Style Profile | Amber Heard Shows Us How To Wear Tea Length Dresses

Amber Heard has made a bit of a splash recently in Australia’s news and not for her career or marriage to Johnny Depp but rather for her pooch smuggling (whoops!). Legal canine issues aside, Amber has been snapped out and about lately owning the relaxed cool girl bohemian vibe in some totally wearable street looks.

As we head into spring with the temps warming up, we all need to be mindful of layered outfits, easy to whip off at a moment’s notice in the sun and capable of working on their own as well as together. We’ve noticed that Amber has picked a cut that is not only flattering on her body type but most likely yours: the tea length. The hem finishes just below mid calf at the slimmest part of your leg.

A split or two is a fresh update – though the panty line point we suggest you steer clear of unless you are in actual fact walking the red carpet at the Magic Mike XXL Amsterdam premiere and schmoozing with the likes of Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello – in which case, go for it!

And yep, tea length works for flats for the days when you are hitting the pavement with errands or a lazy weekend brunch. Tea length does not have to mean ‘full skirt, circle, box pleat’, which is what pops up in the first page or two of pinterest and has arguably dominated this length for several seasons. For a chic modern interpretation pick dresses and skirts that drape and fall around your body. Cinch in your waist to avoid looking shapeless.

A lightweight, unlined anorak is your perfect companion in spring. Just enough coverage for cooler moments, light enough to be folded up into your bag when the sun is shining. Look for styles that are in luxe fabrics, it ramps up the dressy factor and transitions easily into the night.
