Styling The T-Shirt Dress

A T-shirt dress is versatile, comfortable and an essential for all seasons. It can be dressed up or down very easily, suits just about every body shape and is probably the most wearable (and affordable) item you can add to your wardrobe!

I usually opt for shorter styles when selecting a T-shirt dress but when I received the Elevated Basic Dress by Bohemian Traders I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make the longer shape work on my short frame. I also love the cut out seams on the sides of this dress and slightly longer sleeves than are usually found on a T-shirt dress. All in all this dress is a total winner in my books.

The Shoe

I paired this dress with sneakers to stay in tune with the relaxed vibe and the white works really well with the grey colour palette - it is fresh and bright, perfect for Spring.

The Shape

I decided to belt it because otherwise I would be swamped under this denim jacket. If I was going without a jacket I would probably keep it un-belted and relaxed. Creating shape is important and I love that this dress has done most of the work for me - the rise in the side seams shows off some leg to add a nice silhouette and the fit is snug without hugging.

The Details

There is nothing quite like grey marle and silver so I added a statement necklace, a cuff bracelet and as always, loads of fine silver rings.

The Accessories

Stick to a simple, effortless bag such a clutch or cross body. An oversize bag will be to heavy with this free, easy style. An envelope clutch is perfect. The reflective silver shades tie all the silver together and make the whole thing pop. Nothing, I repeat, nothing makes grey marle pop like loads of silver and faded denim (I've been known to harp on about my love for silver and I ain't no quitter so I will say it again!).

Investing a T-shirt dress is a good idea because it can literally be worn anywhere - to brunch, to the park, traveling, out to dinner with a boot or heel. It really is an essential wardrobe basic! To shop this look click here.

Happy shopping, have a great weekend lovelies! x
