    Looking for an easy summer look to see you through the season? Our collection of white summer dresses ticks all the boxes. Bright, light and stylish, these dresses are perfect for any summer occasion, from garden parties and family barbeques to summer weddings and a day in the office.

    Whether you choose a sleek shift dress with minimal accessories or a loose broderie anglaise style for your beach holidays abroad, white summer dresses are the easiest wardrobe piece to slip on and feel fresh and confident this year.

    Whatever your personal style or body shape, there’s a perfect summer dress for you. Don’t love your legs? No problem – just opt for a longer white dress that exudes sophistication. Want to conceal your arms? We’ve got dresses with long sleeves and ¾ length sleeves that will conceal and flatter. If you’re looking for something pretty to wear to a festive summer event, try a lacy number or an embroidered white dress. Or if you need a dress that’s more elegant, opt for a fitted dress with a scalloped hemline for a look that’s both summery and chic.

    White suits practically all skintones, and the best part is that it will make your summer tan (whether it’s natural or not) look even more bronzed and gorgeous. These dresses are so versatile, that they can be paired with any accessory or shoe, depending on the occasion – simply add a flip flop and a straw hat for the beach or a pair of colourful heels and a clutch bag for your summer fête. Easy!

    Our fashion editor has scoured the high street to find 20 styles to satisfy every taste and occasion – whether you favour a structured silhouette or a breezy boho fit, so don’t pack your summer suitcase without one!
