Tent dresses were first made popular in the 1960s and invention of the dress is credited to Hannah Troy.
Tent dresses are narrow at the neckline and wider at the hem-line. They hang loose from shoulder to reach the hemline down the hips. They do not have a marked waistline and are usually belt-less. These dresses may be sleeveless, shoulder-less, fluffy sleeved or long-sleeved.
They are mostly done in an A-line silhouette. Tent dresses are easy to wear clothing items. They may feature slip-on or zippers.
Most of the tent dresses are quite short in length and may range from length of a mini dress to below- the- knee length.They are mostly worn as mini dresses but can sometimes be short enough to worn as a shirt. Some may be short enough to give a glimpse of crotch or underwear.
Wear with: They may be worn by women of all age groups and any figure-type.
You can pair them with skinny jeans, leggings, jacket or sweater on a colder evening.
Wear skinny halter tops or spaghetti underneath shoulder-less tent dresses.
