A white party dress makes a striking impression on all guests at any party. If bright white does not suit your skin tone, you could go for richer shades like ivory, beige or off-white. A white party gown is always the ideal way to celebrate any major event – including weddings, holidays and special occasions. From casual cocktail parties to elegant black tie affairs, white is the most popular choice for almost all social events. Let’s take a look at some of the top white party dresses:
One of the most classic and elegant white party dresses is always a strapless satin wedding dress. A popular choice for bridal showers, this style of dress can work well for women with ample cleavage, as it hugs your body from the bust down. You can wear it with trousers or a sleek dress shirt and lacy heels, or you can opt for a simple strapless bodice and skirt. Choose one in a chiffon or organza fabric to coordinate with your bridal shower party wear. If you would prefer to keep it simple, wear a white slip underneath the dress and accessorize with crystals or pearls.
A chic knee length dress or tea length wedding gown is just right for the classic bride. The difference between the tea dress and the ballerina short is the length. Ballerina short dresses generally stop at the knees, while tea length gowns can go up to the thighs. This is one of the great things about white party dresses; they are easy to wear, and look very chic. Choose a luxurious satin material for your dress, including lace, grosgrain and charmeuse, for an elegant look. Look for beautiful crystal bridal accessories to complement your wedding gown, such as beading or gemstones set into silver thread.
For a warm and sunny beach look, choose white party dresses that come in cool, breezy fabrics like cotton and silk. Cool white beach towels can be used to wrap up in and create a sun-drenched look. For a winter look, pair a white dress with a pair of lightweight gloves in white, or a cap, scarf, and shrug in ivory, beige, or gray to match your skin color.
A soft, comfortable white cocktail dress will make you feel like a million dollars. The best part about white party dresses is they go with any wedding theme, from classic to modern. Wear them with a basic black dress for a casual ceremony, or dress them up with a unique bridal gown with an over the shoulder design and embellishments. A knee length dress is ideal for a more formal ceremony, and black cocktail dresses are a popular choice for more formal receptions. Choose some fresh flowers in vases or spray bottles for a whimsical touch.
If you have a very pale skin tone, a bridal gown in ivory, beige, or grey would be gorgeous on you. For a warm summer wedding in a garden, try a white party dress in organza or chiffon with leggings. Opt for an embroidered white sash as a part of your accessories, or a lightweight shawl to tie around your neck. Keep warm with a silk shawl to keep you snug. For an elegant ceremony in a garden, opt for white party dresses with crystals embellished with pearls.
If you are wearing a strapless gown to your wedding, you can wear two-piece cocktail dresses in white. One such gown includes a strapless bodice with a skirt to the side, and a bodice and skirt in black with zipper detail. The second piece of this two-piece cocktail dress consists of a skirt with a slightly flared skirt and an A line back. Complete the look with a matching clutch and a white belt.
You can be even more casual than just wearing white party dresses to a wedding reception. You can pair a beautiful two-piece black and white cocktail dress with a matching clutch and choker if you prefer to wear jewelry with your clothing. For a fun afternoon wedding, opt to wear a white one-piece suit with a silk or satin bow at the waist. Complete the look with a pair of fitted white boots and a satin bow on the side.
