I love a good t-shirt dress, and this dress from Bench had my name written all over it. It’s flowy, comfortable, lightweight and has oversized pockets, which makes it fun. This dress is also incredibly versatile and easy to style. I’ve worn it to the office, as well as to run errands. You can dress it up or down, depending on where you’re off to and how you choose to accessorize.
At this time of year, you want to make sure any item of clothing that you buy (especially when you pay full price) can be worn now, as well as into the fall. If you’re getting tired of your summer clothes and want to add a new piece or two into your wardrobe, consider the t-shirt dress.

Whether or not any of us want to admit it, we’re getting closer to the end of the summer. Aside from the fact that the selection of summer clothing is pretty picked over, it seems silly to buy shorts and tank tops, when before we know it, the temperatures will cool down. It makes me sad just typing that, but it’s true! Nonetheless, this is why I love to play with transitional pieces, like the t-shirt dress.
This t-shirt dress from Bench is the perfect transitional piece. It’s stylish enough that on those hot, sticky days, you can throw it on with a cute pair of sandals (similar to this outfit) and head out the door. If you’re heading into the office, add a scarf, since most offices are freezing. Come early fall, try pairing your t-shirt dress with a leather jacket or even a bomber jacket. By adding an extra layer or two, you’ll be able to wear any t-shirt dress well into pumpkin spice latte season. I promise!
In case you’re looking to do a bit of shopping, I’ve rounded up some more t-shirt dresses (all under $100) that you can wear now and later.
