During the summer, Los Angeles is an oven. It can be hard to walk to and from class without breaking a sweat. Because of this, I find that I get lazier and lazier each day when it comes to looking nice. Sometimes my go-to items include T-shirts and gym shorts. As summer finals come closer, this ensemble tends to become more and more of a trend. This Fashionista, however, stood apart from the rest of the crowd by demonstrating how a simple T-shirt dress can keep you cool in the heat while keeping you cute.
The Fashionista achieved fashion success by pairing a T-shirt dress with tan and pink diagonal stripes. The T-shirt dress is designed to keep a girl cool by being both short and relatively loose. The dress is mid-thigh high in length, and though it is loose it is tight enough to not look like a bag. As for accessories, the Fashionista kept her accessories very minimal and within the same color family. She paired her colorful T-shirt dress with a small brassy necklace. Her gray purse is my favorite item, because of its sleek and sophisticated appearance. It can easily be used for many different occasions other than class. As for shoes, the Fashionista chose grey sandals with gold detailing at the top.
To recreate this look, use the T-shirt dress as your main accessory and go for bold prints that make you stand out from the crowd. One example, is this T-shirt dress found on NASTY GAL featuring a tropical sunset. Or if you want a T-shirt dress that is much more simple yet bold, try finding neutral prints and colors such as those found in Nordstrom. There are many ways to accessorize or wear a T-shirt dress, but all create an underlying look: effortless.
