5 OF THE BEST TEA DRESSES

The right stripes
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few months, you probably know that animal print is having a major moment this season. This zebra-stripe dress is a great way to immerse yourself in the trend. We're predicting this will be your day-to-spontaneous-night-out go-to for the season.
This vintage-inspired number is giving us some serious 40s vibes. Top tip for making a short-sleeve dress like this one work for work? Layer with a black tailored blazer and slip-on mules – add a pair of statement earrings to really top off the look.
The little things
You just can't beat a floral mini dress on a summer's day. Fact. This style is making a case for cute with the long-sleeve silhouette and button up front, and can we talk about that fabric? Silky-silky lightweight jacquard is screaming the vintage vibes, and we're into it.
