HOW ASOSERS DO TEA DRESSES
By Maybelle Morgan, 28 October 2017
We know, we know. It’s not summer any more. But one of last season’s fave silhouettes is following us straight into FW17 and we’re pretty pleased about it. Yes, it's the oh-so-pretty tea dress, brightening up your wardrobe with ditsy florals, retro polka dots or acid brights. See how everyone at ASOS is wearing the trend their way…
Dress for the weather you want, right? And Siobhan evokes those sunny vibes with this fluttery yellow tea dress with semi-sheer cap sleeves and asymmetric hem. To avoid going too English countryside, she jazzes up look with some bold '80s-style red vinyl pants and chunky Nike AF1s.

Two for the price of one
Why settle for just one print when you can have two? This clashy ditsy column dress with wrap-tie detailing gives a flower-power overhaul. To break up the pretty, Kady layers up with a sporty adidas top with monochrome tipping and finishes with some casj Converse high-tops.

If you’re going for impact, there’s nothing like a smattering of florals with a dash of neon thrown in for good measure. Francesca keeps all eyes on the high-neck dress (with a sassy back cut-out) by adding layers of gold necklaces and some retro-look white heeled boots.

Lady in red
Sometimes less is more and when you’re already working with a super-feminine silhouette (ruched sleeves, dipped hem and all), all you need is a splash of color and you’re good to go. Lori finishes her bright scarlet look with some disco-ready silver pointed boots.

After something a little bit different? It's the English countryside meets '70s track star with this eclectic ditsy tea dress with sports tipping detail. To stop the outfit from looking too twee, Rachel goes hard on mashing up the influences and layers it up with a metallic ribbed zip-up, finishing with glittery socks and furry backless loafers.
