Fashion Trend Report: T-Shirt Dresses

Less buttoned-up than their collared counterparts, T-shirt dresses are changing the way we wear our favorite basic.

During the past few seasons, designers have been busy breathing new life into casual wear. The way we dress for weekend days brunching at our favorite local spots or exploring new cities has been redefined by new and updated closet basics. It started with slouchy pants and fashion sneakers, and now we're looking to incorporate T-shirt dresses into our wardrobes.

Stylish and easy to wear, T-shirt dresses are becoming a go-to for comfort-lovers who also crave style. They're a one-step dressing solution for days when time or patience is in short supply.

Arbiters of cool-girl fashion such as Amy Smilovic of Tibi, Rebecca Minkoff and Alexander Wang all sent T-shirt dresses down their runways during Spring 2014 Fashion Week.

Celebs are getting in on the trend, too. Diane Kruger wore a leopard-print T-shirt dress  with cap sleeves for a quick shopping trip in Beverly Hills, California, while Taylor Swift sported all black for a day in New York City. Sarah Hyland took the trend in a dressy direction, choosing a sequin T-shirt dress for the Glamour Women of the Year Awards.
