A mini white cotton dress is quintessential to the hot summer days. A white shirt dress especially can elevate your whole look and you’ll be 1000% ready for your night outs in the summer. Case in point: the Jacquemus La robe Bahia. This dress is exactly what I mean by ‘elevating’ the simple white summer dress look. Though I’m not sure where I first saw this dress, my love for it was definitely ignited when I saw Stephanie Shepherd on one of the episodes of KUWTK. I believe it was the girls trip episode with Kourtney where they went to Turks and Caicos. Girl looks amazing. I loved the dress on her and she pulled it off beautifully.
Anyways, if you have the €€€ to spend, I’d say go get your Jacquemus fix. But, if you are looking for a more affordable alternatives, I might have some options for you down below. Note that some of the links are affiliate links but I am in no way sponsored to write this article.

3. Pretty Little Thing’s White Plunge Knot Detail Shirt Dress 39.20€ (link)
This is one of the best dupes for the Jacquemus La Robe Bahia. The length is perfect for a mini dress and the knot detail in the middle is just so pretty. I haven’t seen this dress in real life so I can’t say anything about its quality, but it’s definitely not a bad alternative.
4. Pretty Little Thing’s White Midi Shirt Dress 39.20€ (link)
Not a fan of mini dresses? That’s fine, there’s also options for midi dresses like this one. It’s a similar style, but with an added length. I think it’s a super sleek white shirt dress and it can definitely be a winner for dinners and fancy drinks.
5. Emma Ellingsen x NA-KD’s White Draped Shirt Dress 56.95€ (link)
This is a slightly different ‘dupe’, but it’s definitely giving off a similar vibe to the Jacquemus’ sexy take on the white shirt dress. The draping on the front makes the dress super form flattering. And, though it’s a bit more covered, the dress looks like it clings quite close to your body and I think the form fittingness makes it a great dress for dinner and drinks in the summer. Honestly, I’d even wear this to work.
6. Pretty Little Thing’s Champagne Satin Ruched Shirt Dress 49.00€ (link)
I considered excluding this one because it’s not white. But, it’s too pretty to exclude. I love the tie detail in the front and how it looks from the back.

Whilst on vacation I took my trustee old white shirt attempted to recreate Jacquemus’ magic (not super perfect of course, his is amazing). This will do for now ♡
