That Old Feeling
I love a good men’s shirt/dress. I haven’t worn one on my blog in a while, so here it is, again, the (men’s) t-shirt ‘dress’. So comfortable. So casual. So cool.
Of course not every man’s shirt can be turned into a dress and t-shirt are actually the hardest to pull-off (the easiest is a dress shirt). So here are a few things to look for when shopping for the perfect (men’s) t-shirt ‘dress’.
1. Not white! T-shirts are rarely thick enough and thus white ones tend to be a tad see-through. This is fine for a bra… not so fine for your underwear.
2. This particular one has a very exaggerated high/low hem but they actually help a lot! It’s almost impossible to find a normal hemmed t-shirt that is long enough to cover you but doesn’t make you look like you just borrowed Andre the Giant’s t-shirt. High/low hems allow you to get a smaller size (so it fits everywhere else better).
3. Little details to distinguish this as a t-shirt ‘dress’ and not a t-shirt you should be wearing as a pyjama. This one has a subtle stone-wash, rolled sleeves and a pocket detailing.
Those are my tips for shopping. A styling trip that often helps with the t-shirt dress’s general lack of shape: a belt. It can create a waist if you’d like. I chose to use a CK sweatshirt instead, plus it was needed later that night when it got a bit chilly.
I would normally grab a pair of chucks (which totally would have worked with this outfit) but today I wanted a slightly elevated look so I added a sleek heel. I love the cut out detail and chunky heel makes it way easier to walk. I forgot how awesome heels make your legs look. I’ve been perusing through myshoebazar.com and it has me itching to grow my heel collection even further.
