It seems that the comfort we sought from clothes during the last year is still not something we are willing to give up. We have gotten used to the idea of comfort as something that is non-negotiable; where we once spent hours deciding on an outfit, we now want something that we can throw on, know it looks good, and not feel restricted in any way. Take t-shirt dresses as a prime example: the trend hasn’t suddenly popped up out of nowhere, rather it is being catapulted into the must-have league due to its low maintenance yet chic appeal.
Of course, it helps that the humble t-shirt dress has been given a Mary-Kate and Ashley update by way of their brand The Row, which released one of the most coveted t-shirt dresses of the season. Humble yet sophisticated, the t-shirt (and by extension, the t-shirt dress) has always been a capsule wardrobe staple, injecting your edit with refined elegance. Now, the trend has been taken over by the likes of Cos and Arket leading the way with their dressed-down Scandi aesthetic, while Alice and Olivia’s iteration is brighter, making an exciting entrance into the world of tie-dye.
Fashionable and practical, the t-shirt dress really speaks for itself. Here you can find multiple iterations cut to different lengths and in different colours and patterns, proving that this trend wants to get everyone involved. Style yours with your favourite chunky sandals for a classic off-duty look, or perhaps dress it down with trainers and a bucket hat for days in the city. When the weather turns, try pairing it with knee high boots and a leather jacket for an easy transitional look. However you style it, this throw-on piece is sure to become your summer go-to, because what is summer if not the perfect time for comfort and style?
