11 White Dresses We've Hunted Down From Instagram

Fashion lore decrees that everyone should own at least one little black dress, but there’s an equally viable case to be made for the little white dress. Not that it has to be little (especially if you’re wearing your LWD in the city rather than at the beach)—as long as it’s crisp and bright white, you’re good to go. There’s just something unapologetically summery and optimistic about this shade, be it lacy and whimsical, or linen and minimalist. Throwing one on signals that yes, the sun is going to shine.

Shopping for a white dress online, however, is a bit like trying to drive through the rain—you just can’t see everything clearly. White-on-white e-com shots don’t often give much away and sell the best details of a LWD, which is why we’ve turned to Instagram. Here, we can rely on our favourite dressers to have photographed only the most desirable white dresses in often the dreamiest of settings, really making them pop and showing them off.
