Love Fleabag’s red dress? Here’s where to buy one just like it

Calling all Phoebe Waller-Bridge fans! We’ve scoured the net to find the Fleabag dress of your dreams…

As a rule, we do not aspire to copy Fleabag’s life choices. Her wardrobe, on the other hand, is a thing we do envy. 

The show may not have set out to make any fashion statements, but Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s striking wardrobe choices (such as her iconic backless jumpsuit) have prompted viewers to rush from their televisions to their smartphones in a desperate bid to track them down for themselves. So it should come as little surprise to learn that, in the two weeks since the finale of Fleabag’s second season, Lyst has reported that online searches for red dresses is up by 38%. And, yeah, it’s all thanks to the gorgeous, floral number that Waller-Bridge’s character donned for the last episode. 

Speaking to The Guardian about the standout wardrobe choice, the show’s costume designer Ray Holman said the red dress was “perfect for Fleabag… slightly inappropriately short hemline and good ethics”. 

Naturally, this is something we’re all keen to emulate.

Sadly the exact dress, which is from ethical clothing brand Reformation, is no longer in stock. But don’t let that get you down, because you can still achieve this perfect summer look with another gorgeous red tea dress-style frock.

With that in mind, we’ve found a selection of red summer dresses, all of which feature a flourish of florals and that tea dress silhouette we love so much.

Shop our ideas below and get yourself a slice of that Fleabag magic. 

  • Faithful The Brand

    We love these adorable puff sleeves (a trend that’s been blowing up recently) and, even though this dress isn’t strictly tea dress in shape, it still nips in at the waist, which scores serious fashion points from us. 

    £155

  • & Other Stories

    And Other Stories red floral dress

    This fresh, fruity red is perfect for summer and the tropical pattern makes it the ideal holiday dress. 

    £55

  • Staud

    Love that hourglass shape, but not so keen on the above-the-knee length? We’ve mixed things up a little here with this elegant midi number. 

    £200

  • Madewell

    Take Fleabag’s summer dress look as inspiration for one of the weddings you’re attending this year, and bag this Madewell dress for a more dressed up version. 

    £155

  • Arket

    Beautifully bright and flowy in shape, you can enjoy the summer rays in this without feeling restricted.

  • Monki

    This jersey tea dress is a quick win thanks to its budget-friendly price and versatility. Dress it up with bright mules, or take it easy and pair with your favourite trainers. 

    £25

  • Self Portrait

    If you’re feeling inspired by Fleabag’s bold colour choice but want something a little more ‘wow’, we think this jaw-dropping Self Portrait red dress could do the trick.

    £320

  • Rixo

    Rixo can do no wrong in our eyes, so it’s no wonder we fell for this floral, long red dress as soon as we saw it. 

    £275

  • Zara

    Pink and red are the clashing colours we can’t get enough of, and we love how the come together in the print on this floral tea dress.

    £29.99

  • Warehouse

    Florals doesn’t always mean flowers: this dandelion midi is a cute twist on the typical summer print. 

    £36

  • Rhode

    We couldn’t resist the vivacious shade of this Rhode dress, and we bet you won’t be able to either. 

    £370

  • H&M

    H&M are always here to save the day, and if you’re struggling with what to wear to a BBQ this weekend, we reckon this dainty tea dress is exactly what you need. 

    £19.99
