Feel inspired by one of the biggest trends of the season and shop our edit of the most summery white dresses…
It’s a staple of the spring/summer wardrobe, but this season the white dress has moved centre stage. Seen on the runway at Loewe, Alexander McQueen, Chloe and Khaite, the white dress is staking its claim to be the dress of the season. Romantic, oversized styles were the main focus for designers, but there was also an abundance of minimal 90s style dresses, meaning that no matter your style there’s a white dress for you.
The high street is fully on board with the white dress trend too. From Resrerved to Zara, there’s a multitude of dresses to pick from. Here’s our edit of the 14 best white dresses to buy now.
