I'm a creature of habit and love to look chic in something that is also incredibly comfortable and oh-so-quick to throw on! Few pieces offer the versatility and comfort of a t-shirt dress all year round, but especially as we get into the hottest days of summer. Whether you're aiming for a laid-back weekend vibe or a more elevated look, there are endless ways to master the art of styling a t-shirt dress. From accessorizing to layering, you have the tools to dress a simple t-shirt dress up or down and style it for wherever your plans take you. Whether casual or dressed-up, this simple piece has the ability to look effortlessly chic (like you weren't even trying). Here are some amazing ways to style t-shirt dresses of different colors, lengths, and styles.

Maxi T-Shirt Dress

Sofia Richie Grainge pulls together an effortless look in her white t-shirt dress. The perfect length to style with neutral boots and a chic belt, she accessorizes it to perfection. This is a great way to style a t-shirt dress for brunch dates or days when you want to be comfortable while looking chic.

Feminine Look

Another great way to elevate a t-shirt dress is to choose a silhouette with a flirty shape. Paired with heels and statement jewelry, you could wear this to a dressy occasion like a bridal shower without anyone realizing you are actually wearing a t-shirt dress!

Monochromatic Style

For summer days in the city, you can't beat this monochromatic look. This t-shirt dress is such a chic shape with its slightly longer sleeves and midi-length. Paired with different accessories like those perfect summer sandals, chic bags, and fresh sunglasses and it's all you need.

Everyday Look

Taking a simple short t-shirt dress and wearing it with a pair of sneakers and a denim jacket is a great way to style for a casual day on-the-go. You can also add a baseball cap or a belt bag for additional versatility to this casual look.

Oversized Tee

Take an oversized tee (perhaps borrowed from the boys) and pair with boots, sneakers, or sandals depending on the weather. Add sunglasses and you have the most simple, chic look to run out the door!

Just Add a Shirt

Take a simple t-shirt dress and add a button down shirt to it for a French-chic way to style it. Pair with your favorite Birkenstocks and you have a really simple, elevated look.

Get Graphic

Take your favorite oversized graphic tee and add sandals & sunnies for a fun summer look. (You can always throw some short denim cutoffs with it if it's a tad too short!)
