7 Best Vintage Inspired Dresses To Wear To A Tea Party And Get Your 'Alice In Wonderland' On

Life is too short to not wear vintage inspired dresses when embarking on afternoon tea. Although afternoon tea is said to have been invented in the 1840s, IMO the 1950s is the decade to channel when enjoying your tea and scones.

Since the 1900s, street parties became very popular in Britain to celebrate momentous events. These stemmed from the "Peace Teas" in 1919 after the First World War and then afterwards they celebrated other events such as royal coronations.

These days, the vintage scene is booming and more women are turning towards the ladylike styles of the 1940s and '50s and the rockabilly outfits of the 1950s and '60s.

So fill your china cup with some Earl Grey, grab a slice of cake, and find your perfect dress to wear for a spot of afternoon tea!
