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.
It is a must that you purchase comfy clothes like t-shirt dresses to reduce the chances of feeling squeezed or out of breath. Moreover, a t-shirt dress can be easy to wear and versatile. For a more relaxed look, you can pair it with sneakers and a cap. However, for a party look, you can cinch a belt to the waist and add some contrasting block heels. There are so many styling options for a t-shirt dress that can be affordable and elegant. All you need to do is search for a good quality t-shirt dress. For that, you can check out brands like Umgee Clothing, which are known to sell assorted contemporary apparel in an affordable price range.

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!
