T-Shirt Dress


Wardrobe Staple: The T-Shirt Dress

80+ temperatures are now here in my neck of the woods, and that means that I’ve put away most of my heavy sweaters into storage (aka the bottom of my husband’s closet) and brought out some of my favorite warm weather clothing. Over the years I’ve found that there’s nothing more comfortable (or easier to pack when traveling to hot places) than t-shirt dresses. I love them! Wear them alone or slap on a belt, and you’re done. My favorite C&C versions outlined in this post are wearing thin many washes and two years later, and so this summer I’ll be looking to re-stock.


So far, I’ve identified a few candidates, including a navy Splendid maxi or a black Alexander Wang drapey short sleeved dress. and What I really have my eye on though, is this number below.

This particular dress is perfect (the cut! the slightly longer back! the silhouette!) in my opinion, except for the price – $250 which to me is pretty reasonable for let’s say, a cocktail dress, but on the high side for a cotton everyday dress. Except, this dress seems that it may be the so-called unicorn of t-shirt dresses that has so far eluded me – the excellent white version that is not see through. That last part is so important, yet every white t-shirt dress I’ve tried on to date has failed. Why?

Anyway, while I ponder finding the perfect white t-shirt dress, I’ll leave you with a few of my favorite t-shirt dress inspiration photos, below.
