Wardrobe Essentials 101: The Plus Size Oversized T-Shirt Dress

With all the amazing choices in your wardrobe to dress up in, having something that you can just throw on and dress up or down with minimal effort is a total godsend. We’ve watched the fashion trends of the past two years support the comfy-chic dream, from athleisure to cute activewear sets, and now the baggy jeans over skinny jeans phase (sidenote: please don’t bring the low-rise back. We’re not ready for it). Loose clothing, or rather clothing that supports your dreams of being a remote worker from your couch has taken priority over tighter fits.

So, if you’re looking for something that you can rock around the house in, wear on your local iced-coffee run, and then seamlessly transition to a cute evening date, this is your sign to scoop up an oversized shirt dress for your wardrobe.

Plus Size Black T-Shirt Dress

We heard you were looking for something simple and versatile that you can throw on and dress up or down depending on the vibe. The plus size black t-shirt dress meets these criteria easily. Need something comfy to wear while you work from home? Grab our Plus Size Chain T-Shirt Dress and style it with a pair of flat sandals if you have to duck out to run some errands. The gold chain on the back gives it an edge – it turns it from a shirt you may have found on the floor of your room this morning to a legitimate, casual-chic ‘fit.

Heading out after work? No need to change. Switch out your shoes for a black strappy pair of heels, throw on some hoops, slip on a denim or faux leather cropped jacket and you’re good to go. The beauty of the black t-shirt dress is you can take it from casual I-woke-up-like-this to sexy oh-this-old-thing? vibes in the space of a minute.

Plaid Shirt Dresses

We would just like to point out that you don’t need to work on a farm or live in a small country town to absolutely slay in a plaid shirt. Although, this is definitely a vibe. Plaid shirts uphold a tradition of being a worker’s shirt and they have expanded into so many contexts over the decades. We love plaid shirts because they’re comfy and timeless. Slip a plaid shirt in your wardrobe and you never have to worry that it’s out of style.

So, why not go bold and rock a plaid shirt dress? If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that pants are entirely unnecessary. Grab our Plus Size Reworked Plaid Shirt Dress for the perfect blend of casual and sexy that you can wear to your local café to get work done. Got a hot date later? There’s no need to go home and change – just throw a pair of heels in your car, touch up your makeup and you’re good to go.

When it comes to fashion, let’s all sign the petition that you don’t need to compromise comfort for a chic ‘fit. You also don’t need to steal your partner’s shirt to get the oversized shirt aesthetic. Boyfriend not required.
