I the only person who loves a bit of crinkled linen? Whether you opt for an iron or not, a white linen dress is always a hit for Summer.
Add the trusty rattan basket bag into the mix and you have a white dress outfit that is so darn Pinteresting, it deserves its own board!
P.S. Check out that ruffled wrap shape!
3. Strappy Sun Dress + Neck Scarf

There is something so effortless about a little white dress paired with a neck tie. It’s like Parisian chic and beachy bliss have come together in a melting pot of style goodness!

With a dress this pretty, who needs shoes?
Be the ultimate bohemian babe and pair a lace maxi dress with lashings of burnished silver or gold jewellery. Go for stacks of bangles, oodles of anklets and a whole gypsy symphony of necklaces.
5. White Wrap Dress + Straw Hat

As white is such a plain colour, it’s fun to experiment with different shapes, cuts and details. This wrap, bow-tied shirt dress plays with symmetry and flaring in oh-so-subtle, yet clever ways.
Pop on a rattan hat and add this seasons must-have texture into the mix.
This type of dress would look incredible with a tan. You can check out my fail-safe fake tan tips here.

One word: expensive.
Super detailed frills make for something that looks straight off the runway. Add an ‘it bag’ and you may as well be plastered on the best dressed pages.
An ‘it bag’ doesn’t have to be designer, it can be a chic, statement highstreet piece too.
7. Super girly dress + Minimal gold jewellery
Those subtle frills are made for teaming with minimalist gold jewellery. This white outfit is perfect for the modern minimalist!
