After months of outfitting yourself in shapeless layers of fabric, it's finally warm enough outside to ditch your restricting outerwear in favor of something a little more carefree. Enter the jersey dress — a form-fitting (yet comfortable) and appropriate alternative to walking outside with nothing on. The stretchiness of the fabric basically feels like a second skin, so yeah, it's pretty damn close you guys.
Not only are jersey dresses easy to just throw on in the morning, they're also surprisingly chic. Kim K wears them all the time and still manages to look effortlessly put together. (I mean, hers is probably Alaïa and she's got her glam squad and everything, but you catch my drift.)
The best thing about these convenient little sheaths are their versatility. You can dress them up with a pair of T-strap heels like Kim, or dress them down with sneakers and a bomber jacket. Try the look yourself with some of our of-the-moment options in the gallery above, starting at $20(!!!).
