A great t-shirt dress is quintessential to any wardrobe. With its uncomplicated pullover design and loose, body skimming silhouette, they make getting dressed effortless. To help maximize your wardrobe, don’t be afraid to play with layers, textures and accessories. Whether you’re looking for a casual effect for the weekends, an office appropriate look for the day or dress it up for the evening, a classic t-shirt dress is the versatile piece your closet may be missing. By switching up your accessories, shoes, handbag and even jackets, a t-shirt dress can look completely different. Today, I’m sharing 5 ways to style a t-shirt dress for spring.
Give your favourite pair of jeans a break this season by rocking a t-shirt dress instead. Casual, comfortable, a t-shirt dress is just as comfy as your much-loved denim. If you want to play with denim, try it with a jean jacket. It’s the perfect layering piece, to not only add visual interest, but perfect for cool evenings or brisk springtime days. Toss on white kicks or even wedge sandals for an informal, laidback look.
Speaking of carefree and unfussy looks, a t-shirt dress is perfect for weekends. Try pairing it with block-heeled sandals for some height or keep it simple with flat open-toe sandals. Have fun accessorizing with minimal jewelry, oversized tote bags or even a statement watch. This instantly creates a playful and fun look without looking too fussy.
For evenings, switch out that tote bag for a smaller clutch and bolder accessories. Toss on a faux leather bomber for an effortless cool effect. Sparkly necklaces or shiny earrings add a touch of glam, while killer heels help to elongate the legs and elevate this otherwise casual look.
Blazers are the perfect layering piece when you want to look more polished. Whether that be a playful cropped blazer, a trendier oversize boyfriend style or a form-fitting classic one, all three cuts create a professional finish that’s still playful and fun.
Don’t be afraid to emphasis your waist with a belt. It creates the same effect that a blazer does, without having that extra layer of fabric. It instantly achieves that chic and sophisticated effect without having accessories too much. Of course, you can elevate the look by tossing on pumps or heels to add a touch of dressiness to the look.
