In college, T-shirts are considered the holy grail of clothing items. Since they can be worn virtually anywhere, they run almost as notorious as Lindsay Lohan and her oversized sunglasses, but not quiet as prominent as Lady Gaga and her art-inspired (or meat-inspired) ensembles. Whether you wear them to the library, class or dinner, you can bet almost any student has drawers stuffed to the brim with T-shirts.

When I saw this Fashionista effortlessly pulling off the trend of T-shirt dresses, I couldn’t help but acknowledge how perfect this article of clothing is for college-aged females. It’s a simple way to dress up your outfit while maintaining the practicality and comfort of a basic shirt. She matched her striped dress with a charmed choker and nude sandals to wear while walking around the mall. This outfit is versatile enough to be worn during the day while seamlessly transitioning into a dinnertime look. Her blue purse adds a pop of color to this otherwise neutral outfit, which is just one of many ways to enhance this black-and-white dress. While this Fashionista incorporated color through her purse, another way to maintain the outfit’s casual vibe while adding color is with comfortable sneakers. However, you can also dress it up with a pair of wedge boots.

Regardless of where you live, you don’t have to let the weather stop you from rocking a dress during winter. Pair your T-shirt dress with sheer black tights and an army green jacket to maintain warmth without sacrificing style. In any season, you can swap your over worn and over washed frat tanks with a T-shirt dress to pull of a subtly stylish appearance.
