The white clothing trend is one of our favorite S/S 2014 trends. It is fresh and simple, and it offers a myriad of styling possibilities. And when it comes to dresses, the white ones are always striking. The color itself is a statement.

So, do your wardrobe a favor and invest in some essential white dresses. If you have no idea what to get and how to style them, try the following celebrity outfits:

A plain white dress is anything but boring. Opt for one with a fit-and-flare silhouette and a tea-length. This kind of dress amplifies femininity.

Dresses with tulip or pencil skirts are flattering. But rather than the usual pairing of the white dress and white pumps, try copying Ashley’s ensemble.

5. Tent dress on Rosamund Pike

It’s easy to shy away from white tent dresses because it might resemble a sleeping garb.

One way to make sure that it doesn’t happen, though, is to opt for a mini tent dress and to wear it with classic pieces, such as a pair of Mary Jane pumps and a leather handbag.
