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, becoming an easy go-to outfit for the influencer crowd. Rixo is also now focusing on '40s-style floral-print dresses with nipped-in waists (yes, the most flattering formula in the world). The style has been a big hit at Mango and Topshop too.
You might assume these are just a summer staple, but they make for a cheery spring-day look as well when paired with a denim jacket and chunky trainers. Keep scrolling to shop our edit of the 17 best tea dresses around.
