Every fashion-conscious girl knows that her closet isn’t complete without a classic white dress to wear for special occasions.

It’s also a shoo-in for the most favorite red carpet dress color. But lately, we’ve been seeing more and more stylish ladies wear the classic little white dress for more casual occasions, such a trip to a nearby café.

Could the little white dress be the next big thing, if it isn’t already, for daytime wear?

1. Jaime King in an Organza Dress

Hart of Dixie actress Jaime King donned this attention-grabbing dress for a walk with her husband. The dress has sheer organza sleeves and a flared skirt that drapes over what looks like a pencil skirt.

She styled it with a pair of black ankle boots, a chain-strapped shoulder bag, and a pair of sunglasses.

2. Kylie Jenner in a Gorgeous Shirtdress

This might be one of Kylie Jenner’s best daytime looks. The then 16-year-old wore a lovely shirtdress cinched at the waist with a thick belt.

We are smitten with the dress, but her choice of footwear is also quite notable. Who wouldn’t want to get their hands on that strappy pair of cutout pumps?

3. Cara Santana in a Shift Dress

Actress Cara Santana kept herself fresh and cool in a simple shift dress with punched hole details.

She also made the look low-key and summery by wearing flat sandals and large sunglasses. The punch of blue from her bag kept the look from being too monochromatic.

4. Hanneli Mustaparta in an Origami Dress

The Norwegian model looks great in everything she wears, including this long-sleeved origami dress that is as pristine as her white sandals.
