Ah, the T-shirt dress. Does anything embody the ease of ideal summer dressing better than this simple garment? At its core, the T-shirt dress is marked by its intensely simple silhouette — often made of cotton (like your favorite shirt) and ideal for tossing on and heading out. Today we celebrate this wardrobe staple with an edit of our favorites. It’s a mix of cotton standbys and also slightly dressier options — all with the same easy, breezy feeling that made us fall in love with this type of dress in the first place.
