EVERY GIRL NEEDS A SIMPLE T-SHIRT DRESS

A T-Shirt dress is one of those timeless wardrobe staples that can save you from the “I have nothing to wear” days. It needn’t be all black like mine, indeed I also have a cream & black breton striped one. Actually the striped T-Shirt dress is having a moment, I’ve seen a lot in street style photos lately in fact Whistles have just brought out this cute version.

They also come in various lengths so you’ll easily find something that works for your specific height. Sometimes I wear a skinny belt & other times I wear a wide one although I also like the loose, belt free look I’m styling for you today. It’s all about the soft jersey drape however if I feel the need for some shape I can tie my cardi or in this case my denim shirt, around my waist & hey presto SILHOUETTE!
I’ve found quite a few variations on length & colour for you to browse in case you don’t already have one because

Today’s T-Shirt dress from Whistles is a crew neck straight cut maxi length. Here is another gorgeous one they have at the moment, this time with the tied waist built into the dress. I love Whistles quality & attention to detail & my dress is no exception. The detail is in the form of a side slit & rolled sleeves giving this simple shape subtle added flair. The high quality modal fabric means I don’t get a saggy butt indentation from sitting. You know what I mean? Let’s face it my butt needs no extra sag heeheehee

T-Bar flats

Trainers or sneakers are the popular choice of footwear to pair with a t-shirt dress, I’m just not that into them. I prefer ballet flats, slides or flip flops – never heels with this look. Check out my pinterest fashion board for more inspiration & let me know what you think, Mx

    This is a nice version of a tee shirt dress; I love the Chanel shoes (SOOOO much love for those) with it; it keeps you firmly in chic land. I’ve been looking for a good denim top; I’m going to check out your links above. I have a denim dress, but no shirt. Lovely photos and lovely off duty look on you. xx

      Hi Liz, Chanel really does the best detail even a simple T-bar flat gets special little charms. Did you see Madam Chanel herself is on them?

    I really like the length of this dress, shorter t-shirt dresses can sometimes look a bit ‘teenage’ but this is a great, easy going look. x

      The midi length is exactly what drew me to it Nikki 😉
