T-shirt dresses take over

Normally the hottest looks modelled on the catwalks are a nightmare for us mere mortals to carry off, but there is a hot new look sweeping the world of style which guarantees both elegance and comfort – the T-shirt dress.
There are no Spanx or fancy corsets required, because this trend is loose fitting and hugely flattering. It suits all figure types, and comes in a variety of styles meaning you can select the one which best suits your shape and preferences.
One label which specialises in the sportier style of T-shirt dress is Lacoste. Their Spring/Summer 11 line had a charming range which would look as good on a tennis court as they would for a day out shopping with pals. Stand out pieces were the cute stripy ones in blue and white, perfect for making a nod to the nautical trend.
Phillip Lim offered a more demure and ladylike style T-shirt frock, and Tommy Hilfiger offered a typically preppy take on the aesthetic.
For ladies who are long and lean, there are a variety of these gowns available to suit your shape – although by adding a belt to your T-shirt dress you can create the illusion of curves. Voluptuous women should opt for tighter fitting types so that they don’t end up looking bigger than they really are.
Team these cute dresses with a pair of ballerina pumps or sneakers, as they are far too casual to be worn with heels.
