Striped Tea Dress

Spring Trends – Chapter 1


Stripes On The Catwalk




Stripes have been spotted on the runway and carpet for years and are an ongoing seasonal trend that can be worn in a variety of attire, in versatile styles to suit different female figures.



  The Striped Tea Dress

Striped Tea Dress

I find for shorter females like myself, vertical stripes lengthen the silhouette.  This balances out my daddy long legs too, I guess that’s what you would call ‘my body shape.’ Yeah, not ideal.  Personally, I have always been cautious about wearing stripes; I guess I didn’t want to look like a zebra.  Except our striped tea dress is perfect, the 1960’s inspired vintage tea dress has varied angles of stripes that creates a very flattering figure.

This is also available in orange and for me I would wear it with wedges and a cross over bag in the summer. The blend of cotton and linen will ensure a cooler summer in the hotter months. The cap sleeve is ideal for disguising broader shoulders and for anyone concious about wearing sleeveless. The fitted top draws in at the waist, skating over the hips and stomach, which is very complimentary for taller and pear shaped women.



How To Wear Stripes

Here’s what I put together with my favourite colour this season. This occasion wear is the perfect Easter outfit to look your Sunday best. Don’t worry I have checked it out and its comfortable enough for you to have your years supply of chocolate eggs.
