Why The T-shirt Dress Is Our Everything This Summer

21st June 2016

Dresses are the ultimate summer wardrobe solution but when it comes to easy dressing one style reigns supreme.

Ask any woman- professional, busy mum, fashionista, jet setter or sporty type – what they love about the humble t-shirt dress and they’ll probably tell you one thing: comfort. We think there’s more to this perennial wardrobe superhero though.

The streamlined shape oozes wearability, with a neat silhouette that holds enough clout worn alone but then comes to life in seconds once layered and belted. Try an unbuttoned utility shirt; fine pastel knit or lightweight jacket on top.

“I like them for their almost boyish ease,” says fashion stylist and self-confessed t-shirt addict Candice Bailey. “I love oversized shapes – men’s proportions, as they feel really effortless and easy. I’d always style a t-shirt dress back with a classic trainer. Or add a tough edge with a chunky sandal.”

You can’t beat the easy to wear appeal of this wardrobe gem. Joules Social Media and PR Assistant Phylli Vostanis agrees, “The t-shirt dress is the epitome of easy, with a little high/low tweaking, it’s the one piece in my wardrobe that looks on point no matter what the occasion. I pull out my best sunglasses and flats for daytime and then dress it up with heels and a trophy necklace for night.”

The Riviera dress in an array of stripes and florals is made from the same, high quality 100% cotton jersey as our best-loved Harbour top; it’s an all-year-round winner. Once the summer’s over (if it ever starts) you’ll get way more mileage when it becomes a cosy winter piece. A stash of long sleeve tops to pop under and a chunky woolen cardigan will soon see to that.

Let’s just round up this t-shirt dress tribute with a mention about how ridiculously flattering it is, figure skimming and elongating. Your new best friend.

Is the t-shirt dress a staple in your summer wardrobe?
