Memorial Day weekend kicks off this weekend, marking the beginning of summer weather. With that comes a slew of other events that call for the perfect little white dress. I can’t think of an occasion where this piece isn’t suitable – unless, of course, you’re attending a wedding and you’re not the bride. Aside from that, white dresses always go far in my wardrobe. They’re a top pick when I’m traveling, chilling at home with the fam, or planning a fancy dinner. There’s usually a different design for every occasion, making it an easy color to go after. From graduations to bachelorette parties and beach getaways to date nights, here are the prettiest white dresses you can shop for under $100!

Cotton Maxi Dress

This non-stretch cotton dress is crisp and sweet with the empire waist, square neckline, and ruffle straps. It’s the perfect dress to wear to a graduation, baby shower or a weekend out. Just add a straw bag and strappy slides for the perfect summer look.

Knit Midi Dress

If you love pieces that pull double duty, this knit midi dress is a great option. The slimming silhouette and mid-length cut make it so easy to dress up or down. I can see it being equally chic with sneakers or strappy heels. Thanks to the simple design, you can even keep in your wardrobe past summer to re-wear next year.

Voluminous Dress

I’m seriously drooling over the voluminous dress trend. It just looks so fun, youthful and trendy. Floaty pieces like this can be harder to style as it might add the illusion of weight – or if you’re petite like I am, then you might be drowning in it. To prevent that from happening, be sure to pair it with bright, minimalist heels – and opt for a shorter hem.

Pleated Slip Dress

There’s much to love about the versatility of this dress. You can wear it as is on top of a swimsuit while you’re on vacation, style it up for a night out by cinching it at the waist, or add a blazer for an office-appropriate look. There’s really no limit… But act quick because it’s almost sold out!

Lace Overlay Midi Dress

For all the brides-to-be or those who had to push your wedding back from COVID last year, you’ll love this exquisite lace midi. The sheer mid section is so sexy – but not too revealing. You can wear this to your rehearsal, bridal shower, bachelorette party or anything in between.

Asymmetrical Dress

Here’s another option for brides-to-be; however, it can also work for a girl’s night out look. The asymmetrical shoulder design is super eye catching and the thigh slit puts the final touches on this gorgeous number. You don’t need much else to complete your sultry summer look. Here’s another stunner that’s a bit more playful if you love the asymmetrical look.

Embellished Dress

It’s hard to believe that this embellished mini is under $70! The fact that it’s adorned with sequins teamed with a thigh-grazing hemline, you might want to keep this one for the evenings – perfect for date nights with the Mr.

Eyelet Dress

Need something more suitable for the day? There’s some great white dresses for that too! This eyelet midi can be worn anywhere – just add the right shoes to create the ultimate look. The bustier top is a nice change of cut while still retaining that casual daytime vibe.

Broderie Mini Dress

I’m all for white dresses with a little pizzazz to them – and this one is it! The sweetheart neckline, puff sleeves and tie detail come together to produce the most charming frock. Pack this one on your next vacation for a gram-worthy look.

Linen Button Front Dress

This super affordable linen dress gives me all the summer vibes. The belted waist and midi length feel super polished while the linen fabrication makes it a practical option in the sweltering heat. Style it with nude heels for a classic ensemble.
