Perhaps you don't have tea time every afternoon or don't drink tea at all, but tea length dresses can be part of your wardrobe! A tea length hem that hits below the knee and above the ankles can be extremely flattering on many figures with the right materials, accessories and shoes.
Always pair this silhouette with heels so that the leg you are flashing is emphasized as much as possible. Because many tea length dresses also have higher necklines or sleeves, consider pulling part of your hair back to show off any dress details. A pair of sparkly earrings or a prominent cocktail ring would work well with this style.
Recently, there's been a huge increase in tea length wedding dresses for blushing brides and tea length hems for wedding guests, alike. Check out these sophisticated styles below and consider adding a similar frock to your own wardrobe.
