Tea Dresses

1940s Style

Love the 1940s? Maybe you love the style of the land girls or a practical tea dress style. That post-war era, despite the hardships saw the birth of several iconic styles. Vintage inspired 1940s tea dresses remain a style staple for any nostalgic gal. We've created a 1940s Style Edit for any of you gals who like the era. The classic 1940s tea dress would have a neat nipped in waist and flared skirt. Typically, a tea dress would be made form a floaty fabric that is both practical, comfortable and pretty. Here at Joanie, we love to reimagine the iconic 1940s tea dress, offering a vintage-inspired style with a twist. Our Natalie Toile De Jouy Print Tea Dress is a classic example, with a fun print featuring bicycles and cats, and of course has pockets!

50s dresses

1950s Style

If the 1950s era is more your style, you’ll love our range of 1950s-inspired dresses like the Betty Floral Stripe Dress. 1950s fashion was bursting with colourful prints, nipped in waists and full skirts. Think Betty Draper in the early days of Mad Men. The dresses of the 1950s often featured novelty prints like our Vanda Lobster Print Dress. This is an era synonymous with fun, when rock ‘n’ roll was playing on the jukebox and the term 'teenager' was first coined. Young people were expressing their style and had more disposable income and freedom than ever before! For more 1950s Style, you can now shop our edit.
