A great t-shirt dress is quintessential to any wardrobe.
With their uncomplicated pullover design and loose, body skimming silhouette, there are endless possibilities when it comes to styling t-shirt dresses. To maximize your wardrobe, we made our Everyday T-Shirt Dress with two different necklines, so it’s fully reversible! Choose between a boat neck or scoop neck. Want to keep it casual during the day and dress it up for the night? No problem - just reverse the neckline, change up your accessories and go.
There are so many t-shirt dress styles out there, but finding one that’s not too short, a flattering silhouette that’s not too boxy and not too tight, and is ethically and sustainably made is easier said than done. We made our t-shirt dress long enough to give you full coverage, and even added pockets. Ethically-made in Canada from a sustainable, breathable bamboo blend fabric, we made sure our Everyday T-Shirt checked all the boxes. Take a look at the t-shirt dress outfit ideas below to get inspired for how to wear a t-shirt dress.
Weekday T-Shirt Dress StyleTo style the Everyday T-Shirt Dress as a summer work-ready look, it’s all about the accessories and shoes you pair it with. Try pairing the t-shirt dress with a block-heeled sandal and add a blazer for a professional finish. Not into patterned blazers? Our Unblazer is a classic boyfriend fit blazer made from a soft, stretchy bamboo blend fabric, so you can dress up your look and keep comfy. Accessorize with minimal gold or silver jewelry, an oversized tote bag, plus your favourite watch and you’re ready to get down to business.Evening T-Shirt Dress StyleTo take this from day to night, switch out the tote for a smaller bag like a clutch or bucket bag, and lose the blazer for a patio perfect outfit.Weekend T-Shirt Dress StyleFor weekend adventures, we paired the Everyday T-Shirt Dress with a button up top left open and unbuttoned. We love a striped button-up in the summer and a plaid flannel when it gets cooler. Layer on your favourite necklaces and a tote to hold all your weekend essentials.
Weekday T-Shirt Dress StyleIn the early days of Fall, try layering over the Everyday T-Shirt Dress with your favourite jacket like a trench coat or moto jacket. Slide on a pair of bold heels and you have a fun work look.
Evening T-Shirt Dress StyleWear the t-shirt dress on its own with a clutch and a pair of heels. We opted for a pair of flats that’s comfortable enough to get you from your favourite restaurant to wherever you need to be next. On a cooler night, throw on a pair of tights and a pair of dressy ankle boots. Dress up your day to night look by switching your daily stud earrings with statement earrings.
Weekend T-Shirt Dress StyleLayer well with a thin knit sweater or if the weather is pretty cold, a thicker sweater like our Dressy Sweatshirt which contains merino wool to keep you extra cozy. Add a pair of tights, and the ankle boot of your choice. This look also works well with a higher riding boot. Finish the look with a scarf (our Chrysalis Cardi worn as a infinity scarf works great!) to add a little colour for a cozy weekend look.
