Hi everyone, Welcome back to my blog!
I wanted to thank all of you for the positive feedback after my first blog post launched. Everyone had such great things to say and I really appreciate all the support.
Today I’m coming to you all from a place of love and obsession. T-shirt dresses. I literally can’t have enough of them. (TANK DRESSES ALSO). In all honesty, I only have 4 or 5, but if you looked at my wishlist on any of my favorite websites you’d see over 20 of them. I feel I had to make a post to persuade those of you that don’t have this cute must-have item in your closet to ABSOLUTELY get it. So let’s jump into this, here are a few reasons why tee/tank dresses are essential to your wardrobe:
1. You can dress them up or down
They’re perfect for every occasion, seriously. I wear them whenever I go out to the mall, on casual dates with my boyfriend, and to class in the morning. I even wore a tank dress to a job interview and dressed it up with a gold/brown color scheme. I’ve seen multiple youtubers and instagrammers rock t shirt dresses whenever they go out to fancy dinners just by adding some heels and a cute jacket! It’s also the perfect outfit item to use to go from day to night wear!
2. They’re extremely comfortable
I’m definitely not over-exaggerating when I say this. I could literally SLEEP in one of these dresses. Especially if you buy one that is good quality, the product will be so soft. Also, I’m an advocate for not having to wear pants because they can be really uncomfortable and sometimes your legs need to breathe!
3. You can wear them in any season
I know a tee/tank dress is short, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear it in the winter or the fall. (I live in Texas, so this may not be the best idea during a snow storm or in northern states). Even if you live in a cold climate, I’ve seen many people that wear thigh high boots and a beautiful trench coat with a dress of this type! For me, it’s such a nice and refreshing combination. I also think they look really cute with stockings, combat boots, and a nice oversized denim jacket for the fall.
4. They hide your food baby
As I mentioned in the first reason, I wear tee/tank dresses to go out on dates with my boyfriend. Most, if not all, of those dates include food (because that is my second obsession). Since these dresses are made to be very loose fitting, you can hide any food baby that you obtain after going out to eat, or any bloating if you’re just having one of those days.
5. They come in multiple styles and colors
I can’t stress enough the variety that is presented through such a simple item of clothing. You can literally go on a clothing website, search “t-shirt dress” or “tank dress” and find 20+ different types of the same thing. Some websites even have a subcategory for it. I know I’ve been super obsessed with a certain v-neck t shirt dress and a low back tank dress that I’ve spotted on a couple sites. Besides those two styles, you have your basic scoop neck and high neck dresses as well. Not to mention these dresses can also be long sleeve or 3/4 sleeve length. Lastly, the color variety is ENDLESS. The colors range from your basic white, black, and grey to shades of green, blues, yellows, and beautiful pinks/nudes (which are my personal favorite).
6. Perfect to throw on when you’re running late
As a college student, this tip means the most to me. I love my sleep. I treasure it like a mother treasures her newborn child. Sometimes I oversleep in the mornings and wake up with only a few minutes left until I need to be walking out of the door. I can’t stress enough how helpful it is to own one of these dresses. You can literally slip it on with some cute sandals or sneakers, a statement necklace or statement earrings, and be ready to go! To add something extra, you can always tie a plaid or denim shirt around your waist or add a choker for a 90’s vibe!
Here’s one last tip that doesn’t really fit into any of the categories, but I thought would be SUPER useful to a lot of you:
If you don’t mind wearing men’s clothing, check out the men’s section on clothing websites. You can find a lot of cute t-shirts that can be bought as an XL or XXL and be worn as a t-shirt dress! That option also tends to be cheaper depending on the type of shirt you buy (graphic tees tend to be more expensive than basic colored tees). Also, I just think it’s a bit comfier to rock an oversized men’s shirt compared to a dress, don’t you agree?
Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed this post!
