Cut it out

I spent five beautiful days in Puerto Rico last month and packed a dress that reminded me of everything I love most about summer – the beach trips, the sunny weather, the outdoor events, and of course, the summer dresses.

A white dress is a staple summer wardrobe piece as we navigate graduations and reunions, summer travels, and all-white attire events. With so many options for white dresses, this post features my top picks for statement white dresses. I am sharing ethically made pieces, so it is fashion that you can feel good about. I am featuring some indie designers as well, so shopping with them makes a big impact.

1. Gael Dress Oat

The Gael Dress Oat is by The Line by K, which features ethically made pieces that are made in Los Angeles. This dress is made from a heavy ribbed cotton, so it accentuates your curves and is a flattering, fitted look for a girls’ night or date night. I wore it with strappy nude heels, but you can also pair it with flat sandals for a more casual daytime look.

2. White O-Ring Maxi Dress

The White-O-Ring Maxi is a chic summer look that is perfect for a dinner party.

3. Ceren Ocak Cut Out Bass Dress – White

This look delivers business on top and party on the bottom. You can transition from your Zoom meeting to an after work cocktail event in this dress. It is made from organic cotton and linen, so it is breathable and will keep you cool.

4. Crudo Maxi – V Neck

Pack this piece for your water filled vacation (imagine a picnic on the beach). It makes a beautiful cover up and is handmade in Mexico from organic cotton.

5. Dale Linen Dress

Sometimes a simple, sleek silhouette is ideal for the occasion (and a subtle statement as you walk away). I love this look for a summer picnic in the park. It’s made from 100% organic linen, so it will keep you cool at outdoor gatherings.

I hope you enjoyed my top five picks for white statement dresses. Comment below and let me know which look is your favorite. Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Juneteenth! Juneteenth commemorates the end of slavery in the US, when the Emancipation Proclamation reached Texas on June 19, 1865. Check out this book list to learn more about Juneteenth.
