As Spring fashion goes ultra retro chic, Clutchettes from across the pond to Hollywood are all smitten by yet another of the season’s hottest trends, the Mini Tea Dress. Inspired by early fashion’s tea gowns, the usually floral printed, light and flirty dresses went mini in the 1940’s and have gone contemporary for Spring 2008! Get trendy like Hollywood starlets Paris Hilton and Lily Allen by matching your dress with opaque tights. For a subtle yet sexy look try wearing your mini tea dress with a pair of seamed stockings and round toe shoes. For complete vintage irresistibility, a red lip would ice the cake!

While designer’s like Oscar De La Renta’s floral tea gowns give that stunning red carpet look, the Mini Tea Dress can be dressed up or down for any casual spring occasion. An extremely versatile piece, a solid a mini tea dress can be perfect for drinks with girlfriends or can be charming in floral for a first date. Comfortable yet flattering, the mini tea dress is the most easy-to-wear dress of the Spring.

  • Hi Ladies:

    Sorry for the delayed response. Tea Dresses can be found at Target, Forever 21, Topshop, H&M, Shopbop, JCPenny and a host of other retailers. Tea Dresses usually hit just above or below the knee.
