Not quite short, not quite long, tea-length dresses provide a different silhouette that switches up your style. But, because most ladies don't wear them as often, they can be a little bit tough to match with your shoes. If you've got a tea-length dress, get a little inspiration on what shoes make your frock look its best.
Strappy sandals are fab for your tea-length dress in the spring and summer but work during the fall and winter months too. Just add a pair of tights. Yes, that's right, you can wear tights with your strappy sandals, so rock the look during any season. If your dress is more formal, opt for a high stiletto, strappy sandal. If you're working with a daytime look, flat sandals look just as fab as heels.
Pumps are a classic pairing with a tea-length dress. Try yours with a princess-cut frock if you've got a fancier event. They also look fab with a more casual tea-length dress for attending a garden party, wedding or any other slightly dressy daytime event.
Because tea-length dresses are so classic, sometimes they run the risk of looking a little bit matronly. If you want to make sure that your dress looks more youthful than your grandmother's, add a statement shoe. Try shoes in bright colors or cool prints, or ones with intricate designs and embellishments, to spice up your look and make it more fashion forward.
Peep-toe shoes are a little bit classic and a little bit girly, making them perfect for complementing your tea-length frock. Keep your look basic by matching your peep-toe shoes to your dress, or try a metallic peep-toe. Colors look fab too. Spice up your peep toe by trying it in an interesting fabric like suede or velvet. Just be sure to get yourself a manicure first, because your toes will be on full display!
