If there’s one blog post request I’ve received most frequently over the last few months, it’s been for little white dress (lwd) recommendations! I promise I haven’t been ignoring you guys… Just was waiting for the weather to warm up a bit! 🙂
Y’all know that white dresses are no stranger to my closet. I’d much rather wear a bright color or a light neutral shade over black any day of the week. I know, that’s not very “New York” of me, but I think it’s obvious I’ve never really fit the typical Manhattan style mold. Needless to say, I’m really looking forward to incorporating more white into my wardrobe, especially now that spring and a few pre-wedding festivities are on the horizon!
I took advantage of the bare leg temperatures we had in New York last week and pulled on two new lwds I found at David’s Bridal. If you’re on the hunt for stylish, yet affordable white cocktail dresses I highly recommend checking out their selection! It can be a struggle finding good white dresses because many stores will only have a small number of styles, plus if you’re shopping online it’s nearly impossible to tell if the fabric is actually opaque.
Well I tested the two dresses you see here and I can fully attest that no one will be seeing your underwear if you decide to wear one of these to your rehearsal dinner, bridal shower or grad ceremony 😛
David’s Bridal Short Sequin V-Neck Dress (wearing size 2)
This short sequin v-neck dress is my favorite out of all the ones I tried on at the store! I didn’t think I’d ever be into a white dress with sequins, but the embellishments on this one are incredibly subtle and would work great even for daytime. I’m also obsessed with the v neck open back and sheer flutter sleeves. Bonus points that the length hits just above the knee too!
David’s Bridal Tiered Lace Short Dress (wearing size 2)
The vintage vibes of this tiered lace dress totally hooked me! I immediately fell in love with the high neckline. How pretty is the back too? It fits like a glove and is not too short, making it perfect to wear for special occasions with family.
A lot of you have been asking me what I plan on wearing to my bridal shower and I definitely think either of these would make great options. My Aunt Jen has already started planning mine for this September (hopefully the weekend before my birthday!) so I still have some time to decide, but I’m already feeling so excited!
If you’re looking to add a new white dress (or two!) to your closet, I rounded up a bunch of additional styles below. I want THEM ALL!
Big thank you to David’s Bridal for sponsoring this post!
