50 White Dresses Under $50

Forgo a statement necklace and put on this dress instead.

Along with breton striped shirts and nail polish colors a 5th-grader would stash in her locker, white dreses are high on my list of things I'm not allowed to buy, simply because I already have so many.

I love them and don't understand why they don't eat up more of the black dress's dynasty. White dresses are every bit as versatile but a fraction as common, so they're my go-to simple-but-fresh option. If they weren't already on my seriously-do-not-buy-this list, I would scoop up all of the dresses in the slideshow below to wear to all my summer parties—except, say, wedding receptions.
