Shop the Ultimate White Dress to Take You From Summer to Fall

At under $100, this shirtdress feels like a steal.

Similar to the LBD, a white dress is just as much of an essential to your wardrobe. Especially one in a timeless silhouette. While puff sleeves, cutout minis, and open backs are fun trends for summer, nothing beats the versatility of a crisp poplin shirt dress. It just so happens we’ve found one that’s nearly perfect. For starters, it comes in an ideal midi-length (appropriate for the office, interviews, first dates, and beyond!), it’s complete with utility-inspired patch pockets, features a classic collar, and the tie belt isn’t attached, so you can remove it to wear it in multiple ways. The best part? It rings in well under $100, proving that not all wardrobe essentials or elevated basics have to be a major investment.

Thanks to its solid neutral color, simple details, and seasonless poplin material, you’ll never grow tired of this garment; it’s a one-and-done dress you’ll want to reach for again and again for the rest of the summer, and for the seasons to come. Plus, think of such a dress as a blank canvas and you’ll be able to get max wear out of it by mixing up the accessories—try out different footwear styles, layering it with a pullover, and mix it up with jewelry. It’s a dress to be worn more ways than one, which feels like a steal in and of itself.
