5 OF THE BEST TEA DRESSES

By Eleanor Dunne, 27 October 2018

As the chills set in, it doesn't take long for your winter wardrobe to quickly turn into an ongoing roundabout of heavy knits and jeans. Don’t get us wrong, we love those cosy neutral layers, but it's also nice to put some lightness and colour into your cold-climate life. Enter the tea dress. Whatever the weather, this fail-safe classic can be styled to protect you from the elements, while still looking as effortless as it does in the warmer months. See below for our five faves right now...

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.

Old school

This vintage-inspired number is giving us some serious 40s vibes. Top tip for making a short-sleeve dress like this one work for winter? Layer a turtleneck underneath or an oversized knit on top – this one is even long enough for a secret leggings moment.

Monochrome magic

A monochrome dress is always a win in our books, mainly because it goes with everything. Plus, the long sleeves and floor-skimming length of this one makes it cold-weather apropes. If it’s too girlie for you, dial it down with lace-up boots and a leather jacket.

Wrap star

We don't know what we love about this dress more, the polka dots or the slinky wrap silhouette. Plus, with party season just around the corner, this one is perfect for your work shindig. Just add some fancy red strappy heels and statement earrings and you've got your grown-up evening look sorted.

The little things

You may think it’s getting too cold for a mini dress, but we beg to differ – a big faux-fur coat and some sheer black tights is all you need to make this one work for the chilly months. And anyway, the floral print is so swish it’s totally worth a bit of a breeze on your knees, no?
