Tea Party Dresses
Don’t go mad as a hatter trying to find precious tea party dresses. Enter a garden or sitting room, with a long table at the center of the space. Look upon a beautiful teapot just waiting to be poured into the fine china that lines the table. Teacups sit daintily on saucers. Towering trays, three tiers high, are lined with sweet little treats.
Afternoon tea is served; what will you wear for the occasion? The scents of petit fours, tarts and scones waft through the air. The aroma of freshly baked cookies invites the pouring of piping hot tea, ready for cookies to be gingerly dipped within. Each flavor of tea lingers in the air, too. A hint of citrus mingles with jasmine. Cinnamon sweetens the space, alongside other herbs and spices. At the elegant event, dress the part in tea party dresses.
Pair dresses with cropped jackets or light sweaters. Accent an ensemble with a broad, floppy hat—decorated with a bold bow, striking feathers or a feminine band of ribbon. Create a similar effect with a dramatically embellished headband. Finish an outfit with tasteful accessories. Adorn a jacket with a brooch; deck yourself out in pearls or silk scarves. For practicality bring a petite handbag, but for fashion's sake make sure it coordinates flawlessly with chosen shoes.
For the actual tea party dresses, enjoy the refinement of knee-length designs and long or short sleeves. Venture into sleeveless dresses for women to extend styling options—keeping warm under light cardigans. Incorporate pattern that encapsulates the essence of the event. Allow floral decorations to outfit a dress; take to soft color palettes. In girls dresses, elevate the formality with lovely tea party dresses (made voluminous enough for teatime and playtime alike) or relax the look with sundresses.
