The J.Crew T-Shirt Dress We're Packing for Every Summer Trip

It's rare to stumble across the perfect dress—cute, comfortable, versatile, affordable—but when you do, there's only one step to take next: buy it in every color.

J.Crew's tiered dress in broken-in jersey is the polished, perfectly on-trend (has anyone else seen tiered dresses everywhere lately?) version of the classic t-shirt dress we've been waiting for. It's oversized but not too oversized (if you're debating between sizes, we recommend going down one), and the tiered bodice and ruffle sleeves give it the touch of style regular t-shirt dresses lack.


It comes in white, weathered rose (light pink), light mint, navy, and black. We can see you in white on a sailboat off of Mykonos; navy enjoying a lobster roll lunch in New England; black heading from Manhattan to the Hamptons; pink strolling through Savannah; and mint picnicking in London's Hyde Park. Can't you?

Pair it with your favorite white sneakers, or dress it up with a pretty pair of sandals or even heels for a daytime party this summer. One of the best parts is, it looks cute with a sweater, light jacket, or even crew-neck sweatshirt thrown over it (we've tried it all), so you can layer up and wear it from the start of spring into fall.

Machine-washable and made of cotton, it's almost too easy. You'll want to wear it out, at home, and even on travel days. That, friends, is what we call a true suitcase staple.
