Weekly Wishlist: A White Dress for Work

I really like building my work wardrobe around neutral pieces. One piece I'd really like to add to my closet is a work- appropriate white dress. The styling possibilities of a white dress are endless. It could be paired with a bright blazer or cardigan, layered with tights and boots in winter, or kept simple with metallic accessories. Here are a few white dresses I have my eye on.

This dress is available in a number of colors and in sizes 2-24. Petite and plus sizes are also available! I love the idea of a crisp white linen dress in theory. However, in practice I'm afraid it wouldn't work, seeing as how I don't own an iron.

I've seen a number of short sleeved, knee length white lace dresses. I think it might be my favorite style of white dress.  I chose to feature this one because of the vintage feel it has. I've never ordered from Shabby Apple, but I've been wanting to give them a try.

One of these days I'm going t order something from Dorothy Perkins! I love the unique neckline of this dress. And it has pockets! Available in sizes 4-18.

How can you go wrong with an A-line, flowy dress? I can imagine putting this dress on and spinning in circles! I'm a little concerned about the sheer detail on the chest being work appropriate, but I imagine a white or nude bra would be okay. Available in sizes 14-22. 

What are your thoughts on white dresses? Which would you choose?


  1. So classy and sexy! Love the second dress.

    Have a great weekend :)

  2. Love this post! I want all of these dresses, and your idea of pairing with a bright cardi! I think I'm going to have to get that Dorthy Perkins dress! Gorgeous!

  3. Linen Cap-Sleeved Dress is very nice. I would like to buy it.

  4. I love the neckline on the dorothey perkins dress, but the asos exposed zipper dress looks really fun and pretty. I love the look of white dresses, but I've had the hardest time finding one that is lined. (Because I'm lazy and don't want to find a slip.)

  5. i love white dresses for summer. I just love the asos dress too!!
