White Dress Summer Is Here, And This Is How College Fashionista Members Styled Them

Wearing a white dress isn’t just for high school and college graduation day, it’s a trend that is perfect for summer. Whether donning a whimsical white, flowing gown in a field of daisies or taking pictures in your mini dress by the water on your tropical vacation, these College Fashionista community members styled white dresses across myriad aesthetics. Some of these CF community members even jetted off to France, Greece, and beyond to live their best European summers. After all, American travel to Europe is said to exceed more than 50% of its numbers from last summer. 

Either way, whether you are living your Mamma Mia fantasy or enjoying your summer staycation with your hometown friends, you deserve to look your best in a trendy summer white dress. If you abide by the classic fashion rule of “You can’t wear white after Labor Day,” then you have about one month left to wear your fave outfits. If you don’t subscribe to any style rules, then you can rock your white dress, tops, skirts, and beyond year-round. If you need a bit of seasonal style inspiration and bold accessory guidance, these 10 CF community members have you covered with some fabulous fits.

This Floral Goddess White Dress

The off-the-shoulder look in combination with tiny floral embellishments is ideal for *literally* frolicking in a seasonal patch of wildflowers. You can live your fairytale fantasy in this short white dress, and pair it with a bold shoe. Instagram user @sienamariaaa wore white cowboy boots to complete this look.

Concert-Ready White Dress

There’s a common misconception that little white dresses aren’t edgy. This dress worn by @sickovivian is so punk-rock, it’s unreal. The little black bows and black lace trim are adorable and don’t overpower the white velvet material. P.S. We also love Lyn Lapid!
