KORSIS T-Shirt Dress with Pockets

KORSIS T-Shirt Dress with Pockets

This cute t-shirt dress ticks off all the boxes for a good summer dress. It's super soft and features just enough Spandex to give a little stretch where you need it. The style is versatile enough to dress up or down as needed, and the pockets are incredibly handy for long days of traveling. Choose from several solid colors, geometrics, or floral patterns.

Amazon User Review: "This dress was just as expected. It was loose fitting yet stylish. I actually wore it around the house and then when one of my children would bring a friend home for dinner, I simply put a pair of sandals on and the dress took on a new look. To say it is versatile is an understatement. I have the sleeveless one as well, but they are both great for the beach, for the house and for going out, It is very soft and comfortable as well. I would definitely recommend this dress."

I really like the dress and as another reviewer remarked , it travels wonderfully! You could even roll it up and carry it in a handbag if you had to ! It does not wrinkle! I am thinking of ordering another.
