Long White Evening Dresses For Special Occasions

When it comes to special occasions, whether it’s a date night, your bridal shower, or a big birthday, white evening dresses are always a perfect choice. So, with that in mind, we curated an edit brimming with extra-special silhouettes. For example, the Moonie Mousseline silk dress by Maria Lucia Hohan. This stunning off-shoulder gown guarantees an unforgettable entrance. Additionally, the elegant neckline, structured bodice, and floor-length skirt with a sultry thigh-high split ensure you stun from every angle. So, style yours with a sky-high pair of heeled sandals, and get ready for all eyes on you. In fact, this gown is so stunning, we’d even recommend it for spring and summer brides!


Additionally, the Allonia dress by Caroline Constas is the long sleeve evening dress of our dreams. Firstly, it wows with an all-over lace detail that’s oh-so-perfect for spring evenings. Secondly, the long sleeves and floor-length illusion detail skirt are a perfect match. Add this to your evening lineup for evening plans close to home and on vacation. Warning: expect non-stop compliments from the moment you put it on!

White Evening Dresses For Spring And Summer

We know spring has only just arrived, but these white evening dresses have us super excited for summer too! Luckily, you can wear them for both. For example, the Emily tiered-ruffle mini dress by Caroline Constas has long sleeves and also a shorter hemline. Therefore, it’s the ideal silhouette for spring but will work for early summer too! Additionally, we’re swooning over the all-over lace, ruffled shoulders, fitted bodice, and tiered mini skirt. So, is this the cutest white evening dress for the season ahead? It’s a yes from us!


Finally, we’ve fallen head over heels for the cutout wool blend sheath dress by Michael Kors Collection. From the slinky fitted shape and cut-out waist to the sophisticated mid-length hem. This dress is the ultimate smart evening dress made to be paired with heeled white sandals. Also, we recommend styling this dress with a chic longline coat for those chiller spring evenings which you can take away for warm summer nights!
