Today we arrive London to begin our European adventure! So exciting! We will be touring Buckingham Palace tomorrow. I’ll be posting some snaps on Instagram throughout my trip so be sure to check it out and say HI! 😀 During my absence, I have some amazing ladies taking over for me.
Today I’d like to introduce you to Rachel from Garay Treasures. She is truly an amazing soul and is going to show you how to style a t-shirt dress two different ways. Love it! <3
My name is Rachel and I blog over at Garay Treasures, and I am honored to be guest posting for Lizzie today. I am a fashion and lifestyle blog that mixes fashion, my daily life and my love for the Lord Jesus Christ. I blog because I have a passion to inspire and be inspired myself. Through my blog and meeting so many people who inspire me I have felt truly blessed. Lizzie has been one of those bloggers I turn to for style inspiration, collaborations and even just to chat. I thank Lizzie for having me today as I share with you how to dress up or dress down at t- shirt dress.
T-Shirt dresses are a new staple in my wardrobe and the one I am styling in particular today is one I tend to dress up, however I have found that it can be dressed down as well. For my first look you can see I dressed it up, using similar if not more vibrant colors. This particular dressed up look has gotten lots of compliments and has been featured in blog land a time or two. Dressing up a plain dress, especially a t-shirt dress can do wonders.
You can see I focused on statement accessories and vibrant colors to make the pastel pink color of the dress stand out even more. I am short (about 5’4) and I find that wearing heels not only makes me look taller but can really help with dressing up any look.
Other ideas for dressing up a t- shirt dress:
- Wear a blazer, denim jacket or cardigan in a vibrant color/or patterned one even
- Layer on a pleated or tutu skirt
- Style hair (think dutch or fishtail braid), or floppy hats.

To challenge myself to dressing down the same t-shirt dress I focused on more casual pieces. In my mind I thought of staple summer pieces or vacation pieces and a straw hat and sandals came to mind.
My accessories are more toned down but comfortable and give the dress a leisure look.
Other ideas for styling a t-shirt dress down:
- Style with converse shoes, gladiator shoes, flip flips or ankle booties
- Wear a chambray top or tie it around the waist.
- Denim vest layered over
- Straw or fedora hats
