If you add only one thing in your cart this month, let it be an Easter dress. This season’s plain white dress is voluminous and feminine as .. can be. You will be head-over-heels once you get a look at how fashion houses and street style mavens are wearing them. Simple cotton or luxe satin/silk are our favs.
Plain White Dress Footwear
One of the best ways we’ve seen these dresses style is with white socks and white tennis shoes. A plain white dress gets instant street style cred with low top tennies and socks. Wrap your hair in braids and put Anne With an E in your Netflix queue and you are good to go. This look is so art-fab that it belongs in your local gallery.
Feeling footloose and fancy-free? You don’t need much in the accessory department if you pick a plain white dress with simple embroidery. A cotton dress gets a little pick-me up with embroidery dotting the fabric. Add an embroidery project to your list if you’re tapping into your crafty side these days. An mid-length dress with a drop hem will keep you comfortable as you keep a 6-foot distance.
Take a look at our article on retro romantic fashion and focus in on the muumuus. Muumuus take a plain white dress to the beach with ease. Next to tennis shoes, colorful sandals is our next favorite option in the shoe department. Add your favorite pair of neon-strapped Tevas and a cool shopping bag to store your essentials. Love this dress in white polka dots!
Puff Sleeves, Please
Another big trend for these dresses is the incorporation of puff shoulders and sleeves. A giant balloon sleeve (short or long) makes a plain white dress fit for a princess. This style looks wonderful accessorized with an oversized clutch in the bright color of your choice.
Give Peace a Chance
White is also the perfect color for the peaceful, easy-loving types. Look for a 70s-inspired plain white dress with bishop’s sleeves and a shorter hem. An unfinished (or raw) hem will give your dress an extra dose of casual. We like this style with a slouchy purse and long strap. Total stay-at-home festival fashion, man.
Buttons Oh My Buttons
Just like embroidery, a few buttons down the front will suffice. Keep buttons on a plain white dress simple and neutral. The excitement should be saved for the voluminous size and puff sleeves. Buttons act as a replacement for jewelry, so none needed! Just your favorite top handle purse and a simple sandal.
The trick is to keep everything big and loose. A voluminous, plain white dress is comfortable and fun. Going big in the sleeve department or rocking this season’s grunge-like baby doll trend is key. Pick a style that pleases you and then have fun going funky on the accessories. That’s a fashion wrap, lady!
