Summer Staple: The Little White Dress

Whether you’re a casual bride-to-be or just a girl looking to ditch winter’s gloomy palette, the little white dress is a great investment for the warm days ahead. We especially love a cocktails-appropriate style paired with glam flat sandals, glowy skin and slicked-back hair. Here, 10 stunning, head-turning picks for $500 and under.
