Although I was tempted to grab the cashmere sweaters from underneath my bed the very second that Labor Day hit, summer left behind a hot, humid forecast that has since convinced me otherwise. Dressing for the awkward transitional period between summer and fall is tough — that's why I've been looking towards street style for some much needed inspiration. The latest celebrity outfit I plan on copying? Emily Ratajkowski's t-shirt dress: The perfect long-sleeve mini that, spoiler alert, is less than $100.
Wednesday, the model was photographed in New York City in a long-sleeve henley dress from The Line By K, which is made and designed in Los Angeles. Other than its surprisingly low $89 price point, Ratajkowski's dress is the solution to your transitional-dressing woes.
Think of it this way: A long-sleeve mini dress balances out the heat, but it's more season-appropriate than that strappy tank dress you wore every day of summer.
The snap-closures (which Ratajkowski let hang loose) and the mini length make the dress casual enough to pair with white sneakers, but the fitted silhouette and black fabric mean it can be dressed up with ease. Ratajkowski topped off the look with her signature aesthetic: cat-eye sunglasses, delicate gold jewelry, and perfectly imperfect hair.
Get The Look
Ratajkowski joins the heard of models and celebrities flocking to New York City for fashion week, which officially kicks off today. Modeling the true versatility of her dress, Ratajkowski took her look from the streets of Manhattan to the US Open at Arthur Ashe Stadium with her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard.
In the spirit of making the early days of fall dressing even the slightest bit easier, I've rounded up the best Ratajkowski-inspired t-shirt dresses on the market right now. Shop them all, below, and enjoy looking and feeling comfortable for the remaining weeks of warm weather.
