The Tea dress

Friday, 12 August 2016


The tea dress. A staple since the 1940's but origins relating back to the orient and prime factors taken from the classic kimono. No longer worn for just afternoon tea this piece can be worn casually or formally. A much loved piece that has been rekindled with this summer but isn't set to leave for autumn/ winter 16' either. 
This particular tea dress is from ASOS I really love the flippy pleats around the shoulders the widened shoulder creates a smaller torso and a lengthened leg. I'm not sure about the tightened tie right on the top of the waist on my figure however. This dress is a classic block colour ( not my usual patterned  busyness but I quite like the simplicity of the look. The colour is slightly more brown, I would probably describe it as a reddy brown rust colour. Perfect for the upcoming autumn months as well therefore the perfect transitional colour and shape.
