I enjoy layering up in winters. But if I had to choose. I’d pick summer every time for all the cute and breezy outfits I can wear and style in different ways. Nothing compares to going light when the temperature climbs and allowing my accessories to truly stand out. From floral sundresses and short skirts to cute camis and cool jumpsuits, the choices are limitless when it comes to summer outfits. However, today I am going to talk about this white ruffle dress that’s become my staple for a summer’s day out.

My wardrobe has seen more solid colors than patterns and prints. But nothing more than the refreshing white. To call it my favorite would be an understatement. It’s bright and fresh. It’s cool and crisp. Its soft and understated charm makes my skin glow. And most importantly, it provides me a nice canvas to construct my whole look on. The same is the case with this white ruffle dress that I bought a little while ago.

The best feature of this dress is obviously the super cute ruffles on its mini sleeves and hem. It’s best to wear on days when you want to go for breezy elegance with a dash of playfulness. I also like the round neckline which further adds to its sophistication. This white ruffled dress is fairly easy to style too. When I first spotted it, I could already picture it in my head with my Gucci Dionysus Mini bag and beige sandals.

Now, if you are a handbag enthusiast like myself, I don’t have to explain how seriously I take my bags. When you really love something, you’re naturally more thorough and careful in how you use it. This gorgeous Gucci Dionysus Mini bag felt like a perfect partner to go with the dress. It features hand-stitched signature details and a beautiful tiger head spur closure. The sliding chain strap allows me to carry it effortlessly. Finally, to nail the look, I slipped into double ankle strap sandals that match my Gucci Dionysus Mini bag. When you’re going for a white outfit, this right here is the key to a polished look: matching the shoes and the bag. Doing so creates an eye-catching contrast that’s uniform from head to toe and hard to miss.

I hope to create more white outfits this summer that you can take inspiration and ideas from for your own relaxed look fit for a hot day. For other summer outfit inspiration check out my posts HERE.
