Summer day dresses: The go-to T-shirt dress

To instantly convey an easygoing attitude, try a T-shirt style dress with sporty stripes.

Your summer day dress check list:

  1. Whether fitted or loose, a stretch fabric is essential for an off-duty dress you don’t have to think about. Underneath it all, stick to what’s fuss-free.  Maximize the appearance of clean lines by choosing seamless shorts.
  2. Sporting a pair of chic sneakers makes any day better. Look for styles that boast a formula that’s two parts old-school, one part new, like this low-cut, white pair spliced with neon.
  3. Two unisex classics are better than one. Allow a denim jacket and woven fedora to join forces and you’ll instantly pull an outfit together, secure a relaxed look and be prepared for transitional weather.

Here are more (party) dresses you’ll live for this summer.
