How I Accessorize A White Summer Dress

white button front midi dress for summer

There’s nothing quite like a classic white linen dress for summer. My summer wardrobe wouldn’t be complete with some variation of this. It’s a silhouette that stands the test of time too. I think I’ve shared a variation of this for several years now. No shame in having a signature summer dress look, right? With summer coming to an end soon, I had to get some more use out of this little white linen dress.

I shared one of my summer classic combinations here and I would say this is the dress version of that look. A simple red bandana in your hair plus strappy sandals just makes this look feel vacation-ready. Speaking of vacations, have you gone on any since COVID? I haven’t done any traveling since everything started and I’m just so craving a warm-weather vacation. I’m mostly craving cocktails by a pool and that indulgent afternoon nap in a hotel bed after a day at the pool with said cocktails.

Ways To Accessorize A White Linen Dress

A few of my favorite things to add to a little white summer dress to dress it up a bit is a great summer belt. I love these woven belts from Mango. I have a few and they really dress up a simple white linen dress. And as I always like to do, topping anything with a denim jacket. I know it’s a lazy add, but it just works. I did it here with this little white mini dress. And always, always add a hat!
