Tee dresses can be found at any price point.  Below are examples of a budget tee dress, a moderate version and a splurge version.  The cuts are fairly similar and the main differences you’ll notice are in the fabric and details like seaming (the less expensive versions may have a seam down the back).

  • Topshop Kara flat
  • Armadio Diana handbag
  • Kendra Scott earrings
  • Kendra Scott Aiden necklace

A transitional look to take this dress into fall.  By adding boots and a cardigan, the look has changed completely.  The wine accents in the bag and scarf continue to bring a bit of that fall feel to the outfit.

Another fall/transition idea.  This time we’ve paired a short bootie with a very slightly cropped and flare-sleeved cable sweater over top the dress.

A dressier city look that would work for a business casual office.  Layer the dress over a slim pair of ponte pants (leggings would work too, although will feel a bit more casual).  The structured handbag, faux suede jacket and mixed stone jewelry add polish.

  1. I like the idea of layering the dress. I could wear this with leggings like you suggested and that would be great come this fall.
