Gitta Banko at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin

Germany-based fashion blogger Gitta Banko sported a white statement T-shirt from the Lookabe x Blondwalk collection with a ruffled number by Dawid Tomaszewski at Mercedes-Benz Berlin Fashion Week Spring 2018. This is the standard version of the T-shirt-under-dress look and Gitta thankfully kept the accessories to a minimum, finishing her look with a Boy Chanel bag.

Junya Watanabe Spring 2019

Japanese fashion designer Junya Watanabe has always played with gender-based statements, and the brand's Paris Fashion Week Spring 2019 show was no different. Inspired by alternative culture, the collection featured the perfect T-shirt-under-dress ensemble for the coming season. The look included a basic white tee, a denim semi-dress and trousers. A total street style winner, this is also the next thing we want in our summer wardrobes.

Halsey Wearing Balmain in 2017

To everyone who ever doubted the party potential of the T-shirt-under-dress ensemble, we present this Halsey look. The singer attended Balmain's first Los Angeles boutique opening in the label's sequined bustier mini dress, which she paired with an casual black tee. We don't want to change a single thing about this look.

Sofya Benzakour of La Couleur Du Moment

Fashion blogger Sofya Benzakour's look is a lesson in layering. The dress-over-tee trend can be a fall or winter option if you get your layering right. Sofya is wearing a negligee-inspired dress, a white tee by ASOS, a Zara jacket and boots.

A.Niemeyer Spring 2019

Holiday wear label A.Niemeyer featured a boho-style ensemble as part of its Spring 2019 line. We love everything about the look, from the laid-back and easy color palette to the attention to silhouette.

The underdog of the layering world, the T-shirt under your dress, needs all of our attention this season.

While you may recall first seeing the trend on pages of Delia’s catalogs, it is not exactly a 90s creation, though it hit its street style stride in that decade. The pinafore, one of the sassiest ways to team up a tee and dress, has been chic since the 60s. A plaid pinafore with stockings paired with a collared white tee was the easiest way to give off Anna Karina vibes.

In the 90s, shirts under dresses were made iconic by stars like Jennifer Aniston and Drew Barrymore. In “Before Sunrise,” Julie Delpy made the look a go-to option for effortless chic.

But we’re talking about how far the standard shirt-under-dress combo has come. From Blanca Padilla’s leather pinafore to Kristen Stewart’s Chanel dress with a bandeau top underneath at Cannes, the style is emerging to be an all-season trend.

A standard tee under your slip dress can double as an off-duty errand uniform and prove to be a great brunch number. Spanish brand Delpozo made pinafore dresses a big part of its Fall 2018 collection during London Fashion Week. A particular denim piece in Junya Watanabe’s gender-bending Paris Fashion Week show acquired put a quirky spin on the classic white shirt and denim dress pairing by adding pants.

And though the runways are taking liberties with the look, T-shirts under dresses are accessible enough for everyday wear.
