An all-white party is a photographer’s dream, but a partygoer’s nightmare. Searching for a head-to-toe white ensemble means sifting through your closet for something white that isn’t yet stained. Not to mention, you specifically purchased the gorgeous dresses in your wardrobe for those summer weddings in any color but white so as to not upstage the bride! So, what to wear?

To help you look your most stylish, we’ve compiled some of our favorite plus-size white pieces of the season. Some general tips: If you think you won’t have another occasion to wear a white dress, opt for separates. Separates can be much more versatile—you can pair your white jeans with just about any blouse in your closet and your white tops will work well with any of your bottoms!

Shop our selection of white plus-size clothing to find your perfect look for that super-chic invite.

All Eyelets On You

Peplum is always flirty and feminine. The Camille Lined Eyelet Tank features a high-low hemline and a lining so your skin doesn’t peek through the eyelets. Paired with white denim, this is the perfect top to dress up with wedges and earrings.

One and done! The Charlotte Sleeveless V-Neck Eyelet Fit and Flare Dress with Knot is an easy-breezy style to rock for your white party. Lined to provide an additional layer of coverage, this fit-and-flare silhouette is a universally complementary silhouette. Pair with espadrilles and gold jewelry for a look that will pop!

Sleeve It To Me

A 3/4-length tiered sleeve adds just the right amount of pizzazz. The Teresa 3/4 Tiered Flare Sleeve Blouse will be just as cute with white denim for the party as it will be with your everyday blue jeans for those easy Sundays.

If you’re looking for coverage, the Alisa 3/4 Sleeve Knit Back Blouse is the perfect top. Its knit back provides the chic look of a woven top but with comfort and breathability to help keep your cool no matter the temperature.

Short and Sweet

White shorts will highlight your gorgeous legs and make any colorful top pop when you wear them after the party. Try the Sullivan Destructed Short, and pair with platforms and a white top. Balance the look by wearing a top that has a dramatic sleeve.

This skort has the look of a skirt but the practicality of shorts! The Mandy A-Line Skort is the perfect style to wear to any event because the shorts beneath will keep you covered as you climb over a picnic bench or bend over to pick up the fork you dropped.

Capri School

While denim may feel a bit too casual for a big party, white denim always gives off an extremely sophisticated air. Pair the Tristen Cuffed Capri with a white tank and gold bangles to pull the look together.

Who doesn’t love a good elasticized waistband? Keep comfortable in the Casablanca Capris and pair with a metallic sandal and sleeveless top for a look as chic as it is practical.

Top It Off

If you’re headed to a party near the water, you’ll probably want to bring a top layer to put on when the sun sets. Instead of bringing a jacket in a color that doesn’t fit the palette, try the Kerry Denim Jacket in white.

If you’re looking for some sun protection on those shoulders, add the Blyth Knit Dress Shrug and keep with the all-white theme.
