T-shirt dresses are the perfect way to transition from the last warm days of the Indian summer to the frostier ones of late fall. As the mercury starts to drop, layers are critical to staving off the chill, and these shifty little numbers are an ideal way to start piling on. These versatile wardrobe essentials can be thrown over leggings or tights and can easily go from casual daywear to a more dressy evening look, depending what you pair it with.
This week’s Fashionista is a great example of how to make a T-shirt dress cold weather wearable. Her dark gray sweater tights complement her neutral-toned shift. She cinched her top with a leather belt to create a little shape and the shiny brass buckle adds just the right amount of shine to her look. Perhaps one of the best parts of her outfit is her boots. Lovely leather lace-ups that are as functional as they are fabulous, they are look good with just about anything. Keeping things casual, she has thrown on a gray zip-up hooded sweatshirt to stave off the cold. Her whole outfit is kept together by the neutral color palette, which suits the season.
To try this look for yourself, check out American Apparel’s great variety of T-shirt dresses. The site is also a one stop shop for other layering pieces such as sweatshirts, leggings and tights. As for footwear, I am in love with these boots by Steve Madden.
