#OOTD – T-Shirt Dress in Black and White

6th June

T-shirt dress for spring

T-shirt dresses are on trend this season. And it makes sense. They’re easy, comfortable, and fun. For those days that are more breezy than warm, I add a pair of leggings and booties.

Who says we must dress in color just because the days are lighter? I love the flower motif of this Maison Margiela dress. It alludes to spring and summer – abstractly.

I’m carrying my new Furla bag EVERYWHERE!

And yes, I’ve been attempting to transition my wardrobe to one of brighter, lighter hues. But that doesn’t mean I’ll be turning my back on the chicest of all colors: black. And in combination with white, it’s a classic.

Tee dress

My LAST POST included an Emily Payne dress that seems to have been inspired by the t-shirt dress. I decided that I was very much in favor of t-shirt dresses after admiring them all over New York during fashion week last fall. (It was a scorcher!)

Flattering Features

Today’s t-shirt dress is more fitted, which makes it more ladylike, in my opinion. With a womanly lower body, I appreciate a more fitted tee dress, since I like to emphasize my waistline. Since I also prefer to de-emphasize my thighs, a slightly longer hem (at a narrower part of my legs) is even more flattering. Another way to get this effect is by wearing the same color of leggings – they lengthen the silhouette.

So Comfy

I have to admit that this outfit almost makes me feel guilty, it’s so comfortable. I mean, isn’t beauty supposed to include some form of pain? 😉 Seriously, everything is so stretchy that I feel like I’m wearing pajamas.

The leather booties and tote, however, lend it a bit of structure for contrast.

For a long time, I’ve been adverse to wearing plain (non-leather) leggings outside of yoga class. But I think that this outfit gives them a legitimate – and more importantly, stylish – purpose. What do you think?
