Tea Dresses Have Ditched Their Frumpy Rep—These 8 Prove It
Tea dresses might once have had a frumpy rep, but they are no longer just twee or old-fashioned pieces that you'll find left unloved at the back of a charity shop. Floral tea dresses have been revamped over the past few seasons thanks to brands like Rouje and Réalisation and have become an easy, go-to outfit for the influencer crowd. Self-Portrait is also now focusing on these floral-print dresses, with the typical '40s-style nipped in waist, and the style has been a big hit at Mango and Topshop, too. You might assume these are just a summer staple, but paired with black opaques and chunky boots, they make for a cheery winter look as well. Keep scrolling to shop our edit of the eight best tea dresses around.
