Designer White Dresses Continue To Dominate The Runways… Here Are 21 Of Our Favorites

On the spring/summer runways, our favorite designers proved once again that designer white dresses are going nowhere in 2024. And, from silk and lace midi silhouettes to playful mini-length ones, there’s something for every style and occasion. So, no matter if you’re going on vacation or staying closer to home, our carefully curated edit has you covered. We’ve even included some top styling tips to leave you feeling your most stylish ever. Will you choose a chic midi silhouette from Carolina Herrera or Rebecca Vallance? Or, will it be a sleek day-to-night mini design from Valentino or Oscar De La Renta? Whichever dresses (or, dresses) you pick, you’re about to elevate your closet with some truly timeless silhouettes.

Designer White Silhouettes With Plenty Of Texture

One of the chicest ways to add designer white dresses to your closet is to look for styles with texture. These dresses look undeniably expensive and chic, and you’ll feel incredible wearing them. For example, the white ‘Brigitte’ dress by Altuzarra. Firstly, this dress has the most beautiful scoop neckline, a defined corset-style top, and a floaty ankle-length skirt. It’s an eternally chic silhouette perfect for all upcoming summer soirées. Secondly, the textured fabric adds interest and a unique sense of style to the dress. Therefore, it’s unlikely to look like any other dresses you own. Pair yours with heels and a timeless designer bag to make the most of your look. We highly recommend the Oskan Moon studded leather shoulder bag by Isabel Marant, and Roman Romance metallic leather sandals by Aquazzura.

Alternatively, when the occasion calls for a shorter silhouette, look no further than the beautifully textured Devon strapless bow-ruched mini dress by Katie May. With a strapless sweetheart neckline, a curve-defining fit, and oversized bow-style detailing at the waist, this will be the prettiest and most sought-after cocktail dress in your closet. Pair yours with the Paris Texas Liz mirrored-leather pumps, and the Micro Bow mini tote by Self Portrait. Then, wear the look for dinner dates, a bridal shower (your own of course!), and all of those summer garden parties to come.
