Pay Attention To Silhouette

Are you looking for something form-fitting, or something loose and relaxed? It all depends on your personal preference! We say if you’ve got it, flaunt it! …Buuuuuut there is something to be said for leaving it to the imagination, too. Ugh, so many choices! Guess you’ll just have to try it both ways. :))

Pair With The Right Outerwear

This is where a lot of the versatility of T-shirt dresses comes into play. Having the right jacket, blazer, or flannel makes allllll the difference when it comes to looking polished and expressing your personal style. 

Remember what we said about silhouette? Outerwear is a great opportunity to balance your silhouette. Try a boxy T-shirt dress with a flannel tie to accentuate your waist, or a fitted T-shirt dress with a relaxed blazer. The options are endless!!!

Mix Up The Prints and Colors

T-shirt dresses come with so many possibilities for colors and prints. Try a striped T-shirt dress with solid outerwear, or a solid color T-shirt dress with a printed jacket or trench coat. Mix and match till you get THE LOOK you’re looking for!

Experiment With Different Shoes

The best thing about T-shirt dresses? Your shoe options are INFINITE. Seriously, we can’t think of a shoe that we couldn’t style with the right T-shirt dress. Sandals? Check. Sneakers? Check. Boots? Check, check, check! 

So how do you decide? That depends on your vibe. Trying to dress it up? Heels might be the way to go. Keeping it casual? Sneakers would look sporty spice with your T-shirt dress! 

Little hack for you: Sandals and boots can work casually or for fancier occasions. It all depends on how you style!
