12 tea-length skirts to try this season
Take on the monsoon with this ladylike style
If Grace Kelly is your ultimate fashion icon, then you’ll be happy to hear that tea-length skirts are back on the racks. And with the monsoon upon us, we’re crushing hard on this not-too-short, not-too-long style.
Offering us a break from summery mini skirts, this length is perfect for the season (tea-length skirts hit at the calf, somewhere between a knee-length and a maxi). Flirty and feminine, this style works well for most body types; it highlights the narrowest part of the waist and flares out to fall delicately against your frame.
This season, we saw Tracy Reese, Alice + Olivia, Christian Dior and Proenza Schouler favouring this sophisticated style. From pretty pastel colours to monochrome and metallic, this retro silhouette took on a range of avatars. And fashion’s It girls were quick to take to the trend. Alexa Chung, Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan have all been spotted sporting the tea-length skirt.
Not sure how to wear it? Pair it with a cropped tee or a boxy jacket to have some fun with this ladylike silhouette. Click through to discover our top 12 picks for the season.
