Dresses are the ultimate summer wardrobe solution but when it comes to easy dressing, one style reigns supreme. The t-shirt dress.

What is a t-shirt dress?

A must-have for every summer wardrobe – t-shirt dresses for women are simply t-shirt-styled dresses. Often slim or loose fit, with the length sitting just above the knee, a t-shirt dress is the perfect garment to dress both up and down. From t-shirt dresses with pockets to cotton t-shirt dresses, and even long sleeve t-shirt dresses, the options really are endless!

Why do we love Joules t-shirt dresses?

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.

How to wear a t-shirt dress

The streamlined shape oozes wearability, with a neat silhouette that holds enough clout worn alone but then comes to life in seconds once layered with jewellery or cinched in with a belt. For those cooler summer evenings try an unbuttoned utility shirt dress with a fine pastel knit or lightweight jacket on top.

Choose a black T-shirt dress for a comfortable workwear option and pair it with leggings or tights and a lightweight blazer to achieve a formal yet relaxed look. Short sleeve jersey dresses also make a great alternative to a traditional summer dress, perfect for trips to the beach, summer walks and garden parties. As well as being bang on trend, oversized T-shirt dresses are super cool and breezy and come in a range of floral patterns and bright colours, ideal for summer.

What shoes to wear with a t-shirt dress

You can go as casual or as dressy as you like with a t-shirt dress, the vibe you’re going for will depend on the footwear you choose. Trainers and pumps are perfect for achieving a laid-back, comfortable and chic look. If you’re away on your jollies opt for sandals or flip flops to pair with your summer t-shirt dresses and head to the beach in style. Finally, to dress up a t-shirt dress slip on a pair of heels and prepare to make an impression, whether you’re a wedge kind of girl or a sucker for a heeled boot, choosing your outfit for a night out just got a whole lot easier.

The t-shirt dress is 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?
