T-Shirt Dresses

I saved the image of this yellow t-shirt dress by See by Chloe (from the Cruise collection) when it was still online a few months ago. It's bright, casual and looked like such a fun, easy-to-wear dress for the summer. I never managed to see it in real life but it got me looking out for tee shirt dresses.
I love the design of this Mr. Abbott dress. I don't quite love the pinkness of this dress, but it's such a cute design!
The design of this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress looks cute from the front but the hole at the back makes it not very practical for casual, everyday wear.
Urban Outfitters has these simple, short-sleeved dresses. They're even nice enough for a nice dinner or night out.
The other shirt dress I found on uo.com is this plaid shirt dress. The bubble shape at the bottom makes the dress feels less indie and more girly, which makes the dress easier to pull of because let's face it, not everyone can pull of plaid!
The black dress on Lily Donaldson looks like another versatile, day-to-night dress. I'll be looking out for this one on my next trip to H&M.
Another dress I'll be looking out for is this See by Chloe jersey dress. I really like the print on the top and I'm hoping to find it in this dress version, (although I'll be looking out for the t-shirt version too.)
During my search for t-shirt dresses I've noticed that it's much harder this summer than last summer to find them. It probably means that t-shirt dresses aren't 'in' anymore but they're just so cute and easy to wear! Plus, putting on shirt dresses is arguably even more brainless than a denim and t-shirt combo!

If shirt dresses aren't "in" anymore, I'm not sure I care. There is such simplicity and fashion seniority in the simple shirt dress. I've seen the best selections at H&M and UO recently. I'm thinking we can rock shirt dresses as it gets colder with high boots, chunky tights and leather jacket. - Kathleen @ theblackstiletto.blogspot.com

i really like the look of t-shirt dresses from the front but i feel like sometimes in the back they can be so clingy. it makes selecting undergarments extra difficult

T-Shirt dresses and Polo shirt dresses, they're the ultimate in comfort! I've found the best places to find T-shirt dresses is in the "SLEEP/LOUNGE" category of any store. They're super soft material and not made to be really tight. I'd wear a lose one with a low-sitting belt.

Here's one from the gap:

yeah t-shirt dresses are the best and so easy to wear. the only thing is it's sometimes hard to find ones that aren't too short and also that aren't see-through.

I think that it is really hard to find quality for not too expensive price.

Love them. They were big here in Australia last summer and I've got a feeling they will continue to be in for quite some time due to their versatility :) With our increasingly busy lives, fashion should be easy!

Hi there,

You hit the nail on the spot! I just purchased a tee shirt dress in charcoal colour on the internet the other day... i guess i was going for a colour in between black and white..so charcoal is the answer!

Cant wait for it in the mail... it should be arriving tomorrow! Tee shirt dresses are soooo comfy!

But im worried it might show off my slight tummy... what should i do to cover it up?....

Love: Adelene.

Love t-shirt dresses. I don't think something so effortless and versatile can go out of style - and if it does, I say who cares! Great compilation of pics here!

I love the dresses from UO and H&M. That long cardigan is so me! I want it! And those plaid tights are great too. I think tights and long cardigans are going to be my next fashion addiction.

I think t-shirt dresses are a great summer daywear option. Accessorized the right way, they make a great statement. EFashionLane.com has a lot of great casual and t-shirt dresses that fit in with this look.

i love these dresses, but it's hard to find ones that fit well if you're not thin.
