T-Shirt Dresses first appeared on Chictopia's streetstyle gallery in Summer 2008 seen on Chattanooga blogger Snowshoe. She styled her gray t-shirt dress with a gray IZOD vintage cardigan sweater, gray Doc Martins boots, and yellow ascot scarf. Since then, T-Shirt Dresses have grown in popularity as bloggers from Los Angeles, Plovdiv, and Chattanooga have discovered them. T-Shirt Dresses are generally seen in casual, chic, and basic style. In July 2012, Chictopia wrote an editorial about DIY Men's Shirt Into A Cut-Out Dress. Popular brands of T-Shirt Dresses are LF, Zara, Gap, H&M, and American Apparel.
