T Shirt Dresses

T shirt dresses are not simply just for casual occasions anymore.  This season, you’ll see t shirt dresses making a comeback for special occasions and even being worn by a number of celebrities.   The loose off the shoulder t shirt dress is certainly a popular style trend.  We love this trend because it is a great way to dress up something casual and yet still be comfortable.  The t shirt dress is something you really should consider including in your summer wardrobe.  Depending on the piece it can also work as a tunic top paired with leggings in colder weather too.

T shirt dresses can come in a variety of styles and fabrics giving you lots of options with a style that is seemingly straightforward.  Consider the Berta dress by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer.  This baby jersey cotton t shirt fabric is styled in a v neck with a tie around the waist.  This longer version of your essential v neck tee is a great staple piece for your summer dress wardrobe and is stylish while also being comfortable and easy to wear.  The tie around the waist really does give you added versatility and gives this dress a more fitted look than a loose t shirt.

Another great example of the t shirt dress is the Hunter Maldives Striped Dress also by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer.  This dress features an off center v neck on a striped t shirt dress.  The v neck has a contrasting navy trim against white.  This dress has a t shirt fit that is loose and can even fall a touch off the shoulder.   Another baby jersey cotton dress, this dress is also comfortable and easy to wear.  This dress is also perfect to wear as a tunic over navy leggings.

A dressier option that embodies a t shirt dress style is the Burca Scoopneck dress by Velvet.  This dress features a slinky rayon fabric which adds to the dressier style, and features a bold silver zipper down the back of this dress.  The style is looser at the top and more fitted at the waist giving it a flirty, sexy style while still remaining true to the t shirt dress style.

As you can see there are a number of different ways that t shirt dresses can be worn and in a variety of different fabrics.  With tunic tops and leggings also becoming so popular of late, the t shirt dress is really a variant of that trend and a great way to add versatility to your wardrobe.   Comfort is always something we consider when buying any item and especially dresses, so the t shirt dress is a welcome trend because it is such a great comfort piece.  No matter what your style, the t shirt dress is something that you should consider incorporating into your closet.  Truly there are so many different variations of the basic t shirt now found in a dress or tunic length top that you really can’t go wrong in finding at least one if not several of these pieces to layer into your wardrobe.

Pretty Spring Dresses

As the weather starts to turn, our fashion focus shifts to short sleeves, tank tops and of course pretty spring dresses.  This season there are a variety of great dresses that can be worn with a wrap during spring and solo during the summer.  Spring and summer dresses come in a variety of styles and with a variety of fabrics.  Of course for warm weather you will always want to consider lighter weight fabrics like cottons that wear well, are breathable and comfortable.

Velvet by Graham and Spencer is a large source of inspiration for us with great dresses primarily made of cottons or other lightweight fabrics.  One of our favorites is the Freda Dress and for spring and summer we wear it in gorgeous white.  With a flared skirt and a gathered waist line, this dress also features ¾ length sleeves and a deep v neck.  It really is a stunning dress and looks fabulous on.  Made of baby jersey cotton, this dress is machine washable and comfortable to wear which makes it a versatile piece for spring that can be dressed up for special occasions and dressed down for just a simple spring day dress.

Another wonderful spring dress is the Modal Jersey Scoop Neck Dress by Splendid.  The modal jersey is so soft and luxurious and it is a great complement to the ruffles around the scoop neckline and sleeves.  This dress is available in Mud, a light brown color, or Black and is a great go to dress for spring.  We love the pretty ruffles that are subtle, but really make the dress stand out.  The modal jersey fabric is amazingly soft and still machine washable so this dress is easy to wear for everyday and can be dressed up too.

One of our favorite classy and elegant dresses is the Wrap Dress by Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati.  This dress comes in basic black and features a faux wrap on the side.  With ruffled sleeves and a deep v neck, this dress is a super versatile piece because it can easily be dressed up for special occasions or to wear to the office.  It is the dressiest of the dresses mentioned in this article.

Finally, when you are looking for pretty spring dresses, we have to mention the Dita Ruffle V Neck Dress by Ella Moss.  This gorgeous dress exudes femininity and most certainly qualifies as pretty.  We love the deep v neck and the ruffles around the neckline.  With a flared skirt and an empire waist, this dress really has a gorgeous vintage style to it as well.

Of course, these dresses only scratch the surface of perfect dresses for spring, but in any case these dresses are a great representative sample of what is available for spring and what classic styles you can incorporate into your spring wardrobe.  Don’t forget the option of incorporating a great wrap or two to help keep you warm during cool spring nights.   Each of these dresses work well for different occasions and will be great additions to your closet.
