Worried About Wearing White? These 13 Dresses Will Change Your Mind

Once spring arrives, there doesn’t seem to be an outing a crisp white frock doesn’t work for: beach day, brunch plans, wine night, spontaneous picnic (or rather, white wine night). Since the shade is versatile for both day and night, and there are silhouettes made for just about every body type, there's nothing stopping you from seeing just how many of these pieces your closet can fit.
While we’re still waiting for someone to create a stain-resistant white dress that works half as well as Old Navy’s new jeans, we’ll settle for foregoing any extra ketchup at lunch in favor of these fresh-as-the-weather options. Ahead, 13 pieces that'll make dressing this season a whole lot easier.
