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.
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.
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!)
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.
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?
