What to Wear to Tea
Tea is a classic and beloved ritual for many. Whether you are attending a formal tea setting or just hanging out with friends or family, it is important to consider what you will wear. Read on for tips on dressing for tea time.
Going to a Formal Tea Party
If you are attending a formal tea, you will want to dress in a polished, tailored outfit:
- Women: A knee-length dress or skirt, a blouse and other smart pieces can help you create a sophisticated look that is perfect for tea.
- Men: A well-fitting suit with a crisp shirt and tie will do the trick.
Dressing for a Casual Tea
When attending a casual tea, you can often stay within the same attire, but make it more comfortable.
- Women: Choose comfortable items like sundresses, leggings and a nice top, and sandals or ballet flats.
- Men: Khaki pants, linen shirts, and loafers or boat shoes should be a good option.
Your choice of green should also provide an appropriate level of formality. If attending a more formal tea, you may want to steer away from bright, bold colors and instead opt for something more subtle or neutral.
Finally, no matter what kind of tea you’re attending, it’s important to remember to accessorize. A nice piece of jewelry, scarf, or hat can go a long way in rounding out the perfect tea look.
Tea is a pleasant and timeless activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Whether your tea gathering is casual or formal, following these tips can help you dress appropriately—and feel confident in your ensemble!
