A T-shirt dress is an effortless, chic staple come spring and summer. They rarely need to be ironed, are perfect for travel, and the cotton fabric makes them breathable and very comfortable to wear. Most have short sleeves, ideal for many women over 50 looking for some arm coverage. You can dress them up with jewelry and a belt, or keep your look simple and casual. T-shirt dresses also look great with a denim jacket tied around your waist or with a sweater draped over your shoulders. Add a pair of sneakers if you have errands to run, or a pair of wedges for a night out.

This season, we are seeing T-shirt dresses in fresh silhouettes, including lots of tiered styles. Shorter dresses are ideal for petite BA50’s or those who are happy to show off some leg. Midi and maxi styles offer more coverage and look especially on-trend right now. If you are on the busty side and want to try the tiered trend, look for ruffles only on the bottom of the dress. GAP has several T-shirt styles that also come in petite and tall sizing so you can find your perfect fit, plus they are 40% off through 5/1. Read on for my top pics for T-shirt dresses to make getting dressed this spring and summer oh-so-easy.
