White dresses are a thing of beauty. They can be as simple or ornate as you like, and they are always elegant, in any incarnation. You can wear them anywhere, even to a friend’s nuptials. Wearing white to a wedding if you’re not the bride used to be taboo, but these days you can totally pull it off under the right circumstances. And don’t underestimate the power of a little white dress (LWD) for date night — it packs just as much of a statement as the little black dress (LBD). The simplicity of both is deceptive; they make a statement without having to say much at all. Here are 100 white dresses you can wear to any event.

White dresses transcend the seasons and are versatile, no matter the time of year. For example, if you’re going to be a bride this coming fall (congrats!), you can pick from any number of amazing modern wedding gowns that work equally well for all seasons. These beauties are good year round. And for those of us who may be looking for an alternative dress for a reception (or date night or cocktails with the girls, or just because), take a peek at this treasure trove of possibilities.

Don’t get stymied by the challenge of finding just the right occasion for a white dress. They are flattering on everyone, and there is always a way to work one into your day. Just rock that dress, and you’ll be golden.
