As ethereal and beautiful as white dresses are, they never really interested me. I suppose I’ve always been wary of them being see-through and that I would inevitably spill something on them. And while both may still be true, I’ve finally decided that the pros outweigh the cons thanks to the brands listed below.
So what makes a good white dress in 2020? Given the current dress trends, it may have smocking, tiers, puffed sleeves, eyelet, embroidery, tulle, or any combination of these features. Gone are the days of body-con white dresses (which are quite tricky to wear), and here are the days of breezy oversize silhouettes. Many of the white dresses by the brands I’m highlighting below also have a lining or are made of opaque fabrics. (Or you could just wear a slip or nude undergarments—it’s worth it.) And as far as stains go, you might want to carry these wipes around.
