Hi, I'm Seane Marie, and I'm a fashion stylist. Let's face it. There are few occasions where your ensemble can rival Julia Roberts in "Pretty Woman." A tea party is one of these occasion where you really need to dress up. So, have fun with it. Following a few basic rules will ensure you're appropriately dressed for the finest company. Let's start with the length of your dress. While it may seem obvious, many ladies forget that the dress should be at least tea length or to the knee. Next, you'll want to consider the time of year you're dressing for and if the event is taking place indoors or outdoors. If a tea party is in early spring, you might want to consider bringing a cardigan or a light jacket. An outdoor event allows a hat to be a perfect accessory for your dress. Today, our model Chelsea is wearing a rose pattern tea length dress by Maggy London. I've polished her look with a very of the moment wide brim visor and a simple bracelet by Liz James. Last, finish your look with a summery peep toe or wedge, like this pair by Me Too. Now, remember your manners and enjoy a lovely afternoon of tea.
