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 Plovdiv, Nashville, and Chattanooga have discovered them. T shirt dresses are generally seen in casual, chic, and comfortable 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.
