Noticed: Summer Dresses Over Fitted Tees


With the ’90s firmly gripping our cultural barometer, we’ve noticed a few stylish nostalgists embracing one of our very favorite throwbacks: fitted tees under flowy dresses. When done right, a simple T-shirt can push a dress into a totally new direction.

The best pairings we’ve seen involve neutral-colored crewneck tees and a delicate slip dress or a simple shift style. Over a lightweight tee, silk feels a bit more casual; a tomboy tank dress becomes a bit more feminine over a cap-sleeve shirt (especially when the sleeve hits that perfect, arm-whittling sweet spot). An unexpected twist with wardrobe-altering possibilities.
