6 Approved ways to wear a tea-length Dress


Hi everyone,

A "tea length" dress (so named because it's what a woman would wear to the tea table in the 1920s, according to Emily Post) falls about three to four inches below the knee and has lately become a great evening alternative to the floor-sweeping gown. It is a very feminine yet elegant silhouette and a very conservative option for the bride or bridesmaids not willing to commit to the traditional floor length dress. Today I am sharing 5 tips on how to wear a tea-length dress.

  • Look for Fits that Float away from your Legs;
  • Cinch your waistline to create balance;

  • Wear with stiletto and strap sandals. Heels length should be a minimum 4'';
  • Keep accessories simple;
  • Go for a soft and feminine hairstyle (updos or beach waves);
  • Think off-shoulder or plunging V-neck for an ultra-sexy yet elegant look;

XoXo,

  4. I love this length of the dress. Your dress is so beautiful. I agree with the tips. This length needs high heels but not too high for me. It is also uncomfortable. Thank you for sharing this post with My Red Carpet.
