Trends like midi skirts and disco looks come and go, but if there’s one thing that’s always in style, it’s a good t-shirt… and when that shirt turns into a dress, then you know you’re onto something.

Chrissy Teigen has been spotted wearing the latest incarnation of the tee: the t-shirt maxi dress. It’s a genius style in its simplicity, ease and versatility. Here’s how to grab one and jazz it up for day, night and weekend:


Take a blank black canvas like this year-round soft tee dress and add some serious bling with crystal earrings, an embroidered clutch and sky-high magenta cage shoes.

Layering is the name of the game for the weekend, when you never know if it’s going to be freezing cold in the shade or sweltering in the sun. The belted vest is what makes the look here, and you can repurpose it for all sorts of casual, dressy and office looks. Add over-the-knee boots and cute accessories to complete the look.

This flirty hemmed dress can be worn with colored tights (try plum or navy!) if you need a little more coverage and something that pairs nicely with these gorgeous boots that are too good to be tucked up under jeans. A dose of fun jewelry and a work-ready tote will have your coworkers complimenting you left and right.
