Little White Dresses You'll Love

by Olivia T. July 22, 2015

It’s time to say so long to the famous little black dress, because there’s a new classic making its appearance on brides and bridesmaids alike. Fresh and elegant, little white dresses are perfect for every occasion. Especially during the summer months, the light, versatile, and oh-so-chic styles are a breath of fresh air. We love how a little white bachelorette party dress is the perfect mix of bridal and fun. Brides-to-be can also slip on a white number for their bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, and even second reception outfit. Your ladies will also love these colors, as well. While it has traditionally only been reserved for the bride, we love the trend of little white (or ivory!) dresses for bridesmaids. Your girls can rock a singular style for streamlined look, or opt for an array of styles in the same light colored shade so that each bridesmaid’s personality can shine. Adorned with lace, chiffon, and dainty details, there are so many factors that give these Kennedy Blue designs their unforgettable sophistication. Check out our sweet selection available in white or ivory, and be sure to order the styles that make your heart sing the most.

Some of Our Favorite Little White Dresses:

Camilla

The Camilla gown reads as if it were torn from the pages of a fairytale, with its ethereal chiffon skirt and gorgeous strapless sweetheart neckline. Offering a lace bodice with ruched detailing, it’s perfect for slipping on during the reception for a more casual, cake-cutting look.  


Harper

The a chic dress with an illusion lace neckline for your bridesmaids, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, bachelorette, or reception! | Little White Dresses You'll Love

This fitted, fashionable number is the definition of classy. Harper's gorgeous keyhole back, satin sash, and intricate button details make it formal enough to be a beautiful white or ivory bridesmaid option.


Ashton

Captivating and graceful, the Ashton gown boasts a lace illusion neckline and delicate short cap sleeves. The back is just as gorgeous with a V-detail and sweet sash. And the light and airy chiffon skirt makes the gown perfect for a summer wedding or a bridal shower.


Peyton

A sophisticated v-neckline is accented with illusion lace straps for elegant finesse. The Peyton gown also has a gorgeous lace keyhole back with a button closure at top and a soft sash to tie in a romantic bow that’s reminiscent of old-world glamour.


Londyn

The Londyn gown is a charming little white frock that hits just above the knee. All of this style’s sweet touches give it some serious style points. An elegant illusion lace neckline shines over a sweetheart bodice underlay, while its delicate chiffon belted waist provides a stunning natural-waist silhouette.


Laura

With a stunning sweetheart neckline and an elegant knee-length cut, the Laura gown is simply timeless. Subtle lace provides gorgeous texture, while the figure-flattering ruching detail of this design definitely ups the glamour factor. Whether it’s for your bachelorette party or a second look for your reception, Laura is bound to be a hit no matter the occasion.


Charlotte

The Charlotte gown offers a beautiful, refined silhouette with all-over lace and a wide satin sash to accentuate the waist. We love the just-right amount of skin the dress provides with its v-neckline, v-back and just-above-the-knee length, making it suitable for any occasion.


Marissa

A sweetheart neckline is updated with elegant lace cap sleeves. The keyhole back of the Marissa gown just may be the key to your heart with adorable button details. An A-line chiffon skirt hits just above the knees to amp up the dress’ sophisticated style.


Ellie

The unique design of Ellie features illusion straps with lace that transcends throughout the bodice. A beautiful V-back shows just the right amount of skin. An understated waist-framing wrap tied into a pretty bow in the back makes for an unforgettable, ultra-feminine ensemble. We love this style so much - especially for a rehearsal dinner.


Brynn

The ladylike silhouette of Brynn is absolute magic for any bridal-related celebration. Sure to flatter every figure, this little white design frames the natural waist with a beautiful flowing chiffon fabric. Soft and romantic, sophisticated lace cap sleeves will make any bride a vision of romance.


Maddie

Brides-to-be can channel old-school Marilyn Monroe glamour with this halter-top number. Maddie's elegant v-neck cut epitomizes class while all-over lace adds a vintage touch. The waistband also emphasizes an hour-glass figure perfectly. We especially love this style for a bridal shower dress.


Kiera

This chic, strapless number is sure to dazzle with its lace bodice and figure-defining sash. The v-notch adds a refreshing update to the traditional sweetheart neckline. We love the casual, yet girly vibe of the Kiera gown. It’d be the perfect pick for a bachelorette party on the town. 

Styling Your Little White Dress

Little white dresses also act as perfect canvases for your bridal fashion vision. They allow everything from statement-making accessories to beautiful bright bridesmaid bouquets to shine. As these styles are short, they’re also the perfect opportunity to showcase your fabulous feet. You can incorporate “something blue” with beautiful turquoise pumps, own black strappy sandals, or dazzle with a metallic heels. These styles also let jewelry do a lot of the talking. If you’re looking to add a little more vibrance, earrings make for excellent pops of color. Rocking an up-do with one of these designs is the perfect way to show off your favorite pair, whether it’s colored stone studs or intricate chandeliers. A sparkling necklace also accentuates any v-neck or sweetheart neckline. If you’re more of a minimalist, try rocking your fave with some patent nude pumps and classic pearls.

Whether these styles make their way down the aisle on the bridesmaids or are worn for a refined rehearsal dinner look, all of Kennedy Blue’s little white dresses are ones you not only can, but will want to wear again. From a wonderful white bachelorette party dress to a stunning bridal shower frock, there’s bound to be a style just for you. What’s not to love about how refreshing and versatile little white dresses are?

Measurement Guide

Taking Your Measurements

For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn't be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor. 

**Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it's not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.




Bust size: Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).

Waist size:  While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button.

Hip size: Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.

Choosing your correct size

Compare  these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5" (size 12), your waist measures 31" (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5" (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body. Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
