The ultimate all-day dress?

It's the holiday packing dream, isn't it? One piece of clothing that does it all; genuinely goes from beach to sightseeing to bar and looks good in all three locations without ever feeling overly formal or too casual.

This season, our T Shirt Dress is that piece. With a few carefully chosen extras, it will see you through whatever your holiday (or staycation, or everyday life!) can throw at you. Its easy but well cut shape means that it flatters a wide range of body shapes and personal styles, and it can be dressed up or down as the occasion demands. The 100% cotton slub jersey fabric feels substantial and comfortable to wear, and only gets softer with use.

 Chinese Blue T Shirt Dress

Style tips: A dress is surprisingly useful for the beach - throw it on over a bikini, add a hat and you're good to go. It's also much easier to change in and out of than sticky shorts and tees after swimming, and it covers the all important shoulders to minimise sun damage. A bright colour means that no matter how simple your outfit, you still look WOW!

Chinese Blue T Shirt Dress, Bright Violet Roxy Shirt Jacket, Galaxy Blue Classic Leather Belt, white trainers

Style notes: Travelling from air conditioned car to hot outside to outdoor seating for lunch? An extra layer that won't mind being tossed over the back of a seat or popped into a bag is your friend - step forward the Roxy Shirt Jacket, with its almost impossible to crease fabric and effortless look.

Chinese Blue T Shirt Dress, Soft White Short Cascade, Gold Classic Metallic Belt, Gold Free Spirit Earrings

Style notes: Dress things up with a short cascade or a short tie wrap to add waist enhancement, while a touch of gold (or silver, if that's the metal for you!) makes things feel a little more special without being too high maintenance for the holidays.

T Shirt dress a little too casual for you?

If your personal style requires just a touch more formality than the T Shirt dress, why not try the Sammie Dress? It has a very similar level of effortlessness and is every bit as versatile as the T Shirt dress, but with a slightly neater finish. If you're not sure which style suits you best, why not take our Personal Style Quiz to find out whether you're a Princess, Adventurer, Movie Star, Minimalist or Pixie?

I dont wear dresses much but after our recent hot spell I treated myself to the pansy dress. At 5ft 9" its a perfect length. Just above my knees. Lovely flattering shape.

Absolutely love these T shirt dresses and have bought two (so far!) in Chinese Blue and Pansy. Really flattering to wear and comfortable too, as the fabric can help cope with the hot weather. Easy to wash - shake out any wrinkles after spinning and simply hang up to dry. Just like the sleeveless version from previous seasons, the fabric can drop & lengthen the dress after washing (probably due to the weave of the fabric - and me stretching it down whilst damp) but I think that’s a bonus! My sleeveless T shirt dress from last year is now mid calf & my newer dresses with sleeves are now below my knee - and I’m 5’6”.

An excellent, versatile dress & great value for the price.

Lovely with sleeves but just too short for me as 5ft 8ins. Wonder how tall the model, and then interesting to see how it would look on Melissa at 5ft 10ins. I rely on her videos for clarity!
