Anything But Basic - 3 ways to style a t-shirt dress

July 29, 2019

Everybody's got one: that basic, slouchy t-shirt dress that's perfect for those days when you just can't even. Throw it on - voila! Instant outfit. No fuss. But everyone knows that putting on a t-shirt rarely makes any kind of statement, and never an interesting outfit. What if we told you there were a multitude of ways to style that t-shirt dress that are just as easy and require little-to-no effort to spice up those lazy days? Read on for three of our favorite simple summertime looks.

1. Simple & Sporty

First, layer your dress with a cool flannel (we're partial to plaid) by tying it around your waist. Pro tip: if your shirt is thicker, buttoning it up before you tie it helps to reduce bulk and keep things from looking bulky. Then add a "dad hat" in a contrasting color. There are so many cute tutorials out there with ideas for how to wear your hair with a ball cap, no matter what length/style/color you're rocking lately. Finally, a pair of crisp kicks–like Keds, Vans, Converse, or Adidas Superstars add the finishing touch for the perfect casual outfit!

2. Truly Timeless

Look, if you don't have a jean jacket in your closet already, what are you even doing? You don't even have to drop much moola–swing by your local thrift store and you're sure to find something that suits. A++ for sustainable shopping! Top this look off with a trendy hat, like a straw boater or a fedora–you really can't go wrong!

3. Beautifully Breezy

Be the queen of cool this summer by knotting up the hem of a maxi t-shirt dress, tossing on a breezy printed kimono (we promise you'll look like you just stepped off a cruise ship), and buckling up your favorite pair of wedges. Don't forget a fresh pedicure!
