A classic white dinnerware set is a must-have in every kitchen. These are the dinner plates you pull out for a casual weeknight meal, and also the ones you reach for on holidays and accent with festive napkins and a colorful tablecloth. They're so versatile, they go from pizza night to elegant dinner date and look equally at-home in both scenarios. The key is to pick a white plate that can stand the test of time, yet still suits your personal style. By avoiding too-trendy accents and of-the-moment colors, these become timeless pieces you'll keep for years to come. Check out some of our favorite white dinner plates, below, all guaranteed to age gracefully.
