For summer 2022, the dresses of choice are definitely white puff sleeve dresses. There’s just something about wearing a white dress in summer that feels *so* right. You can play out all of your cottagecore dreams, because of the dreamy puff sleeves, while still managing to be minimal because of that clean colourway. And of course you can switch up your sandals, bags and jewellery to style your dress however you want to look that day.
And just because it’s a summer purchase, don’t forget to look to autumn and plan some interesting ways to style your dress to ensure you get the most wears possible fro it (and amp up its sustainable style…) A cosy cardigan, layered over a striped polo-neck, worn with chunky Chelsea boots – the options are endless. A white puff sleeve dress really is the ultimate blank canvas, fashion-wise. (You could even wear one as a wedding dress, if you want!)
So, which are GLAMOUR’s favourite styles of white puff sleeve dresses to shop this summer (and wear all year…)? Self-Portrait’s white lace dress is ideal if you are looking for something for a special occasion while Dream Sister Jane’s organza maxi dress is a dream of puffs, ruffles and frills. But don’t forget, white puff sleeve dresses can be tough too, All Saints’s have a long sleeve version in denim and ASOS’s white dress is unadorned – apart from a tie-up back – which feels pleasingly understated.
