Everyone knows you're not supposed to wear white to a wedding unless you're the bride. It's also hard to wear white outside of nuptials without looking like you belong in a church. Especially when it comes to dresses designed for parties or special occasions. Celebrities like Hailey Bieber and Amal Clooney have been spotted sporting white dresses miraculously managing to do so without looking like they were missing veils. Proving that there are cool non-wedding white dresses out there.

It's a tricky balancing act, but there are key points to keep in mind. First, skip lace. Nothing says about to be married like lots of lace. Instead, opt for eyelet, laser detailing or crochet if texture is a must. Strategic ruffles and cutouts help add personality without coming across too formal.

Proper styling is another way to project non-wedding dress vibes. Wedges, flat sandals and ankle boots will keep you from looking like a bride-to-be. Throw in a raffia bag, even for an evening out, for a summer-ready ensemble.
