Pastels are not exactly my thing because I feel the best in bold colors. But sometimes I wear pastels if I like the cut. And this was the case with this tea dress that I am showing you today.
If I could turn back “fashion” time, I would go back to the 40s because I have always loved this style, especially as it relates to the cut of common dresses. More about fashion in the 40s you can read in my post “Modern 1940s style” (here).
This dress is pale pink with small floral print, blue and raspberry pink. It’s very feminine, light, airy and romantic. It seems to be so common, but I feel like a million bucks when I wear it, and I wear it often.
This dress flatters a feminine figure, and actually the 1940’s fashions were all about the hour glass figure with broad shoulders, tiny waists and full hips. If you were not naturally an hour glass shape, the clothes were designed to help you achieve the look.
This type of dress can be combined with accessories in bold colors, e.g. fuchsia – that would create an interesting contrast of colors. Having said that, I usually wear this dress with neutral accessories because I want the dress to play the main role.
So I paired it with beige, suede block heeled sandals and a basket bag. I added blue tassel earrings that match the blue flowers. The only bold accent are my fuchsia lips.
I took you for a walk to the area of Mokotowska Street.
