The Little White Dress Is The Fashion Trend To Have On Your Radar For Spring 2024

With Spring/Summer 2024 fashion weeks in full swing, plenty of fashion trends are already setting the course for our spring wardrobes. And when it comes to this season's big standouts for designers, the little white dress is at the top. 

While we're used to seeing the little black dress, or LBD, as the go-to for any formal or party event, the white dress sets the tone for 2024. Despite the word "little" in the trend's title, both mini and maxi lengths are welcome, making it versatile and accessible for anyone. There is no need to worry about complex details — the only requirement for this trend is that the dress is white (hence its name).

During the Spring/Summer 2024 shows, designers like Michael Kors and Khaite showcased their takes on the white dress and showed that it's up for interpretation. By keeping on theme with the existing quiet luxury trend, white in fashion is known for being flexible enough to be a polished or casual option. As one of the most essential neutral hues, white dresses will surely be your favorite spring item.

Mini dresses

The mini dress is a classic for the warmer seasons, especially as the weather changes. For Spring 2024, you'll want to start romanticizing your warm-weather activities, and the white dress is the perfect piece to wear. Like the one shown during Michael Kors's Spring/Summer 2024 show, a sweet lace mini dress is ideal for frolicking all season long.


Cutouts were the breakout star of 2023 — and that's set to continue in 2024. Even for the most modest fashion lover, cutouts can be as subtle or statement as you wish them to be. On the other hand, Diesel's Spring/Summer 2024 collection showcased stellar cutout white dresses for those looking for a bold and unique look.

Slip dresses

The versatile slip dress is no stranger to current trends, as it's become almost a must-have for any wardrobe. For Spring 2024, designers have given the white slip dress the spotlight, and it's shaping up to be one of the most trendy pieces of the season. Brands like Palomo Spain created white slip dresses that are very different from any you've seen. By mixing in sheer pieces with accents, there are many ways to transform this '90s piece into a modern item.

The maxi

Maxi lengths were everywhere in 2023, from denim maxi skirts to dresses. This longer length will continue to rule the fashion world this spring, which was proven all over the runway. While we're used to seeing maxi dresses in overwhelming silhouettes, Jason Wu's Spring/Summer 2024 showcased very polished and sophisticated white dresses that were anything but plain (via FF Channel).

Printed white dresses

Just because white is taking over our spring closet doesn't mean we can't add some flair. Printed white dresses were also on display during fashion week, giving relief to maximalists looking for something with more busyness. Designers like Prabal Gurung showed us that printed white dresses don't need to be casual or gimmicky and can also be elegant, sophisticated options for the spring.

Shirt dresses

One common theme of fashion trends in 2023 was practical minimalism. Versatile pieces were must-haves as we focused on building capsule wardrobes over trendy pieces. One of these pieces, shirtdresses, was one of the favorites of designers looking to continue this trend. White shirt dresses are the perfect base for any wardrobe, as you can wear them alone or layered with pops of color. Carolina Herrera Spring/Summer 2024 showcased the versatility of the white shirtdress, making it your new must-have for next year.

Sheer gowns

Another stellar trend of 2023, sheer clothing, is making its reappearance next spring. White sheer dresses come in many forms, from lace to crochet pieces. Designers like Alberta Ferretti took the white sheer dress and created many looks that range from statement pieces to everyday ensembles. Long story short: There's no need to continue avoiding sheer clothing, as it's becoming more embedded in our daily wardrobes.

Asymmetrical dresses

While white dresses of all lengths are welcome in our spring closets, another less common length is trending. Asymmetrical white dresses are the newest variation of the white dress that gives a more bohemian feel to our seasonal wardrobe. JW Anderson inspired us by showcasing asymmetrical dresses, proving just how versatile this piece makes our casual and polished looks for the spring.
