Chic White Dresses Under $100 For Vacation

Affordable White Dresses

I don’t know about you all…but when I plan a trip, one of the first things I think about is…. wait for it… what am I going to wear?! I look forward to the occasion to wear different clothes almost as much as I look forward to the trip. I can visually picture myself in some fabulous, flowy dress, walking along the beach. It’s all part of the experience. One of the first things I look for when I’m heading to the beach… is an amazing white dress! This is NO easy feat, however. I find that white dresses are among the toughest to find. The fit and fabric has to be perfect! And, as you get older, you also want the length to be right too.

To help my own white dress hunt…and yours… I’ve rounded up over 15 white vacation dresses that are under $100! Some of these styles are on major sale and still fully stocked in all sizes! If you have an upcoming trip, grab these dresses before they’re gone!

#1 | Ruffled Dress

This sweet dress is from Mango. I love the eyelet detailing and fun ruffled top. I would edge this up with an amazing scarf in my hair and maybe strappy wedge sandals.

#2 | Geometric Midi

If you’re looking for something a little dressier, and MIDI length… this dress is great! It’s by L’Academie and it was originally $248 …but is now only $62! I shared one of my favorite white dresses by L’Academie in this post. It has gorgeous geometric detailing all over, buttons down the front and is a midi length. Wear it with strappy heels to dress it up or flat sandals to dress it down.

#3 | Casual Tunic

This dress is actually a tunic! I would wear it as a beach cover-up and throw it on for the beach to lunch transition. It’s perfect for wearing from the beach to lunch. Since it’s a tunic it might be shorter than you’d like. You can easily throw on some denim shorts underneath if you’re worried about it!

#4 | Embroidered Dress

I love the ruffled shoulders on this sweet dress! It’s a cute and casual sundress for the beach, running errands, or shopping. To give it a bit more polish and sophistication… add a white blazer over it.

#5 | Amuse Society Maxi

This dress has GORGEOUS white embroidery on the entire dress. I also love the ruffled trim and that it has an elastic waistband! The back of the dress has a pretty lace-up detail that’s also a nice touch!

#6 | Floral Dress

This feels so 60’s to me and I love it! Pair it with some round, retro white sunglasses and nude heels or mules. This one is embroidered with beautiful floral appliqué! I love the longer sleeve and square neckline. It’s also fully lined!

#7 | Back Buckle Dress

You can’t see it above, but if you click to shop this dress, you’ll see how cool the back of it is! It has a really fun buckle that’s gives the dress a little party in the back! 

#8 | Off The Shoulder Cover-Up Dress

This is a classic for the beach! It’s one of those dresses you can wear to the beach and then throw on a pair of sandals and head to lunch! It’s also one of the best-sellers among fashion bloggers.

#9 | Ruffle Strap Dress

This dress was originally $248 and is now on sale for $85! This dress has a flattering fit and flare silhouette, fun ruffled straps, subtle eyelet details, and a button front (there’s also a hidden back zipper). If you worry it’s too young or sweet… throw a lightweight leather jacket over it!

#10 | Flowy Maxi Dress

If you’re worried about hiding a tummy this dress is perfect! If you want more tips to hide your tummy, be sure to check out this post. I love this flowy look of this dress and the swiss dot fabric is beautiful. Find a more wintery white swiss dot dress in this post.

#11 | Cutout Dress

If you’re doing vacation with the hubby, why not pull out a sexy white dress!? This one has a fun and flirty cutout and bow front. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and sexy!

#12 | House Of Harlow Dress

I mean… isn’t this dress gorgeous? I love every detail…the ruffled hem, eyelet and crochet lace trim, flutter sleeves, flattering high waistline! House of Harlow dresses usually run closer to $200 but this one is only $93!

#13 | Ruffle Trim Dress

This dress is the same idea as #9 but it’s a little more simple. Grab this one for your daughter or niece if it feels too showy for you. 

#14 | Lace Dress

Remember this dress that blew up your Instagram feed last year?? It’s by ASTR The Label and PERFECT for your next trip! I love that the lining stops above the knee so you can really see the details of the lace. Wear this for dinner with some strappy heels… for a beautiful look!

#15 | Lace Trim Shirt Dress

I love the lace detailing on this shirt dress. But, more importantly… I LOVE the sleeves! Since it’s a shirt dress it’s a little boxier and more casual. It would look great with some sandals!

#16 | Linen Dress

Linen is my least favorite fabric because you always have to iron it, but I wanted to give you one linen dress option since it’s so cool. This linen dress is simple and beautiful. It’s also easy to dress up or down with a few accessories!
