Always a fan of relaxed but tasteful style, the T-shirt dress is one of my favorite summer trends. There are few more comfortable ways to get around in the summer months than in a soft, loose T-shirt. Whether it be a real t-shirt dress, or an overzised shirt that you've cleverly made into a dress, there are so many great ways to show off this trend.
This week's Fashionista goes for the classic-but-current nautical look with her white and blue striped T-shirt dress (from H&M) that she cinched at the waist with a simple gold chain belt. A belt like the one our Fashionista is wearing is a great partner to a T-shirt dress because it marks out the waistline and provides a more flattering silhouette. A well-chosen belt can also ensure that the T-shirt dress doesn't look so casual as to appear lazy or sloppy, which we want to avoid.
While popular favorites like H&M and Topshop carry different styles of t-shirt dresses, another great place to look is around your own house! You needn't look any further than your brother or father's closet to find a slightly oversized T-shirt (or even a large oxford shirt) that you can work into a stylish and original t-shirt dress.
