From the best white T-shirts to a T-shirt dress that will last you seasons (but more on that soon), us fashion fans have a very particular skillset which—in the right, very specific, context—can prove invaluable. One of our party tricks is knowing exactly what to wear when we move into a new season, and with spring basically here it’s officially time to start considering our warm-weather wardrobes.

For most of us, this means putting away the outerwear and thermal layers and returning to our long-lost—but no less beloved—statement tees, day dresses, and sandals. Even if the latter do need to be worn with a sock while we wait for the weather to catch up…

For many, the arrival of spring also means getting rid of all the moody hues and instead reuniting with a lighter, brighter palette of whites, pastels, and bold primary colors. For a lot of us, however, black is very much a neutral. Entirely seasonless and by no means restricted to the colder months, black can often be one of the most impactful color options for the warmer months.

Somewhat unexpected amidst a sea of white and pastels, the seemingly contradictory visual of a heavily-hued piece which is in fact super lightweight and free-flowing is actually one of the fashion industry’s simplest—but best-kept—secrets.

Enter, the Cos T-shirt dress.

Cos Pleated Skirt T-Shirt Dress

A boxy-fit, oversized black T-shirt complete with a dropped waist and a pleated skirt, it’s one of those throw-on dresses that you don’t realize how wise a buy it was until a few months down the line.

Just as perfect worn with your favorite blue Adidas and a crossbody bag for a weekend running errands as it is with an oversized black clutch bag and heels for a fancy dinner with the girls, we’ll also be wearing this weekly in the office with our chunky loafers and a good sock.

Now, if someone could just let the wind and rain know what’s up that’d be great…
